It appears to be a mixed demonstration with representatives for various people (*) from nurses advocating better pay and conditions, to LGBTQ people demonstrating for more tolerance at places of education.

I could not make out what was yelled, judging from the live comments it appears to be anti-vaxers who called for Mary.
Mary has personally encouraged vaccinations and she is an active advocate for LGBTQ rights, so it's hardly a surprise they wanted her attention.

(*) Legal demonstrations in DK requires a permit from the police, so that they can protect the demonstrators (I.e. protect freedom of speech and freedom to congregate) and direct traffic. Of course for security reasons and space I assume representatives only were permitted to demonstrate in the inner courtyard of the Parliament.
Normally that area is occupied by onlookers.

Oh wow....okay. I did pick out the word vaccine from the commentary and them saying kronprincesse (sp?) alot. Is it me or did Mary look at times slightly uncomfortable (it was like split second moments). Maybe it was just me...lol. I also noticed she didn't really wave to the crowd when exiting the car like she usually does - In fact, I am not sure she even looked over to the crowd. Is there a large anti-vax movement in Denmark?

That's probably prudent of her.
She did look briefly at the demonstrators.

Presumably they had been warned in advance.

The anti-vaxers are very few, albeit it vocal. And IMO they get an disproportionate amount of attention.

On a day to day basis they can be expected to be told off by family, friends, coworkers and everybody else their voice their opinion to.

I think Mary did the right thing because acknowledging anti-vaxers is counter-productive. Attention is like petrol on a fire.

The attendance of members of the Danish Royal Family at the official opening of Parliament is an affirmation of hope and I believe HM, Frederik, Mary and Benedikte are well aware of this in these strained times.

I agree. Acknowledging the negative jeers is giving them the attention they want. It is always the whiners that even if few, are the loudest and the media gives them attention (if it bleeds, it leads as they say).

For years I have wondered why the Folketing does not spice things up a bit, like in Sweden, Norway or even in republican Germany, where floral decorations are added for the occasion.

Now the royal guests are just seated on the public tribune and then they leave. I would have used a bit more of decorum.

The opening of Parliment will be this Tuesday. The Queen, Crown Prince Couple, and Benedikte will attend.

And before we derail the thread, no Joachim and Marie were not listed as attending. Not for the first time, they didn't attend last year as well.

Tomorrow is the first Tuesday in October and that means the Opening of the Parliament, where the DRF are always invited as guests of honor.

It's usually very well covered by the press. - This year even more so, I suspect. And not only for the DRF.

Anyway, DR1 no doubt send live.
Billed Bladet will send live.
BT will probably provide at least a live blog.

For additional videos and photos, keep an eye on Tv2 and Berlingske.dk.

When did the monarch stop giving the "speach from the throne"?

Don't know. During the 1920's I think.

There are considerable protest about the king being on the floor of the Parliament back in the late 1940s. That was one of the reasons for the change in the Constitution in 1953.
It was believed that an unelected person should not be on the floor of a democratic parliament. On top of that there was ideological majority for a republic back then - but not a majority in the population.
And at that time the Communists were well represented in the Parliament.

- And that's how the Danish Monarch ended up being a guest of honor on what we call the Celebration of the Democracy. I.e. the opening of the Parliament on the first Tuesday in October.
And also why the DRF sit on the balcony among the guests and onlookers.

- I think that's a good compromise. It illustrates the link between democracy and a monarchy and how these two entities can easily co-exist.
