..An excercise in public relations, in other words. Nothing wrong with that indeed.Madame Royale said:I prefer water but thanks anyway...
I simply don't see this 'event' as a sign of justifying the Danish monarchy's worth. That is a function which is carried out at the many engagements the royal representatives attend or host, both in Denmark and abroad.
I do however see it as another example of remaining accessible and constant with the public interest that is shown, and on a more personal level viewing them as a family, not just an institution which I have noted on my travels to this small, but beautiful Kingdom.
But I do see, I think, your larger point which I think is, this is a family that goes way way back with its people, so there is a relationship between royal family and public where the royals are seen as family, by the public. I think this is what you mean, correct?
