  1. It’s amazing how many things have changed in seven years. Prince Henrik, Prince Richard, Princess Elisabeth, and Count Christian and Countess Anne Dorte of Rosenborg have passed away. Countess Alexandra and Count Jefferson have announced their separation, but Princess Theodora announced her marriage. King Constantine is doing poorly and CP Matte-Marit was diagnosed with a serious illness. Quite a lot of things to pack in such a short period of time!

    1. I agree, so much change in so little time! I was discussing with someone recently that some upcoming events (like Queen Margrethe’s 80th or her Golden Jubilee) might be the last time we see the ‘old guard’ get together as they grow older!
