she was in christian's christening? I don't see her.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

What does Princess Elisabeth do now that she has been retired from the Danish Foreign Office since 2001?
Sii forte.

Princess Elisabeth's Career

The royal website says Princess Elisabeth worked for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I assume since she is considered a member of the royal family she recieves compensation. Isn't that a conflict with modern royalty since they are to stay out of politics? Were her positions just honorary?

Princess Elisabeth, 74, was hospitalised over the weekend after feeling unwell following her brother Count Ingolf's birthday. She was taken to a hospital in Vejle as a precaution and will be released today or tomorrow.

A neat little discussion about the 75th birthday of Princess Elisabeth recently took place on the Scandinavian Royals Message Board:

Not really, she worked for the state and is retired now.

The Danish Monarchy - The Royal House - HH Princess Elisabeth

Princess Elisabeth was employed in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 1956 to 2001.
While employed in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Princess Elisabeth was posted to the Danish Embassy in Washington in October 1973 - 1976 and in August 1981 - 1985 as well as to the Danish UN Mission in Geneva in May 1989 -1993.

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #24, 2011.
Where a Gudrun Møller ask why Princess Elizabeth don't step in as Rigsforstander from time to time.

Jon Bloch Skipper replies that as far as he is aware, Princess Elizabeth have never been ask to sign a declaration in which she pledge to obey the Danish Constitution. That is one of the demands for being a Rigsforstander.
Why that is the case is open to speculation, hes adds.

Such a declaration and a copy is saved in the archives.

- Both Mary and our Marie have signed such a pledge.

Is that true that Pss Elizabeth never has signed that? I find that hard to believe, since she is in line for the throne and aren´t you obliged to sign that pledge when turning 18 and still wants to be in the throneline?

This isn't really a current event, but according to Noblesse & Royautes, Princess Elisabeth has sold her villa in Holte, in the north of Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark. Noblesse & Royautes also had a photo of the villa, which can be viewed here:

Here's the full article:
Google Translate

It looks like a lovely villa; I wonder who has bought it.

Princess Elisabeth laments: 'It's been a horrible year'

78-year old Princess Elisabeth is interviewed in this week's Billed Bladet:

The heading goes: I've had a horrible year!
A recap:
Princess Elisabeth has put her patrician villa North of Copenhagen on the market, because it's become too expensive for her. 'You've got to move house if you can't afford to stay put! I don't see anything embarrasing in admitting that, it's the same for many other people.'
At first she hated the thought of moving and spent many a sleepless night worrying which of her cherised possessions would fit into the flat where she's likely to end up.
Some eight paintings are put up for auction along with an old secretary and the dining room suite of her parents. She adds that ' some items have been returned to Amalienborg, so the Queen knows that I'm about to move out'.
It's also difficult for the Princess to come to terms with the demise of Count Christian, her younger brother. 'We were close, but I'm yet to visit his grave, so far I haven't been able to'. The loss of a few friends adds to Princess Elisabeth's sadness. 'It's been an annus horribilis, so 2014 has got to be better!', she adds.
The Princess had various health issues in recent years, an aching foot among them. The actual nature of the problem is not revealed, however she states that 'If my foot doesn't improve I'll have to make my excuses regarding the official New Year's levees. 'I cannot arrive in these' says the Princess and points to her sandals, the only comfortable footwear for the time being.
'My mother kept telling me that I didn't have any sense of humour, and God knows that there hasn't been much to laugh at recently. But never the less it's been a comfort that I've been able to see the grotesque (sic) amidst all the sad events.'
Princess Elisabeth is celebrating Christmas with friends in Copenhagen.

One comment from me:
Princess Elisabeth is last in the line of succession. It would take a catastrophe of cosmic proportions for her to accede to the throne! However she's been loyal to HM throughout her life and IMO it would be nice and proper of HM to give the Princess a suitable place to live for the rest of her life. I'm sure that the Royal Court has something at their disposal somewhere!

I agree with you I am sure the Royal family has a suitable place for her, and it is sad at this point to loose her possestions!

I have always admired this lady and feel sad she is doing it tough at this time of her life. Growing old and suffering health complaints can't be easy. I wish her well and a better 2014.

Oh I do hope that 2014 will be a better year for Princess Elisabeth and that her health improves. I admire her greatly for her honesty concerning the cost of living and that it is not embarrassing to admit to having to sell things and down-size. I hope she finds a great new place to live soon!

Prss Elizabeth still owns the Coronation brooch from 1881. A gift to Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna from her cousin Tsar Alexander III [Sasha]. This brooch then passed down to her daughter Alexandrine Queen of Denmark then to Caroline Mathilde and her daughter Prss Elizabeth. Because this brooch has such a wonderful Royal easily traceable provenance it could be worth quite a bit now as so many Russian Oligarchs are hunting down treasures from the Imperial period for the Kremlin Armoury or for personal use. Apparently there are not too many of these brooches around and they are considered scarce. I bet Geoff Munz [Royal jewel evaluator for Antiques roadshow] could put a nice estimate on it. The sale of this brooch may well be a way out of the financial doldrums for the Princess.
