Goodness I am slow at catching up on things. Loved seeing these pics. Princess Benedikte is a favourite of mine, I have deep respect for her. She does a wonderful job supporting her sister and looking after her own causes. I love the fact she and Prince Richard & the other family members get out and about with the locals and help spread the yuletide cheer and greetings.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #19, 2011.
På arbejde for Danmark - On the job for Denmark
Written by Annelise Weimann.
https://picasaweb.google.com/billedb...rBreelteparken#

Princess Benedikte has again been busy lately. She is one of the hardest working members of the DRF. But being a secondary royal she doesn't get that much attention.

She usually spend one or two weeks in DK each month. In fact her staff, i.e. driver, cook and maid, have by then worked so many extra hours that they are off work until Princess Benedikte returns to DK. So she's a busy lady!

Lately she has been five days in Rwanda visiting projects for orphans. Upon returning home she inaugurated a number of new aditions to a care centre for elderly in Hørsholm. The same day she attended the celebrations in connection with Susanne Heering stepping down as chairman for the Association for Bulimia.

Princess Benedikte recieve about 1.000.000 DKK a year in apanage, for which she has to pay all expences.

- And this concludes this weeks coverage of the DRF in BB.

Thanks for the translation, it doesn't seem she is one of the hardest working royals in the family as she hardly gets any attention which is a pity IMO. Where does she spend when she is in Denmark?

She does live in Berleburg But she still has engagements in Denmark and so she is spending part of her time there. As she doesn't usually have engagements in Germany, there isn't much coverage of her, and it is hard to tell where she spends the majority of her time

We mainly know about Princess Nathalie. She's a show-jumper and breeder.


Yesterday, September 29, Princess Benedikte received children from Greenland and the Gentofte
municipality at Christian VIII's Palace in Amalienborg.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #41, 2011.
Hjertevarm gave til Benedikte - Heartfelt present for Benedikte.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

Princess Benedikte was visited recently at Amalienborg by two classes of 6th graders from the municipality of Sermersooq in eastern Greenland. 35 in total.
Now, we are mostly familiar with western Greenland, but there are actually a few thousand Greenlanders living along the south eastern cost as well.

I understand they are very different from Greenlanders, well, they were say a hundred years ago. The language is different and the culture is somewhat different as well. The traditional costume for women ahd girls certainly is.
Instead of the reddish, multi-patterned costume of the west, the eastern costume is lighter and white, with red pipings. With a necklace of beads and a string around the head, with beads hanging down across the forehead. The hair is not hanging loose, but is tied in a knot on top of the head. - Imagine how different Mary and our Marie would look in this costume.

Anyway, sporting a pair of earrings made form narhwal tusk, Benedikte recieved the children in Christian VIII's mansion. And here Justine and Mati, aged eleven presented her with a present in the shape of a pair of earrings and an ornament shaped like a traditional wife-knife (*) to wear around the neck. All made from the horn of a moscus ox.

Now 35 children means life! Activity, chatting and what not. Especially when treated with candy and juice! They also happened to visit DK during a warm Indian Summer, so Benedikte asked for the doors to the balcony to be openen, and added: "But you really have to promise me that you don't step out on the balcony".

In her speech, she said to the children: "Thank you, for coming to visit me. I've been looking forward to that for a whole year and I hope you'll take back with you, many good and positive memories and that you treasure those friendships you have made down here. That can be of big significance to you, when you have grown up".

Benedikte hasn't been in Greenland: "- for I don't know how many years. The last time was in Angmagsalik and that was a big experience".

The children are spending a month in DK, where they among other things caught crabs, visited a farm, been to a public swimming pool (**) and gone with scouts to the woods (***). To that comes what the host families had arranged.
One of the girls said: "But now I really look forward to going home". She had bought a pair of earrings for her mother and a waterflask for her kid-brother.

The visit ended with the children singing for Princess Benedikte.

(*) Men were hunters, the women stayed at home in the hamlets. As such their work was very different, so they naturally used different tools, hence a wife-knife. - Incidentally made from bone at least until a couple of hundred years ago. Bone doesn't break in the intense cold.

(**) Swimming pools, let alone public baths are non-existing in eastern Greenland. The population simply isn't big enough.

(***) Trees in Eastern Greenland? No, so a forest is very much a novel experience for most of them. So are cities. The largest town in Greenland, Nuuk, has about 16.000-20.000 inhabitants. That would make it a small town in DK.
There are probably more inhabitans living in the large village where I live, than in the entire eastern Greenland.

And all these children was visiting Gentofte Municipality.
Last year my nephew was lucky to "get a Greenlander" staying in a month. It was a really wonderful experience :) Especiallly because my nephew (and all the other childen who had a greenlander) visited Tarsilaq in the spring.

So this is something that is going on every year: In the autumn the greenlanders comes to DK and in spring the danes go to Greenland :)

Princess Benedikte was pictured after having bought Christmas decorations at Bering House
of Flowers in Copenhagen, a shop that, according to the article, is well-frequented by members
of the family since years.

Thanks, Iceflower

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #48, 2011.
Lækkersulten - Craving for the sweet tooth (*)
Written by Casper Nielsen.

Indeed Benedikte went to a Christmas fair in Gustavskirken (church) recently. And they can't blame her if they didn't create a surplus!
She bought (hang on):
Chocolate-cones, (**)
Christmas ham,
warm-smoked salmon,
konfetti (a particular cube shaped kind of sweets),
Christmas-postcards,
two wooden nisser/pixies for the Christmas tree,
two candy canes (bolsjestænger 6264355 these are homemade, as you can tell)
not to mention that she looked hungrily at a cardigan in grandson-size.

She said: "It's always a nostalgic pleasure to come here at the bazar, because Christmas is something we can all gather around. - We are going to celebrate Christmas at Berleburg".

(*) Help! I need a word from you English speakers out there. Lækkersulten = When you feel a desire for sweets, cookies, chips, to go raid the fridge and other things you really shouldn't eat, because you are not really hungry.
- Lækkersulten is a very common word, so a translation would be most handy. Directly translated it means delicious-hungry.

(**) Ordinary cones (kræmmerhus) for decoration: http://www.fotoagent.dk/single_pictu...0273_-_722.JPG
More grand looking cones: http://www.lanterneshoppen.dk/Images...%A6mmerhus.jpg
Homemade cones: http://at-skabe-er-at-leve.dk/wp-con...a6mmerhuse.jpg
A simple variant of cones with chocolate buns: http://www.bisca.dk/Files/Billeder/E...flodebolle.jpg
- I know all about Christmas decorations! Mrs. Muhler has (traditionally) gone completely berserk this past week. Me and our dog didn't dare to remain still for more than a few minuttes at a time for fear of ending up being decorated as well!
