The answer to both questions from M. Payton and LibrarianDaisy is: Yes, she does.

I read about it in BT the other day - of course I can't find the article right now.

Thanks Muhler - I was sure she'd made one for each (and I knew you'd know the answer for certain )

December 7 "Lovely is the sky blue". In the Blue Dining Room at Marselisborg Castle, H.M. The queen made Christmas decorations, which encircle the image "Faroese Birds", which was a gift to the Queen of the Faroe Islands Legislative and Local Government in connection with the Government Anniversary in 2012.

I've always loved that picture and I so want a close up view of those decorations (and is it just me, or is anyone else longing to straighten two of those candles )

The video showing the decorating of the Christmas tree is spectacular. I like how everyone is involved in the decorating. One decoration was a star with a photo of a Prince. Who was the boy: Prince Christian or Prince Vincent?

Thank you Muhler for the answer, she is an amazing woman for doing that type of needlework takes lots of time as I know, and being an artist, a mother, a wife and queen on top of it.......she is a very strong role model to follow for many women.

Most people have a fire-extinguisher, a carpet, a bucket of water or a spray with water and a couple of drops of detergent close by, just in case.
Candles provides an atmosphere you cannot recreate with electric lights IMO.

Thank you for the tidbit of information Muhler. Good to hear that there are many safety precautions when it comes to candles on trees. I do agree with you that candles provide a different sort of atmosphere - I can imagine that they feel a lot more magical and homely.

This is very cute. And how nice that the Queen has done them for her grandchildren. A great tradition that I'm sure they will cherish. Judging from the picture their seems to be calendars on both sides of Isabella's, Christian's and one of the twins I'm guessing

Yes, it's really cute that Margrethe is doing this for her grandchildren. It's something they can keep and look back on. What a lovely idea.

Thanks Eya.

I guess this is a reference to the DRF Christmas Eve dinner. They always have an English cake. Presumably a tradition introduced either by Queen Ingrid or QMII's English nanny.

"Now on Lucia's Day, greet our friendship, Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia"
H.M. The queen is here embroidered Santa Lucia. The Lucia tradition comes from Sweden, and the Queen was with his sisters, H.K.H. Princess Benedikte and H.M. Queen Anne-Marie, among the first Danes who were Lucia . It was in 1946 at the Swedish Embassy in Copenhagen.

Very lovely. Some great work by the Queen.
And seeing that the 4 calendars are hanged side by side they must take up all the wall
