THANK YOU to all the posters who have taken the time to post the images from the Funeral Mass of the late queen. I knew that her family was very fond of her but I guess I did not realize the extent to which she was deeply loved, even revered by her family and friends.

The warmth and genuine love shown at that service was something I have never seen before at a royal funeral. I think Fabiola, elegant yet famously spontaneous...would have loved it.

During the sign of the peace, everyone went to kiss him, and with Mathilde and the children he put his hand on their cheeck while giving them a kiss on the other. He's a real grandfather, even to kids who aren't his grandchildren I love how united and close this family is

I didn't know either that P.Beatrix and Q.Sophia were close, but it's very nice to see! THank you for the pictures
If I recall correctly they arrived and left together for Crown Princess Victoria's wedding, or certainly they sat next to each other. They seemed very close then and I think I remember Beatrix was motioned by an usher to leave before Sofia was but she stopped and waited for her and they left arm in arm. I'm sure I haven't made it up but would have to look for pictures/videos to be sure.

Edit - Ok so I decide it would annoy me so much I may as well look for the video. They didn't sit next to each other, I think the Danish and Swedish Kings & Queens sat between them. But there are definitely pictures of them arriving together (but whether that's at the church or the palace reception I can't tell but they definitely leave the church together,Beatrix motioning for Sofia at about 44mins in this video

Victoria and Daniel at the Nobel banquet. It is great to see the fun and joy in their relationship.

Oh that is a little cracker! I would love to have been a fly on the wall to hear that conversation. And doesn't Victoria look absolutely full of mischief as she winks.

One of my favourite moments from Queen Fabiola's funeral - the reward of a proud and loving father.

Well you can see that Daniel is sitting opposite the Nobel Laureate Eric Betzig, so yes, Victoria was blinking to Daniel.

A woman named Charlotte has sent in her private picture and experience to Facebook - I find it charming because it's always fun to see the little sweet moments the media never capture, but only a private person got a picture of because she stayed when all other left and because she was quick with the camera:

"Hey..I got a really nice picture of Frederik & Mary during their summer cruise..They had had joint events throughout the day but should then proceed to each their arrangement on the route.. And while the entire press and journalists rushes to their cars to be ready for the next point, this happens.. Frederik & Mary give each other a warm farewell kiss before they get into each their car and continue the day's program..So fine and genuine.. and something only we private persons experienced.."

Here's the picture:

Lovely pics, coming from a family where parents have split up myself I sometimes find it awkward when "step" parents ( or bonus parents what a fab name!) look like they are being parents to their step children but I find it so different with joachims children, they all seem to get on so well with both their parents new partners, and of course marie herself comes from such a background!

Love these. If that's not love, I don't know what is.

Billed Bladet has just re-uploaded these pictures of Princess Isabella with Grandpapa Henrik. They definitely belong here, huh?
