On March 14, 2012, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark was at the Livgardens Barracks at the Gothersgade in Copenhagen to attend the Queen’s Parade of the Royal Life Guards.
During the event Her Majesty presented the Dronningens Ur (Queen’s Clock) to Lars Ørgaard Nielsen for his dedication, service, and for basically being a super awesome Danish Royal Life Guard.

Meanwhile in magnificent Monaco, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II celebrated his 54th birthday. Unfortunately, it wasn’t exactly a relaxing day for the sovereign prince.
Why? Well, he participated in the conference, Territorial Governance of Water in the Mediterranean, in connection with the 6th Annual World Water Forum. Today’s event was in collaboration with the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco, Blue Plan, Veolia Environnement, International Office for Water and Unitar, and the Water Think Tank Méditerranée according to the Palais Princier de Monaco.
Finally, a new book entitled, South Pole: The British Antarctic Expedition 1910-1913, was released several days ago. Published by Assouline, the new book contains a foreword by Prince Albert II and Her Royal Highness Princess Anne.
Interested in purchasing this new 136 page waterproof book — yes, I said waterproof — well, it will only set you back a measly $3,000. Click here for more information.
