Princess Benedikte's 60th Birthday Celebrations: May 2004
 
Source: Berlingske Tidende

This Thursday, 29 April, Princess Benedikte celebrates her 60th birthday. The following is an interview she has given to mark this milestone.

My understanding is that Benedikte will celebrate her birthday in Paris, where her eldest daughter Alexandra lives and works (for UNESCO, I believe). And there will be more festivities on May 2 in Denmark, with younger sister Anne Marie and her husband in attendance, a horse show given as a gift to Benedikte by her elder sister Margrethe. Benedikte's youngest daughter, Nathalie, will be taking part in the show.

If you can read Danish, try the following: Mor inspirerer mig

Happy 60th Birthday to Princess Beneditke!

:clap: :clap: :king: :clap: :clap:

Courtesy of Brigitte's Worldroots page and the Glittering Royals MB, a picture from Benedikte and Richard's wedding on 3 February 1968. See how many of the royal guests you can recognize! (I would say that Sweden's Carl Phillip bears a very striking resemblance to his father in this picture. The apple does not fall far from the tree!)

Yes, see how many indeed! I would have to most agree with this as well. Carl Gustaf does look like his son here a lot. He also reminds me of one my cousins. Very similar look. My two cousins. They are twins.

I don't think it's a case of the King looking like his son, but a case of his son looking like his father, the King. Unless there is some reverse cloning process I don't know about? :innocent:

Dennism 04-30-2004 09:54 AM

Yes, true. I knew I messed up on that one when I wrote it. Itīs just that you mentioned Carl Philip in the post and so I went along with it from that angle. But yeah. Must be some "experiments" going on then!. :P

Princess Benedikteīs 60th Birthday 2004

Lena 05-02-2004 01:10 PM

I wonder, where the others (Alexandra+Joachim, Henrik...) are?!

Alexandria 05-02-2004 02:26 PM

Thanks for the pictures, Lena. :flower:

Little Richard von Pfeil lookd adorable in his mini suit! As his rosy-cheecked little sister Ingrid!

I am looking forward to more pictures of Nathalie (who participated in this equestrian event), and of the birthday girl's other sister, Anne-Marie and her husband who were also in attendance.

So far I have only seen a picture of Mary shaking Constantine's hand, but it was only the back of his head ...

I think Mary looked really good at this event, paleness and all. Very simple, stream-lined look for her, especially in this picture: Source: Klaus Moller: Mary

http://www.jp.dk/indland/tema:fid=9004/ the royal family in Tivoli . Go to video, on the left and click on Kongefamilien i Tivoli (maj. 2004): May's look is ver different. :o I think this is part of Benedikte's birthday.

sky 05-02-2004 08:11 PM

Sorry, video would be on our right. Mary reminded me of a pop star, not a princess( to be).

Alexandria 05-02-2004 08:48 PM

I saw a picture of Henrik there, wearing a burnt red/orange jacket talking to Constantine, so he wasn't MIA.

But still Alexandra and Joachim were ...

Fireweaver 05-02-2004 08:53 PM

maybe they're hiding? I read that Nikolaos of Greece was there, and I didn't see him in any pictures.

Cissan 05-03-2004 11:29 AM

I did not like Mary's black outfit. Horrible!

Lena 05-03-2004 11:46 AM

Strangely...no one seems to like it-except me ;)
But maybe black isnīt the right colour for a person, who is rumoured to be too skinny.

micas 05-03-2004 12:38 PM

I have to confess that i don't understend the outfit.
That is trousers, scort or the 2 toguether?

Alexandria 05-03-2004 02:19 PM

I have to say I am not a fan of this black outfit at the Tivoli, either. She looks like she's ready for a rock or even heavy metal concert, but a night at the Tivoli? (A bit gothic even?) It seems much too casual when you see what Benedikte's daughters are wearing, and what the Queen and her sisters are wearing, too. Such a letdown, too, since Mary had a very nice outfit at the equestrian event earlier that day.

May 3, 2004 - TV 2

Mary Warmly Greeted by Queen Margrethe

Denmark's future Crown Princess Mary Donaldson was warmly hugged by her future mother-in-law HRH Queen Margrethe II when they met yesterday at Princess Benedikte's 60th birthday party. The royal family was first gathered at a horse show at Christiansborg riding ground to celebrate the Princess, and afterwards Princess Benedikte's two sisters, Queen Margrethe and Princess Anne Marie, had arranged a surprise party to celebrate their sister in Tivoli. But, the birthday girl did not get all the attention. As Mary and Crown Prince Frederik arrived, guests visiting Tivoli made a riot to get a glimpse of the couple who were applauded as movie stars.

Denmark on May 14

Several museums in Denmark have cooperated to conduct an investigation concerning the whereabouts of Danes on May 14th, the day of the royal wedding. Will you be watching television, and will that take place on the job? Or are you going to Copenhagen to wave? Or perhaps the day will not be celebrated? These are some of the questions which will be asked in order to document how the Danes experience May 14th.
