Summary of article in Billed Bladet #42, 2013.
Written by our culture reporter Ken Richter.

The Regent Couple has exhibited 150 works in the Aros art museum.

Arriving to Aarhus in the morning, by train in the DRF salon-car, the Regent Couple first met the press in the forenoon. Here QMII said: "We are of course taking a risk, becuase when you stick your head out of the bush the lion might bite it off". PH interjected: "We are ready for both praise and cristism. We are most pleased with praise and accept critism as a necessity".

It was the manager of Aros, Jens Erik Sørensen, who approached the Regent Couple and after a number of meetings the works were selected and brought from parks, living rooms and atticts from the various palaces.
QMII: "We are awed and proud that we were asked whether would would exhibit together. For me personally I'm double proud".

The inspirition is something QMII gets from impression from places she has been and PH constantly have a notebook and a pencil at hand.

Then it was back to the train, for a change of clothes before the official opening late in the afternoon, and this is where M&F joined them. And here, surprisingly Frederik gave a speech,praising his parents artistic gifts. I won't translate the speech, instead I will pick out a few quotes which say something about Frederik or his interaction with his parents.

"As a Dane I'm proud that we ave a Regent Couple who have such different keys to play. As a son I'm even more proud to have a couple of creative and not least courageous parents who dare put something on the line....

It's hardly a secret that I grew up with art which was everywhere in my childhood home. Paintings and books, sculptures and music have through your great interest in art in all it's forms been a significant part of my upbringing. But it's no secret either that I had to become an adult before I genuinely understoof the value of art and the pleasure it can give you as a person...

I have childhood memories of you, papa, from your studio in the voliere behind Christian VII's Mansion, where you were deeply occupied conjuring your small and big figures...

And you mor (= mother), I recall how you with your early drawings of among other things Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, managed to live yourself completely into the world of adventure and in that way we understood to viasualise the fairy tales, so that their images for ever burned themselves into the mind of your two boys...

Together you have both translated, illustrated and designed in a common passion for what's creative.
An impressive developement for which I have a lot of respect and which makes a son proud of his parents".

- The word on the street as I have picked it up, suggests that the exhibition has been very well recieved.

As a follow up on the exhibition.

TV2 says it is very well on the way to become the most successful exhibition in the history of the museum.
And as it is Aros has a very good record when it comes to having high numbers of visitors - simply because the exhibitions often also appeals to people who wouldn't otherwise dream of entering an art museum.

Of course the cultural snobs frown. Because art that appeals to the uneducated and unwashed masses surely cannot be of high quality.

Thank you Muhler for sharing the Crown Prince's words regarding his parents and for telling us about the success of this exhibit, that I would dearly love to see! I would not worry too much about the 'cultural snobs' because these people often are the ones who are never invited to those events, particularly royal ones, that they would secretly give their eyeteeth to attend! Bravo to Queen Margrethe and her consort

Thanks, love to see a bit of glamour and style on a drab autumn's day

Isn't Mary's blue skirt one she's also used back in 2005 or something?

I guess Margrethe and Henrik already were at Fredensborg Palace and therefore not arrived by car.

I found a few articles and photos of the dinner at Fredensborg on the 5th:

Menu du dîner à Fredensborg | Noblesse & Royautés

One ~ Two ~ Three ~ Four ~ Five

Arrivée de Frederik, Mary et Joachim de Danemark au dîner à Fredensborg | Noblesse & Royautés

Dîner à Fredensborg | Noblesse & Royautés

And here's a little story from one of the editors of Noblesse & Royuates - they were invited to the dinner:

Quote:
Press convened at 17:30:
The nice young student of the Royal House request to check cards Press.
Everyone runs and shows his card.
I show feverishly printed email confirming my accreditation from the Communications Service of the Palace.
Charming smiling young woman, I dare not look at the eyes of others sacarstique photographers.

18h30: Arrival of the first guests, including 26 members of the royal court, as indicated on the guest list provided to the press.

6:50 p.m.: one sees a car from the royal court.
Surprise, it does not stop before the red carpet ahead but at the foot of stairs.
Juse time to see Prince Joachim who, not having her pretty princess with him not to go through the photo box.
Fortunately he has around the car, allowing pros to have one or two successful pictures of him (not mine, I'm not pro).
No ultra-nice of him, we had hanging around almost one hour in the cold.

19h: arrival of the heir couple. The couple pose only, and not really on my side too. Nothing touches me, I'm cold to the feet.

19h at 19h50: Press waiting dinner heated in a wing of the castle.
Indeed, only Scanpix agencies and Polfoto are allowed take photos of the concert in the chapel.
I talk to the girl NR communication service and our love for the royal family of Denmark. She asks me if interest in Princess Mary grew House nearby the french.

7:50 p.m.: We wait a few minutes near the Kupelsalen before entering it (the floor below the balcony).
We see a dachshund frolicking around us, the maid of honor to Queen run with her heels, her pretty dress and pearl necklace 2 or 3 rows.
Assisted by a bodyguard, she grabs the dachshund and locked in a room. She left as if nothing had happened after we had offered his best smile.
I was stuck between two Malabar, I could not capture this funny scene.

20H: We go to the balcony.
Arrival of the guests in the room hubbub.
I note that a lady wears importable necklace with a thousand diamonds (fake) that I bought this summer and joined in my dresser all other importable necklaces Danish brands that make me vibrate.

Arrival of the royal couple, princes and Princess Mary.
They go fast to their table. The photo session lasts only a few seconds.
I can not locate the table Mary, nor that of Frederik or Joachim.
We are shown the exit. The photographer Billed there for short time to meet the Queen of the table. I like him, I have so few pictures, and it will be the most successful in the end.

Today, there has been a big government reshuffle here in Denmark. Under extensive media coverage one political party has left the government. So today a new government was presented in front of Amalienborg Palace. Inside at Amalienborg welcomed both Queen Margrethe and CP Frederik the new ministers welcome and said 'goodbye and thanks for all' to the former ministers. It's worth noting that Frederik is always attend these events. He arrived in Krone 8 about 10am.

and, as a Canadian, I am pleased to see one of the ministers wearing a beautiful sealskin jacket! Thanks to google translate, I understand that minister Norby is showing her support for the seal hunt, that WWF has declared sustainable. I do hope that the many activists who have complained about Canada's seal hunt will back off their anti seal hunt campaign, as I so want our Grand Banks fish back! (overfishing and seals are the culprits!)
