Christian must be a special grandson for the queen, because he is the future heir and the future king.
I think the queen is very close to all the grandchildren.

Very close to all her grandchildren?...That has never been my impression but I hope I am wrong.

Sorry, I was thinking in Danglish.

I can still see her explaining it. That Christian is special to her. - While still being fond of the other grandchildren (five at the time IIRC) Christian is special because he is a future heir.

Lovely to see them together. I hope we have more outings in the future.

Christian makes the Queen look like a dwarf. Btw..shouldn't he be walking behind the Queen?

So wonderful seeing QMII and Christian go together – and I'm sure QMII loved bringing Christian.

Since Henrik first retired and since passed, I've always thought it would've been neat if QMII had the oldest grandchildren accompany her on a tour to the Faroe Islands or Greenland, or just one of her summer cruises. She'd have some company and she'd get to spend time with her grandchildren while not having to straight up babysit them because of their age and independence. A pandemic sort of got in the way last year and now it's probably tricky making everyone's schedule fit but I maintain that would be a lovely experience for everyone involved.

That would be great. I would very much like to see that as well.
It would be a true bonding experience.
Anyway, just following QMII on the job will be beneficial for both QMII and grandchildren.

QMII has often admitted that she's not very good with small children, but now both Isabella and Christian are old enough to have a good talk with.

Weeell, I guess he should if the protocol and courtesy is to be followed strictly.
In this case I think it's merely down to a very familiar phenomenon with teenagers - they walk fast and take long strides without thinking about it, so grandparents have to half run to keep up.

Yes, and that's unusual.
Protocol dictates that that a foreign dignitary is met on an equal basis, so a Secretary of State wouldn't normally be met by both the Monarch and the Heir.

But.

There are two reasons for that:
A) The standard. It is a vital Danish interest to have a good relationship with any US administration and that is cultivated actively even before the new administrations takes over. - Hence the red carpet being rolled out here.

B) Greenland.
There are considerable resources in the Arctic that are becoming available due to global warming and there are the Arctic sea routes, two of them passing Greenland.
As such there is an increased race to develop the Arctic areas, but also an increased military presence.
From a US standpoint, there is no way USA will allow Greenland to fall under Russian or more likely Chinese control - one way or another.
China has tried to buy itself into Greenland, something that has been countered by Danish and now US investments in Greenland.
Danish military presence has long been increased in Greenland, now with an agreement that the US Coast Guard will from time to time visit Greenlandic ports to show the flag - and "assist" in various ways.
To the great annoyance of Russia, that has absolutely no interest in USA creeping - openly - closer to Russia and not least the sea route north of Siberia.
At the same time USA, Greenland, Norway, Canada, Russia - and China(!) is laying claim on the geographic North Pole.
That is to be settled in a few years and Greenland has a very big chance. For two reasons: The North Pole is located in the same geological plateau as Greenland - and Greenland (read Denmark) is small enough to be palatable for Russia and China. And Denmark is a close ally of USA, so USA finds that solution palatable as well.

In Greenland there is among shall we say the opinion elite there, a dream of independence. Where Greenland becomes an equal nation within a commonwealth consisting of Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Denmark and preferably with the Danish Monarch as head of state.
The problem is that with a population of 65.000 including Danes and other foreigners, Greenland, administratively, talent mass and economically is the size of an average Danish municipality.
Greenland cannot uphold and ensure it's own sovereignty. Greenland will have problems making ends meet economically. Not to mention education, healthcare and the multitude of other problems a sovereign state has to deal with.
Greenland hasn't got the money nor the people to do all these jobs.
Some in Greenland believe that by having such a crucial position they can bargain in equal terms with the greater powers, USA in particular. And play them against each other. I.e. Chinese versus US investments and agreements that would be favorable to Greenland.
- They can forget all about that. It's a dream. A mirage.

China can say: Well, we now control an X percentage of the Greenlandic economy. Here is what we want you to do...
Or USA moves in and turns Greenland into a protectorate.
Because no US administration will allow any foreign country except Denmark to have decisive influence in Greenland.
The Biden administration is simply saying politely, what president Trump said very bluntly: We want control over Greenland!

Now, Greenland has autonomy except in matters of justice, police, security and foreign policy - that is handled by Denmark.

So the US Secretary of State is going to Denmark, to negotiate "investments" in Greenland, with the Greenlandic government and the Danish government. - That will put pressure on the Danish government to invest more in Greenland, also militarily. And give the Greenlanders the appearance of having a say...
They don't. The fate of Greenland is decided in Copenhagen and Washington - mostly in Washington. - That began to dawn on some Greenlanders when former president Trump made his bid.

Reunion celebration on June 13th

It will be a festive day when Her Majesty the Queen and Their Royal Highnesses the Crown Prince and Prince Christian on 13 June 2021 take part in the official celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Reunification.
...


The Royal House's program on 13 June 2021

The official Reunion Celebration begins on the morning of 13 June 2021, where the Queen, Crown Prince and Prince Christian in a carriage will drive across the old border at Frederikshøj south of Kolding. The carriage ride will take place in the same place as Christian 10. on 10 July 1920 rode over the old border on the white horse Malgré Tout accompanied by Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Knud on horseback and Queen Alexandrine and Princess Thyra in the carriage. 101 years later, Christian 10.'s granddaughter, great-grandson and great-great-grandson will once again cross the old border, where an interpretation of the sport of honor from 1920 has been set up. At the event, the Queen gives a speech and inaugurates a sculpture.

Subsequently, the Queen, the Crown Prince and Prince Christian participate in a festive service in Haderslev Cathedral. Here, too, German Federal President HE Frank-Walter Steinmeier and wife Fr. Elke Büdenbender and Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Mr. Bo Tengberg participate.
In the middle of the day, the Queen visits the new reunification park at Folkehjem in Aabenraa. The Reunification Park is Aabenraa Municipality's new national park in front of the historic Folkehjem, which played an important role before - and after - the Reunification in 1920. In 1918, the Folkehjemmet formed the framework for the adoption of the Aabenraa resolution, which became crucial for the final Danish-German demarcation.

The Queen continues the day in Sønderborg, where the Queen, Germany's Presidential Couple and Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Mr. Bo Tengberg participates in a ceremony at Kongeskansen at Dybbøl Banke. After the event at Dybbøl Banke, a visit will be made to the German minority's new museum in Sønderborg, the Deutsches Museum Nordschleswig. Subsequently, the Queen watches a reunion show at Alsion in the late afternoon.

The reunion celebration ends on the Royal Ship Dannebrog in Sønderborg Harbor, where the Queen hosts a reception.*Subsequently, the Queen has invited the German Presidential Couple and Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Mr.*Bo Tengberg for dinner on the Royal Ship.

Interesting that QMII is going solo after the service in Haderslev Cathedral.

There is plenty of room for both Frederik and Christian to attend as well.
Perhaps they will go solo in as yet unpublished events? We can hope.

I'm also curious to see how well this will be covered by national TV.
The regional stations will of course go non stop.

"It is a very special horse-drawn carriage, which Her Majesty the Queen and Your Royal Highnesses the Crown Prince and Prince Christian will sit in tomorrow at 10.00, when the old border at Frederikshøj is crossed on the occasion of the official celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Reunification."

Live coverage: https://www.dr.dk/drtv/kanal/20875

The coverage will continue until around 14.25.

At 10.00 the DRF will cross the old border.

That's in 50 minutes after this is posted.

Billed Bladet will also show live, but there is no link yet.

--------------------

QMII, wearing a gigantic sunhat, Frederik in his navy full dress uniform and Christian in a blue suit have just left Dannebrog.
