That's right, a Danish friend pronounced it that way for me.

King Frederick used to call his wife and three daughters his 4 leaf clover.
They always seemed like a closely knit family.

That is a nice thing to hear, Odette; especially about the older generation of royals. It seems that we so often hear about how distant parents of his generation were from their children. The three sisters seem very close to this day, and they seem like a very warm and loving family.

Yes they are close and at least Queen Anne Marie seems like a very warm
and affectionate mother and grandmother.
I have not observed Queen Margrethe or Princess Benedikte with their children so I cannot say whether they followed their father's example or not.

Queen Margrethe and her sisters have a warm relationship, the article talks about how the 3 sisters live a different lives far apart but meet whenever they can during the year especially during the summer holidays.
English article

Such a sweet article. I can't think of three royal sisters who are closer.

Great to hear that the three sisters love the companion of each other.
Queen Margrethe had the most busy life of the three due to her job as a regent queen but it seems that fact didn't affect her friendship with her two sisters. I hope Frederik and Joachim remain close like this forever.

Nice article - it's good to hear that they're all close, as 3 can sometimes be an awkward number. Margrethe talks in her memoir about how she and Benedikte didn't get along when they were younger (there is apparently a radio broadcast where little Margrethe can be heard hissing at her ) and didn't understand each other at all, so it's especially nice that they're close now.

This article includes one of my favorite royal sibling pictures ever - Benedikte holding onto little Anne-Marie's dress so she doesn't end up in the water.

Samtalebog er på fornavn med dronningen og hendes søstre - Politiken.dk

(The article itself discusses the book released a few years ago about the three sisters.)

We all lnow how artictic Queen Margrethe is and how involved she is in the arts.
Princess Benedicktte is a horse breeder and a dressage rider (as is her daughter nathalie).

What about Queen Anne-Marie -- what are her interests and hobbies (not including charities which they all do) ?????

Also what interest/hobbies do their children have (we know Fred loves his racing boats and Joachim his racing cars, Nathalie her horses)

Prince Frederik is of course in horse riding, sailing and possible anything to do with the IOC.
Prince Joachim as you say Racing cars.
Princess Nathalie horses like her mother.

King Constantine is an honourary member of the IOC so anything sporty
Princess Marie-Chantal fashion is an interest. She has also written a book.

According to the Greek Royal Family's website, Anne-Marie loves music and history.

Hello, i'm very interested in the relationship between the three sisters. Does anyone know facts about how the relationship was in the past and is today?

Who is particularly close?

IIRC, in the book Three Sisters (Tre søstre) the three mentioned that Benedikte and Anne-Marie were closer when they were younger because their age difference was smaller than that of Margrethe and Benedikte –*and Margrethe mentioned that she thought they were being too silly for her, she much preferred reading. Now, I reckon Margrethe and Benedikte see each other a bit more than they see Anne-Marie because she doesn't come to Denmark on a weekly basis.

They've mentioned in the past that the death of Queen Ingrid brought them much closer together. They see each other every summer – Anne-Marie usually comes to Fredensborg a week or two before the photoshoot which is why she's rarely there when the photos are taken. They are also all going to celebrate christmas together this year for the first time since 2006.
