I adore Her Majesty the Queen Margrethe's voice. Its really very lovely.

I did'nt know that Her Majesty the Queen Beatrix had a canadian tilt in her accent. Of course I know why but still did'nt think!

To me, Crown Pricne Frederik does'nt have an American accent, but a danish one when he speaks english. Crown Prince Haakon Magnus has an American accent.

Re:

I soooooo agree! She's got a lovely deep rich voice which really makes the spine tingle. I'm a sucker for a Windsor accent (having one myself)

Personally, I prefer the blend of the Australian and English accent's that CP Mary speaks with. and, IMO opinion her Danish is very soft and beautiful, even though I don't understand a word the CP says!

.lol. God love you Layla!

Yes the Crown Princess Mary's accent is most beautiful. Very soft and calming I believe! I have found that her voice sounds just as lovely in English and it does in Danish. Most articulate.

Most of the pictures I see of the RF on the balcony Fred and Jochaim are on one side and Alex is on the other.
Hej Everyone, I'm new in this forum, this is my first reply.

Queen Margrethe first used the hand movement after her father's dead. She was very sad of course, but she felt like standing there like a lamppost, so when she was announced as the new queen, ''long live Queen Margrethe the Second'', she tried what she was told by her father (before he died of course). It was a way to open up to the love of the people, and it does work, everyone starts 'hurraaaing' when she does it.

Thank you for this video, Paty. I had never seen it before, and it was very nice to hear Queen Margrethe's English. It is perfect! So is Prince Joachim's. Alexandra also has a very lovely voice.

The videos from 2004 are no longer available, as message 404 appears.

As for the others, there is much Danish on the screen, could a Danish speaking person indicate the steps to access them?

Many thanks in advance !
