Well, I think I'll declare ignorance and advise you to write the library and/or court and ask.

I'm certain the library will appreciate feedback from not least international users.

Perhaps our moderators will help placing this summary in the correct thread?

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

The private library of QMII has released a database with 10.000 photos from the private collection of the DRF.
Most have not been published before.
The photos start around 1844 and most of those released are no later than the 1920's - that's due to the copyright legislation.
It's QMII who authorized the release of the photos.

Some photos are also historical, Like the ruins of Paris after the Franco-Prussian War in 1871.

The photos are free to be downloaded and used.
Provided you credit:
Den Kongelige Fotografisamling, Kongernes Samling


Here is the database:
https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...n/welcome.jspx

Type (XYZ) in the field Fritekstsøgning in the lower right corner.

I tested by typing: Fredensborg and got this:
https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...sr=fredensborg

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

Back in 2016 QMII decided to share some of the private photos stored in the Royal Library. The Royal Library being in principle the personal library of the Monarch, but it's also an archive and a favorite among historians and researchers.
So for the past five years people have been busy finding photos, scanning them, registering them, doing research and so on ending up with an extensive public database of some 10.000 photographs of which the first photograph is from 1844.
This one: https://asset.dr.dk/imagescaler/?pro...&w=1000&h=1007
The library has not been able to ID all photographs and have asked the public for help, should anyone be in the know.
For copyright reasons most of the published photographs are no later than the 1920's.

Many of the photos are by Queen Alexandrine who was an eager photographer when she was young.

The database does not only depict royals in more or less private and informal situation, but also historical photos from main events at the time. Wars or expeditions or monuments or buildings. (Presumably bought by the DRF at the time in order to have a real life image of what they heard or read about.)

Over time more photos will be added to the database.

And BTW for those interested in trains, there are a lot of trains in this database. (Someone must have been very interested in trains, we must assume.)

You can see some samples in this article about the database:

Indeed.

But such opinion polls should be read carefully. Often it depends on when they were made. If Mary had just prior to the poll, been shown in the media in a positive light, there will be natural tendency for people who are asked pretty much out of the blue to put her before QMII, and vise versa.
What is consistent is that Frederik for years has been the most popular member of the DRF.
That I find much more telling.

However, that Mary is able to compete with a highly respected Monarch, who has had 50 years of service behind her, is by any standard impressive!

And as the article suggest, it is of course an advantage, also for QMII. Because it means that the continuation of the dynasty is secure, at least for a foreseeable future. Which suggests that the way QMII has handled the transition was and is well executed.
Because it's not a case of M&F pushing QMII aside. She's still up there in the top three, and there are no signs that the public will move her away from that position.

I believe the poll being referenced was conducted in the summer of 2021 around July.

And very little happens in July.

So even a thing like an Instagram post may tip the balance.

June 2021 had the reunification event with QMII, Frederik and Christian.

The biggest thing in July was the Queen's visit to the Faroe Islands.

There were posts about the Olympic events, Mary went to France at end of June for an event.

Which Instagram post from July do you suggest have swayed people to rate Mary higher than QMII? With all due respect to the DRF, it's not like they go crazy on their social media during the holidays either.

Sounds like if anything, this would have skewed the poll towards being more positive towards the queen rather than to the crown princess...

In general, approval ratings of 78% (Frederik), 75% (Mary) and 73% (Margrethe) are a good sign for the monarchy as a whole. And there is no shame in the younger (soon both in their 50s) being more popular than an older monarch. It seems queen Elizabeth is the only one who was not overtaken by the younger generation when getting older (or maybe she was 10-15 years ago and becoming THIS old helped to solidify her position).

It was an example. Hence: even a thing like an Instagram post may tip the balance.

Not least because it was five minutes to bedtime and I couldn't remember off hand what happened in July.

-----------

Well if the main focus in July was on QMII as well as Frederik and to some extent Christian, it only makes Mary score even more impressive.
And if it continues you could argue that it's a public indication that M&F not only act like the de facto regent couple, they are the de facto regent couple.

It was announced today that the Honorary Dinner for the Air Force, the Armed Forces and the Danish Emergency Management Agency at Christian VII's Palace, Amalienborg, that should have been hosted by Queen Margrethe and attended by the Crown Prince Couple on March 11, will not take place due to the current situation in the Ukraine.

Furthermore, out of the same reason, the reception of the new Ambassadors on March 9 will take place "without major ceremonial participation from the Royal Life Guards and the Gardehus Regiment's internal commands and without an escort by the Gardehus Regiment's Horse Squadron":

I will place this here for time being at least, because I can't find a general news thread under the QMII section that covers something like this.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/margrethe-p...vagt-sandheden

It's another episode by a former PET protection officer.
I wrote about his book in the general thread of M&F.
This time from 1993 involving QMII and a mentally disturbed woman.

