Edit: Read carefully the article. It's all about titles, not property.

The Law of Property Act 1925 facilitated barring the entail, but entailed estates were not abolished with it.

Law of Property Act 1925

Without making use of entails, the British aristocracy still is able to effectively preclude women from the inheritance of properties, as Marg's article illustrates. In most instances, the family home is left to the male heir to the peerage.

Quote:
Most vocal among them is Edward Lambton, 'Ned' to his friends, or the 7th Earl of Durham to readers of Debrett's. As the only son of the late Lord Lambton, the Tory minister who resigned in 1973 after being photographed in bed with a prostitute, he inherited the entirety of his father's £12m fortune, including Lambton Castle and Biddick Hall in County Durham, and Villa Cetinale in Tuscany, considered by some to be Italy's most beautiful house. As the elder Lambton spent the last 30 years of his life in Italy, under Italian law all his children are entitled to a share of the estate. Since his death in 2006, three of his daughters have been locked in a dispute with their brother, demanding their share. Just as they were preparing to settle for a payment of £1m each, negotiations broke down and Ned served a High Court writ, designed to clarify some outstanding legal issues.

But it has nothing to do with laws. British laws allow to leave all estate to daughters.

I think that Marg's post was referring to the British laws of succession to aristocratic titles, which are put as justification for bypassing daughters and leaving the family property and fortune to male heirs.

Danish New Ceremonial Events.

I read in the Biography of Princess Mary, 2005, that QM11 had introduced many new ceremonial events to the Danish National Calendar. Can anybody comment of this?

One of QMII's four LiWs is retiring from duty.

https://www.bt.dk/royale/dronningen-...ner-ny-hofdame

It is Ane Vibeke Foss, who after many years has requested being relieved of her duties. (*)
Ane Vibeke Foss is 80 years old and a close personal friend of QMII since their youth.

Replacing her from 1. July is Henriette Obel, chamberlain.
Henriette Obel has had a very distinguished career in private businesses.

She joins the three other LiWs QMII has, Annette de Scheel (nobility), Annelise Wern (nobility) and Jette Nordam.

A Lady in Waiting is a personal assistant that is even more personal, than a hired personal assistant. Apart from assisting the Queen in various matters on duty and in sorting through the more personal letters to QMII a LiW is also a close confidante with an intimate knowledge of the royal lady they serve, they have to in order to help. That can be anything from acquiring very personal sanitary articles to picking up the signals when their royal lady needs to be "rescued" from a bore. A LiW will often also go to a place that will have a longer royal visit, to ensure that say personal facilities are in place and contain what is required, that bouquets and the attire of their lay will match and a multitude of other personal matters.
A LiW is expected to always be discreetly presentable. She must never outshine her lady, like the bodyguards, always close but unnoticed.

A LiW does not resign or get fired. They either ask to be relieved of their duties. Or if having made a transgression, they are dismissed.
That's because a LiW is not a paid member of the staff, and as such is outside the staff-hierarchy.
A LiW is requested to serve her lady/Monarch and it is an honor, privilege and duty to serve. One certainly does not get paid as if one was a mere maid!

Apart from the honor (also to your family, because you are not chosen if your family has a history of being controversial or having done shady things) the job contains a good deal of perks and privileges. You are sure to retire with stars and orders and a personal reputation and integrity that is considered above reproach. - And if you are married to such an esteemed being, it rubs off on you as well...

Traditionally it was members of the nobility only who served as Ladies in Waiting, but today that is no longer a requirement, even though most are still from noble families.
Today they are selected for their high integrity, personal relationship with their lady and for high intelligence and education, often in leadership positions, giving them added authority when needed.

Follow up.

