Grief is dealt with differently but I still cannot see how those young men held themselves together through it all.
My condolences to the Danish Royal Family and the citizens of Denmark.
: I don't get this inspection of flowers and
: other tributes. It reminds me of those
: idiotic scenes after Diana died when people
: felt their emotions of loss were more
: important than those of the two young men
: who had just lost their mother and now
: needed to be paraded in front of the
: camera's to satisfy the needs of that public
: who in most cases had never truly met Diana
: let alone be close to her.
: 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.
