Eh, not yet.
Perhaps BB can tell us in their magazine coverage next week?

But I think QMII in general is delighted about most books she gets.

Indeed, a happy, happy day for QMII!

Notice the appropriate brooch, in the form of a (Viking-era) boss I think it's called.

Thanks, Iceflower.

Why is the Italian President accompanied by his daughter? Is he a widower?

Thanks Eya & Iceflower.

She presented the colours for two regiments, an HQ-regiment and an intelligence regiment.

DK has often contributed with an HQ for multinational missions. And the idea is to pick such a future HQ from this regiment.
The regiment will also provide supporting HQ specialist for Danish missions abroad.
HQ-members are today today much more specialized than beforehand. So depending on the mission additional specialists will be attache to a battalion deployed to say Estonia.

The same things goes for the intelligence regiment. Their job, is together with the Military Intelligence (which mainly gather information via listening devices, human sources and foreign intelligence organizations. However the specialist in this regiment, gather and analyze intelligence on a tactical level. That can be anything from using drones, to directing special forces, to providing language officers (intelligence officers who master the local language) for patrols and interrogation.

In contrast to say USA and Britain Danish regiments do not have a regimental colour and a national flag. The Danish colour is always a Dannebrog with regimental symbols.

QMII here hammer in the last and topmost nail in the colour, attaching Dannebrog to the pole. Then she present the colour to the commander in chief, usually a colonel.

When an old regimental colour is replaced, it will often be displayed in a place of pride at the regimental barracks.
Otherwise it must be disposed of in the exact same way you dispose of an ordinary Dannebrog:
You fold the flag neatly and place it on a clean fire.
There it will burn to ashes, having never ever touched the ground, since it was made.

The exhibition about Germany is based on this being the 30th anniversary of the fall of Die Maur - The Berlin Wall.
(I remember watching it live on Sky News - with disbelief!)

But it is also aimed at heightening Germanys profile (and popularity) in DK. Hence why the German Foreign Minister was present as well.

QMII recommended the exhibition warmly and urged people to come at see it. - She doesn't usually recommend something that eagerly IMO.

-----------------------

https://www.bt.dk/samfund/dronning-m...ns-universitet

Today QMII got caught up in a student-protest at Copenhagen University.
She was present there because of the annual celebration of the university. And while sitting there a student entered the rostrum and for three minutes scolded the management and expressed dissatisfaction with some ways the Humanitarian lines are being directed. All that on behalf of a number of other students. - I must confess I haven't heard about this protest before nor do I really understand what it is about.
Anyway, it seem directly inspired by an almost identical protest back in 1968. Where King Frederik (IIRC) was present as well.

Afterwards a representative for the protesting students expressed regret that QMII had been caught up in the protest, it was in no way aimed at her and they had not even been sure QMII would be there.

A representative for the management is quoted for saying that QMII reacted with "stoic calm."

The court has not yet returned for a comment on the episode.

It's about the faculty being cut so tight that multiple programmes are forced to be merged to avoid closing down altogether, teaching hours are down to the barest of minimum, a large number of classes are being cut and the remaining classes are overfilled (in hope that a certain percentage of students won't show up physically because otherwise there aren't seats enough for everyone), institute libraries are being closed down and to the best of my knowledge masters thesis defences have now also been cut across the entire faculty.

So definitely a relevant protest (a case that the media can't whine "krænkelseskultur!" at though and as such it doesn't gain as much (if any) traction in the press – which is probably the reason you haven't heard of it). And perhaps it's also very healthy for QMII to not exclusively see the state of an institution such as the University of Copenhagen portrayed through rose-coloured glasses.
