The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Royal Wedding of the Day: August 12

This is an interesting and grand wedding. I loved the music and the flowers in the church. The fashions and jewels were spectacular. As for Mary's gown, there are things that I like and dislike, which keeps it from being one of my favorites. All in all, I enjoyed this wedding.

Danish Royal Wedding

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of a DVD with English subtitles? I know there is a DVD titled Mary & Frederik ; The Danish Royal Wedding. I can't find it anywhere online.

I've seen the vidoes on YouTube of the wedding but I don't speak Danish.

Perhaps one of our Danish members might know of English language copies made.

However, I know DVDs were made here in Oz, hardly surprisingly, for the Australian market at the time. You could try MightyApe Australia, the online store. They may well have a copy. They seem to have copies of a lot of scarce DVDs on sale when I looked!

i believe it was broadcasted live only in denmark (as you would expect) but i may be wrong. the other country who would have done it would have been australia but i doubt they would have live streamed, and maybe only resorted to showing video footage during news programmes.

The wedding was broadcasted/streamed live in Australia (on SBS). I remember it very clearly as I watched it in its entirety.

Prince Frederik and Princess Mary celebrate their 16th wedding anniversary today.

I leave here two videos of two important moments of the wedding.

Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses, Distinguished Guests, Famliy and Friends,

In the 12th Century, the marauding Vikings were driven out of Scotland after much savage fighting by a band of men led by the grandfather of the first Donald the founder of the Clan MacDonald. He would have wondered why he went so much trouble when, some 8 centuries later, we take account of today's union between the Viking Frederik and Mary of the MacDonald Clan.

For almost 4 years, my wife, Susan, and I, have watched the relationship grow to full bloom, culminating in this magnificent occasion.

Mary made a reluctant entry into the world but ever since she has eagerly embraced its offerings. Growing up under the combined influences of her mother, Henrietta, and her grandmother Mary, she has grasped every opportunity to broaden her horizons and has developed into a wonderful woman with many fine attributes. Memories abound of the bonding between Mary and her mother, the daily tours on the backseat of a bicycle around Clear Lake City when we lived in Texas, the many early, very early, car journeys down to her first loves of her life, her horses in Tasmania and the myriad communications when she moved after her graduation from the University of Tasmania to Melbourne. Henrietta would have been so happy for Mary on this her special day.

Min datter er meget smuk, tres belle, not only, as is obvious, in appearance but in many other ways including how she cares for her family and friends and the manner in which she is approaching the exciting and exacting task that lie ahead. I am the proud father of a very loving daughter.

Although fathers these days have little say in such matters, It is with great pleasure and confidence that I entrust her to the care of Frederik, an intelligent, sporting, debonair, delightful young man - what more could a father-in law ask? To Frederik, velkommen to our family. I offer a verse for your reflection from the Scottish National bard, Robert Burns.

'To make a happy fireside clime
to little ones and wife
that is the true pathos and sublime
of human life.'

Your Majesties, your Royal Highnesses, friends, please join with me in a toast to the Bride and Groom wishing them a long and happy life together.
It should read “To make a happy fireside Quine”. This is a Scottish word for Girl,

Interesting.

The word Quine - resembles the Danish work "kvinde" which means woman.
Bairn I believe is also Scottish? The word for child in Danish is "barn".
Kirk is a common place-name and also means church, right? - In Danish: "Kirke."

There must have been lots of contact across the North Sea over the centuries.

You are correct. A number of Danish words resemble and sound like real Scottish words or expressions.
I am enjoying reading back reports of events some with amusement!

. Had no idea that they lived in Texas (Clear Lake) for sometime when her mother was still alive (and Mary was at an age that she would be seated at the back of her mother's bike).
