Due to QMII turning 75 next month, BB has compiled a few pics from inside Amalienborg and Chateau Cayz and they have had a lifestyle expert say a lot of blah blah based on the photos. I'll spare you that ordeal and instead caution you! You may wish to have a pair of sunglasses in your hands as some of the furnitures are... patterned...!

We start at Amalienborg:

Here is a rare glimpse into QMII's dressing room:

QMII with typical self-irony has labelled herself and her family as "luxury-gypsies" in the sense that they don't have a permanent home as such.

Danish people are very minimal. Their residencies are very classy, like their residents

Just I was imagining a different dressing room for her, with the many outfits, shoes, hats, gloves, gala dresses, etc...... I imagine all of them into a plastic bag like when they come out of a dry cleaner. into a closet , organize by colour, draws for gloves, scarfs, etc.... the same I would imagine for Mary too!

This is the dressing room of a 75 year old woman, probably furnished and decorated decades ago. I'm sure her outfits and accessories are in drawers, closets etc. Only a small part of the room can be seen. The clothes and shoes in the photo are chosen for a visit to the U.S. and are waiting to be packed.

I'm sure Mary and Marie and all the younger royals have more modern dressing rooms.

You are welcome, Tarlita.

Not being an expert on dressing rooms it seems to me that the dressing room depicted here is just as much a workspace for QMII's ladys maid. In the sense that outfits, shoes and dresses are stored here, mended, laid out and checked by the LM.
I can well imagine QMII getting dressed and putting on her warpaint in her bedroom or perhaps in a secondary dressing room. Just like the one Mary has at their mansion at Amalienborg. If you look at the floorplan, you can clearly see that there is a kind of wardrobe/workplace for Mary's ladys maid and stylist (9) and a separate dressing room for Mary (7) right next to their bedroom (6). https://app.box.com/s/qlpm67z2u5lxvfir8zw5u3xfulnwx7qx
But QMII and PH have separate bedrooms, that's no secret.

ADDED: #1 - Nanny's room.
#2 For the twins, at least initially, but they may have taken over the two vacant/guestrooms that are not numbered, or at least one of them by now.
#3 & 4 = Children's rooms, Perhaps Christian and Bella?
#5 = Frederik's dressing room.

In Billed Blade #27, 2015.
We are told that Joachim and our Marie have finally moved into their new home.

Joachim told BB's reporter Ken Richter: "We have moved in".
The house has gone through a thorough interior renovation to suit their taste and needs.

It may be about time to give Gråsten Manor it's own thread.

Especially if, as it is very much hoped in Southern Jutland(!), M&F intends to stay there for the main part of their summer holidays and perhaps even take over.

So speculations about what will happen to Gråsten Manor once M%F take the front seat has started in earnest.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #29, 2015.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Gråsten Manor was a wedding present from the state to the Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Ingrid back in 1935. They started using the place in 1936.
Wedding present in the sense that the state owns the place, but the right to use it befell to the DRF.
However, since 1935 very little interior renovation has been done! So the place need more that two coats of paint and I think it's safe to assume that the interior is "charming" and something that would make producers of antique shows drool.
The exterior of the building is well kept, that is paid for by the state, but sanitation, electric systems, wallpaper that is probably going to be the next major project for the DRF, or rather M&F. And they would probably find several local and very wealthy sponsors when a thorough renovation is to start.

One local enthusiast who knows the place very well indeed is a Poul Olsen, and he says: "It is perhaps not a simple task just to take over the manor and move in right away. Inside Gråsten Manor is not offering the wild luxury many perhaps believe. It is certainly not a luxury summer cottage.
Younger residents may wish to alter a good deal of the interior which stems back to the 1930's.
The bathrooms with classic terazzo-floor (*) is for example something that needs a good deal of work. But also the living quarters of the employees need a loving hand".
On the other hand there are lots of rooms at Gråsten.

