Our Marie's father has now retired.

Her mother still runs a restaurant or similar establishment.

And I believe her stepfather is working.

As I so often write summaries and translations from Billed Bladet, I find it appropriate to post this here as an illustration on how the magazine view it's connection with the DRF.

Translation of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #31, 2012.
Where a Birgitte Eriksen asks:
Do all members of the DRF get BB when it's published? Does the DRF approve the articles in the magazine? How is the relationship between the magazine and the DRF?

Jon Bloch Skipper replies:
The DRF recieve Billed Bladet every week (*) and we know that by far most members of the royal family reads the magazine. That also applies to Princess Benedikte and her family in Berleburg.
Billed Bladet certainly has no special status at the court, in regards to other medieas with whom we work on equal footing.
But we have a good and trusting relationship with the DRF, with a fine and mutual respect for eachothers occupations and tasks.
On a day to day basis the DRF does not get articles or quotes for approvement, but is there a special occasion, a major interview or a special deal, where a reading of the text is the premise and wished for, before we print, we always work that out in good order. It is that, that signifies our relationship with eachother.

(*) That is hardly surprising. I would imagine that the DRF-administration as well as the various courts within the DRF, i.e, QMII, Frederik and Joachim, recieve a wide assortment of weekly magazines and daily newspapers. And in that respect it's no different from say a ministry.

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #36, 2012.
Where a Bodil Christensen asks when PET began to protect the DRF.

Jon Bloch Skipper explains that it started in the 80's, and the first to be issued permanent bodyguards where Frederik and Joachim. (For fear of kidnap attempts).
Soon after the Regent Couple also got bodyguards and today most members of the DRF have permanent bodyguards from PET. (And in really dangerous areas FET agents).

I have a question referring to the royal anthem of Denmark. The melody of it is in my ears similar to another historic royal song. Do any other members thinking the same as I? And what is the other royal song?

Here is the royal anthem:

I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

Could it be "Het Wilhelmus"?

Queen Margrethe II and Family in Portrait


I'm new to this forum, so excuse any faux pas.

I'm after a picture of HM The Queen Margrethe II of Denmark that I have in a booklet published by the Royal Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Although rather old, it is published in 1997 and was sent to me by the Danish Embassy to the United Kingdom upon enquiries.

I am especially after an internet-uploaded version of the Royal Family portrait which, I gather, is c. 1987-88, but which features in the booklet.

In in, The Queen is seated and, in backdrop, CP Frederik, Prince Henrik, and Prince Joachim stand behind her. All are in ceremonial dress.

I would like to present this is as birthday present, so all help will be gladly welcomed. :P

They have such photos made very often, so it's difficult to even know what to look for.

My suggestion is that you write the court and ask for details about the picture, i.e. photographer and who has copyrights. Then contact the photographer or make a search based on these details. - If you are very lucky the court may even send you a copy.

Cars and transportation for the Danish Royal Family.

Inspired by a Q&A in BB, I thought I'd open this thread about the means of transport used by the DRF.
This list is not complete but I hope others will join in and add more vehicles of all sorts.

The official cars used by the DRF are popularly known as "crown-cars" because of a crown on the numberplates:

The grandest car is known as "Big crown". It's Rolls Royce Silver-Wraith:

The next in line is Krone 1. A Diamler Limousine from 1992:

Followed by Krone 2. A Diamler Limousine from 1986:

Krone 3 is a Buick Centurion convertible, used by Prince Henrik as a favorite summer-car.

Krone 5, a Diamler Limousine from 1979.

Krone 121, a Bentley Mulsanne, is used by QMII on a daily basis:

Krone 101, an Audi A4, is used by Prince Henrik:

Krone 462, a Bentley, was used by Frederik IX and is now on museum.

Krone 7, Volvo S80
and Krone 8, Audi A8 - are used by M&F as their official cars.

Apart from that there are:
Krone 9 &10, which are both Audi A8.

Krone 11, Volvo S80.

Krone 12, Volvo S80 V8.

Krone 15, Mercedes Viano - minibus.

Krone 16, VW Multivan - minibus.

Krone 17, VW Caravelle - minibus.

Krone 18. VW Polo Blue Motion, - a utillity car.

Krone 34, Crafter 34, a truck.

Krone 35, Volvo - for transporting horses.

Then there are the private cars used by the DRF, but that I'll leave to someone else.

Another popular mode of transportation for the DRF, is the Nihola bike:
Used by both M&F but also Joachim and our Marie at both Amalienborg and Schackenborg.

Sometimes they, mostly the Regent Couple, use the royal salon-car. Which is simply attached to a regular train. From outside:

The DRF does not have a specific plane, but for shorter flights in Greenland and in Europe they fly onboard an air force Challenger:

And for flights inside DK, they often hitch a ride onboard one of the large EH101 helicopters:

It has happened that M&F have hitced a ride on a fast Fennec helicopter:

In Greenland and the Faroe Islands the reliable old Lynx are used:

Why are so many Danish Kings named Frederick or Christian?

I may have this in the wrong thread, but it sort of falls under the historical umbrella. Why are the kings of Denmark almost always named Frederick or Christian? Were they names that were so popular they had to be repeated or is there some Danish tradition that requires it?

I think it's just a tradition. With two exceptions every Danish monarch since the first Oldenburg monarch has either been a Christian or a Frederick, alternating between the two.

The two exceptions are John/Hans (who reigned in between Christian I and Christian II, taking the place of a Frederick), and the current Margrethe, who's reigning in between her father, Frederick IX, and her son (who will likely be Frederick X).

There's a good deal of research about preference for sound sequences within cultures (which may be both hereditary and a set of cultural switches).

It's also likely that some groups are more traditional than others. Royal lines in general tend to turn up some of the same names; perhaps Denmark is especially fond of a smaller set (for various reasons, including some preferences for sound sequences).

Christian, of course, is sort of heavy-laden with meaning as well.

What happen to my post from earlier? I asked if there was a Good Website about the history of The Danish Monarch/Royal Family with List of monarchs, Family tree, Bios, etc. where I could learn more about the Danish and the history of it Royal Family more in depth. I just log on and now it Gone.

I didn't think there was anything wrong with the question and I couldn't find the question anywhere else.

Anyway is there a website beside the official Danish Monarchy Website where I could learn more about the Danish Royal Family and the Danish Monarchy?
Long Live the Queen!! The Real Queen of Hearts!
