Re: Amalienborg Slot Complex
The surrounding evirons, i.e., other non-palatial buildings, seems like it would be a security nightmare. However, I know the public can pass through the palace complex but it just seems so low security. I'm always thinking of Olof Palme in this regard.
It is correct that the surrounding buldings are not part of Amalienborg. There are a few garrages and staff residences in the side buildings.
The reason Prince Joachim probably does not have an appartment at Amalienborg is that he lives 15 minutes away in a huge house. Previously he lived at Schackenborg.
Judging from her activities, it seems that Princess Benedikte now spends most of her time in Denmark, though no official announcements have been made about this.
That is interesting that the palace is surrounded by various buildings/offices not associated, I gather, with royal compound. It is also interesting that Prince Nikolai has a flat, as you say, but his father, Prince Joachim, may or may not.
When Queen Ingrid died and her residence/palace was eventually handed over to the CP couple, Frederik and Mary,therefore, what happened to her effects/personal belongings?
Moreover, how is the palace complex assigned to different members of the royal family, e.g., Princess Benedikte, Prince Joachim, etc?
Schack's / Christian IX's Palace: The Queen
Brockdorff's / Frederik VIII's Palace: The Crown Prince and Crown Princess
Levetzau's / Christian VIII's Palace: Princess Benedikte, Queen Anne-Marie and Prince Nikolai. I am not sure if Prince Joachim still has a flat there.
