I look forward to this visit. It would be nice to see Queen and Heir, mother and son.

Yes, it is.
So it's not a joke when they close the bridge.

The train accident is a terrible thing to happen with lives lost and others injured. We had very good coverage on our news last night. Very tragic.

Yes, a very sad tragedy.
The number of killed are now eight. Two more were found on the train after it had been towed off the bridge.
The engineer was literally 20 cm from being cut in half by the trailer loaded on the freight train. That for whatever reason had shifted.

King Carl Gustav has send a telegram to QMII, as is custom when a head of state express condolences to another country.
The Swedish PM, Stefan Löfven, sent a corresponding telegram to the Danish government.

The message from the King reads:
"The Queen and I hereby express our deepest sympathy in connection with the train crash on Great Belt bridge.
Our thoughts are with the injured and with the families of the deceased, friends and with the Danish people.
Carl Gustaf R.
The Royal Palace, Stockholm 2nd January 2019."

It is truly a sad way to start the new year and sadder still that the only thing we can offer is our thoughts and prayers for the families of the dead and injured an a hope that the injured recover quickly.

What a wonderful way QM has with words. Her message of sympathy is beautifully expressed with a depth of feeling. I hope the rest of the year brings no more great sorrow to Denmark.

I wonder if Fredrik is having a slight "there but for the grace of god go I" moment.

Such a tragic accident. My thoughts and prayers to the victims' families.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #1, 2019.
Written by Trine Larsen, who spend her New Years Eve in central Copenhagen.

At 20.00 sharp QMII arrived at the home of her friends Joen Bille and Bente Scavenius. They live literally around the corner from Amalienborg.
Prior to QMII arriving the other guests arrived and they were basically a list of personal friends of QMII.
Bent Fabricius-Bjerre with his wife, Camilla. (Certainly Mary is very fond of Bent Fabricius-Bjerre.)
Susanne Heering, who like QMII is a relative new widow.
Jesper Bruun Rasmussen and his wife Birthe. (It was from his auction house that Mary bought the tiara, she wore at the New Year Court.)
Marianne Tholstrup.
Dorthe Foss, who is also a widow.
Birgitta and Kjeld Hillingsø. (Their daughter, the actress Ellen Hillingsø, is a close friend of M&F.)
Baron Frederik Iuel Brockdorff and his wife Baroness Anne Rosenørn-Lehn.

The theme for the party was red and black. Inspired by the novel Le Rouge et le Noir, by Stendal.

The last time the party was held here, the gate locked up and couldn't be opened, leaving the Regent Couple in a bit of a limbo.
But this year, some of the other guests held the gate open, just in case, when QMII arrived.

There is no mentioning in BB as to what J&M and M&F did or were on New Years Eve.

But there is plenty to look at in this weeks issue, so feast your eyes on this:

Thank you, HereditaryPrincess and congratulations on your first 9.000 posts.

Thanks Muhler! I love the idea of these themed parties, and I'm sure Margrethe does too. She's more than cultured enough to come up with great ideas.

Yes; I can imagine that these parties are right up Margrethe's street!

Thanks, Iceflower.

Yes, there was a small deficit last year. Mainly due to PH's funeral and Frederik turning 50. The deficit has been reduced a bit by laying off members of Ph's staff.
However, the equity has as such been reduced a little.

But then there are no major events in sight for some years. Except for QMII turning 80 and Mary turning 50, but that's not to be compared to Frederik's B-day. Not in an official/state context.

What lovely horses, and beautiful photos! I wonder if they have spa days, and get massages?

There actually is equine massage, so that may not be such a far-fetched idea.

The head of the PR for the DRF, Lene Balleby, has talked about the DRF members using Instagram. (With huge success BTW!)

https://www.bt.dk/royale/frederik-og...-noget-der-kan
"We are developing the digital platforms of the DRF all the time and the royal family themselves are a large part of that process.
We have for the past year seen updates images and videos from the royals themselves on the social medias. From the take over of the Crown Prince and question session at the Royal Run to the Crown Princess' own photo-reports from visits in developing countries and latest from the Women Deliver conference in Canada.
Apart from that the CP-family and Prince Joachim and Princess Marie also share day to day moments with own photos and texts.
The DRF wish to be where the Danes are. That's why it's completely natural that the royal family on special occasions communicate directly on the various platforms."


At present the DRF has 321.000 followers on Instagram and 246.000 on Facebook.

- There is also a communications expert mentioned in the article, but since I believe we are all experts in social medias and your opinion is just as good as his, I have omitted quoting his otherwise positive review.
