thank you Muhler
Roskilde had posted the poll in another thread, under general news for the DRF, Maybe we can join them together.

I think both Frederik and Joachim can be quite proud of their wives. Adapting to a new country and culture and taking on their new roles in the royal family

they obviously have different roles and pressures on them, but both have done well. And of course, young beautiful women will always bring more attention then boring suits (no matter how handsome Frederik is)

But hopefully the press and the DRF PR highlight Frederik and Joachim's events more. They are certainly both very experience and knowledgeable, plus Frederik always adds his natural charm and down to earth approach.
Joachim adds his colorful fashion statements

I believe that my question fits here. There was an official visit by the then Kings of Greece (Konstantino -Anna Maria) in Denmark? These how about 2-2.5 years were in Greece after their marriage?

BT has written a number of articles lately based on a book by Søren Jakobsen, a former Ekstra Bladet journalist.
The book and a former similar book is about the most wealthy families in DK, families that are very discreet, do not belong to the jetset and who shun attention.
A number of these families, including the Lego-family, are also close to the DRF, but discreet.

And typical of wealthy and as such influential families they are also close to the royals, who in return bestow titles on members of these families. Like the title of chamberlain, which ranks above supreme court judge.

I haven't got time to go in details about this.
But it has come up before that the DRF are close to, and some would claim too close, to these very rich families.
It's no big issue IMO because the royals have always been close to the rich and powerful in any country at any time. Beforehand that was members of the nobility and as long as it doesn't influence the DRF it's no big deal.
And of course there are cases of "I rub your back, you rub mine".

Also in regards to the sale of Schackenborg, where all sides got a very good deal. - Joachim is now very wealthy and those who bought into Schackenborg got a good (tax deductible) price and the gratitude of the DRF.

Highness?

Hi,

Does anyone know the formal reason the grandchildren fo Queen Margrethe from her second son are highness instead of royal highness? Is this their way of maintaining the dignity of a royal prince and princess, while making the working royal family smaller?

AFAIK there has never been an official explanation from QMII, but you pretty much nailed it.
Felix, Nikolai, Henrik and Athena are de facto one generation away from being commoners. I.e. they shall not expect their children to have a royal title.
The same thing will most likely be the case for Isabella, Vincent and Josephine's grandchildren.

A qualified guess from me would be that there will be a lot of Count/esses of Montepezat around over the next generation or two.

The concept of a Rigsforstander goes back to at least the 1100's.

The word "forstander" means a headmaster or rather leader of a specific institution. Like a school, lunacy asylum, leprosy hospital, prison, house for poor and so on.
So when you add "rigs" to "forstander" you get headmaster/manager of the realm.
The first time the title of Rigsforstander is mentioned officially, with special flag and all, is in 1504.
