Thanks. Eya.

In case anyone are wondering the guardsmen wear the tent-hats in warm weather, instead of the bearskin caps - which as the name suggests are very hot.
Apart from the risk of falling ill from the heat, a guard who is on the verge of melting is much less vigilant.

They should consider introducing those hats in the UK as the poor soldiers here drop like flies wearing the bearskin hats.

They are probably still trying to drag her away from that exhibition in this very moment.
If it hadn't been against the protocol, she would no doubt be running ahead of the crown car to the exhibition.

It's a interesting and informative and I look forward to seeing it myself later this summer.
There are two things in regards to QMII I would so much like to witness:
A) Her reading aloud from a fairy tale.
B) Discreetly follow her while she is being shown around at an archeological exhibition.

Haha. I believe Her Majesty is the most interesting of all the Monarchs in Europe today. If she wasn't so busy you would love to sit down and talk for hours with her.

I so agree with you both. I so envy her sons that she read Lord of the Rings to them when they were young (but I'm not so sure they were quite so keen,). Following her around an archaeological site would be amazing. I'd love to see her guest on some of the many archaeology TV programmes we have in the UK re one of the Viking sites

I honestly think she'd be cult on the spot!

I can easily see her and Tony Robinson together.

They hope to attract Chinese tourists in particular with this new center.

H. C. Andersen is pretty big in China. Some of his fairy tales having been mandatory in Chinese schools for many years.
The Girl with the Matches illustrates the horrors of capitalism and was of course a particular favorite of the Communist party. His fairly tales can be interpreted in many ways that suits the reader.

In DK I'd say the Emperor's New Clothes is the most popular among adults. - And IMO will never, ever, become irrelevant...

Looks good.

Today, August 6, Queen Margrethe visited Askov Folk High School and the historic gathering place Skibelund Krat in Vejen.

The visit is part of the postponed celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Reunification of Denmark and Southern Jutland in 1920. Last year the celebrations were canceled.

Wonderful that the visit went ahead after being postponed and I especially like the queen's mode of transport today
