Friday evening. 23. October.
And our Prime Minister has just held a press conference.

Due to a worrying increase in the number of people infected with Covid-19 in Denmark,*Denmark is again (re)introducing quite large restrictions.

For example: An assembly ban of a maximum of 10 people gathered in the public space.

That, I think, is going to affect the DRF's upcoming official events.

Over the next two weeks the Queen, Crown Prince Couple and Princess Benedicte have quite many official events.
And the Crown Prince Couple will hold the 'Crown Prince Couple's Awards' on Saturday.

I guess all of them, or most of them, will be canceled after tonight’s press meeting.

ADDED:
I had totally forgotten that we are allowed to gather 500 people for big / cultural / sports events. This can actually mean that the vast majority of the events still can take place.

This is the order members of the DRF will be vaccinated. - Based in the newly published plan for vaccinating the population. (See more in the Corona thread. https://www.theroyalforums.com/forum...ml#post2357226 )

QMII: She is a little tricky!
Unless she suffers from a chronical illness, she will actually end up in the very last group to get a vaccine.
If she does suffer from some sort of chronical decease, she will be among the first to get a vaccine.
However as she must be considered to be a person with a particular critical function in regards to the society, she may very well be in the second group to be vaccinated.

Apart from QMII. This is the order:
Nikolai.
Mary.
Frederik.

And in the very last group to be vaccinated:
Felix, Christian, Isabella, Josephine and Vincent.
However, children, especially smaller children may not be vaccinated at all.

I have omitted J&M with their children, since they live in France and may be covered by the French rules.
But should J&M be included the list will look like this:

Joachim and Henrik. (Henrik suffers from asthma.)
Nikolai.
Marie and Mary.
Frederik.
Felix, Christian, Isabella, Vincent, Josephine and Athena.

Benedikte is also a little tricky. It depends on where she has her permanent residence. Germany or Denmark.
If she belongs to the Danish vaccination program, she will likely end up in the very last group, since she as far as I can ascertain is in excellent health.

Billed Bladet also has an online Christmas-calendar with trivia about the DRF.

The third lid to be opened is this, with a funny pic of Mary BTW: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...-mary-vild-med

Mary is fond of vegemite.
While very common in Australia, it's something you have to look long and hard to find in Danish shops.

No doubt, I'd say.

Someone needs to educate me on Australian delicacies.

Our Prime Minister, Government and Ministry of Health are currently holding a press conference:

The Covid-19 infection number is rising and today is the highest infection number in Denmark we have seen so far. In the recent days there has also been a sharp increase in the number of inpatients and we will probably very soon have the same number of inpatients as in the Spring. Our Prime Minister says that right now it looks like the coming months (January and February) are set to be the toughest months for Denmark in regard to Covid-19.

That is why Denmark now goes into an actually total lockdown again - like in the Spring. From Friday 25. December and to 3.January Denmark will actually be closed down. Department stores, malls and shopping arcades are due to close tomorrow, December 17th. Service professions such as hairdressers and beauticians are due to close on Monday 21. December. All Danish school children will be sent home on holiday if they are not already sent home and leisure institutions close. This also applies from 21 December.

The lock down will last so far until 3. January.

I guess that means we still won’t see much to our Queen and Crown Prince Couple - except for Zoom meetings, greetings over their social media and what they otherwise can manage to do. Like in our last total lock down in the Spring.
And it will probably last some time into the new year.

Has DR1 already broadcast the program about the year of the royal family?

Yes, a week or so before Christmas. If you go to DRTV and search for Året i Kongehuset 2020, it should show up.

Right now there is a series in four segment as to why he is not crown prince to Denmark today rather than Frederik. Because he is great-grandson of Prince Knud.

I saw a part of the first segment, and I was not impressed with Ludwig! Not at all.
Shortly into the first segment we saw this young man of twenty, sitting in his room yelling for his mother to come do something for him. And I thought: Fortunately we have Frederik instead!
The impression is that he (or perhaps those behind the series) is trying to make things more complicated than it is. And also that he is trying to appear more intelligent than he is. If he is angling for sympathy, he has lost.
It is not my impression that people in general are particularly impressed with him either, nor really care. I base that on no one talking about him and the papers hardly bothering to deal with him.

Here is the first segment, please don't ask me for a summary...
https://www.dr.dk/drtv/serie/hvorfor...e-konge_150710
I think all of Denmark must be giving thanks that the succession was changed. Thankfully, he didn't inherit his great grandmother's teeth, unlike his grandfather and his siblings.

Oh yes! Thank you!

All experts go against the premise of the program anyway: Ludvig would be nowhere near the throne regardless.
But he got his 15 minutes, albeit with very low ratings.

They need 4 segments to explain why he would possibly be somewhere in the line of succession (if they had allowed female inheritance at least 2 decades later - if this change hadn't been made neither Frederick nor he would be in line...) instead of not being in the line of succession?

So, let's go with the premise they changed in 1980 (same time as Sweden - not sure about the titles of the children of the younger princesses; depending on whether they would have gone the 'Norwegian' or 'Swedish' way).

Denmark would have had:
1972-1976: HM King Knud
1976-now: HM King Ingolf

Current line of succession would be:
1. HRH Crown princess Josephine of Denmark
2. HRH Prince Julius Christian Emil of Denmark
3. HRH Princess Clara Dorthe Elisabeth of Denmark
- Oscar Christian
4. HRH Princess Camilla of Denmark
5. Princess Anastasia Caroline Amalie / Anastasia Caroline Amalie Rosanes
6. Prince Ludwig Christian Mikael / Ludwig Christian Mikael Rosanes
7. Prince Leopold Christian Ingolf / Leopold Christian Ingolf Rosanes
8. Prince Theodor Christian Emanuel / Theodor Christian Emanuel Rosanes
9. HRH Princess Feodora of Denmark
10. Princess Caroline Mathilde Margrethe / Caroline Mathilde Margrethe Ronnow

It is not a given that Ludwig would necessarily have been born had the succession not been changed. King Frederik IX followed tradition and did not grant his formal permission for Ludwig's grandfather Christian to marry a commoner, and in consequence Christian lost his place in the succession. Had Christian been nearer to the throne, perhaps he would have found a different wife in order to secure the line of succession. If not, unless Frederik IX relented like Olav of Norway, Ludwig would still have a been a Rosenborg.

Quite.

Regardless, Ludwig would have been pretty far from the throne. Fortunately...

And keep in mind that by 1976 the monarchy, let alone QMII, had not nearly the same public appeal as in say 1985. But QMII had two nice little sons and Queen Ingrid - a formidable support!

It's difficult to speculate what kind of king Knud would have been, but I sure wouldn't envy Ingolf taking over in 1976!

Of course, most likely at least some things would have turned out differently had the change of succession not been made. If Ingolf had married someone else and had children, Christian's children wouldn't have been that relevant/high up in the line of succession.

I didn't go for Rosenborg in the scenario above. If Frederick IX had accepted their choice of spouses, Josephine, Camilla and Feodora would have been princesses of Denmark - they wouldn't have been 'Rosenborgs', so I figured they would probably have taken their father's surname like ML and Ari Behn's children.

Yes, I understood that. My point (and it wasn't in answer to your post specifically) was that Josephine, Camilla, and Feodora would not have been in the line of succession (and would not have been princesses of Denmark) unless Frederik IX accepted the marriage of their father and mother as dynastic - which in real life he did not.

Not that much to speak about.

They saved a lot of money, because QMII's birthday was cancelled. So what should have been a deficit, turned into a surplus.

M&F had a minor deficit last year, but that has been turned around. They too have saved a good deal of money on Corona.
