thank you. Looking forward to it.

It looks like there will not be a greeting at the airport. And as it has been for the past years, Frederik and Mary will have the majority of the events with the presidential couple.

Regarding the presentation of the Icelandic people's gift later today
http://kongehuset.dk/nyheder/overrae...ands-folkegave
retranslation of the total Icelandic sagas, of which the Queen wrote the preface for
"The preface to the work written by the Queen, who among other things wrote: "The Icelandic sagas is one of Scandinavia's most significant contribution to world literature. In Denmark they have played a particularly important role as a source of the ancient Norsemen history, and they have from a very early time formed a community in the North and linked the Nordic people together. "

I'm surprised by the (seemingly) spring-like attire on a January day. I would assume it would be much colder in Denmark in the winter.

i quickly tuned into the speeches of the state banquet.

all the royal ladies (the queen, mary and marie) seem to be wearing black (or very dark colours) - shame, as it looks like quite a sad occasion when it should be a joyous, historical one. at least benedikte wore one of her red frocks :)

the president of iceland seemed to have spoken in a scandinavian language (i don't know if it was icelandic or danish). usually the president in state visits speaks in his own language yet it sounded as if all the people attending could understand him (including the royal family). does the president speak danish and thus did his speech in danish or can icelandic be understood if you are a danish speaker?
