Summary of Q&A in Billed Bladet #44, 2015.
Where a Christina Rasmussen is embarrassed by PH wanting to be king and why does the DRF continue to allow him going on like that?

Jon Bloch Skipper explains that any changes in PH's title is solely up to QMII, so she's got the ape. (Because she is the only one who can request the Parliament, through the government, to change PH's status to king since this requires a change of the Constitution. Any other titles does not require the approval of the Parliament).

Then he adds: "Having said that I also wonder why the court doesn't soon put a lid on this discussion, which is not in line with Danish history and tradition and which hurt the Prince Consort personally and the DRF as an institution.
Many Danes no doubt support the Prince Consort and feel he has been unfairly treated. But an increasing number, yours truly included, also believe He'd be wise in accepting things like they are and publicly express more satisfaction and gratitude over the, after all, tolerable life he has been given. Humility, as you know, go before glory".

- Well, no comments needed...

“The King of Denmark”

Over the last week or so, in the course of criticizing or making fun of the several mistakes of President Trump, some comedians and pundits have used the line
“Who insults the King of Denmark?”, (presumably referring to the failed offer for the US to purchase Greenland).

After Denmark and Greenland firmly rejected the offer, Trump cancelled his proposed state visit. The Queen was not amused, I assume.

The quote I heard yesterday on CNN referred to the “ Kingdom of Denmark”, not the King. Anyway, US journalists should know better that Denmark currently has a reigning Queen rather than a King

I’m reasonably sure that journalists know that, but not all pundits (aka ‘talking heads’) are journalists. At any rate, the comedians were enjoying their joke.
