Thank you for the links! I am so happy to see that she travelled with Marie to Russia. I think that it would be exciting to work for someone who is a new princess. Hopefully, they will be able to become friends.

It roughly translates to:


New courtier and private secretary to Her Royal Highness Princess Marie
Her Majesty the Queen upon application exempt Marianne Engel, Knight of the Dannebrog, for service as a maid and private secretary to Her Royal Highness Princess Marie, with the end of October 2010.

Her Majesty the Queen has concurrently appointed Britt Siesbye to court lady and private secretary to Her Royal Highness Princess Marie, with effect from 1st November 2010.

Kurt Bache
Chamberlain, Col.
Private Secretary

So what's the difference between being a "maid" and a "court lady" (assuming it's not a cleaning maid)?

Hofdame? That translates litterally as Lady of the Court = Lady in Waiting.

A maid is a paid servant.
A Hofdame = LiW is a person who is requested to aide a royal lady. That's considered an honour - and beforehand also to some degree an obligation. Just as noblemen were obliged to serve their king when needed.
As a private secretary, Britt Siesbye can expect to be paid a salary. But not when serving as a LiW.

Princess Marie and Britt Siesbye are close friends, so she is following the same pattern as Mary. I can't remember about Alexandra's LiW's.

Christine Lyng served as Alexandras private secretary after the divorce. She left somewhen after August 2007, but I don't remember when exactly.

Summary of a note in Billed Bladet #42, 2010.
Veninden bliver ny hofdame - The (female) friend become new lady-in-waiting.
Written by Trine Larsen.

As you know Marianne Engell is no longer Princess Marie's LiW. Instead Britt Siesbye, our Marie's close friend, has become her LiW and private secretary.
Marianne Engell has been LiW for two years and she says: "It has been a couple of lovely years. I have beeen incredibly happy to work for the DRF and especially for the Princess. But now that the Princess has had time to get used to the language and the live in Denmark and know how the royal court works/functions, she will be more busy and (she) is going to get more deeply involved with the jobs/tasks she has. That requires more decisions and meetings in Copenhagen and I no longer think it's that easy, when I live and have a family to take care of in Aarhus". (*)
Marianne Engell has been awarded the Knights Cross for her service.

Friday, Britt Siesbye was appointed LiW and private secretary to Princess Marie by Queen Margrethe. (**) She said: "I was of course very proud and happy for being asked and now I look very much forward to get started. - I see it as a strength and an advantage that we know each other so well".

(*) Aarhus (the spelling will officially change from Århus to Aarhus from the end of 2010) is located in Eastern Jutland. 2½-3 hours from Schackenborg and 3-4 hours from Copenhagen.
Apart from having two children, aged fourteen and sixteen, her husband is a senior manager and that also require some representative duties for her as well.

(**) A LiW, also a LiW for Marie, is serving the Majesty (and her family) as such the official request to serve as a LiW comes from Queen Margrethe.

What car are you driving? That's a two-hour trip MAX!

Anyway, thanks for the story.

How far is Aarhus from Copenhagen or from Marie's place?
I wondered why she wanted to step down, thanks for the article Muhler, makes sense now.

Volvo actually. Not with two children inside it ain't! And a pit stop more to stretch your legs. We old folks are not like you yearlings, we need breaks.
And you have to consider the Vejlefjord bridge. The traffic can be a bit slow there.

Not sure what you mean by "Marie's place", but Aarhus-Copenhagen is 2½-3½ hours from Århus (depending on whether you drive all the way, take a train or the ferry (by plane it's much quicker of course).

As for leaving I think it had something to do with Marie being able to take care of herself now, and she'll be doing more work.

Yeah, but where is that, other than Schackenborg and/or Copenhagen?

AFAIK, then they live in Copenhagen, since Oscar is managing "Ida Davidsen" (the open sandwich store founded by his grandfather) :)
