Grand Duchess Kimberley, you are welcome to join me in the drooling anytime you want, it's always nice to have another jewel-lover around!
Here's a pic to refresh our memory...


The tiara of flowering currant design with the matching parure originally belonged to Queen Desiree of Sweden. They are even reputed to have been a wedding gift from Napoleon,when Desiree,them plain Mlle Clary, the daughter of a rich silk merchant in Marseille ( & his ex fiancee) married  Jean-Baptise Bernadotte who was later adopted as heir to the Swedish throne.They came to Denmark via one of the Swedish Princesses who later married into the Danish royal family.
The only complaint I have with this photo is that the tiara frame is so obvious, but otherwise a stunning image IMHO.  The tiara looks fairly heavy doesn't it?

I read on another board today that a particular regiment had been moved into a position so that they could fire the 21 gun salute within two hours of the birth.  Apparently the Danes like to greet newborn babies with extremely loud noises just to see if if will make them cry!  
Welcome to the world...BOOM!  BOOM!  BOOM!  BOOM! etc...What a charmingly eccentric rite!

I've got a question:
Why does the constitution have to be changed if it's a girl? They already have a Queen now, so if Frederik & Mary will have a girl first, why doesn't she automatically 'inherit the throne'?  ???


The constitution as such will not have to be changed.
Art.2 states:The Royal Power is inherited by men and women in accordance with the provisions in
the Succession to the Throne Act,March 27th 1953.It was by this Bill that Present Queen Margrete II
became,officially,Heir Apparent.

Be that as it may,the PM has already passed a Bill to Parliament(with the approval of the opposition-)to once and for all settle the Succession properly.

Danmark is getting more and more excited now,as the time is nearing,but I guess that also applies to many on this Forum.......regardless of the baby's sex,(or names.. ;))I hope both mother and child will be in good health. :)

With the PM passing a bill to Parliament, it seems likely already that the government knows that Mary is expecting a daughter, and they have done this to pre-empt the inevitable controversy about whether a firstborn, regardless of gender, should inherit the throne.