QMII said at an interview in 2012 about M&F taking over the place: "We all love to stay at Gråsten and the Crown Princely Couple fortunately very much so, because they over time shall take over the place. It is to take place already while I'm around, because it certainly is the idea that they shall have Gråsten, if they can cope. But now we'll see. For the time being they need to find their own legs".

-----------

If I am to predict anything. It will be that M&F will officially take over Gråsten within the next three-five years and that will also be the beginning of a major renovation of the manor. Judging from the odd pics it seems M&F have finally furnished their own home at Amalienborg and Kancellihuset at Fredensborg has also been renovated.
So I predict M&F will use Amalienborg as their main winter home. Kancellihuset as a weekend retreat and perhaps official summer residence outside the school summer holiday.
They will then stay at Gråsten for the main part of the six week school summer holiday, and perhaps during the Christmas holiday as well. Because we must expect M&F to begin hosting the larger Christmas celebrations now. A renovated Gråsten would be ideal, because it is larger than Marselisborg and more practical for larger family gatherings, after all with J&M we are now talking eight children plus nannies and other staff that need accommodation.
Trend will be used for the shorter family breaks, like the Easter holiday and the Autumn holiday.

That means that QMII will use Marselisborg for their summer, Christmas and Easter holidays. It's better suited for two people and a couple of friends. And being located in Aarhus it offers better opportunities for the Regent Couple to enjoy culture and art. Not to mention QMII's passion for archeology and pre-history! - And, and this is something we have to consider as well, the very advanced Aarhus Hospital is nearby.

Gråsten is after all located at the edge of a very small town and that means it's safer to take the family out riding bikes along the country lanes than in Aarhus. Even though there is a forest right next to Marselisborg there is much more traffic there.
Also, I believe M&F are more into enjoying the countryside, whether that is on foot, bike or horse. The Regent Couple are, and have always been, more city-dwellers in that respect.

So to sum up:
Amalienborg: Winter and main residence.
Gråsten: The school summer holidays and perhaps Christmas as well.
Trend: Weekends, Easter and Autumn holiday.
Kancellihuset: Summer, outside the school summer holiday and a weekend retreat.

There sure a lots of expectations on F&M....
(I mean in general - not just your post)

Will they ever be allowed to spend a week or two in the Caribbean or somewhere else, should they wish to?

thank you Muhler for your excellent post on Gråsten. It seems Frederik is very fond of it and so has Mary and their family. Looks like an ideal place for an active family.
It seems so far this month, the CP family has stayed there

I think horseback riding is something that they Mary and Frederik enjoy doing.

Probably.

Four weeks at Gråsten in the summer and two weeks somewhere else sounds plausible to me and there is always the winter holiday in week #7.

I think someone wrote that for people who travel a lot all through the year, being allowed to stay in one place doing nothing is perhaps a genuine holiday for them.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #09, 2016.
Written by Hanne Rask.

Come Sunday a new four-episode series will be shown on DR1.
Here QMII will guide and tell the story about four DRF-residences: Amalienborg, Fredensborg, Gråsten and Marselisborg.

That I look very much forward to!

QMII talks about the story of the places, how they are used by the family and also how they er furnished and decorated and in typical style QMII says about the Regent Couple's mansion at Amalienborg: "I'm probably a little bold in my way to furnish/decorate. I've probably always been a little bold with colors".

Several rooms that are otherwise out of bounds will be shown, including a grand guestroom: The King's Room, which you can see here: https://app.box.com/s/8o1y22st3jyk18z4wd3udru9bequogge
"I think the King's Room is a grand room".

But she also has an eye for the future: "In time a new generation will it their way. I imagine that Christian - my grandchild - will move in at Christian IX's Mansion" (Where the Regent Couple live now).

- You should be able to watch the series online outside DK, but it will of course be in Danish.
First episode will be shown Sunday at 20.00.

Not sure.

I think Amalienborg in general and Christian IX's Mansion and the representative mansion in particular. There is little point in QMII showing around in M&F's home - even though I'd like to know what she thinks.
