Why on earth would they leave in the middle of a church service? Is that normal in denmark? I find it rather rude to get up in leave in the middle of the service.

Thanks Her Majesty for the info & pic's.
Do they always leave early? Also I dont find it nice, I mean the service isnt long for them not to have waited till it ended. I think someone at such a high position walking out in the middle of something causes attention and distraction from the service
Where was Joachim?

I'm sure what ever the reason for them leaving early, it was a good one. As for Joachim, must have had other commitments.

Okay but why? You might as well not go at all. Seriously, I think that it's rather hypocritical to say "Oh I go to church" but can't be bothered to commmit the 2 hours a year that it takes to sit through 2 whole services!

Why bother going at all if you are going to get up and leave in the middle. I have never been to a Christian service where there is any appropriate time to leave that would not be intrusive to the flow of the service.

I think that it is downright rude.

Yes. Usually Henrik and Frederik leave the services earlier...
last year Mary and Margrethe stayed until the end.
This year Margrethe was the only one who stayed until the end.

I think that's rather weird. The communion usually is the most important part of a church service (at least in catolic church services... don't know about the protestnts)... just weird!

Actually, I agree too. Although, whilst not religious I am quite traditional about it all (I didnt like that Mary wore pants to church at Christmas for example). There is no appropriate time during the service to leave. And what motive could there possibly be to do so?

but certenly is rude to live the churc before the service is finish, i cacn not belive the y do not stay atuntil the end, even if they don't like is just for respect to the others and the priest! it is very disapointing for me!

I agree,. It is indeed very disappointing
I wonder what's so difficult about sitting in church for about 2 hours. everyone else seems to be able to do this.
it's just very weird.
At least Margrethe behaved herself and stayed until the end!

Well, in most protestant religions the service is only about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, so if they only go at Easter and Christmas (High Holy days) then that's only two hours out of the year. They spend more time getting dressed in the year.

I'm not a religious person but I agree it's rude to leave a church service before it's finished. It's disrepectful to the religious peolpe and to the priest.

I have always been a fan of the CP couple, but leaving a Resurrection Day service before the end is rude, inconsiderate and the height of bad manners. Their early departure must have caused a stir as they are who they are and not just an ordinary citizen! The consequent disrruption to the service not to mention the speculation as to why they were leaving early.

What is it? "We've graced your church for a bit of they service, but really, we are far to busy and important to stay until the end".

we can only expeculate the reason why they live early, but really where is the manners , the education, it suppose they should give the example to all of us!!!!!!!!in ther position the least that they could do is to give the public the apologies and the reason why they live early.....really discusting!
just for twice in the year!!!!! what about if somebody live in the middle of their speech i am sure they wold not like this!!!! i am very disapointed

Well I think that if they are used to do that it is not rude at all, they used to do that in every church services and it migth be a reason for that, if they did that last year so they did the same this year.... it is quite normal and maybe there is a reason for that!!!
To me it is even more rude that Joaquim and Marie were not there!!!!

I agree here - they should have shown up. In total I find this attitude a bit careless, go there, not stay until the end and leave waving (Mary) even more when keeping in mind that QM is the head of the National Church (to be succeeded by Fred some day). That fur coat of Mary's is horrible, it's that old ladys' fur, astrakhan. She can still wear it when she's 80. Fred is greying out more and more and becomes a lookalike of Ari Behn

This just blows my mind. I can't even imagine leaving a service early (unless there is an emergency), especially a service at Easter. Easter and Christmas are two of the most important holidays of the Protestant religion. Even if you are "used" to doing it, IMO it is not right. Keep your butt in the pew for the entire hour or don't go. On another note, Mary's black coat doesn't bother me, but I would love to have seen some color, especially at Easter, springtime colors!

Perhaps even going to church is just a photo op. Unless they suddenly were inflicted with stomach flu such behaviour is called arrogance.
