- Overall it was a good classic new year's speech, where the queen gave good advice and lifted the moral index finger. But when people are so excited yesterday, because the king hit a sore point with us all, as she pointed out selvoptagetheden - about to talk about, that we might be thinking a bit too much on how we appear at the expense of the other. It is something very everyday, for many it seems enough, that selfie-culture has taken the upper hand, considers the royal expert Lars Hovbakke Sørensen.
as the queen's grandchildren, to grow, majesty increasingly opened their eyes to the modern children's and youth culture, and it is probably the reason why she for the first time in 47 years, she has held nytårstaler, spoke directly to the children and young people.
the Queen usually include children and young people in his speeches, but this year she spoke directly to them, and it has clearly aroused the enthusiasm. In this way, the speech part, for other than forældregenerationen, and the advice she gave to young people, was direct and well-intentioned, believe Hovbakke.
- Queen Margrethe takes its duties seriously and has no intention to slow down, says Lars Hovbakke Sørensen
Last but not least, all those who had thought that, after prince Henry's death was to hear the queen's speech to slow down a bit and delegate more to the crown prince and crown princess, disappointed.
- Queen Margrethe has said it before, and did now solid, cast in stone: She takes his duties seriously and have not going to slow down and retire. She appears to be strong and shows that she remains the 'mother in her own house - she is still a director in the business. It is also typical of her that she only spoke very little about prince Henry, and that it happened quite lately in the speech. Secondly, she is not a man who airs his grief publicly, on the one hand she is serious when she says that one should not put themselves first. The queen is stressed here, that she has obligations to his people, and what she might have of the challenges may come in the second row, says Lars Hovbakke.
