Oh that was wonderful. And I thank you for taking the time. The Queen looked very frail to me in the photos I saw of her. Henrik's death has hit her hard. But from this interview she seems still very strong in the mind and that will keep her going well into the future.
I really do hope and expect the Chateau to remain with the family to share. No reason why it can't pass from generation to generation.

It sounds as if no decision has been made for sure about who will get it in the future, maybe there is a way it could be owned, or at least used, by both of Henrik's sons.

Queen Margrethe looked great this evening!

The first of the following links contains a short video of her arrival:

The commercial Kanal 5, will show a six episodes docu about conscripts in the Royal Lifeguard Regiment, and as an extra scoop QMII will add a few comments about this regiment that for almost 400 years has been so closely affiliated with the DRF in each of the episodes.
https://www.bt.dk/kendte/dronningen-...nyt-tv-program

The docu will follow the recruits from day one, until they are eventually dismissed from service. Some of them will stand guard at the royal palaces.
(And a little note that I picked up yesterday: The rate of female conscripts have gone up to 17 % from 7 % ten years ago. Women can in contrast to men volunteer for conscription. That is a right they have and to the delight of the military women seem to have embraced that in ever greater numbers. There are very few considerations made. Women will have to share the same quarters and showers as the men. However, female conscripts can in contrast to men, sign out anytime they want. - Because it is a right for them to serve, not a duty.)

But back to QMII, she is in this article quoted for saying:
"They have to do some things, that other soldiers don't need to learn. (Much more spit and polish.) They don't have much time for it and at the same time they must master the soldierly skills, otherwise there is no point in it."
She is also quoting the favorite sergeant-mantra, so well known to recruits here in DK:
"You can do twice as much as you yourself think you can and ten times as much as your mother think you can."

In the video segment, QMII starts by telling about Frederik's time as a recruit in the regiment. - Which was totally different to what he was used to, even though he had been around guardsmen all his life. - And all of a sudden he was in it himself!"

The Palace announced the sad news that Queen Margrethe's oldest dachshund Heike has died today. Heike had been the Queen's dog since 2006 and has now been put to sleep after a short stay at an animal hospital.

The shared photo of Margrethe with Helike was taken at Gråsten Castle in August. Now Queen Margrethe still owns two dogs: 1-year-old Nelly and Prince Henrik's dog Tilia.

Rest in peace Heike.
Margrethe seems to love her daschunds a lot and losing a pet is always hard especially when they're like members of the family.

I echo everything you said H.P. it's not hard to tell this family love their dogs. The Queens feelings might be a bit raw at the moment as she remembers all the fun times with Heike and Henrick together.

Nor have I.

Could it be the French military attache? In gala?
He is not an adjutant.
The red lapels and the red stripes on his pants suggest a general-staff officer.

The Guards Hussars were ready when France's new ambassador, Caroline Ferrari, was picked up at Fredensborg station to be driven into Fredensborg Castle, where she is received by H.M. Queen Margrethe.

The Israeli first lady couldn't find time in her schedule to dress up just a little more?

I have rarely seen an official representative of a country looking more sloppy at an audience!

Nechama Rivlin suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and usually carries a portable oxygen tank with her so I would always give her a pass on how she dresses. The fact that she is there with her husband is something.

Thank you, Librarian Daisy.
In that case I retract my harsh words and cut her some slack.

I'll leave my post though, lest others should think like me.

The presidential couple is in Denmark on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Danish Jews flight to Sweden. Tomorrow, H.K.H. The Crown Prince, together with the President, participates in a memorial in the Synagogue in Copenhagen.
