Queen Margrethe has a new dog!

"H.M. The queen's new dog, Nelly, is fed up with the two other dogs of the Regent couple, from left Helike and Tillia, at Marselisborg Castle on Christmas days."

Being a huge doggie lover that is so cute, what a rambunctious house with 3 dogs running to and fro........the sounds of yapping dogs always makes my heart dance. And the new one is so cute, a darker brown then the other two. They need bows on them this time of year.......pretty red bows with tiny bells to hear them coming...........then watch out

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #45, 2018.
Written by Trine Larsen.

This will be the first Christmas without PH.
QMII has recently said how she looks forward to Christmas this year, at Marselisborg, where the whole family will be gathered. Also Nikolai and Felix, who spend Christmas with their father every alternate year.
Christmas is of course about traditions, and the DRF Christmas will be celebrated the way it has always been celebrated as long as QMII can remember.

It's very much a back to basic Christmas, while Christmas at ordinary Danes is now very different.
In the DRF, it's rice-porridge first, with one almond. - For ordinary Danes it's risalamande as dessert, with one almond. Some start out with soup. But that seems to be fading out, people simply can't eat that much!
The main course is goose. - For ordinary Danes it's Duck or roast pork and a kind of sausages.
The dessert is an English plum cake. - For ordinary Danes, it's the before mentioned risalamande. With the almond!
An almond is put into the bowl, all are then served and the one who happens to have the almond win a prize. The trick is of course to pretend you don't have the almond until everyone has eaten. Or to pretend that you pretend you don't have the almond. In all modesty that's my specialty. To the eternal annoyance of the children, especially a certain daughter of my acquaintance who don't like to loose.

When everyone has eaten, the DRF sit in front of the Christmas and sing a handful of psalms. originally the Christmas tree was purely for decoration. - Ordinary Danes waddle around the Christmas tree hand in hand singing... which some people perhaps shouldn't...

So I guess it's going to be very lively at Marselisborg this year!
With I don't know how many dogs and even more children and not least four uncles/dads/half brothers playing... I mean checking the toys.

There is one more tradition though. When the family returns from the Christmas service at Aarhus Cathedral QMII will always stop to wish the guardsmen on duty a merry Christmas. And I imagine those who happens to drive with her (that has sometimes been Mary) will join her in the well-wishes.
That is something the guardmen look very much forward to, which is why there are always plenty of volunteers for guard duty on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.
