Re: Queen Margrethe and hyperkyphosis
Has this condition been known to affect other members of her family?
Quite visible in this (rather charming) video: https://www.facebook.com/detdanskekongehus/videos/2554781414751379/
A friend of mine is a high ranking civil servant and recieved his appointment by Queen Margrethe decades ago, and at that time she was taller than him. He met her again a few days ago and noted that he was now the taller of the two.
If you follow the Queen in the media, it is clear that she has trouble walking, have to hold on to things and sit down whenever possible. Another notable thing is that she is now smaller than Princess Benedikte, though she used to be quite a bit taller.
Though nothing official have been stated by the court, it seems she has inherited the steoporosis / hyperkyphosis-condidtion from her mother.
