;) HI

thanks for the link Dennism

Queen M 2 sounds very British I think. Hardly an accent at all.

Times2222 02-02-2004 12:52 PM

I heard Queen M, Joachim, Fred of Denmark speak. I also hard King Harald and Crown Prince Haakon speak.

It seems that Joachim, Queen M and Haakon spoke the best English. I was surprised because Fred spent a year at my alma mater, Harvard and he and Mary must speak ENglish to each other.

I expected him to be more articulate in English. Maybe he was nervous.

I love that site. The stories from all of them are so random :P . Does anyone have a site that might have more of QMII talking? I've seen the really short one of her on the official site, but that's about it. Anyone know if any of QMII's Christmas speeches are online at all???
Thanks everyone (and BTW- I'm so glad we're back!!!)

Thanks so much for the link. The videos are fun to watch. The danes really love their RF.

SpiffyBallerina 04-06-2004 07:20 PM

Haha! That website is so great! It was really funny when Mary and Fred got on the balcony and people were all cheering and then QMII got up there and everyone went crzy for her. It's good to see that the Danes love her so much. :flower: :flower: :flower:
The only bad part about it is my computer which is SOOOO slow. I can hear the sounds in bits and pieces, but the video just doesn't work for more than a split second and then there is only sound. :doh: Does anyone know any little tricks for this problemo??? I really wanna see the videos!

I have question about QMII. Has she always done those hand movements when she appears on the balcony? Whenever she does what are the people saying , cause it sounds like raa or sometinhg, but I'm not Danish. Also if you are in the royal family do you haved to stand in the certain place on the balcony? Most of the pictures I see of the RF on the balcony Fred and Jochaim are on one side and Alex is on the other.

The sound you can herar from the people when Queen Margrethe 2. are on the balcony are hurra.
The reason for the hand movements are that she are abel to receive the love,warm and tribute from her people when they are shouting happy birthday to her and her family.
She and the rest of the Royal Family are also shouting a 9 times salute for Denmark when she has resived the cheering from the people.

SpiffyBallerina 04-08-2004 01:59 AM

Wow- that's very interesting! What kind of salute do they yell 9 times? Is there any video of that?

By the way, I was watching (or trying to watch :wacko: ) a video but it was so random that I had no idea what it was supposed to be about! Can anyone translate the video description for me?

Kronprins Frederik's fødsel og dåb

Thanks so much guys! :flower: :flower:

hi spiffyballerina.

Your video is about the birth and baptism of Crown prince Frederik. In your description it says that he was born by a caesarian late at night on the 26th of may, and that he, a couple of days later, was shown to the press in the garden behind amalienborg castle.

Hope that helps ;) ?

SpiffyBallerina 04-08-2004 06:19 PM

Oh Louise and H.M. Margrethe, you two are my new favorite people! :flower: Unfortunately for you, now I'll probably bother you with translations more because I am so very ignorant of the Danish language! :P Seriously, you two are super! I just wish those vidoes would load correctly on my computer! :cry:

I heard once HM Queen Margrethe II on BBC, talking about the British monarchy and about HM Queen Elizabeth II.
HM said the monarchist spirit in Britain is quite different, and she likes very much HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Margrethe spoke his English so brilliant with a very British accent. Fantastic.

Aussie Princess 10-19-2005 03:51 AM

Gosh, you'd swear she was British wouldn't you? Amazing!

BeatrixFan 10-19-2005 08:14 AM

Re:
 
Well, Queen Margrethe did spend time in England of course - in her teen years I believe. She could be an English Duchess and not a Danish Queen but there is a slight hint of an accent of different words.
It's rather similar to Queen Beatrix who has a Canadian accent for obvious reasons. Prince Frederik seems to have an American accent with his English and Queen Anne-Marie has a very continental sound when she speaks.
