Loss is a private thing. I get that when a Royal dies the Nation is involved but i see no need in parading relatives in front of the cameras more than is needed. That is why there is a funeral and those flowers and candles on the street are nice and loving tokens but not something that needs to be viewed or inspected by the nearest and dearest of the deceased.
: The funny thing is that the unexpected
: appearence by the royals and the relaxed
: atmosphere has been hailed a an example of
: the closeness to the Danish people that is
: being demonstrated (again) those days.
: One DR-reporter told that she had been
: surprised that the Cown Princess was
: suddenly standing next to her.
: If the police had started to try to move the
: very peaceful people who were there to pay
: their respect to the Prince and not least
: the Queen, it would have looked a bit odd.
: If the royals had wanted to be undesturbed,
: they could have inspected the tributes in
: the morning - or later when people had left
: the square.
: I was at Amalienborg and like at Fredenborg
: - where the Queen appeared yesterday to
: "inspect" the tributes - there was
: very, very little police. People were quiet
: and repectful, not making a big fuss out of
: it. I like this approach.
