The more awareness about different exceptionalities, the better the world will be (and hopefully people won't be so fearful of approaching a person who is a little bit different).
Perhaps the person who is a little bit different should consider the feelings of those who want to help. Just recently, during a visit from Aust in Paris, I was made to feel unwelcomed by someone who had a hearing loss. I attempted to use my Auslan skills to help them get their message across but was told, rather unkindly, that my help was not required. I really feel that it's a two way street and I will not be offering my assistance again.

Thank you, Iceflower

This meeting became very dramatic. Billed-Bladet - Marys sikkerhedsvagt udløste stor-alarm hos politiet

While Mary was at the meeting. Outside the public glare. One of the PET officers present unknowingly triggered the alarm. From the police headquarters they tried to contact the officer but in vain and as such a large police force was directed to the Bella Centre.
The area was sealed off and the entrances covered by police.

By then the police learned that it was all a mistake. A technical glitch.

ADDED: Have tried to find more on this story elsewhere. So far no luck. - But then again the papers rarely write anything at all about the security around the DRF, not even about the firealarm when William and Kate visited some months ago. That was only mentioned in BB and in one other media.

Royals have a strange working life I think. Sometimes they don't have any outside events for a week to ten days or so and then they have several over the next week. So when we don't see them for a week or so they must be getting ready for the events they do have. Just a musing I have. I would like to see more from the Danida dinner.

Mary looks young in a lot of these pictures! I thought she and Frederik, (understandably), both looked completely worn out during most of the twins' first year. It's good to see her looking brighter!

What makes you think that she didn't wear tights? Sheer ones are hard to see :)

Mary rarely wear tights, especially sheer one. Sometimes she wears dark, opaque and has a tendency to match them with lighter shoes.

Huh? I have some closeups of her shoes and in all of them you can see sheer pantyhose.

I don't analyze Mary's legs so closely so you might be right. I lean on previous Mary's outings without tights even when weather was bad.

Yes thanks for all these pictures. It looked like it was a great day in Kolding. Mary looks really happy, she shines!

And the weather here in Denmark is also wonderful in these days

That movie shows every sign of being a block buster.
There are some heavy capacity actors in the main roles.

It has however been critizised by some historians for being too shallow and also for using contemporary language.
Okay, what can you expect from a movie, covering a pretty important and complicated subject in Danish history. Not to mention a scandalous love story.
And who can blame them for trying to reach a wider audience by using contemporary language.

The story about Struense and his reforms is endlessly fascinating in the sense that he was a workaholic and an idealist. Most of his reforms were implemented, even after he was removed from power. Reforms Denmark badly needed.
But as always you should try reverse things. From the nobility, the class of civil servants, the rest of the DRF and not least the State Council. Even the peasantry! - Who is this upstart who has usurped dictatorial powers? What is he doing?!? "Reforms, okay, fine. But hey, hey, hey, cool it! We want some influence too". - Struense was politically speaking a loose cannon, so he was inevitably stopped. At the cost of his head.

It must be interesting and I believe a little bit surreal too for Mary to watch a historical movie about the family she has married into and then go home to discuss it with her mother-in-law, who no doubt know all the details by heart.
At least she can't be sensing Struense's "ghost" so to speak, because the old Christiansborg where most of the events back then took place has burned down.
