I don't understand...why do they have to move out of their current home? Isn't that a palace as well?

State Events take place either at Fredensborg Palace, or the the Royal Receptions Rooms at Christiansborg Palace or at Christians VII. Palace which is one of the four Amalienborg Palaces. As Frederik and Mary will also use the Palace which is now renovated once Frederik is King it should be possible to host there smaller official dinners and receptions.

I don't think they will move out of Fredensborg altogether but maintain it as a weekend/country home with the newly renovated palace in Copenhagen as their main city residence. Perhaps it will be like Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle for QEII.

Amalienborg palace is apparently polluted but something is being done and there is no delay on the couple moving in this year.

The palace was found to be polluted (oil & gasoline on the lawn; asbestos in the pipes and use of lead paint) during the renovation process...Now that the renovation is complete, all of these harmful agents have been removed. These were part of the reasons why the renovations took so long and were so expensive.

No, it is a smaller house attached to the Palace called Kancelihuset.

Fredensborg if i'm right, is a bit of a travel to copenhagen, and if rumours are true we may have a new King and Queen soon, and they will need to be near the capital.
They will probably use it for weekends & holidays away, and possible parties.

Actually it is only about 40 km from Amalienborg and can easily be done, as evident by the fact that Fredensborg is already "main" recidence of the Queen, with atleast 6 months of living a year. And she maneges to get by.

But as I pointed out, at Fredensborg they only live at a smaller house, at Amalienborg they would get one of the 4 mansions.

But it's only Frederik, Mary, Christian and Isabella. Plus a certain amount of staff.
They've managed for nearly 5 years. A mansion is going to be little use.
If they wanted they could of lived in Fredensborg Palace, and not Chancellery House.

The Crown Prince Couple will use the top part of the palace as their private residence. The Crown Prince Couple's staff will also use the same palace permanently. The palace will be their main residence. They currently live at the Chancellery House. Fredensborg Palace is used by Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik and their staff. Therefore the CP Couple cannot live at Fredensborg "if they want".

I also realise this, but i'm sure Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik and the staff would have relocated. If the Crown Prince Couple would of liked to of lived in the Palace.

I know little about these things, but isn't a move to the Amalienborg Palace a sign of upgrading the Crown Prince's position as he, inevitably, gets closer to being King?

When the Crown Prince Couple become King and Queen, then and only then will they move into Fredensborg Palace. It's like Queen Elizabeth II and the Prince of Wales. Prince Charles will move into Buckingham Palace only when he is King. The same goes for CP Frederik and his family as far as Fredensborg and Marselisborg is concerned since these are only used by the reigning King/Queen. Fredensborg Palace is used by the Queen for various activities in her role as Head of State.

If Frederik VIII's palace was habitable at the time of the Crown Prince wedding in 2004, then CP Frederik and CP Mary would have been able to move in immediately. But the renovation and upgrade of the palace delayed it by 5-6 years.

But yes...CP Frederik and CP Mary are taking on more official duties since the Queen is getting older and Prince Henrik has semi-retired and spends more time at his Chateaux in France.

No, not upgrading just tradition The crown princely couple has always had one of the palaces at their disposal. The Frederik VIII's palace which Frederik and Mary will occupy was renovated in 1935-36 for the then crown princely couple, later king Frederik IX and queen Ingrid.

It's interesting to know how many rooms are at the private floor - guess that at least 20? One possibility is to see how many windows there are but guess that there are many rooms that have no windows... well as much I have been visiting several mansions and palaces...

What do You think?
