I came across this gallery from the State Archives of the opening of the Parliament in 2011: Folketingets åbning 2011 - a set on Flickr

There is nothing new as such, but it provides a different angle as we usually see pics of the DRF from the top of the stairs or to the sides. This time we get an overview of the courtyard from the opposite side.

A report from BT: http://www.bt.dk/nyheder/kunne-ikke-...plaget-af-gigt
For the first time ever QMII had to take the lift up to the royal seats. The rest walked the stairs.

I'm going home on maternity leave, so I took the time to actually see the entire opening. A first for everything, I guess

I noticed that the Queen had to take the elevator instead of the stairs.

That Mary and Marie, while waiting for Margrethe and Henrik, let their husbands and Benedikte take care of themselves and instead had a looong happily chat.

That Frederik and Mary sent each other smiles and winks during the speech and also got them several happily chats underway - You know, it's a loooong speech.

That none of the royals fell asleep Instead I counted at least three politicians who took them a little nap.

That they didn't kissed each other goodbye after the opening, so they will probably have a lunch together.

A video from B.T. of Frederik and Mary arriving

Dronning Margrethe og Prins Henrik til Folketingets åbning - Local Eyes

A number of clips of the arrival from Localeyes.
First clip is of the Regent Couple arriving.

Let's go through the protocol again, shall we.
The uniformed gentleman with the medals is the senior constable of the Parliament and he is opening the doors for some of the DRF members.

Once out of the car QMII greets the Chairman of the Parliament (the highest rank anyone outside the DRF can hold), who presents Her Majesty with flowers. The second chairman presents Mary with flowers and the third chairman presents our Marie with flowers and so on.
The DRF wait on the repos, because as invited and guests of honour they must naturally be escorted inside the Parliament. Again the Chairman escorts QMII, the second chairman escorts PH and so on.

Because this is a festive occasion the attire is not sombre.

The DRF watch the opening speech from the gallery, partly because they are guests but also to symbolize the division between the Monarch and the Parliament.



Thanks, Roskilde.

I hope you take a full maternity leave, we rely on you to supply us with pics.

Anyway, is that guy checking out Mary's behind?

I think that's Joachim and he's paying attention walking down the stairs, IMO.

I agree, Frederik's haircut serves him good

Mary, Benedikte and QMII all looked superb and Marie looked good too, but this was far from my all-time favourite look on her. So horrible with QMII's back, my own grandmother has osteoarthritis too and it's a horrible disorder.

I actually just casually bumped into our Minister for the Environment, Ida Auken, when shopping in the local mall today after the opening of the parliament. One of the few people in this government (*cough*) who actually does her job in accordance to the original values of her party.

What is wrong w/HM? The last couple of months there have instances of her sitting at events she normally would have stood for or taking an elevator instead of the stairs? Something is not right and is also worrying to see too.

I believe it's been said that she has severe back pains, which would account for the sitting and elevator.
