I will also add numbers to my comments. Numbers that correspond with the numbers on this floorplan: Floorplan

Let's start with this official photo: Tapestry Hall
#20 - Gobelinsalen = The Tapestry-hall. This hall is furnished and decorated in the style the mansion had when it was taken over by the DRF back in the late 1700's.

Mary with Ziggy and the main stairs: Main staircase
#1 - Hovedtrappen = the main staircase.

The Colour Chamber, Mary's office, Mary's reception room and the Conference room
#18 Top - Fanegemakket = The colour-room. Here official guests are welcomed by M&F. When Frederik become king, the colours of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment will be stored here.
#8 Bottom left - Marys kontor = Mary's office.
#7 Middle right - Forgemak = Front/reception room for Mary's office. And presumably where her secretary works. - The artwork, depicting the world, it meant to remind people that one is merely a humble thing in a big, big world.
#2 Bottom right - Mødelokalet = The conference room. The psychedelic painting in the ceiling depicts the universe with the Sun as center.

The Knights Hall-A
The Knights Hall-B
#9 - Riddersalen = The Knights Hall/Great Hall. - The largest room in the residence. The stools the family is sitting on for the official photo are from 1828. And there are 10 of them. Five chandeliers are suspended from the ceiling. When Frederik become king, this is the room they will emerge from when going out on the balcony.
When Queen Ingrid lived here, she always served tea in this room at 16.00. So Frederik has many fond memories from this room.

The Great Dining Room-A
The Great Dining Room-B
#24 - Taffelsalen = The Great Dining Room. The doors are in a classical style. The mirrors in the niches are specially made. The decorations on the wall and ceiling are brought back to how they were in the 1830's.
This is where M&F entertain official guests - and large parties presumably.

The Garden room and private stairs
#3 Top - Havesalen = The Garden Room. Along with the Great Hall the second major representation room in the residence.
#14 Bottom - Trappe = The stairs to M&F's private rooms on the top floor. The lamps are supposed to depict bubbles in water rising towards the surface.

The private dining room and the Throne Chamber
#11 Top - Spisestuen = The private dining room. This is the room where M&F entertain private guests.
#5 Bottom left - The door from Trongemakket = The Throne Chamber opening into the dining room. - I believe that room is now used for reading, serving coffee and listening to music.
- Havetrappen = The garden stairs. Going into the garden behind the mansion, from the Tapestry Hall.

Private kitchen-A
Private kitchen-B
#12 - Køkken-alrum = Kitchen-Family room. - M&F's private kitchen and with four lively children, probably very much where most activities take place during daytime hours.

Butler's pantry
#4 - Anretterkøkken = Butler's pantry. The beautifully decorated ceiling has been brought back to it's original style.

And here is this issue of BB: BB06, 2017

I should have liked to have written about what Mary had been up to, but reading the articles, there sure ain't much meat on them bones!
Mange tak! Lovely to see these pictures again; one can only imagine what goes on inside!

You are all welcome.

Alas, I doubt we will ever see more than a glimpse here and there from M&F's private rooms. Perhaps in the background of the odd family snapshot published and that's it.

The Royal Lifeguard turned out in arms today around noon.

An alarm went out and according to the standard procedure the sentries lowered their rifles to the ready position.
A patrol was sent to the location of the alarm, with arms at the ready, to investigate. At the same time other guardsmen surrounded and secured the mansion.

It turned out to be a false alarm. A motion sensor apparently went off when a fireengine passed.

See the dramatic photos here: https://www.bt.dk/krimi/alarm-ved-am...k-deres-vaaben

Does Amalienborg has the panoramic view on an industrial site?

Have to say its not the most majestic of views from that angle but if I remember rightly isn't there an opera house or something over the water?

The first photo? That one with the view on four huge chimneys of an industrial site?

I saw inside Amalienborg Palace King Frederick iX inchanged office with such a lot of pictures of his wife and his 3 girls. I bought in the shop one of my best books : Juvelerne I det Danske Kongehus by Bjarne Steen Jensen.

They have a view across the harbor and the Opera House on the other side, but of course that also includes harbor installations.

The Amalienborg side of the harbor is very picturesque, the other side down to the Opera House less so.
But try imagine how it looked a 100 years ago!

Keep in mind that Amalienborg was never supposed to be a palace, It's four city mansions in downtown Copenhagen where there is lots of activity.
Fredensborg on the other hand is more like a "proper palace".
