Well, the birthday party for the twins last Sunday must have been very
Summary of article in Billed Bladet #02, 2017.
Written by Karina Didriksen and Ulrik Ulriksen.
Who took up position in front of Amalienborg last Sunday forenoon.
The first guests started to arrive at 09.55 and by 10.15 the last of no less than 33 guests altogether had arrived for the party.
Some parked nearby and walked to the mansion, others drove in by the main gate (that's the gate to the left, when you stand in front of the mansion) to park in the inner courtyard.
At some point Christian and Vincent were seen looking for the guests at the other gate, the kitchen gate, so to speak.
At 11.08 farmor Margrethe drove out from her mansion and drove across the square to visit her two grandchildren. She left 1½ hours later.
The lasts guest left around 15.00.
At some point shortly before the changing of the guards at noon, M&F and all four children were seen in the kitchen windows. (That's the windows over the kitchen-gate). In the windows little Dannebrogs could be seen as well.
The children waved to our reporters standing on the square. - There are no photos of that in the article. The DK laws on privacy are strict! Just because children wave to you, that's no excuse to take photos of them, let alone publish them. They are still on private grounds.
A little later QMII as well came to the window to have a peek at our reporters it seems.
But at noon, when the changing of the guards took place, the family appears to have joined the rest of the party.
The guests were:
Bendt Tido Wedell, with two children.
Peter Bang, with two children. Peter Bang is a close friend of Frederik.
Joachim with his two youngest. But our Marie was not there.
Jakob and Stephanie Blom, with two children. One of them, a daughter, attends the same kindergarten as the twins.
Otto and Helle Reedtz-Thott and two of their three children.
Countess Caroline with two children.
Christian Levin and his wife Sofie Glahn with daughter.
But on Monday the twins were celebrated in their kindergarten as well.
In the forenoon the children gathered to sing the birthday song for them and shout hurrah. And they each got a present.
In return Vincent and Josephine had brought some treats from home to divide among the children.

There is also a booklet depicting the 45 year reign of QMII, but that will be uploaded when I get around to scan it.
