One thing that comes to mind when seeing such wonderful pictures of the Danish royal family is that the perfect caption for any gallery of this family should bear the simple title of "Happy and Glorious". Perhaps its stems from the Grand Matriarch of the family who has such a refreshing zest for life and everything around her so much that its contagious.

I especially loved the picture of the dance. So royal and so romantic and so warm between a mother and her son.

Yes, QMII does seem pretty happy these days. Or perhaps more like she's no longer carrying a burden/responsibility anymore. - Certainly not alone.
Her gait is lighter, so to speak.

It's rainy, windy and cold here in DK today, so that's probably why BB has compiled this gallery of royals (mainly DRF) in the rain: SE BILLEDERNE: Kongelige i regnvejr | BILLED-BLADET

CAUTION: Sensitive persons may wish to skip this gallery as QMII is depicted in her favorite raincoat!

I found this nice little photo I can't recall having seen before: http://www.danmarksbilleder.dk/03.jpg
I doubt M&F's noses were actually touching though. - Don't know what it is with women and noses. My wife early on developed the habit of putting her finger on my nose, when she want's to end a discussion. Invariably with her (naturally) being in the right...

Who can blame Mary if she went in closer to talk to Frederik
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...e8bca44ed5.jpg

It was when they opened the Danish Pavilion in Rio during the 2016 Olympics.
We also got this cute image of the Brazilian Flag also getting close to Frederik

A new portrait of Prince Philip has been released to mark his retirement. In it, he is wearing the Order of the Elephant, which is a nice nod to his Danish ancestry. You can see it at royalcentral.co.uk

In the summer of 1945 an American war-photographer, Lee Miller, went to the liberated Denmark for a month and here she took a lot of photos. Also of members of the DRF, including a little Princess Margrethe.

Unfortunately Lee Miller was so severely affected by what she had seen during the war (PTSD was not a diagnosis then) that 60.000 negatives by her were kept in a box in her attic.
They were only found after her death in 1977.

Now around 100 of these photos, from her stay in DK, are being exhibited.

A photo from 1954, where Princesses Margrethe, Benedikte and Anne-Marie were bridesmaids at their governess, Mary North's, wedding.
The ID of the two other girls is unknown.

A second photo, here only with the three Princesses and their governess: https://www.billedbladet.dk/sites/bi...sh-83054_0.jpg

- The governess looks intelligent, but stern to me.
In regards to QMII's mastery of English and her fondness for certain English traditions, that I think can be shared equally between Queen Ingrid and this lady here.

I'll leave it to the mods to decide whether this site should be added to the collection of links.
Per Brunsgård fra Tim ved Ringkøbing DK

It's a site by an amateur photographer named Per Brunsgaard, who for many years has traveled around DK a number of times each year in order to take photos of the DRF. (QMII seems to be his favorite.) As such it's a funny little site where you can take a walk down memory lane.

For those who are especially interested, he writes that you can contact him for access to his archive in case there is something particular, you are interested in. - That may be of interest for those who write blogs or wish to illustrate an article about an event that took place perhaps many years ago.

Anyway, take a look yourselves.
