As every year Queen Margrethe was present at the Handcraft Association's medal ceremony at Copenhagen's City Hally yesterday, May 16.

This year author Jussi Adler-Olsen was among the recipients.

Thanks, Iceflower

And today QMII went to Aarhus University to attend an event about The Reformation and the Danish Society: Dronning Margrethe åbnede konference i Aarhus | BILLED-BLADET

As you can tell from QMII's big smile, this is no doubt something she will have looked forward to attending! - It's evening now, wonder if they have persuaded her to leave by now? I imagine they carried her out to the car while she was still clinging to her chair, kicking and screaming.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #22, 2017.
Written by Trine Larsen.

QMII & PH can celebrate their golden anniversary on the 10th June. But as far as BB has been able to find out, there will no celebrations.
Not even their circle of friends seems to have been invited to anything.

So BB speculate that Dannebrog might be used for a very private celebration. Perhaps not even including the whole family and perhaps only a few and very close friends.
BB seems to rule out that there will be family gettogether at Chateau Cayx.

- However, there might still be a morning-wake-up by friends and family at Fredensborg I imagine. And perhaps a kind of surprise party?
Anyway, here is a video of a typical golden anniversary morning ritual:
As you can tell, every bird chirps with its own beak...


And back in 1992:

thanks. From the DRF calendar, Frederik is listed as regent from June 8-11. So what ever the Queen has planned, will be abroad

I do hope we get some family photos

For the time being this must belong here: KGL. GULDBRYLLUP: Margrethe og Henrik stikker til søs | BILLED-BLADET

The court has announced that the Regent Couple will celebrate their Golden Anniversary on the 10th June in private aboard Dannebrog.
Dannebrog will be at sea on that day.

So BB's "source" was right.

There is no mentioning of other members of the DRF.

I'm very glad to read that Queen Daisy and prince Henrik are going to mark this occasion together, albeit privately. Fifty years of marriage is a pretty big milestone in anyone's book and it would have been very sad IMO if nothing had been done to commemorate this occasion. I hope they have a nice cruise around on the yacht (no rain or storms) and come back refreshed.

Agree.
And when you are well into your 70's and 80's the prospect of a lot of commotion and partying may not be that attractive anymore.
Next year when Frederik turns 50 it'll no doubt be celebrated big time!

I predict M&F and children will go on the summer cruise with Dannebrog next year, and be celebrated in various places in the country. And perhaps go to Greenland for one of the normally two cruises.

BB writes in their magazine issue this week, that the Regent Couple will celebrate their golden anniversary aboard Dannebrog, just the two of them. - And the 34 man crew...
They will be at sea on the day.

When they got married 50 years ago they started their honeymoon aboard Dannebrog, so this must be a kind of repeat.

However, the TV networks are going to mark the day!
DR1 (which you should be able to watch outside DK) wil "transmit live" from the Regent Couple's wedding for several hours from 15.00.
The idea is ti use achive material and then treat it as if it is a live-event, with running commentaries and clips from the past (i.e. engagement and QMII's and Henri Montpezant's life and so on).

So we can follow their wedding from princess Margrethe riding in a coach to the church, the wedding ceremony, leaving the church, balcony scene, party and so on. As far as possible from the archive material.

And on a completely different note.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #23, 2017.
Written by Luise Marie Bekker.

There are two major amusements parks in Copenhagen. One is the more internationally well-known and posh, not to say expensive, Tivoli in downtown Copenhagen.
And there is the equally old but more folksy Bakken.
A part of Bakken is Bakkens Hvile, a kind of inn, with singing-girls. They used to be "women of the town" who could sing more or less lewd songs reasonably tolerable. Not that it mattered much, because the audience consisted almost exclusively of men (ladies with any self-respect at all did not venture in there!) who were pretty intoxicated.
So the mood tended to be... merry... and the comments shouted from the audience reflected the lewdness of the songs! But the singing-girls were perfectly able to fend for themselves, if need be using expressions that would make even the most hardened sailor blush.

Nowadays the singing-girls are professional singers who dress up as tarts and sing songs that are full of innuendos, without being dirty. The audience is expected to hoot and whistle and stuff money down the garters of the singing girls. And today it is a place ladies don't mind being seen.

Anyway, together with some friends PH donned his green schlager-singer suit and went to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the place.
As always PH, who has a very keen understanding for Danish innuendos, was cracking up, while the girls winked at him and sang to him.

PH was presented with two roses and in return he presented two bottles of his own wine to the lead singer with a note saying: "Congratulations and thank you for all the Danish ballads in the French tradition. A warm greeting from a fan - a retiree. Prince Henrik".

It is also tradition that some of the guests buy a round to all in the densely packed hall, PH did so too.

Afterwards the leading singer, Dot Wessman, said: "It's huge that Prince Henrik is coming to show the love he has for Bakkens Hvile. And it's fun that he took up the premise, that you buy a round. He's a faithful guest and a very sweet and likable person".

Until recently the entire Wedding (as a lot of other royal Coverage like the Wedding of Joachim and Alexandra, the fuenral of Queen Ingrid etc). was in the Archiv of their Homepage. But it seems they removed it now as i can't find it anymore.

"On the occasion of H.M. Queen and H.K.H. Prince Henrik's wedding anniversary on June 10, 2017, the VILLUM FUND and VELUX FUND decided in April 2016 to launch a research-based publication on Danish-French artistic cooperation in the Danish absolutism era.
The queen and Prince Henrik received the finished book of work on Amalienborg on Tuesday 6 June 2017"

Today the Regen Couple have been married for 50 years and there are quite a few articles about them in the papers today.
Here are a number of quotes from QMII about being married.
Dronningen om ægteskab: Klumper i grøden, sammen for altid og nej til skilsmisse - Indland

"There can be little lumps in the porridge sometimes, but you get through them together.
Of course there were lots of differences, which we discovered over time, thing which each of us considered - that's just how you do it - and where the other one didn't considered that way to do it at all. But that must be considered lumps in the porridge, because yes, the solidity between us is strong".

"We had both grown up in a home, where it was a matter of course that you stayed together and that things had to work out, also when it wasn't always easy. So that I think was fundamental for both of us - that you married for life and married to be together. And there can be times where everything overall is simple and times where it's less than easy".

To the question: Is Your marriage also an intellectual partnership?
QMII: "Yes, it sure is. It has been beneficial to me. There is always something exciting to talk about. We've never been bored together".

"Being married is not just a great joy and a happiness that fills you. It's also a task for life. A piece of work - but a task, which you are not alone in carrying out. You are two to create - you are two to suffer - you are two to cope - you are two to tolerate and to carry through. Two? I usually say - that you are three: You, me and us! That's the symphony of three, which must grow strong through a marriage".

- QMII is a very wise lady, but her flowery expressions sure can be a challenge to translate!

If you would like to follow their wedding "live" (albeit with a 50 year delay) look here, in four hours after this was posted: https://www.dr.dk/tv/live/dr1
