  2. Percibo una gran soberbia en sus poses, como si fuera una monarca del siglo XVIII

  3. She seems to be very emotionally intelligent. There’s a sensitivity to everything happening around I had noticed for a very long time. Well before our current environment. She seems to always reflect the mood and feelings of her nation. In good and happy times (remember her speech when Frederick turned 50? It was just beautiful and simple, direct) and in challenging ones. It shows in her demeanour and choice of attire. Look at these pictures released for her birthday. Very appropriate given the dark days we are going through. May she have a long and healthy life. CH

  4. There is a lovely mashup video online of some of the European Royals sending video Birthday messages to Queen Margarethe. Lovely hearing them call her 'Daisy' (which is the meaning of her name) and calling her 'Aunt', which of course she is to some of them.

  8. Congratulations to Queen Margrethe and wishes for many more healthy years. Great photos of the family. Thanks for the tip re the video which I shall look for later. Re wearing dull colours in difficult times, you may recall that the late Queen Mother, during the Second World War refused to wear army uniform and always dressed in her usual floating pastel dresses throughout the war in order to bring some cheer to the people she was visiting. And they loved her for it

  10. Happy birthday to her.

    I don't know why, but most of the pics above look sooo photoshopped for me. Is it because of the technique that the photographer used? don't know..

    1. I don't think the photos looked photoshopped at all - photoshopped meaning doctored, manipulated, altered to misrepresent, or falsely represent what wasn't in the original such as taking someone out or adding someone or something in.
      They may well be re-touched, meaning refocused, colour augmentation, made darker or brighter, noise reduction, white balance, etc. all of which is 100% normal in professional or amateur photography.

    2. Anon 9:13 is correct. Professional photography always has some corrections made, or "post".
