Yes, PH is indeed having a merry time in Aarhus.
Today he went to circus Arena, which is located just down the road to Marselisborg, on the beach. Prins Henrik i Cirkus Arena: Det er meget livligt | BILLED-BLADET

The weather is lousy this Easter! They even predict snow, hail and sleet in some places tomorrow!
I looked at the weather forecast, there will be showers tomorrow (with all sorts of things in it!) but with just a bit of luck the weather should stay dry at noon, when QMII and the family appears on the terrace.
The temperature will be some 5-10 degrees C (41-50 F), so expect the DRF will wear coats and wind-breakers.

I guess it's the cold April weather we are faced with in many European countries since a couple of days. And it's an efficient protection against influenza when you have to shake as many hands as he has to In the following gallery of yesterday's event you can see him with and without them

It's been a pretty cold Easter this year. This night the temperature went down below freezing, so it's a sensible precaution for an elderly gentleman.

Thanks, Iceflower

The event PH attended is a part of Aarhus being the European Cultural Capital 2017. - The aim here is to promote the rest of east and central Jutland as well, now that tourists arrive and there is added focus.
In this case in the form of a kind of gastronomical path to various dining places and specialties that foreign (and domestic for that matter) visitors otherwise never would have noticed let alone visited.
There are a number of surprisingly good inns and restaurants dotted all over Jutland.

Yesterday, April 19, Queen Margrethe presented the "Queen Margrethe II's Science Prize" to materials crystallography professor Bo Brummerstedt Iversen from the Aarhus University. Since 2015 the award is awarded once a year to a researcher under 50 years.

Prince Henrik attended the opening of the exhibition "The Eye in the Mask" at the Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum in Herning yesterday afternoon, April 20.

The exhibition consists of a collection of ethnographic masks and mask motifs loaned by Prince Henrik and it shows works by Carl-Henning Pedersen, Asger Jorn and Ernest Mancoba.

Prins Henrik udtaler sig om sit skrantende helbred: 'Jeg mister balancen indimellem' | BT Royale - www.bt.dk

At a recent event in Aarhus PH was observed having to hold on tight to the rostrum when he was to give a little speech.
He has also been observed several times having to rely on his adjutant or security for balance.

At the event PH said: "Sorry for holding on to the microphone but once in a while I loose the balance. It's not because I eat too much".

In an interview in 2015 he said: "I think I'm well. I'm tired and get tired more quickly due to my age. 81 is a ripe age. But apart from that I try experience as much as I can".

QMII then interjected: "I think your energy is very well, if you ask me".

- I'm in no doubt he's getting more frail as a result of his age, but it's also my impression that he is a little fond of pointing out how old and frail he is. He started that some 8-10 years ago. - It's after all nice when people feel sorry for you, right?

Thank you, Iceflower

I see QMII is very much her son's mother...
Or perhaps she parked her hands in her pockets to suppress an urge to jump in and start digging herself.

It's good she has more time to visit archeological digs. Thanks to a virtual army of amateur archeologists armed with affordable metal detectors, the finds are pouring up from the ground with one hoard after the being found in these years.

- Wonder how they got her dragged away from the site?
Perhaps her adjutant walked backwards towards the car holding a Thor's hammer in gold in front of her?

I love your sense of humor Muhler!

It really is refreshing to see someone who has a very full and busy life being a monarch being able to participate in things that are truly of interest to her personally. I bet digging in the ruins and piecing together ancient history would have been a big part of her life and perhaps even a career if her destiny had been different.

I love her boots. They're totally and uniquely "Queen Daisy" boots.

I was about to say I love her wellies (which for those of you who don't know is a slang word for wellington boots in the UK - don't know if anywhere else uses that word?)

Love the image Muhler has now conjured up in my mind of the Queen being tempted by her adjutant and a Thor's hammer in gold, lol!

A bright, cheery way of dressing is something I very much associate with Queen Margrethe. My sis in Chicago just bought a pair of shoes and sent me a picture of them. First thing I said was "those look like shoes Queen Daisy would wear". Didn't surprise me one bit as Queen Margrethe is her very favorite queen and admires her to the moon and back.

Anyone who loves life and lives it happily is an inspiration to us all in my book.
