Nice to see Princess Alexandra and her husband the Count at the Church Service.

Yes, it was nice to see them there indeed. Benedikte and Margrethe really resemble each other strongly!

Some trivia from QMII's stay at Gråsten, as reported in Billed Bladet #30, 2019.
Written by the esteemed Ulrik Ulriksen.

There really isn't much new!
QMII arrived at Gråsten and was received by the CP-family, who posed for a few shots, that were uploaded on the DRF account.
The CP-family left the next day.

A few days later Benedikte arrived together with Alexandra and her daughter, as well as her new husband Count Ahlefeldt. (I wonder if Benedikte stayed at Egeskov Castle.)
And they were indeed in the background, when QMII watched the changing of the guards at noon Friday.
As usual a lot of locals as well as tourists also watched.
The music corps played a number of tunes, at least one of which must have made QMII, as well as quite a few family members to the serving guardsmen smile. A song called: Åh, Marie, jeg vil hjem til dig - Oh Marie, I wanna go home to you. - A song about a lonely conscript, who miss his sweetheart and dream about her on the watch, ending up in the gaol.

As always QMII attends service in Gråsten palace church on Sundays.
As you may recall QMII made a new antependium, this Sunday a new chasuble worn by the priest was used for the first time. That is also made by QMII. And both the chasuble and the antependium replace the ones made by Queen Ingrid back in 1943.
The color of the lining is a nod to the color chosen by Queen Ingrid.
Making the chasuble QMII used a technique that hasn't been used in DK for 40 years. It's called petitpoint. - I'll leave it to people more in the know than me, to explain further.

QMII, with her family in the background, was the one who received the countless flowers during the ring rider procession. Our reporter noticed that QMII was a little reluctant when some of the large horses were a little unruly. But Benedikte who is much more well-versed in regards to horses stepped in and had a calming effect.

Here is this weeks issue of BB.
I have added a little about other royal families, because I was in the mood. I haven't noticed before that Ariane wear braces.

And here is Egeskov Castle:

And the song, I trust you understand and sympathize with the poor and hopeless conscript.

Lovely to see the three together indeed! Christina, Benedikte and Margrethe all share each other's elegance.

That's news to me - and most likely also to the three of them

Christina is the sister of king Carl Gustaf and a cousin of the Danish royals; it's (Queen) Anne Marie (of Greece/the Hellenes) who is Benedikte and Margrethe's younger sister.

But I agree, it's lovely to see Christina visit her Danish cousins.

That was a 10pm moment!

I'm not sure, but I think that Christina is the godmother of Benedikte's daughter Nathalie

Christina is also Joachim's godmother.

The summer stay at Grasten Castle is over, and while The Queen has had residence at the castle, the Majesty's staff has used some very special linen pieces from 1935.

That would be a wonderful holiday home as I could be wrong, but suspect the weather is much warmer there. At QM's age and general health, that would be a huge plus.

Why did I think it had been sold?

Probably because we have discussed it here on TRF. And personally I do think it will be sold, an appropriate number of years after QMII has passed away.
