Danish-born Czarina to make final journey to be reunited with Russia's imperial family
http://famulus.msnbc.com/famulusintl...ts=92220060149

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Sept. 22 — The circumstances may be solemn, but Dimitry Romanov is quietly rejoicing.

On Saturday, the 80-year-old retired bank clerk will escort the remains of his distant relative Czarina Maria Feodorovna, the mother of Russia's last emperor, on a final journey from Denmark to St. Petersburg.

''Strangely enough, it is a joyful event,'' said Romanov, who lives in Denmark. ''She will finally rest with her family.''

Does anyone know if there will be a live feed of the reburial? Will Christian accompany his parents to Russia? I'd heard about this being discussed between Denmark and Russia so long ago, and I'm so glad that it's finally being put into action. I think it's what Marie would have wanted. So the ceremony should be starting any moment now?

I think it's very disappointing for Xenia and her brothers to not be attending. Are there going to be any other descendants of Marie that actually attend the reburial? Obviously none from her four sons, since all four of them and five of her male-line grandchildren predeceased her, and the sixth died in a car wreck a few years after her death without having any children. So will any of GDss Xenia or Olga's descedants actually be allowed to go?

The transmission has started.

Princess Birgitte of Bourbon Parma, in a wheelchair, is escorted by her grandson Jacques (sp?). According to the commentators, the family lives in the area.

And Mærsk McKinney Møller with his daughter, arrived just after them.

It seems that Xenia might've been a bit premature in her interview in Billed Bladet, as they seem to have been invited after all. Paul Kulikovsky will be giving a memorial speech, according to the Danish foreign ministry.

Nicolas Romanoff and wife arrived, along with a multitude of other Romanoffs. Olga Romanoff, and Xenia Kulikovsky sitting next to each other.

Countess Ruth of Rosenborg arrived with her son Count Axel of Rosenborg. As well as a bunch of many other of the Rosenborg branches.

Krone 11. Princess Elisabeth of Denmark and her brothers with their wives: Count Christian and Countess Dorte of Rosenborg, and Count Ingolf and Countess Sussi of Rosenborg

Krone 5. Princess Benedikte of Denmark

Prince Joachim arrived solo.

Krone 1. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrives. Mary curtsied slightly before the coffin, I think.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik arrives, so the service will start shortly. The queen is wearing a hat with a blue feather, and also curtsied (more deeply than Mary, despite a recent knee surgery) in front of the coffin. The commentator mentioned that it was one of the few times she'd seen Queen Margrethe curtsy after becoming a queen.

I was out at Holmen's Kanal to try to catch some pictures. These are fairly small, but they give an idea of it all.

The start of the parade.

The coffin.

Well - I turned out to pay my respect and I think it was a beautiful day with lots of sun and happiness for Denmark to say a very last goodbye to their lovely princess...

I think one reason for it might be that they had a fairly long route so people might've spread out a bit. I looked up at Christiansborg from where I was standing and it was considerably more crowded up there. (Which was why I didn't go up there as I wanted to stand in front to get pictures.) It was also considerably more crowded on my side of the street, closest to the lane wherein the wagon was driving than on the other side. I was standing next to an elderly lady (also with a camera), and quite a crowd had built up next to us, so two guys in their 20s asked what was happening. After we told them, they ended up staying to catch a climpse of it all - dragging out their cell-phones to take pictures of it.

The Royal Family attends a solemn mass in memory of Empress Maria Feodorovna.
The coffin with Danish Princess Dagmar (1847-1928), the second last Empress of Russia, Maria Fedorovna, passes the Royal Palace of Amalienborg in Copenhagen after a re-burial ceremony in the Roskilde Cathedral 23 September 2006. A solemn, emotional mass was held today at Roskilde cathedral for the last Russian tsar's mother, a Danish princess who became empress of Russia in 1866, before she is reburied in Saint Petersburg, in line with her final wishes.

I'm not sure on how many pictures I can place in a single post, please feel free to merge it.

I'm curious. I noticed that during the service, Joachim was seated with Mary to his left, but who was on his right? Was it Princess Benedikte?
