The Queen will be visiting Rome from October 26-29, 2017
HM The Queen to visit Rome | The Danish Monarchy - Front Page

"The celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Danish Institute’s building in Rome and archaeological excavations at the ancient Forum Romanum are on the programme when Her Majesty The Queen visits Rome 26-29 October."

I think the Queen will be very excited about this trip!

Tomorrow (Sat 23rd Sept) Queen Margrethe will be in the UK in Canterbury in her capacity as Colonel in Chief of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment. She will be presenting new colours to the regiment and the British army's facebook page will be having live coverage of the ceremony from 11.40am British Summer Time www.facebook.com/britisharmy/

I meant to post this video ages ago from when the Queen visited one of the battalions in Germany in 2014 - it shows how valued such visits are by the soldiers: Queen of Denmark Visits 1st Battalion in Germany

I'm assuming tomorrow is just a flying visit as no one is listed as being regent or rigsforstander in Denmark.

LibrarianDaisy 09-23-2017 06:41 AM

Well, sadly the Queen is not there - she is represented by the Danish ambassador to the UK now. I hope she is ok as she was certainly down as attending on their facebook page yesterday as well as the Royal website yesterday. It is no longer on the royal website either.

Muhler 09-23-2017 09:38 AM

:previous: She's usually always attend such regimental events. - Could be all sorts of reasons for not attending:
A cold.
Back problems.
PH having a bad day.

I think we expect more cancellations like these.

I really can't see QM cancelling something like this to tend to PH on a possible bad day...He does have medical personnel for that.

Perhaps it's the back problems or she is ill.

Poor Queen Daisy, I hope she's not ill or in pain from her back. Perhaps we'll hear in due cause.

Quite a disappointment for the regiment, who have been let down. I'm sure the Queen had a plausible reason to cancel the engagement though.

LibrarianDaisy 09-23-2017 12:02 PM

I'm sure it will be a good reason as I've never known her cancel a regimental event before. It is something she is very diligent about. I had been in half a mind about going down to Canterbury to wave a danish flag at her. Just as well I decided it was just too much of a trek.

Blog Real 09-23-2017 02:45 PM

For the Queen not to go to the event is because it is for reasons of force majeure. I really believe she's sick.
Is it time to pass the throne to the son?

Muhler 09-23-2017 02:46 PM

It's official. QMII is ill. - Not seriously ill though, the court informs.

- But obviously so ill she can't drag herself out of bed, otherwise she'd been there, as this regimental event only takes place every 25 years.

Apart from QMII being the (honorary) colonel-in-chief the regiment, the Buffs as it was called before it was amalgamated with other regiments, was also a regiment where quite a few Danes served during WWII.

The cancellation was announced Saturday morning, so she tried to make it, it seems.

The court informs that QMII is well again.

"The Queen is well again. It wasn't anything serious".

The Palace also shared a nice video of the reception:

Now, I need a little help from English speakers. Preferably English speakers who were around in the mid to late 50's.

Dronning Margrethe elsker denne danske film: Den er "dødskæg" | BILLED-BLADET

Here is a delightful photo of QMII from an interview back in 2010, where she told about her TV-habits.
Actually QMII likes to put on a DVD with Danish light comedies. One of them is considered a classic in maritime circles. It's titled Martha and must be from the early 1960's. It's about a life and let life crew aboard an old rusty, coaster sailing in Greek waters, on what is basically one perpetual pleasure cruise. - The movie is a must aboard merchant ships, but also navy ships, including Dannebrog.

When this photo was taken, QMII remarks about the movie: "Den er dødskæg"! = "It's dead-fun". An older slang for something hilarious.
But it doesn't ring in English... :ermm:
So perhaps someone can remember a piece of English/American slang from the 50's about something that's hilarious? :smile:

Queen Margrethe inaugurated the permanent medieval exhibition at the Moesgaard Museum in Højbjerg today, October 9:

QMII is a frequent visitor to Moesgaard Museum. - And it really is worth a visit!

The last time I went there I noticed scratches on the floor. An employee told me it was nail-marks from the last time they had to drag QMII away from an exhibition. :tongue:

'Dead funny' is a phrase that is still used in the UK but whether it was around in the 50s I don't know as I was born at the end of that decade.
