Shame she smokes around the small kids but at least it was outside. No doubt the raining weather made her wish for a smoke.
The DM articles are always of,f it included this "Crown Prince Frederik is also reported to be a smoker, but keeps the habit out of the public eye"
I had read that Frederik himself has stated that he has quit smoking, along the time Christian was on his way. Plus I dont think I seen a picture of him smoking in the past 10 years.
And reading the comments on the DM always lowers my IQ a bit, so I try not to lol

And the "Margrethe smoking scandal" has reached all Danish media

EB
Billeder af rygende Margrethe går verden rundt – Ekstra Bladet

BT
Rygende dronning Margrethe vækker opsigt i udlandet: 'Ryger i selskab med børnene' - Royale | www.bt.dk

TV2
Udenlandske medier forarget over rygende Margrethe | Underholdning

Sometimes I get so happy by reading the Danish media, if this can be the top news we really live in a good and safe country

hmmm its seems the Danish articles are just reporting that some outside media is criticizing the Queen for smoking; but they themselves are not really criticizing the queen.

and from the poll so far, its seems the majority do not mind the Queen smoking, maybe just not near the children

"Is it okay to Queen smoking near the grandkids?
Of course. It is her choice.
55.71%

It's fine that she smokes, but she should not do it publicly.
6.87%

She can smoke all she will - it should just not be in proximity of children
26.12%

No. She is a role model and should not at all smoke.
11.3%"

That's because any professional opinionist who dare to say QMII is wrong to smoke, can expect a barrage of "mind your own business messages" in return.
I have only smoked once in my entire life but I think it's great the QMII is not afraid to show that she is a smoker and that she doesn't give a hoot.

I think its stubborness of age. She has smoked all her life, why stop now. Everybody knows that she not a good role model, especially around children but it wont change.

In Germany we have our former chancellor Helmut Schmidt, now around 90 years of age, who smokes everywhere he goes incl tv-interviews, everybody thinks its awful but at this age, its his business and he wont change his mind anymore. People think, just let him be, probably the same sentiment with Margrethe.

Smoking in public by high profile individuals who depend on public opinion will vanish with the Margrete generation. Its not politically correct any longer and gives a very wrong signal.

It might just be me but I really don't think I can see the problem They were outside and it's not like she was actively blowing smoke in their faces. I've grown up with a mum who's a smoker, she's only ever smoked outside though and it hasn't hurt anyone but her own lungs (and I'm a swimmer so I'd know for sure if it had affected me ). I guess what I'm trying to say is – if it had bothered Mary and Frederik, I'm sure they would have either politely asked her if she could wait a little or simply kept the children at a distance from her. I don't understand this fuss

I mostly agree but I doubt she just smokes outside and second hand smoke is a very real issue. Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't one of the children have asthma? That can't be heathy for them.

I believe its Joachim's son Henrik who has asthma. not sure if Felix too.
Sadly we have seen Joachim smoke near his sons, and I think Marie smokes too.
but then of course many kids have asthma and neither parents smokes

True but it can't be making the breathing any easier. The smoke stays on your clothes and hair also remember.


Oh well. They know risks and don't care. It's on them.

I was about to write exactly the same thing. It is a perfectly normal activity for Queen Margrethe to do whether indoors, outdoors, with people or alone - it's nothing new and far less concerning than other pollutants everyone seems happy to ignore.

What no outrage from PETA and animal lovers?

Queen Margrethe drops her cigarette ashes on the dogs.

I pretty much agree. But the media making 'a scandal' about Margrethe smoking a cigarette near the children. No, she is not a good example about that, but it isn't more worse.
But again, when it's summer vacation the media need to find something to write about

maybe they should snoop around on internet forums, sometimes we posters invent more spectacular stories than the gossip press

The court has today announced that the annual photo shoot at Gråsten, will take place Friday 15. July. At 11.30.

There is no mentioning of who will be present.

I think we can be sure to expect QMII and M&F, probably also Benedikte. Everybody else must be considered a maybe IMO.

Nice. Love this tradition that the Queen has continued. Hope Joachim and family make it this year too.

Do we know when the horse riding parade is?
