No, the original Flora Danica is still in use at very special occasions. According to the post it was last used for Queen Ingrid's 80th birthday in 1990. Of the original 1800 pieces about 1500 are still extant.

If Amalienborg is run anything like Stockholm palace the dinnerware won't be washed, but wiped clean with cloth and a special disinfectant to spare them.

The IG photos of a young Margrethe and her papa are sobering and bittersweet. To reign for 50 years is quite an accomplishment!

I love that even the young grandkids are eating with the adults off the Flora Danica! Beautiful pics!

I am delighted that even without in-person galas (at this stage) the Golden Jubilee is receiving the public commemorations befitting of a historical milestone. Thank you to all of the posters who have diligently shared news, photos, and especially translations.

The Queen has been "greeted" with protesting shouts yesterday before she entered Chriansborg. Can someone tell us what these protests have been about? What did they exactly shout?
Such a pity there were hardly any shouts of acclaim at this event, especially at this special day...!
https://www.dr.dk/drtv/se/margrethe-...isk-dag_294418

I thought Denmark was one of the few monarchies where there was virtually hardly any discussion about the institution and I think at the Queen´s previous anniversaries, protests like these would have been quite unthinkable.

I was unable to follow much of what went on yesterday, so all of you are probably better informed than me.

I don't know about any protests outside Christiansborg and they may not even have been directed at QMII.
As we saw at the opening of the Parliament last year, there were demonstrations, but not against the DRF.
Anyway, of course there is some debate about the monarchy and of course some would like to abolish the monarchy if not for other reasons, then out of principle.
But there are not that many and they are not that vocal.
And right now the monarchy is pretty much untouchable. Not even the far left socialists have bothered to say anything.

It's like protesting against soccer when the national team has just won the championships. - Pretty futile.

I linked the live coverage above. You can watch it at about 1:10 h. People with signs shouted constantly something when the royal family arrived and left. It occured anti-royalist to me, but as a non-Dane I´m not sure. I thought it was so rude (children were among them, too) to do so at the 50th anniversary of the death of the Queen´s father...!

I don't seem to be able to see it.

Can you recall a word or two from the signs?
Or are there other links?

Yesterday, it was mentioned somewhere, BT, I think, that it was a demonstration against the goverments handling of the covid-situation.

One of the signs said "Hvorfor lyver Mette" - "Why does Mette (PM Frederiksen) lie"

The man who shouted when Princess Benedikte arrived had a clear republican message. I couldn't hear, nor could the commentators, but I guess it continued in the same vein.

Both DR and TV2 were very careful not to pay it too much attention but it seemed obvious both from the little glimpses where you could see the signs the "protestors" were carrying and from what they were shouting that they were anti-vaxxers or COVID-19 deniers.

In a programme about Danish COVID-19 conspiracy theorists aired late last year, one of the participants moped on about QMII playing a major part in the "COVID-19 conspiracy" so perhaps not surprising that they would turn up both at Christiansborg and in Roskilde yesterday It also makes sense considering that these types of people for obvious reasons wouldn't care to follow the authorities' recommendations and the DRF's wishes that people didn't crowd together yesterday.

thank you Muhler for the better photograph.

I cannot hear any anti monarchy protests but against the government, we have protests because of Covid here like in other countries. it's democratic to be anle to say this, so I don't care and am sure HM did not either. And as a new monarch is proclaimed the day the late has died the day is a symbol for continuity which is positive.

HM seems to have had pain, maybe her hips.
Marie does not look happy at all and I am shocked like often what Joachim looks like, I hope he lives a healthier life nowIsabella makes me smile, typical facial expression if a teenager :-D

Love the picture, guess some of them were "thankful" for the special circumstances because of the pandemic which made the whole event less exhausting and more personal with mostly only family around.

Hope they enjoyed it s much as the rest of Danmark did.Meget held!

Your Majesty, dear cousin,
On the 50th anniversary of the accession to the throne as head of state and Queen of Denmark, I send my and the Swedish people's sincere congratulations.
This festival day reminds us of the historical community, closeness and cordiality that unites both our families and our countries.
Unfortunately, the pandemic prevents us from sharing this day together. The Queen and I look forward to seeing you again as soon as circumstances allow.
I send my warmest good wishes.

Ah, a reference of the government ordering the killing off of all minks in DK.
That's very much a political issue. - Nothing to do with the DRF.

Apart from those who are hardcore opponents of the government or anti-restrictions, there is not much sympathy for the mink-breeders. Not even over here in rural Jutland. The mink-breeders were not the only ones to suffer. Many others have been forced to close their business and at least the mink-breeders were compensated handsomely.
Anyway the PM, Mette Frederiksen, can just leave Danish politics and secure herself an international top-job.
While the first Danish female PM, Helle Thorning, (*) was a flop, the second, Mette Frederiksen, wasn't.

(*) The true leader during that government, Margrethe Vestager, now has a top-job in EU and might very well end up getting the top-job there.

It was *something something* "this is a democracy, get that through your heads". Combined with the signs they were carrying (the same types of signs protestors in Roskilde were carrying which makes me think it was coordinated nuisance), I doubt it was republican so much as it was aimed at the COVID-19 restrictions. Just a convenient opportunity for media exposure, but thankfully the media didn't pay them lots of attention.
