I read that too, just today... That sounds very sad, that the family won't be together.

Is this where we are going to post news or pictures if in case there are available ones of the DRF celebrating Christmas 2005?

Do they also attend a Christmas Service in any church in Denmark aside from spending their christmas at Marselisborg Palace?

The Danish RF are spending christmas at Marselisborg Palace, near Arhus. This will be lilleprins' 1st christmas. Only that we won't see Princess Alexandra, Prince Nikolai, and Prince Felix - they're spending it at their copenhagen home with Alex's family. :) :)

Thanks for the info. I am very much eager to look at the new photos of the royals celebrating Christmas at Marselisborg.

But I am also hoping that there will be pictures of the other royals like Princess Alex while celebrating it in her house in Copenhagen.

Acording to an article in BT today, the Royal Family will part from the norm this year and not spend Christmas at Marselisborg. Queen Margrethe and Price Henrik has insted decided to invite the entire family (almost) to spend christmas at Fredensborg.

The guestlist will include Joachim and his children, The Crown Prince couple and little Christian, the Queens sisters and their Family from Germany, Grece and Spain, aswell as the Reverend Peter Parkov. 34 In total.

Ohhh! Maybe Christian, Leonor, Irene, and Carlos can play together! I'm just imagining this! Think of all the children running around if the Danish, Spanish, Greek and Berleburg families get together. Not only the babies, but there's also Nikolai, Felix, Richard, Ingrid, Froilan, Victoria, Juan, Pablo, Miguel, Olympia, Konstantinos, Achileas, Odysseas, Arietta and Ana-Maria.

I cannot WAIT for a photoshot for this one

Oops, I saw Spain and figured Spanish Royal Family, not Carlos and Alexia and their children, but it would be so fun if they invited Juan Carlos and Sofia to join them, so that they could have an even bigger gathering. Didn't Sofia, Elena, Jaime, Cristina and Inaki go to Queen Anne-Marie's birthday?

i think the prospect of inviting the whole family sounds like good news for all of us.

just read the article and it only mentions Princess Alexia's family. i presume they're family from Spain the article is talking about. plus, i'm rather doubtful about the SRF going (maybe only 2 or three of them will come?). they do have their own traditions, right? not to mention that the way they commemorate Christmas would be different (between the Lutherans and Catholics, i mean).

but hey, Christmas is Christmas. everyone comes for a get-together no matter the reason.

Spanish part of the Danish royal family is indeed Alexia and family!

Leonor and family donīt belong to the Danish royals. But Alexia does! She is mentioned under "from Spain..." because she lives in Lanzarote.
So itīs no "mistake" from "BT". The Spanish royal family has nothing to do with the Danish royal family concerning christmas invitations. They didnīt even attend little Christianīs baptism....

So what is the meaning of ..from Greece.. then? King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie lives in London

I find this disturbing. It's like the Queen is gathering the entire family for her last christmas. Also, she stopped smoking publicly. I don't hope she's been diagnosed with cancer or anything.

I hope I'm wrong but I don't like the smell of this. I hope theý will have a wonderful christmas together

Maybe she does this gesture because she simply wants her grandchildren and nieces and nephews children to become closer? I hope this is the reason.

Perhaps the queen has taken over her mother's task of keeping the family close and make sure they meet, all of them, once in a while - just like they have taken up the gatherings at Gråsten during the summer.
Christmas is a wonderful occasion and hopefully they'll have a great time!

I neither hope nor think that Her Majesty has been diagnosed with cancer, and that this is the reason why she wants to gather the entire family. Mostly because the Danish monarchy has always (or at least ever since Margrethe seated herself on the throne) been very open when it comes to the health of the monarch.

Of course, given the serious nature of an illness such as lung cancer, it is conceivable that the Court decides to keep this one a secret. Nonetheless, I have a feeling that the news of Her Majesty never smoking in public again has to do with the fact that a law banning smoking in places of work in Denmark has recently been passed. Though the law is not in effect until April 1st of next year, I think, and hope, that Her Majesty is doing what she ought to do: Setting an example by not smoking at work. For one could argue that whenever The Queen is in public, she is at work.

That being said, I hope that the entire family will have a marvellous time at Fredensborg.

/Lasse

Open purse

Maybe she just opens her purse a bit because she f.i. didnīt celebrate her 65th birthday last year and this year she uses the fact that her sister Anne-Marie became 60 so she just feels like celebrating Anne-Marieī s birthday by inviting her and Alexia (who didnīt visit Graasten since the year 2000!) to Graasten and as a fine ending the whole family to Fredensborg for christmas.
