BB has hit the streets and unsurprisingly there is a good deal of coverage of the Grand New Year Court and the court for the diplomats.
Not much new, but a little detail: The Iranian ambassador and his wife were the only one who did not offer his hand to the DRF, instead he bowed slightly.
At least he did not insult QMII and Mary by shaking Frederik's hand only. - IMO when in Rome...
It was the ambassador for the Ivory Coast who gave the speech on behalf of the diplomats as the doyenne.
Anyway, right after having delivered her New Year speech live at 18.00 QMII changed (I often suspect PH takes a lot more time figuring out what he is to wear...
) and the Regent Couple went to a New Year party with some of their close friends.
This year the host was Bent Fabricius Bjerre and the theme this year was Olsen Banden (banden = the gang). Unquestionably the most beloved movie-criminals in Danish history.
They have a considerable fan-base in Germany as well.
QMII dressed up as the leading lady in the series, Yvonne. Who was known for always wearing large hats and very
colorful outfits (even for the 70's!!). Yvonne also used to wear daisies as earrings. - Very appropriate.
I would have loved to see QMII's outfit, but alas, she wore a long coat and her hat in a bag.
But then we have PH, who showed up as the enforcer of the series. In DK named Bøffen = the Beef. In Germany he is better known as Dumme Schwein.
PH nailed it! They've got the same body-build, even though PH may not be able to down a beer in less than ten seconds.
PH also had some accessories in the shape of a large wrench, used in the movies to whack members of the Olsen Gang on the head and a beer in the other hand. A special beer, where the label depicted the gang. In fact he brought a case of such beers.
Anyway, see for yourselves here: BB #01, 2017
And here are the characters the Regent Couple based their costumes on.
And then Yvonne
It is claimed Yvonne's jewellery and hats were inspired by QMII, who back then was well-known for her many and large hats. In that way the circle is complete.
