A DAY TO REMEMBER

The Crown Prince Couple just celebrated 16 years of marriage on May 14th. It was a memorable day. Not just for the couple, but for most of the world. Somehow, their fairytale story captured people from all across the globe. The wedding was huge and spectacular. Fairytale-like and most likely overwhelming for both of them. Such a wedding can never be mentioned too many times. Also because we all are so passionated about the Crown Princess' style, her wedding outfit is simply the ultimate, right? Celebrating 16 years together is remarkable and that is why we also need to take a look back in time with little 'fun facts' from the big day. I have gathered a bunch of well-known (and maybe new) facts covering May 14th 2004.

AN 80TH BIRTHDAY

Our beloved Queen Margrethe turns 80 years old this year. A lot was planned; ways to celebrate Denmark's and everybody else's Queen, but because of the ongoing situation with COVID-19 everything were canceled. I know many people, both in public and in private, had been looking forward to celebrate Queen Margrethe on her big day and she is still celebrated. Usually, I only write about the Crown Princess but this is such a historic day. I cannot miss reporting about, right? I also assume that many of you are interested in following how she is celebrated on her 80th birthday.

I speak for all of us, when I congratulate Queen Margrethe. We all wish her a wonderful and memorable day!

The world has turned upside down within just a few weeks. We all experience it diffidently - some keep calm, some are frustrated and others makes it work for the rest of us. I wish the best for all of you and your loved ones. Together, we will find a solution and work it through. 

The situation has also affected the royal family. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have arrived home from Verbier and are currently staying (isolated?) at Amalienborg. Yesterday, the court shared pictures of the Crown Prince talking with Red Cross Denmark, who makes an effort in this overwhelming moment of frustration. These pictures, taken by Prince Christian, shows the family is now home safe and sound.

Today, the court announced that both Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik's Foundation, and Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary's Foundation have donated 750,000 DKK to Red Cross Denmark and their work in Denmark right now.

Of course I will keep ou updated, but that is pretty much it. Still, we need a little something to cheer up the heavy air surrounding us. For the next 7 days I will share facts relating to the Crown Princess - a new one each day. So, keep an eye on this post, share your fun facts about her, let me know what you knew about and what came as a surprise.
