And among the journalists present were two children from the Children's Paper, complete with presscards.
They were two girls aged eight and eleven - accompanied by the adult editor-in-chief of the paper, but they were the ones asking the questions.

The Children's Paper is a serious paper aimed at children in the younger classes at school. Written (mainly and with some editing of course) by children, for children, from children's views and about topics that for various reasons interest children.
That also include various "adult" topics like politics, current top news stories, culture (as in this case) and so on.
Because children at that age may not necessarily read papers or watch the news, or really understand what it is about. But they do know of course hear about current news and pick up what the adults around them talk and are concerned about.
Say global warming, something that can genuinely scare children! This paper tries to explain such an issue in a way that is relatable for children by using children in the editing process.
The paper is as such often used as basis in the classes at school.

But back to the press meeting. Being children, they had prepared and asked sensible questions. One each.
Addressing QMII very correctly, the first girl (the youngest) asked whether QMII had ever wanted to be an ordinary girl.

QMII did IMO the right thing, she smiled friendly and obliging and didn't laugh, but answered the questions seriously.
She replied that she had indeed been an ordinary girl when she was a child.

(You can of course debate that one! Even though she wasn't destined to become a monarch until she turned thirteen, her childhood was hardly normal. But everything is relative I guess.)

The next question was whether QMII believe it is good for children to be creative. And here QMII gave them a long and pretty adult reply. QMII does indeed believe it's beneficial to be creative. It's good for the imagination and the creative process from mind/fantasy to the hands to the finished result is a wonderful thing as well.

QMII was later asked by an adult reporter what she thought about the children's questions. (IMO she probably thought: They were more sensible than the ones you have been asking!) QMII replied that she thought they were well-prepared and asked good questions and she wouldn't have mind if they had gotten the formal address a bit wrong. (They didn't.) And using one of her favorite expressions, she found it amusing.

Throughout the day, the Queen participated in tests at the ballet show "Snow Queen",
which premieres in Tivoli on Sunday 1 December.

Here are a number of images from today's test.

Has Queen Margrethe II done any painting on any handmade glass Christmas ornaments?

A clip with QMII as scenographer has gone viral, at least on the news worldwide. It has been estimated that some 400 million viewers have seen the clip.
Needless to say Tivoli and Visit Copenhagen are very pleased!

Has Crown Princess Mary ever helped Queen Margrethe with an art project?

Don't think so.
Apart from photography I don't think Mary is the creative type.

She did during a state visit, to Vietnam I think, paint a plate at a factory sitting next to QMII - who of course painted something presentable.
While the plate Mary painted was more... simplistic.

But then neither Frederik, Joachim nor our Marie have done any particular artwork I can recall right now.

Simplistic! Dear Muhler your command of the English language is outstanding. A brilliant choice of word.

Mary is more the sporty adventure type, rather than the crafty type. She possibly plays a mean hand of cards and could be a reasonable chess player.

That is the moment I was remembering too. Yes, the Queen looked more enthusiastic about it
Mary from the start: State Visit to Vietnam: Day 3
