Thanks, Polyesco.

I must admit I'm confused. I don't understand why some wear the gala uniform while others wear the mess uniform.

That would never happen in the army!
In the army, people have a pretty good idea how to dress...
But this being the air force we should be thankful they don't show up wearing leather-helmets, scarves and goggles.

Follow up.
The voices in my head have told me that the reason why some wore the mess uniform, while others wore the gala uniform, is that the ones in the gala uniforms are new recipients of the award, hence a reason for celebration, while those in the mess uniform have already received the award - but are invited for various reasons.

Whether that is correct, I don't know.

So nice seeing Mary with her MIL. Glad QMII has such support from her family. I'd love to see the grandchildren do some engagements with her (not formal ones of course, but fun ones).

Thanks, Iceflower & polyesco.

Today it was more a question of mutual support as Mary was to attend the funeral of a dear friend this afternoon.
The show must go on, also for royals...

Presumably someone's granddaughter or daughter. Who later on donated this gift-calendar to the museum.

Looks a bit 70's to me in style. I seem to have some recollections about seeing this red-white dairy-pattern all over the place in the early 70's.

The calendar is very similar to the ones QMII made for her grandchildren. Here's Joesphine's:

Have to admit I'd assumed it was something that QM had made as it looks so much like her advent calendars. Billed Bladet seem to think so as well if I've read their article correctly:
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...mary-til-grine

QM seems to be in fine form today which is lovely to see. I can just about work out basic written Danish but I still find spoken Danish impossible to understand so if any of our Danish friends here could tell me what she was saying to cause such hilarity in the videos I'd appreciate it.

You are right. The Victoria calendar was made by QMII.

I couldn't quite make out what she said, but it was something about it not being that big work when there are only two grandchildren, but as more are born...

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #12, 2018.
Written by Marianne Singer.

Mary and QMII arrived in the town of Greve in separate cars. (Presumably Mary came from Amalienborg and QMII from Fredensborg.) Mary who arrived first curtsied deeply to QMII and in they went in order to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Association to Promoting Needlecraft.

After a tour of the needlecraft museum it was time for QMII, who was in fine spirit, to give her speech.
She had donated a homemade gift calendar (for Victoria) to the museum and in her speech she said:
"I have, since I started having grandchildren, done like so many other grandmothers (*) and sewn Christmas calendars. And that was a piece of cake when there was one, and when there were two, and there were three, but then some more came along and then there were twins.
But I did come up with a form of Christmas calendar, which I myself think is pretty good. And which my grandchildren like and which their mothers hopefully also think is manageable. So it became a Christmas-heart, and for each heart, for each day, there is a motif, and then there is the possibility for sewing the name of the grandchild on top. I have now had this made for all my grandchildren and I hazard to guess that the basket is now full. So I'd like to pass on the possibility to others and may also find delight with that Christmas calendar".

A part of the museum's current exhibition is dedicated to handywork and sketches done by QMII, and this was a world she introduces Mary to.

QMII herself wasn't particularly interested in needlecraft when she was a child and teenager, but like all girls of her generation she had learned to master the basics. The one rainy summer at Gråsten, when she was 20 she did some embroidery and was hooked.

The calendar she has made will be put up for sale also as napkins and tablecloths. The pattern itself can be purchased in embroidery shops.

(*) There are three words for a grandmother in Danish.
Mormor = Mother's mother.
Farmor = Father's mother.
Bedstemor = Grandmother. - Not that many grandmothers are keen on being called bedstemor though. As it in many eyes implies they are ancient.

On the other hand there is only one word for a grandchild in Danish that is currently being used. Barnebarn = Child of child.
Beforehand (some 100 years ago) there used to be five names for a grandchild.
Barnebarn = Child of child.
Sønnedatter = Son's daughter.
Sønnesøn = Son's son.
Datterdatter = Daughter's daughter.
Dattersøn = Daughter's son.

But here is this weeks issue of BB:

My mother has demanded being called "Bedstemor", since she is from Jutland and have both a son and a daughter :) That was the best so the future grandchildren didn´t had to fight whether she was "farmor" or "mormor" :) :) :)

My Danish stepmother is called "famse" by her grandson/my nephew. I hadn't heard it before he came along but it's apparently all the rage in the commuter belt around Copenhagen.

The three lovely Danish sisters arrive with the Dannebrog in Kolding last night where they attends today at the opening of the exhibition "Magtens Smykker" in connection with Koldinghus' 750th anniversary.

And what lovely pictures now 2018 and then 1950 of the sisters posted from the Palace

"It is more than 20 years since H.M. Queen, H.K.H. Princess Benedikte and H.M. Queen Anne-Marie all three have last sailed with the Dannebrog together.
Due to the fact that all three sisters were gathered again on Dannebrog yesterday, a picture that had been framed on the King ship since 1950 was restored."

Thanks Iceflower - I gather from Billed Bladet that it is 21 years since all 3 of the sisters have been together on the Dannebrog so I imagine they must have had a great night on board reminiscing.
