Some lovely interior views of the Palace in all the above. Thankyou for posting them. A lot of cordiality displayed, smiles a little joke or two. A smiling Queen. Quite lovely. And it doesn't look as if Harry has brought Old Faithful, his ancient blue suit, on this trip. I wonder whether they had a quick drink together, a cup of coffee?

Another positive article from TV2 about Harry: Dansk veteran om prins Harrys indsats: - Det er helt fantastisk - TV 2

Having served himself in Afghanistan, and especially having served in the capacity where he aboard an helicopter helped secure an evacuation zone has in particular earned the respect and almost endearment of (in this case) Danish veterans.
One of them is Maurice Lindegaard Manuel, who while serving in Afghanistan stepped on a mine and lost a leg beneath the knee.
Maurice Lindegaard is the man whose head Harry is seen kissing.

He explains: (About having being dedicated to helping veterans) "It's alpha and Omega (means everything) and totally fantastic that he use his position in society to create attention about us".

After having completed the first part of his treatment Maurice Lindegaard back in 2014 took part in the Invictus Games: "The Invictus Games came at a time whenI was about to rediscover myself and create a new identity. I went along and took part in both wheelchair-basket, wheelchair-rugby and calisthenics. It was an utterly fantastic experience. It was a way to prove to myself and those around me that I was on the way back".

Harry will today visit Svanemølle Barracks in Copenhagen together with Joachim, and here they will meet veterans as well as the head of the Danish branch of Invictus, Commodore Peter Tolderlund, who says: "He is something very special for us, because he has been to war on equal footing with other soldiers. Everybody are wild about him - myself included. He is really a great person".
He adds that the sports Harry has inspired people to take up has had a great significance: "We have several who have been able to stop using medication or who have recovered from an addiction. Through sports you can find a way back to life and back to the society through your physical or psychological scars".

That is something Maurice Lindegaard has been through himself. At the Invictus Games in 2014, it was Harry who presented the medals to Maurice Lindegaard: "He's got both feet firmly planted on the ground. He has been deployed himself and the gives him an understanding for what we have been through. There is a camaraderie between soldiers, which means that he is very accessible and I am in no doubt at all that we war-veterans are a core-issue that is very, very dear to his heart".

We can hope that Fred's twofer sale on red pants is still going strong Curryong so Old Faithful can get a well deserved break.

It is good to see Harry taking up an increasing number of royal duties. An official visit to a non-Commonwealth monarchy in Europe is a big step for him !

It really warms my heart to see the pictures and the videos from today's meeting with Queen Daisy and to read the articles that Muhler has posted for us.

This is the role of a royal prince at its best. This is a man that no matter who it is he's meeting, whether it be Queen Margrethe or a a disabled veteran, its not all about him but about who he is and he does his very best to not be the prime focus of pictures and videos but to be part of the pictures and videos. He is at home with Kings and Queens and top dignitaries as well as with the veteran in a wheelchair or a small child.

I had been really looking forward to seeing Harry and Queen Daisy in the same room and it doesn't disappoint. Although it was a very formal, diplomatic type meeting, by the body language alone, it let me know that these two people were very comfortable with each other. Of course, Daisy probably was goading information from Harry on how his grandmother was doing these days.

Perhaps "Old Faithful" blue suit was already spoken for by William for the day so Harry had to wear something else. Harry could do worse than copy Fred in his red pants. He could pick up some couture tips from Henrik. I have to laugh thinking of Harry wearing some of the stuff that Henrik wears.

The closest they came to a pet name for a royal was "The Queen Mum". 'Daisy' just makes her seem a little closer.
I doubt it was his first time meeting her or having occasion to think about the differences in the two queens' situations.

Daisy and Elizabeth are very close friends and she's believed to quietly visit her British cousin somewhat often. Instead of only offering Margarethe the usual sorts of orders given to foreign heads of state, Elizabeth made her a member of the Order of the Garter and gave her the highest rank of the Victorian Order, which recognizes personal service to the queen. Margarethe is also the Colonel in Chief of the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment (as was her father before her, although the regiment has changed names over the years and was something else in his day).

So Daisy is a well-known figure to the BRF.

However, Britain and Denmark are different places. Their monarchies are the living representatives of different histories. And so there will probably always, no matter the generation, be some difference in the two monarchies' relationship with the citizenry.

If you think you can handle the cuteness, here is a video of Harry, giving the spectators - and a baby - something extra: VIDEO: Sød baby charmerede prins Harry i København | BILLED-BLADET

Even Jyllands Posten, who usually don't cover royals that much, (unless it's about export) or local news in Copenhagen, has something about Harry: http://jyllands-posten.dk/internatio...paa-vesterbro/

So I see Harry will meet with Joachim. But will Mary and Frederik (and perhaps Marie) be present during some activity?

Mary has two other events tomorrow (today as well).
Frederik is in Thailand for the king's funeral ceremonies. Im thinking, Frederik would have been with Harry at tomorrow's Invictus games event (Frederik did attend the games in 2014), but has to attend the funeral.
