QMII has expressed her horror and expressed her sympathy with the victims as well as extending her condolences in a message to the German president, on occasion of the terror incident in Hanau yesterday.

The traditional torchlight procession in the inner Palace Courtyard of Fredensborg Palace that was scheduled for March 12 has been cancelled.

Usually Queen Margrethe is welcomed by Fredensborg's citizens and scouts to Fredensborg, but today the Palace announced that the Municipality of Fredensborg together with the Royal House have decided to cancel the event for reasons of safety - mass gatherings are considered to be too dangerous due to the possible spread of the Corona virus.

Well, that's pretty much it, isn't it?

If the situation hasn't improved by 16th April the traditional balcony appearance at Amalienborg is bound to be cancelled as well. As way more than 1.000 people are expected to gather there.
Wonder how they will handle that one? A TV-greeting? (Sounds tame though.) Postponing all the festivities till next year?

The court has announced that QMII upon coming back from Norway has taken up residence at Fredensborg, where she intends to stay. - Basically a self-imposed quarantine.

She is obviouslt acting out of an abundance of caution. Where she leads a lot of Dane's will follow even with reluctance.

She is one smart cookie and knows in this time of national emergency her place is in Denmark being seen to lead her people per the instructions of the experts.

I concur with Marg.
We all have to live with disappointments during this crisis.
BTW Marg I hope Jacinda Arderns travel restrictions work for NZ.

QMII gave a short speech, which will probably be available in English shortly.

It was a full support of the government and the health authorities and cracking the whip a little: Do what is being told, people will die, if you don't!
She mentioned that not all people seems to have understood the seriousness, like still going ahead celebrating round birthdays. (QMII has as you know cancelled hers.)

She used a phrase which was good: "We must stand together, by keeping a distance to each other."

- It is sensational that a Danish Monarch speaks to the nation outside the New Year address.

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

One of the problems the authorities is facing is that the weather, for once, is good, so people milled out into parks and public places, without being able to maintain a proper distance during the weekend.

ADDED: A photo from a private home of people watching QMII's speech:
https://images.scribblelive.com/2020...7c9ede228e.jpg

Such an extraordinary speech has not been held by a Danish Monarch since 1945.

Normally QMII moves her residence to Marselisborg in Aarhus, during Easter, but due to the Corona crisis, she has decided to remain at Fredensborg.

- A sound precaution. When QMII moves residence, a number of people are on the move as well. From drivers, to PET officers to guardsmen.

And at present a number of guardsmen from the Guards Battalion of the Royal Lifeguards Regiment are in quarantine at their barracks in Høvelte Barracks.

I am surprised that the Queen chose to describe the actions of some of her subjects as "thoughtless" and "inconsiderate".

I'm not surprised at all. The Queen has previously never shied away from taking the Danes by the ears if they misbehave. This was very much Mutti Margrethe speaking. She's also right - the actions of those not adhering to government guidelines is endangering the health and even the lives of others. I might have chosen more colourful words myself to express my feelings about those people.

That is really an excellent address. It hits all the important points: it admonishes those who aren't taking it seriously, offers sympathy and encouragement, and thanks those who are doing the hard work of dealing with the crisis. It's exactly what is needed from QMII right now.

Thank you for the clarification! I was unfamiliar with the history of the Queen's speeches.
Out of curiosity, what were her most memorable "Mutti Margrethe" remarks previous to this?

An all time high number watched QMII address the Danes on occasion of Corona, 3.3 million out of a population of 5.8 million.

In comparison 2.1 watched QMII's last New Year speech. A viewer rating most can only dream about.

You really can't underestimate the place a royal family holds in the heart of its people. When SHTF in as dire and devastating a way as the arrival of Covid-19 they are the glue.

People's entire lives are disrupted, even destroyed, jobs are lost and, in many cases, absolutely no money is coming in and fear rules the hearts and minds of the people. Their lives have been shattered and nobody has a clue what the "new nornal" will be.

This is when a connection showing mlyour monarch and royal family going about the business of living in a calm and confident manner, with grace and kindness speaks even louder than any words. They act as an anchor speaking praise or demanding the government do better. They praise those on the frontline, having spent their lives visiting frontlines caused by fire, flood and earthquake. Now we add Covid-19 and see they or their families are in as much danger as everybody else! And they help lead the way, cool, cam and collrcted
