Thanks for the great pictures Alexandria. I must say I'm surprised to see deer antlers. Somewhere I had the idea that was a specialty of the Wild West, but I must be wrong.

:flower: Thank you, Alexandria, for those beautiful pictures. I have been a few times in front of the palace and always wondered how it would be inside. :flower:
I have visited Christiansborg Palace tree or four times and it is a very beautiful place, too.

I like the art, the paintings, and the bold use of yellow on the walls ... but where is the comfort? I would adopt this room for my own if it had a cushy chair in it with a high walled back.

I have been looking through this thread, and I have some questions:

Marselisborg is privatly owned by the Queen, is it her summer residence?

Marselisborg, Gråsten and the yacht Dannebrog are all among the summer residences of the Queen. I believe she will also spend easter at Marselisborg (which is why there wasn't a balcony scene in Copenhagen a couple of years back, as HM's birthday was during easter week.)

Sorry but I am still confused. Some articles say this castle was "given" to Margrethe & Henrik in 1967 by her father King Frederik, including the 32-acre park & outside swimming pool..............
does this mean that the Queen owns this palace outright (like they do the Chateau) or does Denmark own this Castle and they get the use of it ????

It seems large, how many guests/family members does it hold

Yes, Marselisborg Manor is the private property of the DRF/Monarch.
The manor was build by the municipality of Aarhus, in the early 1900's and presented to the DRF, to use as they please.

I understand that Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid rarely visited the manor and there were serious discussions in Aarhus about aquiring the manor back from the DRF, as the manor is located in one of the most attractive places in Aarhus. It could then be used for the benefit of the citizens of Aarhus instead.
However since QMII took over, the manor is visited regularly every year and these visites are appreciated by the citizens of Aarhus. Aarhus being the second largets city in DK.

It will be interesting to see how much M&F will use Marselisborg in the future.
They appear to very fond of Trend in Northen Jutland, and they are also very fond of Fredensborg. (Which will in all likelihood become their permanent summer residence, also after QMII is gone).
So until their children grow and get married, Marselisborg may again just be standing around empty most of the time. Who knows?
That's also the problem with Gråsten in Southern Jutland, which is basically only used for a few weeks during the summer.
Not to mention Cayz, which seems to be a popular retreat for the entire DRF.

Marselisborg may look big, but it really can't accomodate that many visitors. It's also old. I understand that the heating sysem and insulation is pretty oldfashioned and inefficient. - But it'll be a big investment to renovate and modernize the manor.

According to the website of the DRF, it was rebuilt during 1899-1902

Other than Joachims estate, do the Danish Royal family actually own any properties in Denmark? I am under the impression that all of the palaces we associate with the family are state properties at the disposal of the monarch.

There is the hunting lodge at Trend - Slot: Danmark. Trend jagthytte: Lundskovs slgtsdatabase for Konger og Fyrster - which is privately owned by the royal family. It was a present from the people in 1937 to the queen's parents.

I'm a bit confused by some of the comments i've read by other people not in this thread, do Mary and Fred have their own small house in the grounds? That seems to be what some people have suggested in other threads but I've not heard that before.

Because Marselisborg Manor is fairly small. In the sense that it has few, but big rooms. So when the entire DRF and adjutants, PET officers, drivers, additional staff not to mention a nanny or two are counted, there really aren't that many rooms to go between them.
So it's simply more practical to billet some of the family in one of the staff houses on the grounds of the manor. - With their entourage of nannies and PET officers.

Let's try and count them.
The Regent Couple = One or two bedrooms.
Joachim and our Marie = One bedroom.
Nikolai and Felix = One room.
Little Piaf and bette Henrik = One room.
A possible nanny = One room.
Mary and Frederik = One Bedroom.
Christian and Isabella = One room.
Vincent and Josephine = One room.
A probable nanny = One room.
Resting Pet officers = At least one room.
Staff = Several rooms.
Possible adjutant on duty = One room.

A platoon from the Royal Lifeguards = A house.

- So all rooms at or the near manor must be presumed to be in use.

Seeing Marselisborg & the Chateau are owned by the Queen & Henrik, can they not give it (when they die) to someone other than Fred & Mary. Like some of the grandchildren who may not have as much as the Heir........

Reading through the thread, I wondered whther the Queen and Prince Henrik might leave Marselisborg to Prince Joachim and family.
Frederik and Mary are unlikely to use it all that often in future, so it would be sensible thing to do.

I have to say I always feel that the Queen and Prince have almost too many houses to choose from. I wonder if it will go to Joachim or as Artemisia says thegrandchildren as I doubt F&M would be in dire need of another place. However QM may leave it to them to follow tradition, we can but guess.
