Last Sunday was a balmy and lovely spring evening and as such M&F decided to stroll the couple of hundred meters from Amalienborg, across a street, through a small park and down to Toldboden where a chaluppe from Dannebrog was waiting. Followed by an adjutant and a discreet gentleman the sight delighted locals and tourists who happened to be there alike.
Our reporter overheard people exclaiming: "Oh, how beautiful she is".
Well arrived, they waited a moment for the Regent Couple who came by car.
"Look, it's the Queen and Prince Henrik is there too".
Going through the usual rituals of kissing and curtsying the party boarded the chaluppe. - QMII as the last. The highest ranking enter the boat as the last one but leave it as the first one.
Then they sailed half a kilometer or so across the harbor to the Opera, where there was a gala-party for 550 of the around 2.000 members of Danish Yacht Club, the oldest yacht club in DK, which in this way celebrated its 150th anniversary.
On the occasion Frederik relieved his father as the honorary chairman of the yacht club.
QMII very appropriately wore a necklace made from signal-flags, (she has a dress with a pattern of signal-flags, which she is often seen wearing aboard Dannebrog.)
Present were also Ditlev and Dorthe Wedell-Wedellsborg and the goal-keeper Peter Schmeichel
