I think in the past thread on General News about the Danish Royal Family, Muhler posted about a royal portrait of the Queen and her family being done,

" a large painting by Thomas Kluge will be unveiled soon. It depicts all members of the DRF with Christian in the centre. The other older children, including Felix and Nikolai, will line up beside Christian and the small children will appear in the back with their parents.
There is a picture in the article of the part of the picture with Christian. He is sitting on a chair with Prince Henrik's hand resting on the chair, so presumably the Regent Couple will stand behind Christian.
A book about the painting is about to be published as well.

The painting measuring 2.10 X 2.10 meters will eventually hang at Fredensborg Palace.

- Thomas Kluge's style is almost photographic and when looking at the cropped image in the article of Christian it looks very promising indeed!

The painting was commisioned at QMII's 70'th birthday by an anonymous donor, not even the artist know who paid for the painting.
It has been slightly delayed because Thomas Kluge in particular wanted the royal children included in the painting. - But then the twins came, to be followed by Athene, and they all had to be old enough to be able to pose, so....
The idea to the painting is actually Thomas Kluge. At a ball at the court in 2009, he said that he would like to paint the entire DRF and that's how it all started. "

I found a little bit more information (apparently a book will be published as well)...
Artist Thomas Kluge is working on a present version of Lauritz Tuxen’s famous group portrait of the Glücksborgs, this time portraying the family of QMII. On the website of the publisher you can check out the front page of the book as well as pictures of the Crown Prince couple selecting the photos used as model for the portrait.

I really love Tuxens painting of the extended family in the garden room at Fredensborg, I can identify nearly all them in that painting. If he models this painting on the same theme that would be great.

Lauritz Tuxen's painting is my favourite of all historic paintings, I too can identify them all and it's so beautifully painted - a real masterpiece. Can't wait to the the new painting. Is it known when it will be revealed?

Thank you for reposting the information here

The author of the new book to be published on the new group portrait as well as the last 150 years of portraits of the Glücksborgs, Thyge Christian Fønss, was kind enough to answer me at the GREMB:

I'm excited to see this portrait! Interesting that it will focus on Christian. Pointing to the future of the monarchy.

Thanks for the pictures, dbarn67

I had the feeling that M+F and their foursome spent The Easter with The Regent Couple and I guess we will hear more about that in this week's BB. I pretty sure M+F and children spent some days in Trend too, they seem happy for the hunting lodge.

More pics... Mary looks really lovely and the Little Bella cute and so darn cool with her hat

thanks Roskilde

It looks like Mary and Frederik arrived with the kids in a van, and the Queen and Henrik in another vehicle, but then it looks like Mary and the Queen left together?

did Frederik and Henrik sneak out early with Christian and Isabella?

Yes I think I remember something about that Frederik and Henrik always leave the church together after the first part of the Easter service while Mary always stays together with Margrethe for the rest of the service. And Christian and Bella apparently prefer their dad's and grandfather's way of doing things

is it common or usual practice for people to leave church early? I'm not a big church goer not do I live in Denmark but I've never known people to leave early.

I think you are right, thanks
I know for Easter service its extra long so maybe there is some kind of interval when people can leave

Yes, judging by the pictures it seems that other people also leave the church at the same time as Henrik, Frederik and C & I.

It's also hard for young children (and Henrik, perhaps ) to stay entertained for such a long time, so I perfectly understand why they left (and I think it's a great thing that the church makes you able to leave if the service really is that long).

I'm hardly the most active churchgoer myself, however going to the alter is optional and many leave at that time. - rather than sit and wait for perhaps 200 people each getting their oblate and wine.
I believe that is in line with the teaching of the Luheran church where the connection between you and God is personal and doesn't necessarily require a priest.
Perhaps FasterB can elaborate some more?

QMII is as you know a very devout Christian and I can imagine a service (especially at Easter) simply wouldn't feel right without the blood and flesh of Christ.
Frederik is also religious but in my impression on a much more private level. Not sure Prince Henrik is that religious and as for Mary that's difficult to say...

Henrik always looks bored in Church. Always starring at the ceiling or looking around etc, not really paying too much attention to the actual service, but he may indeed be religious in a more personal way.

I hope we can get bigger or HQ pictures, because I would love to see Isabella and her beautiful outfit more closely!
