I wonder why a start-up visit was planned for her?....Frederik, yes, but QM??

I was actually wondering the same thing.  This type of event is right up Frederik's alley (or even Mary's alley as well).  I kind of thought the same with the visit to the hospital on day 1 tbh.

BB article with video of entire press conference 




It was about both the love for Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary's great efforts, the relationship with Germany and what, in the Queen's own words, insanely difficult German language and an unexpected challenge during the meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel, when Queen Margrethe met the Danish press on Friday morning.

BB is working OT:




The Queen's blunt statement about her cigarettes


The question was exactly how the Royal House could become more climate-friendly in the future.

I smoke without a filter

To which Queen Margrethe replied: 

- It's not so much a question of whether robots can pick things up. It's a matter of not throwing things away. And it applies to all of us that we should not. Such as shutters and the like. Now I belong to those who smoke without a filter, so it disappears the next time it rains, it sounded with a laugh that quickly spread to everyone around her. 


What does that mean about so it disappears the next time it rains?  Sometimes Google translate is a little dubious.
