• Great moments in monarchy


From the Copenhagen, Denmark, Post:

Queen Margrethe’s well-publicized nicotine habit nearly spelled the end of her son Prince Joachim’s wedding reception last weekend, according to the tabloid magazine Se og Hør.

One of the kitchen employees working on the newlywed royal pair’s reception dinner told the magazine that the queen and a few of her friends wanted to take a cigarette break in the confines of Schackenborg Palace. But the waitstaff refused to serve as long as there were smokers in the vicinity.

Prince Joachim allegedly spoke to his mother, who finally agreed that she and the others would, like the rest of her subjects, light up in the great outdoors.
