"Er, um, yes, well, right so, quite, well done, I suppose, yes, by jove, er, um, Darling?"
Well, if someone's going to get anything done in royal Denmark, it's up to the 73 year old, ailing queen. Henrik's off to Montreal to sell his swill, Fred's stuck to the floor of his dressing room with his valet trying to pneumatically remove the seal of the dried saliva connecting the wood floor to his mouth. Mary's off pilfering Copenhagen's finest boutiques so she'll have new frocks to wear in Australia, and the Schackenborgs have no doubt retreated to their quiet haven in the farthest reaches of the kingdom to continue teaching their children manners and reading skills (yay, lille Henrik! You can already read!).
So on the eve of Madam La Boganne's Looker Me! Tour #4,562 whereby the daughter-in-law from hell is essentially sitting in for Cousin Lillibet who inaugurated the Sydney Opera House in 1973, Daisy is taking extreme action. She has coordinated with the Bishop of the Anglican Church in Copenhagen to rid the country and their little parish of the Presbyterian, Pictish demons haunting both Daisy's royal thinggie and the British Royal Family's Australian thinggie. Granted, Daisy's British cousins don't have much longer down under, but why go out on such a sour note with Boganson hands out waiting for favours? But since everything came to such a strange and ugly head back in March 2012 when Mary's parents, the Sluuurrrrrrrrrrpsons, left their converted goat barn avec satellite dish in the shadow of the Chateau de Cayx and arrived at St. Alban's in order to be pulled from the crowds by court gray men in order to meet the Prince of Wales and his wife, then Daisy knew something had to be done. Mazza was flying high from the birth of the Miracle Twins and hadn't yet been subdued by Derfie's infidelity on the eve of the christening in April.
How grotesque and completely not at all comme il faut for Mary to slip her strange slurping parents into the spotlight. Sister had gotten too big for her Louboutins. Daisy knew well to strike not immediately after that March 2012 tragedy, which was the final straw in a series of gate-crashing incidents Jock 'Half-Mast' Donaldson and the Dumpling have participated in. Timed to proceed this next Looker Me! Tour, the juju should keep the Boganson spirits from haunting the DRF while Mary and Fred's carcass are soon in Sydney. Thanks, too, to Cousin Charles for agreeing to hold little George's christening just before the tour begins. Best of luck to all those in Oz affected by the recent wildfires, aka, devil revelry on the cusp of Maz's arrival for more Aussie publicity. Daisy will surely send a gift basket to the Anglican Archibishop in Australia to try to keep thattie in check. With Madam, she'll think the entire country has set up celebratory bonfires for her arrival back "home".

Queen Margrethe At Evensong
Queen Margrethe inaugurated the newly restored Anglican Church at Churchill Park in Copenhagen, and participated in the traditional Evensong.
It was an enthusiastic Queen Margrethe, who on Sunday afternoon arrived at 4:04 at St. Alban's Church, where restoration of the Anglican Church was celebrated.
The day marked the completion of the restoration work, which recently was conducted in the church , and so the queen came to participate in the so-called evensong.
The pulpit, altar and baptismal font in particular have undergone restoration, and was all that the Queen had occasion to look at when first she came in - after being received by Bishop Dr. Geoffrey Rowel and priests Jonathan Lloyd and Ulla Monberg.
Evensong, which means vespers and is still in reserve in the Church of England, consists of one or more David hymns, the Song of Mary and the Song of Simeon.
After the ceremony, which took about an hour, the Queen also signed the church's guest book - which in 1887 was first signed by Prince Edward and Princess Alexandra (born a princess of Denmark) in connection with the church's consecration.
Thanking Bishop Dr. Goeffrey Rowel

When Charles and Camilla were in Denmark to celebrate the Queen's (QEII) 60th Jubliee, they met Danish and Danish-based WWII veterans after church. What fine heroes!
D'oh! Then the furry, badly-dentured marsh people from Scotland's north shore presented themselves!
Look at Christian Eugen-Olsen pulling Camilla toward this strange couple on Mary's orders!
Camilla is a pro turning on a quick smile ...
...but keeps her distance. Good instincts, Cam!
There they are in the background with Daisy's master of ceremonies!
Hm, wonder if putting the Sluuuurrrrrrrppsons up front is why Christian Eugen-Olsen is the former master of ceremonies?
"Aye! While no one's looking, I'll throw some dirt, too, make it look like I'm on the A Team!"
"We are so IN."