Here is a photo of Henriette Obel.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/dronningen-...ner-ny-hofdame

She is very well educated business women, who has lived for a number of years in England with her husband, who was an investor there.
Her mother-in-law, Ulla Obel, is a personal friend of QMII and a former LiW herself.
The family is friends with both QMII and M&F.
It's a very discreet family. It's hard to fidn photos of the family members and even photos of the place they live, Haxholm Estate, in Jutland are hard to find. https://www.kroneborg.dk/images/show...4786505727.png
The estate is from the 1500s, but the current main building is from 1909. It has been owned by the Obel family since 1926.

- I wonder if she has daughters? In that case they might be of interest to Mary when she becomes queen.
This is the ebst I could find:

How wonderful that the whole family know her, no chance of Courtiers overstepping themselves and interfering in the family dynamics.

According to BT QMII's LiWs share the year between them, so that each LiW is on duty for three months at a time.

- That is nevertheless a long time, because QMII constantly has a LiW around, also at dinner, where her adjutant on duty is also present. As well as on holidays. (A majesty is never on her own.)

Also, I have to correct my previous post. Ladies in Waiting nowadays receive a salary.
- Come to think of it, I do seem to recall that this was introduced some 10-20 years ago, after some controversy regarding the LiWs working for free.
The salary can IMO hardly amount to much more than pocket money for the ladies, as they all seem to be wealthy in their own rights.

Very interesting! Does Mary or all senior Royal ladies have LiW or Just the Queen?

Mary has one LiW. And always have.
When she becomes queen I imagine she will have at least two, pretty much full time LiWs.

Our Marie used to have a LiW as well.
But now she use a relative of Prince Henrik as a personal assistant when on the job in DK at least. Can't remember his name off hand. He is a nephew of PH,, lives in DK and IIRC is married to a Dane.
And when abroad she is typically teamed up with members of the court or government and ministerial civil servants or people from the embassy.

Joachim at least used to have a permanent adjutant, who doubled as part time secretary, court-liaison officer and sometimes a kind of adjutant/gentleman-in-waiting when on the job.
Because that adjutant pretty much constituted the entire staff of Joachim.

QMII has a Staff of Adjutants and they cover the entire DRF. Today that's mainly M&F and sometimes Joachim and Benedikte.
They rotate and often serve for only a few years. So say Mary's adjutant on the job on a Tuesday may not be the same as the one on Thursday.
That is in contrast to say Crown Princess Victoria, who AFAIK do not have a LiW, but instead a permanently attached female adjutant, who perform pretty much the same tasks as an adjutant and LiW. - But of course without being a close personal friend.

Quite correctly Crown Princess Victoria has chosen to have aide-de-camps instead of ladies in waiting. The reason behind this is said to be that she wants to keep her organisation like her father's who quite naturally has aide-de-camps and not ladies in waiting. The aide-de-camps, who are both male and female, number 12 and are on a rotating schedule of service for one month each per year. They're all high-ranking officers who live at Haga Palace while on duty and are expected to be available around the clock.

Mary's LIW is also her private secretary.

On July 4 the exhibition "Princess dresses" will open at the Amalienborg Museum. It will present a selection of dresses by Jørgen Bender created for Princess Benedikte (21 dresses like birthday dresses and her silver wedding dress):

Crown Princess Victoria has twelve aide-de-camps, a year ago five of them were men and seven women. They are all high-ranking officers. Of those, in 2017 commander Ewa Skoog Haslum was chosen as the vice chancellor of the Swedish Defence University and later the Chief of Navy and promoted as rear admiral, the first female admiral in Sweden. Colonel Laura Swaan Wrede was appointed as the first female commander of Livgardet, and on 1st April this year as the acting army chief and promoted as brigadier general, the first female general at the Swedish Armed Forces. Of those who still work as Victoria's aide-de-camps, Lieutenant Colonel Stefan Wilson is the Head of Tactical Warfare Division at the Swedish Defence University. Colonel Lena Persson Herlitz is the Head of Training Department at Swedish Armed Forces HQ. Colonel Malin Persson is Air Base Wing Commander etcetera.
