"A lot has happened on the digital front since Kongehuset got its first website in the mid-1990s ��

In the last quarter of a century, kongehuset.dk has changed its design four times, most recently in 2016, and tomorrow a newly designed website will be launched that offers an updated and more user-friendly design. Here in this post you will see a number of the website's previous expressions.

Kongehuset.dk continuously tells about the royal family's many tasks and activities through texts, pictures and videos. In addition, the website provides the opportunity to get both the quick overview and the historical immersion, and at major events in the Royal House, it is also on the website that, for example, guest lists and menus are published first. In addition, all official program items can be accessed in the Royal House's calendar, which can be found on the front page of the website."

Let's hope their news update are a little more complete.

As has been pointed out many times now, many smaller events are not even mentioned, let alone scheduled.

One hopes it will indeed be updated and user-friendly as promised. Unfortunately, some "updates" to royal websites in other countries have done more harm than good.

From the DRF IG stories

I am hoping that this re-design will involve improvement in keeping the calendar properly populated for every member of the DRF. Also, that news, photos, videos of events will be posted in a timely manner.

Haven't tried yet but sounds like the British royal family-site which was so much easier to navigate prior to their upgrade...

Yes, I have. What is it you are looking for? In the top right hand corner is the menu link and there are loads of links on there.

My calendar is stuck on November. December starts on the 3rd throwing off the entire month with the dates falling on the wrong days. Maybe only the English version is messed up which would suck since I don't speak Danish

It seems the English version of the website has no calendar. I can no longer even view the website properly on my mobile phone. Sometimes if it isn't broke don't fix it.

I must confess, although I don't speak Danish, I use the Danish version of the site as it has much more content than the English version (and seems to be kept more up to date). I get my web browser to translate it for me which isn't always perfect but I can usually work out what is meant. I've just looked on the English version and you've done better than me as I can't even see a calendar now! The new Danish version now has it running along the top with a link to the old style version. It could be they haven't quite got the English version sorted properly yet - let's hope so x

Im exploring it now and I like it, it'll take me a second to get use to it but so far, I like that it has more pics/videos ready. The navigating has been fun. I use the Danish version as it always had more links then the English version.

I had to change my browser from Google Chrome to Microsoft Edge and now I can view the website. I am trying to navigate through it. I usually just use Google Translate for the website. Like you said, it isn't perfect, but you get the gist of what they are saying. Microsoft Edge has the same feature, so I just used that. I can now find the old style calendar as well. The translation of the dates are a little off, but I can figure out what day/time is being shown.

Well, my Microsoft Edge browser is no longer allowing me to look at the website. It is back to a list of just blue links. FireFox browser does not have a translate feature so I can't understand anything on the website. I give up.

I never navigated the website in Danish. Google just always automatically translated the site for me.

One thing I am liking as I start to navigate the site is that you can click on a particular member and then find all the news quite nicely organized that pertains just to them or includes them ie, transcripts of speeches at events, gallery, videos, press releases, etc. Seems better organized now in that respect.

Now, this is a serious treat for those interested in royal history!
(Placed here for the time being.)

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: Amalienborg and got this:
https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...sr=amalienborg

Happy hunting.

Hey, Muhler, when did the succession line change from "av" to "til"? Everything in here seems to say "av".

Eh, example, please.

Because "off = af" in Danish, not "av" that would be Norwegian.

"Haakon 7. af Norge (Prins Carl af Danmark, 1872-1957, r. 1905-1957)"

Sorry about the spelling.

Hmm.

I inserted your quote into the search field and looked at the results.

Like this one: https://kgl-fotosamling.kongernessam...r.%201905-1957)

Where it says Christian 10 af Danmark. - Which is correct because Danish monarchs are always "of Denmark".

There is also Haakon 7th "av" Norge, which is also correct. But he used to be a Danish Prince, and perhaps still was. (He was after all born a Prince, who just happened to become king of Norway.) So perhaps he kept his Danish title also? But being the King of Norway he automatically left the Danish Line of Succession. Which means he changed his old Danish title from Carl to Denmark, to Carl of Denmark?

If you look at Prince Knud, he is correctly Prince "to" Denmark.

- If there are various forms, perhaps they are down to errors?

In the article I posted a link to, and which I intend to summarize tomorrow, they mention that some of the photos and persons in them are unknown and they ask for help from the public, in case anyone should be in the know.
So perhaps the odd error has gone through the filter?
Because to the very best of my knowledge Danish royals in the Line of Succession have always been "to Denmark". At least back to the first democratic Constitution in 1849.

- An option is of course to write the Library and ask.

I can't figure out why he would a) keep the Danish title after becoming Haakon VII, or b) do anything to it. But at the point of the oldest few pictures he was not Haakon and still very much "Carl til Danmark". So there wasn't a switch in succession titles... Somebody goofed.

I still need to write the Palace in Oslo and politely point out I'm 90% sure the baby picture they identify as little Carl with Lovisa is likely not him but Christian. -__-;;

I wonder which one would be easier?

Edit: I just double-checked and they did the same for George of Greece (who's listed as Georg 1. af Grækenland (=Prins Vilhelm af Danmark, 1863-1913, r. 1863-1913))
