Oh dear, this blog is really great! I will come back again and again, this much is sure!

I wonder if you could tell more about the friends of the Crown Princely couple. Are they still close with Baron and Baroness Reedt-Thott? I wonder where did they meet, the Baron and Baroness I mean. Do they have any other close friends? Are they close to their Scandinavian "colleagues", princes and princesses of Norway and Sweden? What about the Crown Princely couple of Greece?

I could be wrong, but it is my impression that the Reedt-Thotts are friends but not in the innermost circle of Frederik's and Mary's friends. But we will take on board your request for more wide-ranging info about F&M's life and try to post such things about friends, staff etc. when it is appropriate. Thanks for commenting :)

Thank you so very much, if you can tell us more about their life and friends. :) I think it is somehow fascinating to think of people living CLOSE to royal families. Their friends and ladies-in-waiting and so on.

This is really a great blog, I must thank you again!
