And while there she will do her usual Christmas-shopping. Buying Christmas presents for her staff as well. And an English cake for Christmas Eve.
A legacy from either her nanny or Queen Ingrid. Can't remember off hand.

"This evening a mini band from the Pipes and Drums headed over to The Drapers Hall to entertain HRH Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and other invited guests.
Queen Margrethe is the Colonel in Chief of The Princess of Wales Royal Regiment (PWRR) and has been since 1997 to underline the Regiments link with the Royal House of Denmark since 1689."

The yearly TV-reviews of the DRF are coming up. And here is an anecdote told by minister in the previous government, Jacob Ellemann, who was riding a carriage together with QMII in Norther Zealand, near Fredensborg BTW. Here they had opened a new national park.
And in an attempt to say something, anything, the new minister Ellemann remarked how beautiful at had been to come ashore among beeches from Esrum Lake.
To that QMII remarked dryly: "They are oaks."

But goofing up that well ended up being a good icebreaker. Ellemann excused himself by saying that he as a new minister didn't know that much about trees in Denmark and they both agreed never to mention this again.

Ellemann BTW is more than likely to become Prime Minster at some point. So we will see him again.

Good story, mange tak By the way, Queen Margrethe is not the only one interested in Danish politicians, according to this story in the New York Times! https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/14/a...-shortage.html

This is amazing.

I have looked into the Drapers Company role in history which is fascinating. It must be an organisation close to Queen Margrethe and The Duchess of Gloucester's hearts - both having studied fabrics, fashion and costumes.

The interiors of the rooms are beautiful. Thank you for posting this.

We may have to start a new thread about QMII in general or a general biography thread, because a lot of anecdotes about her are going to trickle in from now until her birthday.

Here is a wonderful account by her very close friend Brigitta Hillingsø.
As you may recall the Hillingsø family are also close friends of M&F.

https://www.bt.dk/royale/dronningens...man-haandterer

Their friendship started almost 70 years ago when they were both ten years old.
King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid brought little Margrethe along to visit the Hillingsø home, the estate Juelsberg on the island of Funen.
Here it is: http://www.danskeherregaarde.dk/uplo...sberg_1986.jpg
It isn't exactly a cottage!

Birgitta Hillingsø (BH) did not look forward to the visit!
"Firstly she was a princess and secondly she was from Copenhagen. I wasn't happy about the situation. That's for sure. And I didn't quite know how to handle such a thing."

BH took Margrethe out to the greenhouse where she kept a large collection of toads.
"I showed her the largest and fattest of all my toads. And she was allowed to touch it and hold it.
If she hadn't liked the toads then I don't know what would have happened."

Even though BH is not the oldest of QMII's friends, she was the one who was selected to go to high school at Amalienborg with Margrethe. The two of them studied alone there. So BH moved in at Amalienborg.
"They treated me as a part of the family and you quickly got used to the King being there. He was very large, but he was also very, very kind. I was never afraid of him."

At some point the two girls finished a subject they weren't keen on and Margrethe celebrated by standing on her hands, when their teacher left the classroom for a while.
But then he came back...
"And what did he see? He saw the Princess with her skirt handing over her head, you could see her girdle, her stockings and everything.
She quickly got down again and quickly got out the door. But my, how we laughed."

BH says about QMII:
"She is funny and clever. Really funny. You don't think so when you see her, but she has a huge glimmer in the eye. She has a sense of humor.
She a natural person. I don't think she has changed. I think she has done a job well done."

BH clearly remember how nervous QMII was when she was to give her first New Year speech and even though QMII by now has a lot of experience in that respect, BH can tell:
"I do think you can tell that she is a bit nervous, when she is sitting there."

BH is the mother of M&F's very close friend, Ellen Hillingsø.

Thank you for sharing this Muhler. I’ve been a bit of a lurker this last year or so for various reasons but I always appreciate your posts. As a QM fan I had been hoping to get to Denmark for her 80th birthday celebrations but unfortunately my finances have ruled this out. Thank goodness we have the internet and forums like this!

This year, it is 100 years since Southern Jutland was reunited with Denmark following a referendum.
This year's national event will be marked by a series of events, and today the Queen Margrethe received Schleswig-Holstein's Prime Minister Daniel Günther and Mrs. Anke Günther in Christian IX's Mansion in Amalienborg.

Does anyone know the reason the cathedral has those strange benches where people face each other?
