I have often on these pages over the years mentioned the actor and entertainer Ulf Pilgaard and his parodies on QMII (and PH).
Today was his last day on stage for the 80 year old actor, and he ended his career with the annual and traditional parody on QMII.
When receiving the applause of the audience, QMII came on stage unannounced and presented him with what appears to be an ashtray - very appropriate.

AFAIK QMII has never personally seen these parodies, but her family has!
Ulf Pilgaard was presented with the Knights Cross some 15 years or so ago and he has on several occasions been invited to balls at the palace, where he was presented with a "Her Majesty desires to dance les Lanciers with You."

- I think that was a very sweet touch by QMII, who as we all know has a very keen sense of humor.

Here are a number of photos from his beloved, and pretty sharp albeit loving, parodies:

Who actually watched that particular parody with Joachim and our Marie:

And with QMII less than an hour ago:

It's all on video, so that should be online any moment.

Absolutely genius of the Queen to be there and head on stage. What an honor for the actor.

I should like to return to the actor Ulf Pilgaard, who was completely taken by surprise on stage, right after having given his last performance - a parody of QMII.
QMII presented him with a monogrammed ashtray - Ulf Pilgaard has given up smoking though but it will no doubt be a very treasured object.
This is a good video of what happened.
He spontaneously and overwhelmed both shook QMII's hand grabbed her elbow, something I can't ever remember seeing before.
- It's Ulf Pilgaard in the yellow dress...


He has been invited to gala at Christiansborg several times, and also danced les lancier with her.
During such a dinner he chatted with QMII, and illustrates how in this endearing video.
He said to QMII: Isn't wonderful that we here in this country can make fun of even the highest person in the land. What if it had been Sudan?
To which QMII replied: Then it would have been like this...
After which they both cracked up.


Ulf Pilgaard also made a parody of PH, which PH saw himself. He had a keen sense of humor:


In this parody, which is downright spooky, Ulf Pilgaard impersonates QMII meeting the press in connection with her 50th birthday - she was still occasionally very shy back then.
But the video is actually making fun of the downright idiotic questions QMII was asked at that press-meeting. I won't insult your intelligence by repeating them here. I fear you'll only damage your floor when your toes dig deep into your floorboards.

I don't think HM Daisy was expecting to be taken by the elbow but I doubt she minds THAT much; she is a professional artist herself and they have at least been introduced. Maybe she wasn't expecting he'd be so happy about it.

I don't know who manages Mr. Pilgaard's costumes but I think they also deserve some credit. The impression wouldn't be nearly as good without it!
