It starts out with Frederik IX giving a speech at Benedikte's wedding. Here he is lamenting how the last has now left the nest and is on her way to build her own nest, while mom and dad sit behind singing: "Ach, Du Lieber Augustin ( - alles ist weg, weg, weg - a lamenting song).
He goes on to telling about how Benedikte recently stood in for Queen Ingrid, apparantly while Frederik IX was present. She did very well indeed at an international scout jamboree (I think it's called) and before she went up behind the rostrum dad asked whether he could give her a kiss. - No!
But he was nevertheless so proud of his daughter that she got a hug after she had given her speech.
Later on QMII and Queen Anne-Marie in a kind of dialogue talk about events in Benedikte and Prince Richard's marriage.
QMII stating that they are not that ordinary, both having their quirks and interests.
Apparantly friends of Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid teased the two older sisters by calling Benedikte there "luxury-friend". Benedikte prefer things to be neat, neatly dressed and with neat hair. - and she ended up as scout!?!
Sleeping in a tent. - Did she ever sleep in a tent? Heaven help the mosquitos! Campfire in the rain and mud in the mascara. But the uniform, that was elegant!
They go on to tease their sister for her fondness of making lists of everything.
They then go on to tease Prince Richard who is milling around the woods of Berleburg, including putting guests to work as well - and at a high gear!
Berleburg is not a quiet place!
They have have a common talent for organising. Richard organise the hunts, Benedikte the dinner and the lists...
They also mock their sister for an exteremly round about way of shipping towels to Berleburg.
They also tease Richard for an episode where he had toothache and told Benedikte to call Queen Ingrid to have a dentist standing by in Copenhagen. And all the Berleburgs had their teeth fixed. Anne-Marie remarks that it was a good thing he had his mouth fixed, because he use it a lot...!
They proceed to tease their sister for being a perfectionist and sometimes, often, using a German word in the middle of a sentence: "Jah"? QMII giggles.
Their marriage has setteled down by now, when Richard yell, Benedikte keeps queit. When Benedikte's eyes go black, Richard is scared! They have their children, Gustav, Alexandra, Nathalie and the fole, Daydream. (Said in chorus).
That was the essense. And Thanks for pointing out this very funny episode from Richard and Benedikte's silver anniversary.
