PH has been on a trip for WWF to Myanmar: Prins Henrik overrasker: Er taget på hemmelig rejse til Myanmar | BT Royale - www.bt.dk

He visited the capital and also went to a large forest in the southern part of the country, which is under threat from being reduced significantly due to Myanmar's building up it's infrastructure and investments in industry. That among other things threaten the tigers living in the area.
The trip was kept secret - for whatever reason.

- How is the current security-situation or crime rate in Myanmar? I'm not up to date:

Myanmar used to be very safe for tourists but now, with all those Danes running around, it's quite dangerous there.
No, seriously, crime rates in Burma, especially involving foreigners, are lower than those of many other countries in the Southeast-Asia region although the rate has been increasing since the country's opening.

Dronningen hægtede prins Henrik af i svingdøren | BILLED-BLADET

The Regent Couple went to the Opera to see the Finnish National Ballet perform on the occasion of Finlands 100th anniversary for its independence.
Apparently QMII was so eager to see the ballet that she rushed through the revolving door, leaving PH stranded for a few seconds - in the door...

I think it's more plausible that QMII simply walked too fast for her husband, who is now a slow walker. - So he was left trailing behind...

- aaaand she's used to be on her own by now...

Queen Margrethe opened the annual Treasure Trove exhibition at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen today, January 28.

The exhibition showcases a selection of treasures discovered by amateur archaeologists and detectorists across Denmark.

Thank you, Iceflower.

Yes, the National Museum in particular is being flooded these years with archeological artifacts and several major finds have been made. Due to amateur archeologists with metal detectors. - Some of the finds are even sensational!
We can rest assured that QMII has read about every single one of them! You may also recall that she visited an archeological dig during the summer cruise. - They could hardly tear her away...

All finds are to be reported to the museums. There they will be assessed by experts an if insignificant the finder can keep them. Like flint-arrows and what not and sometimes pins as well.
But silver, gold, weapons, tools are much sought after by the museums for analysis. Such finds are usually labelled "danefæ" which can be translated to national treasure. Once assessed by the expert the finder will receive a reward as well as an amount equivalent to the metal-value of the find. And the finder's name will be registered in connection with the find. (There is some bragging rights there). - But due to the many finds, there is now an almost two year waiting list before the finds have been assessed.

However, it is a criminal offense to sell "danefæ", even if you don't know if it is "danefæ". Because unless you are very ignorant you should always go to the authorities and most if not all amateur archeologists dream about the day they end up in the news after having been the cause of a major find.

The holy grail among DK archeologists, amateur as well as professionals, is to find either the broken off piece of the gold-horns seen here or a third horn. - That is a genuine possibility and if that happens QMII will rush to see them, even if she personally has to dig herself through two meters of snow!
Here are replicas of the horn. (The horns themselves have a dramatic story. The originals were stolen and melted down). https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...5_original.jpg

Thanks again, Iceflower.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #5, 2017.
Written by Dorte Quist.

As you can see in the galleries posted above QMII went to the National Museum to open the exhibition of Danefæ. And to put it mildly, it was difficult to drag her away!
After giving a speech to the amateur-archeologists present, QMII went for a tour of the exhibition, taking her time! - Despite having seen many of the displayed items in other museums all over DK over the past couple of years.
QMII studied archeology at Cambridge in 1960-61.

QMII was seen carrying a bag from Longchamp, Le Pliage Heritage.

- I like that QMII as usual cuts down a silly question from the reporter at the end of the video. In response to the question of what danefæ that has been the biggest find, she responds (loosly translated): "That's kinda... What's the biggest? A skyscraper or a crack from a thunder-flash".

The article I referred to yesterday has now been moved to the subscriber section. Never mind. I remember the most important bits.

Afsløring: Hemmelige forberedelser til Dronning Margrethes begravelse er langt fremme | BT Special - www.bt.dk

The construction of the sarcophagus in which QMII and PH will be laid to rest in Roskilde Cathedral is nearing completion.
It consists of several glass pieces each weighing about a ton, which must fit together perfectly or the thing will fall apart.
A trial-assembly will take place this summer.

The designer is Danish, but the artist constructing the sarcophagus is Czech and it's also there it is being made. The artist is delighted! It's a big challenge, because it appears to be the largest glass-sculpture ever made, at least that is made to last.
QMII in particular has been very much involved in the creation process.

The whole thing is being filmed for a documentary that will be aired at the end of 2017.

At the same time the death-masks of QMII and PH have already been made. - I actually thought such masks were made shortly after the person died, but at least here the Regent Couple have had them made will they are still alive and well. - That should of course give more "life" so to speak to their effigies.

I think this will be a documentary absolutely well worth watching!
