Thank you jfkhaos & kmerov...I meant both questions & so am grateful for both answers!  :)
And I also meant is it part of a large cathedral & is it very ancient? Or it is a mausoleum...it's just it looks so modern to me??

You are welcomed. Roskilde cathedral is a very old cathedral, used for burials of the royal family, and for normal church events.
In the church there is severel  buriel chapels, and  Christian IX chapel was only build and finished in 1924.
Under the chapel is the crypt where Dagmar is laid to rest. ( I was lucky enough to see it once, and it made my day!)

Kmerov, these are all fascinating. Thank you for posting them & for your explantions.  :)

Perhaps this is off topic, but I was in Denmark a few years ago - in Aahaus (sp??) - talking with some Danish people who were (in excellent English!) comparing their monarchy to ours (in Britain). It seemed that yours was much more approachable & yet somehow maintained its dignity & the respect of the people. Is it, do you think, because you have a smaller population? Or because your monarchy is very different to ours? Or because the people have a different attitude towards the monarchy?

(p.s. I thought ALL the Danish people we met were so very welcoming & lovely!!  :))

Thank you. (I like British people a lot, and im not just saying that ;D)
As for your question: I think mainly that the Royal Family at a very early stage understood what the people wanted, and what people expected of them as an institution. This goes back to the days of Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid, who understood to "read" the people, and by nature were very humble people. I think the royal family see them selves as being there for the people, and not vice verca. They are very approachable and down to earth, but they all know were the line goes, and still have a regal aura around them. I think thats why the danish population likes and respects the monarchy.Also that could in my understanding make them a bit different  from the British RF (I like the BRF,so i hope you dont get offendet!).And the danish press is very kind to the RF ;).

Thank you, kmerov for answering!  :)
We all love the Danes, too! (We always support your football team in Europe by the way - unless you're playing England! ;D )

I think our RF has much to learn from yours. Your expression that they 'see themselves there for the people & not vice versa' is very significant. Their familiarity has not bred contempt, has it? We should maybe look to you for models. (I could envisage Prince William following that.)

Perhaps when we become a republic I shall emigrate to Denmark if they'll accept English no-marks!  ;D (I know a Danish song by Lars Hook/Huck?? Will I get in with that??)

Sorry for being way off topic  :)

I feel the same way, just the other way around! If not DK, then England should win always!

As for the RF. I dont think you can call it familiarity, they are still keeping a very professionel form of distance. So no contempt. I just think they understand and feel, that overall, we are all equal as human beings (sounding a bit corny, but you know what I mean). Just very down to earth. This is of course based on my observations. Anyone feel free to disagree..

Dont say the R word ;D..But if it happends I will make shure you get in!

Well Kmerov, it seems that, unlike ours, your RF are maintaining both their dignity & the good will of the public...Can I take you up on your offer of making sure I'll get in!  :)

Crown Princess Mary sure seems to be popular. She even gets play here in the US.  :)  20/20 ran part of an interview she and the Crown Prince did shortly before their wedding and a brief story on them and they seemed very charming and in love.

The Danish Royal family behaves with the morals all people shoud have and the "common" people strive to acheive.

When an incident like divorce occurs, the Danish Royal Family behaves with class.  

The Danish Royal Family is and always has been a tribute and a credit to their country-not vice versa.

Bluetoria, I would do my best, if the worse case scenario should happend. Or have faith in the border- free EU to help. ;D

The crown Princess is popular here, but almoust more so in Australia..

Tampabay, I can only agree...