It happened in May 1993 when QMII visited a gallery in central Copenhagen. A private visit.
After having escorted QMII into the gallery the PET officer, walked about outside the entrance to the building in which the gallery was located. And he had noticed a woman.
The other PET officer had stayed with QMII.

The behavior of the woman became more and more odd, so the PET officer confronted her. The woman explained that she was checking his movements/going about.
The PET officer ID'ed himself as a policeman and told the woman to stop following him. But the woman didn't believe him and accused the PET officer of speaking Spanish on his radio. As the second officer with QMII didn't know how the woman looked like, he intended to screen the door to the gallery but the woman apparently thought she was going to be arrested and began to run, towards the door to the gallery. (Apparently by accident, the article is poorly written, and it's difficult to follow the event!) There the woman tripped and landed on her belly halfway inside the gallery.

Afterwards the PET officers got a dressing down for not having been alert enough.

I can't remember that episode even though it was well published in the papers at the time.

The Palace has released an announcement about a donation to the Ukraine today, March 12:


Quote:
The board of the Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik Foundation and the board of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary Foundation have together decided to donate 1,000,000 kroner to the victims of the war in Ukraine.

Under the heading "Together for Ukraine", a large number of Danish relief organizations will gather on Saturday 12 March 2022 for emergency assistance to the victims of the war in Ukraine.

** instagram post **


** kongehuset: Donation til ofre for krigen i Ukraine **


A message of Queen Margrethe is added to the announcement:


Quote:
"Europe is at war again. I am infinitely sad to witness what is happening in Ukraine now. The development and hope that flourished throughout Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall are now crumbling before our eyes.

Every day we watch footage of the devastation and injustice of war. The unhappy faces of children and women who have to say goodbye to their parents, brothers and husbands who are fighting for Ukraine as soldiers. And also the heroic figures of strong Ukrainian youth who are fighting for freedom - they have the right to it and it is they who are now protecting it with their lives.
For us Danes, this whole situation makes an unforgettable impression. We sympathize with the Ukrainian people and support all those who provide emergency assistance and save lives.
May this senseless war end as soon as possible!

not sure where to post..
the documentary on the Royal House and Greenland will be out June 19
https://digitalt.tv/premierekalender...t-i-groenland/

"Take Crown Prince Frederik to his beloved Greenland, and experience him like never before: Skiing with blindfolds, free-floating from a helicopter high above Greenland's terrific snowy landscape and in his cordial meeting with Greenlandic orphanage children. Meanwhile, the Queen openly talks about more than 100 years of royal efforts to preserve Greenland as part of the kingdom. The popular royal visits have for generations been an important part of this effort."

Frederik was in Greenland in late March/April I believe taken part and visiting various places and organizations in Greenland.

one was the National Theatre of Greenland

A clip from the documentary. Frederik spends time with vulnerable children.

What a sweet clip! You don't even need to understand what they are saying to note how wonderfully Frederik interacts with the kids. Looking forward to watching this with English subtitles.

I think this is the best place to post this:
https://www.bt.dk/royale/kongehuset-...hofleverandoer

The Danish shoe company Ecco has refused to withdraw from Russia, despite considerable public and political criticism.
Ecco is holder of the coveted "purveyor to the Royal Danish Court" which is a major stamp of approval. It signals that your company has a high level of integrity and has been vetted as being honest and reliable. Ecco has had that stamp of approval since 1991. - For a period at a time, after which it has been renewed.
The court has now informed that the stamp of approval will not be renewed next year.

- Normally that's considered pretty bad!
Ecco is such a large company that they might very likely survive without that stamp, especially abroad, but it's something their suppliers, competitors and people they do business with may notice!
It is in other words and IMO a warning to other Danish businesses: Pull out of Russia or lose the grace of the DRF - and with that also the state.
That may very well mean that Ecco is no longer invited to participate on commercial visit, headed by the DRF and/or the Minister of Commerce.
The Ecco family should not expect to be invited to official events with the DRF anymore.
Any private connections they have with the DRF are also likely to be severed.

And Ecco will have to work extra hard if they ever hope to win back the royal seal of approval.
Once you fall out of grace, it's difficult to return.

Not only that Ecco has been subjected to a semi-sh*tstorm by the public in DK, I think it will now turn into a major public boycott, not only from costumers but also by shops selling Ecco Shoes.

It is certainly rare that the DRF take back a seal of approval, and I'm sure Ecco would have been warned discreetly, but the company chose to ignore the warnings, so...

The words from the court are:
"Based on a combined assessment of ECCO it has been decided that the business from 16. April next year can no longer use the label: Purveyor to the Royal Danish Court."
På baggrund af en samlet vurdering af ECCO er det blevet besluttet, at virksomheden med virkning fra 16. april næste år ikke længere kan benytte prædikatet Kongelig Hofleverandør
