BT reports that Prince Henrik is invited to take part in an international bridge tournament, that will take place in Copenhagen on 21st February.

Here 20 of the worlds best bridge players will take part and Prince Henrik has been invited because he is so fond of bridge.

Article: Prinsgemalen er klar til endnu en bridgedyst mod Gus Hansen - Royale | www.bt.dk

This is the second time this tournament will be held in DK.
The special thing is that you can place a bid on some of the players, Prince Henrik is however not one of them. And the highest bidder will get the one he/she bid on as a bridge partner.
Prince Henrik's partner is French, Thomas Bessis.

Spectators are known as "owls", - so I've already learned something new today.

A funny picture of PH: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files-dk/node-images/69/6/6069588-prins-henrik-bridge-2.jpg

TV2 reports that Prince Henrik is in Vietnam these days. http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/article.php/id-63978815:prins-henrik-på-scooter-i-vietnam.html?forside

Riding scooters among other things.
He also visited the home of his childhood.

I hope we get pictures of the tournament. Will this be the first time he has been invited & to play in the tournament?
 
:previous: No, this is the second time. - And I'm in no doubt he will enjoy himself.
 
Thanks Fairy Tale & Iceflower :flowers:

Are they reciting the Lords Prayer or something like that with their hands? Why not? The thought of a service for deaf has never even occured to me.
Perhaps FasterB has some remarks to add? :)

Are you asking at photo 18 in the TV2 Gallery? I think it´s either The Lords Prayer or the Credo (trosbekendelse) :flowers:

I can´t remember how these two looks like, though I have sunged to a few deafservices in my early days as churchsinger :ROFLMAO: Oh yes, there was choir and music and guess who made most noise? Us musicians or the deaf? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik have inaugurated "The Blue Planet" in Kastrup today, March 21, 2013. The Blue Planet is North Europe's largest and most modern aquarium and the "Dronning Margrethes og Prins Henriks Fond" has been one of the main sponsors.


** Pic **

Can't wait to see the Blue Planet; it's great that the regent couple's fond has been one of it's main sponsors.

A deepfelt sigh though - the regent couple recently got a new puppy didn't they? Why, oh why, could that little fella not find that .... hat .... and rip it to pieces? It would be doing us all such a great service and we would forever be in it's debt!

Nicely put, that second part :lol:

I fear the little one would have a tough time of it with that indestructible thing ;)

Here are some more pics of the opening:

I love how QMII wore blue to open The Blue Planet, if that's not suitable, I don't know what is :lol: (though I will happily agree that her "hat" isn't suitable ... for any occasion). I live freakishly close to the aquarium and had I not been to school on Thursday, I would have tried to catch a glimpse of Margrethe and Henrik (or perhaps not, I was out there on Monday and it was storming so bad and there were hundreds of people, which, I can tell you right now, is a combination that can drive anyone nuts).
 
Lehtikuva so often provide really good pics. Thanks to all for sharing.
 
Thanks LadyFinn :flowers:

I like it. I think it captures Christian very well.
Much better than if he was just standing there - and he is his father's son...
 
The lion is a bit much, in my estimation

That's one of three silver-lions standing in the Throneroom at Rosenborg Castle.
