Perhaps that's the theme of this particular room?

I can imagine there being an English room and a Chinese room as well.

I'd say that the full scale portrait of Nicolai II is a dead giveaway to the rooms name.

Edit - Sorry for that bitchy comment. I shouldn't have posted before I'd had my first cup of coffee

I seem to remember from tv that this was The Queen and her husband's private dining room with the TV room just next door.

No worries I phrased it wrong myself .

What I meant was had it a connection to the Romanovs that perhaps one of them had stayed in that room.

It makes sense to have a "Russian bedroom" in a palace that belongs to the family of the Russian empress Dagmar/Maria Feodorovna - Nicholas II. was a grandson of Christian IX. of Denmark. Dagmar of denmark often returned to her home country before she took up permanent residence near Copenhagen and died there in 1928.

From: https://www.homeforexchange.com/list...emperors-villa


History of the Emperor's Villa at Fredensborg
In 1885 Tzar Alexander III announced that he would buy a house in Fredensborg. His wife Maria Fjodorovnas (Dagmar to the Danes) parents King Christian the 9th & Queen Louise lived at the castle in Fredensborg. The russian imperial family would visit almost every summer and eventually they bought a house of their own. They rebuild the house for several years, turned it in to what you get today. They called it their "miniature Gatchina". In 1892, Alexander gave Dagmar a Farbegé-egg with a picture of their new home.
Their son (the last tzar) Nikolai II carved his name in one of the windows in the house. The glass is still there.
Today it's called the Emperor's Villa.
In 1894 Alexander died, leaving the house uninhabited until, their daughter Granddutchess Olga sold the house in 1928.



So pre-1885, the Russian Imperial Couple used to stay at Fredensborg Castle with the empress' parents, so I guess they then slept in the "Russian bedroom".

Let's have a look at the inside of Fredensborg, based on an article in Billed Bladet #29, 2019.
Written by Trine Larsen.

The whole article is based on a new book about Fredenborg.
It's called: Fredenborg Slot.
The author is J Henriette Linnemann.
She covers not only the history of Fredensborg since 1722, but also the rooms.
The furnishing, decorations, the paintings, who was behind the decor and what the various rooms a used for.
The 408 page hardcover book is published by Lindhart and Ringhof. (Who is behind a number of other books about the DRF.)
You can read more here, should you be interested in additional details: https://www.bog-ide.dk/produkt/19852...edensborg-slot


But let us look at what is written in that book, based on photo by photo in the BB article.
https://app.box.com/s/7mw4gwhsen5jjl0uturbal1222kt3g5f
QMII's office.
She is using a rooco-bureau as desk and underneath is a dog-basket.
QMII says: "I'm not an orderly person, so I shall not use a room long, before you can tell I've been here."

https://app.box.com/s/jonmerod4kmwx661mfym9sbmgf6y8hwp
This is the Yellow Salon looking towards the Garden Hall.
Here Thomas Kluge's painting of the DRF has found a place.

https://app.box.com/s/qj51khbao6bcfbvcnz3hs24pkjajnrzr
Top:
PH's office. On the couch is a pillow with the handprints of Vincent and Josephine. From 2015, as far as I can tell.
The sausage shaped pillows, complete with monogram, are "invented" by PH. They are made from old ties. - I could easily think of a number of royal men who could benefit from wearing a tie or two from these pillows.

Bottom:
QMII's office.
When QMII took over the panels where white, but they have now been restored to the original color, albeit in a stronger hue than the original a little more subdued hue.
QMII calls her office: "A cozy box."

https://app.box.com/s/31mehxvq0pdlulp32bjkhnaq87cq9f3e
PH's office than has been kept as it was, while he was still around. - The BB article does not omit to point out a couple of BB-publications on the table...

https://app.box.com/s/o7zrqsz18lp315drrgiqujenu97ns3un
Large photo:
This is the small baroque dining room. Previously it was here Frederik and Joachim dined.
Both when they moved away from home, the room was in 2005-2006 restored to it's original look. And here the Regent Couple used to have lunch.
And today this is where QMII have lunch with her LiW and adjutants, who are on watch that day.

