Summary of article in Billed Bladet #21, 2014.
Written by our reporter in the countryside Trine Larsen.

Who went to Gavnø Manor, where a new tulip named after our Marie was to be presented and that's a very official ceremony!
Present were Marie as well as Helle Reedtz-Thott, a close friend of both M&F and M&J.
So far there are only 1.000 tulips in the world carrying the name "Princess Marie".
When Marie first saw the new tulip she exclaimed: "How beautiful it is".

This is actually the third tulip named after Danish royals, the first being Queen Ingrid from 1955, the second being Crown Princess Mary from 2009.

Helle Reedtz-Thott explained: "By cristening the tulip Princess Marie, we continue a centuries old Dutch tradition about christening the brith of each new flower that has been approved and accepted in the official list at Holland's Royal Onion Producers Association".

Marie was presented with a speciment of the new flower on a pillow handed to her by a young women dressd in Dutch national attire. Marie sprinkled the tulip with water and said: "May the seeding of you each autumn remind of the need for being visionary. May your long wither sleep be a testament to your patience. May your blossoming each spring inspire joy and renewal. - I christen you Princess Marie".
Then Mary signed an official document that will be send to the Netherlands to be formally registered.

Unsurprisingly it's a Dutchman who has produced the new tulip.

While there Marie also met Otto Reedtz-Thott.

And we all know that Baron and Baroness Reedtz-Thott are the owners of Gavnø

Thansk, Iceflower

I can add that the sale of Lego is booming! And that the company is now bigger than Matell, the Barbie company.

But then it's a durable toy! Some of the Lego bricks I played with as a child, has now been passed on to fourth generation of users. (I was second generation). I don't anyone really outgrow Lego.
So again the DRF is promoting Danish commerce. - And the Lego family is pretty close to Joachim and our Marie privately.

Marie is perfect for that sort of more intimate interaction with people. Being the chatty type of person she is, I can very well believe she and the lady had a nice chat about this and that - and they most likely both enjoyed it.

You are wicked, TLLK

The answer is: never more than one. (Explanation will follow).

There is an anecdote about some young men wishing to be admitted to an (British) officers academy, but there was only one vacancy left, so who to select?
It was decided to give them a test:
You are to construct a trench thirty feet long, three feet wide, six feet deep. Secure the walls with poles for every 1.6 yards and the trench must angle 38 degrees for every eight feet. You must also cover nine feet of the trench with planks and cover the planks with one foot of earth.
All the applicants started to measure up, discuss and sweat, except for one... He turned to an NCO and said: "Sergeant, dig a trench thirty feet....". He was admitted.

- Same thing with royals...

Thanks Polyesco.

It's handy to have a Civil Defence officer around... http://brs.dk/omstyrelsen/presse/nyh...hcke-hires.jpg
(That kind of steps ought to be banned. They are hopelessly unsafe).

But it's serious enough. Every second fire related death in DK involves an elderly. - Typically because they smoke in bed, in a chair and fumble or fall asleep - and that's the end...
Or forget a pot on the stove, or put something inflammable on the stove. - So the firealarms being put up are perhaps not so much to warn the elderly, but rather the neighbors.

I noticed a couple of things: Our Marie was for once accompanied by an adjutant. Presumably because this involved the Total Defence.
I also noticed a police officer nearby - which is just as rare.

The whole thing with firealarms is inspired by successfull initiatives in England and Norway.
