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.