Small photo:
The spectacular garden-hall is as original. Frederik IX enjoyed sitting here enjoying the room, from which there is a great view over the park, all the way down to the lake at the far end.
QMII is also fond of sitting there.

A riding area has been established at Fredensborg Palace.
Here a few horses will stay over the summer, for use by members of the DRF - i.e Mary, Bella and Josephine in particular.
The area is located right in front of Kancellihuset, where M&F sometimes stay and used to live.

It also blooms in the garden at Fredensborg Castle, where Her Majesty the Queen's dog Tilia has found a spot under the spring sun. ⁣

"From Friday, April 24, 2020, the Crown Prince Couple and their four children will be taking up residence in the Chancellory House at Fredensborg Palace, where their Royal Highnesses will be staying in the coming months."

"During the past 10 years, the Crown Prince family has lived in Fredensborg regularly for shorter periods, but it has long been the family's desire to stay in the Chancellory house for extended periods at a time."

There are horses again at Fredensborg.
https://www.instagram.com/p/B_45z3Jg...ource=ig_embed

When the palace was build back in 1720 it came with stables and a riding ring as horses were not only for exercise but also transport and hunting.
Now a part of the stables have been reestablished as well as the riding ring.

Back then it was a bit to the side in the palace complex, as Kancillihuset was not a private residence for members of the DRF back then, but for senior staff members.

The horse seen ridden here is a (Czech) kladruber. That horse and it's four-legged colleagues are used to pull some of the grandest of the DRF carriages. And the horse is used to be ridden, because there is no driver in these carriages.

Usually the work horses of the DRF are at home at Christiansborg, but I'm sure they will love the nature around Fredensborg. It's more quiet and less smelly.
There is also room for detachments of the Guards Hussars to have their horses there as well.
Because the stables at Fredensborg are not to be a permanent home for the horses. Basically merely a place to stay the night, rather than being driven for up to a couple of hours home to their stables.

The horse Mary owns and rides is IIRC at home in the barracks of the Guards Hussars, but that's about an hours drive from Copenhagen. So I guess her horse will find a more or less permanent home at Fredensborg as well, where she can ride it regularly, at least during the summer.
Because Mary's horse is not a cavalry horse. Cavalry horses are ridden and trained differently - or perhaps more correctly the horses train their conscript riders...
The cavalry horses are used to riding in formation, and know the drill and their place in the formation. They also know and react to the signals from the trumpeter (not bugler, that's US cavalry and some dragoon regiments) something their silly riders can't always figure out.

I also imagine they will invest in a horse for Isabella, if she is a dedicated rider.

The tabloid Ekstra Bladet has gained access to the minutes at meetings regarding the new riding ring at Fredensborg. The angling of the article is negative, so I have applied the BS filter.

The ring and the renovation has been partly funded by the Mærsk Foundation.
The purpose of the rings was, as I wrote in the previous post to provide stabling for horses from the Guards Hussars and the Royal Stables, when the royal road show takes place at Fredensborg. Usually for the horses to stay the night and get acclimatized rather than being driven back and forth in trailers.
Outside that the ring is at the disposal of the DRF. That means the CP-family, because QMII don't ride and J&M are in France and have shown very little interest in riding.

The minutes are from two meetings with Mary and Kultur- og Slotsstyrelsen = the agency in charge of preserving and maintaining among other things the royal palaces - they are owned by the state.
It is clearly Mary who is in charge. She is the one who has outlined the details regarding the stables, like lamps. And a friend of the CP-family, who is one of DK leading equestrians was asked for advise in regards to riding ring itself.

QMII is kept informed.

It will be the DRF who will pay for the daily costs of the riding ring.

It was also discussed whether and how the ring could be shielded from prying eyes, when the family is riding. (Presumably referring to the children having a private life while riding, without being photographed by tourists.)

If they are worried about prying eyes it seems an odd place to put the riding ring as isn't it right by the public front of the Palace? Nice to be able to have a non-profit pick up the bill for your riding ring IMO, even if it does mean sharing it with the Royal guards now and then.
