It wouldn't surprise me one bit. I've viewed his "retirement" more as a de facto divorce from the time it was first announced. That opinion has only strengthened by subsequent events.

PH at his best. It's clear where Frederik has his touch with children from.

A nice feel-good video of PH visiting the Prince Henrik School: VIDEO: Prins Henrik hyldet | BILLED-BLADET

The French ambassador was present as well, because many of the children are of mixed marriages or children of French ex-pats.

Dronning Margrethe til festligt 600-års jubilæum | BILLED-BLADET

Today QMII inaugurated a pilgrim-house near Maribo Cathedral. And afterwards attended a service at the cathedral.

Back in the 1400's QEI gave an estate to the Birgittinian Order (I think it's called), so that they could build a cloister-church there. After the Reformation the church became an ordinary church and eventually a cathedral.

I read a headline the other day saying that pilgrimages have become more popular in DK. And here we need FasterB to educate us.

Thanks, iceflower.

Perhaps someone finally shipped the teletubby outfit to Timbuktu - without a return address...

Say it isn't so Her teletubby look was catching on, I truly hoped it would set a new fashion trend finally. I am heart broken

The red coat looks fantastic on her.

A nice little happy-ending story from BB: Dronning Margrethes bedste ven forsvandt | BILLED-BLADET

Last week QMII's dachshund, Helike, vanished. Two days passed, still no dog.
It has happened before that a DRF-dog has eloped only to be run over by a car.

Then two guardsmen heard a dog whimper and they found Helike stuck in a badger-hole.
The dog was liberated and brought back to mother Margrethe, hungry and thirsty but otherwise unhurt.

Thank heavens it was rescued and reunited with its owner. That's the trouble with dachshunds. They find badgers irresistible!

Prince Henrik was one of the winners for its own bridge tournament, Prince Henrik's Grand Prix final, which took place in the Aller-House.

On May 28 Prince Henrik attended the opening of the exhibition "Henri Martin, poetic landscapes" at the Nivaagaards Malerisamling in Nivå. The French artist painted vibrant landscapes in a poetic symbolism style.

Another controversy is coming up.

Trods protester: Dronningen skal sælge Danmark i Tyrkiet

As you may recall M&F's visit to Saudi Arabia in particular caused quite a bit of controversy and still does for that matter. It dented the image of M&F, unfairly.
It doesn't help that the former Foreign Minister, Martin Lidegaard, in the former government has said that he knew nothing about the plans about sending M&F to Arabia. - That despite the serious newspaper Berlingske having revealed that meetings on very high civil-service level regarding M&F's taking part in the visit took place several times and they they discussed that there might be a controversy.
It is next to unthinkable that the Foreign Minister, the Minister for Trade and the Prime Minister were not informed. But politicians are politicians...

Anyway, later this year QMII will go on an official visit to Turkey, where she will naturally meet with President Erdogan.
Amazingly the Parliament in general think that's a great idea, despite the fact the Erdogan is perhaps not the most popular person in Europe right now and his politics and involvement in the Syrian mess is something no one appears to wish to talk about. That he seems intent on turning Turkey away from it's secular core values is another matter, not to mention him opressing journalists and critics, not only in Turkey but outside Turkey as well.
But in the holy name of export, it seems a great idea to embarrass QMII. And the politicians we have are unlikely to support QMII much against the criticism there will come.
I half hope QMII will go down with the "flu", but then they'll probably embarrass M&F instead.

Good grief!

- There have been loads of interesting articles, also in the more serious papers, about the DRF in the past couple of weeks.
I haven't written about here on TRF, partly because I felt burned out and partly because the TRF has changed IMO.
There does not appear to be that much interest among the TRF-readers for hard back-ground info any more. Which has made me wonder whether it is time to move board.
Pictures, clips and fashion is working great here on TRF. And that's fine and fun.
But summaries, translations and background info would perhaps be more of interest elsewhere.
