    1. Pilot whales not dolphins - and unlikely that they would say anything.

    2. More than a thousand dolphins where killed durin this "traditional festive event". Some visitors have said that men, women and children took part in the massive killing armed with hooks, ropes and knives. The sea turned red and the cries of the dying animals were heartrendering. The images the press has shown, with the bloody sea end the corpses of the gutted dolphins are unbearable. It seems that the practice is protected by the Danish government.

    3. We don't get to dictate how other cultures live; people use what's available to them. I'm not saying I condone it, but that is their life. As a vegetarian, I don't like the slaughter of animals for "food"; but most people think nothing of eating animals, it's normal for them.

    4. Royalty fan

      I wholeheartedly agree with you, Iris, and Sakurahime, and I wish king Fillipe of Spain can speak out against the cruel bull fighting, also

    5. I like Faroe national costumes! It's nice that royal family wears them too but you can see it's not there tradition. More important question is how to stop this massive killing of such inteligent mammals as dolphins and whales all over the globe. Talking about tradition is so out of place here. I hope young generations of royals will take more important role in such cases.

    6. Royalty fan, issuing laws against animal mistreatment is competence of the EU arliament and of the parliaments and governts of each State. The king of Spain does not govern, but guarantees the Constitution.

    7. Well, the rest of humanity has put so much toxins in the sea that the whales contain a lot of them, to the point that eating them comes with health warnings. Yeay humanity, we have saved the whales...

  5. I always find it beautiful to see traditional clothes, although I ask myself if the Danish Royal Family has stolen some christmas stockings from the Brits?

  7. I see no charm at all being dressed out like that.Mary to mutch as always,and Fredrik uncomfortable in his costume.Traditional clothes is perhaps fine,but when you look like a fairytale,how fun is that?

  8. I have a lot of difficulties in accepting these horrible traditions!! Do they need that for their self-satisfaction???
    In Spain king Juan Carlos attended a fight recently but not king Felipe.
