I would love to know what her HM is going to do during her private time while visiting St Petersburg. Maybe a visit to St Isaacs Cathedral perhaps where the Dowager Empress was laid to rest in 2005.
Did she not already visit the grave of the Dowager Empress during the official portion? I would love to be a fly on the wall of Dannebrog and listen to the plans for HM private visit. Surely the many museums of St Petersburg will attract her attention and the Hermitage itself is worth several days of study! Perhaps an evening at the Mariinsky Theatre to hear Boris Godunov that is playing this month and maybe a ballet performance or two (or three!) will be on the agenda. There is more than enough to see in St Petersburg! Bonne visite majeste!
Muhler, are you unwell? Have you been injured! Of course I await your convenience and Thursday's BB but please take care!It's still slow and a bit tiring for me to type a lot, so please bear with me.
I think we should wait for the BB articles Thursday.
From what little I have seen so far, QMII sounded as if she has a cold. The Regent Couple were last on an official visit to Russia/Soviet Union in 1975 and what strikes them the most is the tremendous change since then, not least in the mentallity of the Russians. They are much more open now, and not afraid to speak to foreigners. They express themselves freely know.
QMII also commented on 9/11.
Frederik returned home today.
QMII will fly home in a couple of days, while PH will sail to Helsingfors.
