Christmas is near and that means books about the DRF are being published.
This time a photobook by Henrik Hildebrandt, who for 35 years photographed the DRF at various events.
Some of these hitherto unpublished photos have been compiled in a book.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/billeder-og...efamilien-foer

Let's go to the actual photos:
Here a photo of PH at a movie premiere from 1982.
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22495975-1.jpg

QMII at the same premiere:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22495978-2.jpg

And Frederik and Joachim also at the premiere:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22496013-7.jpg

The photographer has tried to take pictures of the DRF in, or in poses that resemble day to day situations.
He says: "If I am to pick my favorite members of the DRF, it must be Marie and Mary. They glow and are good at being relaxed. That results in good pictures."

Mary is here pregnant with Christian:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22495991-3.jpg
"I don't know why I'm so crazy about this photo. Her hair has been laid up. I don't know if that's it. She looks very relaxed and happy. Natural."

Joachim and a shy Athena on her first day at school:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22496028-8.jpg
The photographer at some point met Joachim at a festival and asked for a photo, and a somewhat skeptical Joachim needed a little instruction in how to pose so that he would look natural.
But he was eventually invited inside their private home.
"He's surely/no doubt a real fine and nice guy, when you get to know him privately."

Here Christian is telling Bella how to behave!
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22496006-5.jpg
"They are quite ordinary people. It was at the chirstening of the twins and then Christian step in as the older brother, just as you would see in many other families."

As you know QMII and PH never worked out how to walk arm in arm.
Here at Isabella's christening:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22496004-4.jpg

Frederik with schoolchildren in 2011:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...22496010-6.jpg

The book is called: Kongehuset i det nye artusinde. = The DRF in the new millennium. By Henrik Hildebrandt.
In case you are interested.
You can find it here: https://www.saxo.com/dk/kongehuset-i..._9788771712988
234 pager, hardcover. The price is reasonable for such a book and the price is like to drop further in january.

BB has compiled a delightful gallery of QMII and her father Frederik IX.
As you know she was very much "daddy's girl."
But they have made a mistake in one of the photos... You should easily be able to spot it.

I found these delightful photos of PH visiting the small island of Tunø.
PH used to visit the island privately each summer during the annual Jazz Festival there.
That was very much appreciated by the locals and he was able to mingle freely with everyone he met, as was his fashion.
But as you can tell not every summer is sunny here in DK...

In 1863, the first representative of the House of Glücksborg became King, and the present Royal Family are direct descendants of this Royal House.

Yes actually, because Helena of Denmark, a Danish princess who was a direct descendant of Gorm the old, married William of Winchester, the son of Henry the Lion, and she became an ancestress to the house of Brandenburg, and an agnatical ancestor to George I of Great Britain, ana ancestor to the Danish line through Christian IX and Queen Victoria

I thought you might enjoy this photo from 2012 of PH in one of his schlager-singer outfits:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...9/5138349-.jpg

So far his throne is still vacant - fashion-wise.

Today is the fourth of July. A date of particular significance to Americans.

The day is of course also celebrated outside USA. But the only place outside USA where the day have been celebrated each year for more than a hundred years, except for an - ahem - intermission from 1942-44, is in Denmark.

In Rebild Hills in North Jutland to be exact. Since 1912.
The celebration is organized by the Rebild Society and there is a considerable attendance by Danish-Americans and Americans of Danish descend.
Apart from various entertainment, there are speeched by prominent Danish-Americans, the US ambassador and often senior US politicians. Richard Nixon, when he was vice-President was there, as well as Ronald Reagan, while he was still governor of California.
And some years QMII gives the main speech.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebild_Festival

Here are some photos of the celebrations, the weather is not always this sunny though - like today...

And QMII, she does have a history of tripping at Rebild. The terrain is not the easiest.

The area is very scenic.

M&F drive close by Rebild Hills on the way to and from Trend, so I'm sure they have been there several times.

And more ominous. Deeper in the forests there is REGAN West. The bunker where Frederik was to be taken should a nuclear war have been imminent.
It is now a Cold War museum.
But there is another bunker further south...

The reason Christain I got on the throne was because of his mother who could claim descent from Valdemar I and Valdemar II many times. Her husban also did but not as much

I agree with you gerry, yes he is missed.
But you will have to educate me as to what a soi - disant means. Please.

It is pouring down today here in DK, so BB has compiled a gallery of mainly DRF members in the rain: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...ige-i-regnvejr

No one, as in no one at all, comes close to QMII though!
Even though PH, albeit accidentally, comes close...

I found this super resolution photo of QMII on the job, from 2013 I think:
Spektrum Arkitekter | H.M. Dronningen besøgte Røsnæs Rundt[auto_group1]/0/

Click on the photo, go full screen.
