DR1 has highlights from St. Petersburg at 19.00. I've looked around several times, but that's the only transmission I can see. I guess the ceremony will mainly be in Russian, or something like that, which might make a direct transmission hard for Danish tv-viewers.

Seeing that this thread supposedly deals with current events, I find it relevant to focus on TRH The Crown Prince Couple being in St. Petersburg to take part in the reburial ceremonies of Empress Dagmar. Today, the couple opened an art exhibition at which HRH The Crown Prince delivered this speech: http://www.kronprinsparret.dk/45f2774/Year/2006

In English the speech goes:

Speech given by HRH The Crown Prince at the opening of the art exhibition “Court Portraitist Laurits Tuxen” in St. Petersburg on September 27 2006

Today, we open an impressive exhibition on the Court Portraitist Laurits Tuxen whose Fredensborg Painting became the beginning of a life as the leading portraitist of royalty in Europe.

The great summer days at Fredensborg where King Christian IX and Queen Louise – “the parents in-law of Europe” – gathered the family, produced the famous royal portrait from 1883 in which Tsar Alexander III and Empress Dagmar, as the most dignified of the royals there, were guaranteed prominent placing in the grand group portrait.

The commissions brought Tuxen far and about, and he visited Russia four times. The many preliminary studies and portraits brought Tuxen close to Empress Dagmar and her family, not least the children.

In his memoirs, Tuxen has vividly told of his visits to St. Petersburg where he resided at the palace at Gatchina for a period of time. Tuxen got to experience and portray not only the Imperial Couple’s home life in St. Petersburg, but also the wedding of Nikolai II and later his coronation in Moscow. Tuxen did indeed become the Danish court portraitist of the tsars.

It is with great joy that The Crown Princess and I visit St. Petersburg. This beautiful and impressive city which I myself first visited in 2002.

The Winter Palace forms a distinguished framework for the beautiful, historical paintings, and I am convinced that the works of Laurits Tuxen will be one of this autumn’s highlights at the Hermitage Museum.

I hope that the exhibition will be visited by many guests and hereby strengthen the friendship between Denmark and Russia.

I am rather touched by this reburial & rereading 'Little Mother of Russia' by Coryne Hall (about Dagmar). I was hoping she would be reburried for some time but now it happens it feels like the last page of the book has been turned.

american TV either. (i'm hoping the history channel will do something)

thanks so much to everyone that's contributed to all the threads on this moving ceremony. She's home with her family-God Bless Them. never forget her family was murdered! this is something, i would have never thought could happen in my lifetime, i'm so glad Russia is moving forward and gave the
empress such spendid homage and respect.
the little pics (until i enlarged) look like one of those fabulous paintings from the royal court they toured in the museum yesterday.
does anyone recognize the pin Mary is wearing. i assume its a badge, since i know zip about it, i'm sure one of our sharp eyed experts can tell me, thanks ahead of time.

According to the website of Danish TV2 (http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/article.php/...3.html?forside), Mary did not feel well at some point during the ceremony 'because she had not had enough liquid' according to Eugene Olsen, the gentleman standing to the left of Mary in the picture.

Nice, comfortable wiiiiide coat Mary is wearing!

Does anyone know if Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna attended the reburial? I have only seen proof that her rival Prince Nicholas attended.

Yes, she met Mary and Frederik at the entrance to the cathedral today, and walked in with them. (And was placed prominently in the front.).

It happens a lot in ceremonies like this, that people doesnt feel ok, the fumes of the candles or incense, the crowd and the lack of fresh air, add to not drinking or eating properly before it or eat too much. I think is quite rush to even think she is pregnant
