Possibly the best use of a Royal Guard I've ever seen.


FlaredMeteor940

I couldn’t agree more.

i fockin lov my country


King_Geedroah

Correction : Denmark's royal guards escorting the royal duck of the queen.


suicidesalmon

Her majesty, Duck of Denmark


King_Geedroah

A very fine quaking day for her excellence to go for bit of a splash in the local dUcks


PancakeZombie

Queen Of Duckmark


TheRealTahulrik

Well her nickname is Daisy afster all!


MrNiceGuy-92

that's ducking good


Nevarro_

A group of tourists escort Queen of Denmark's royal guard to Her Majesty.


Smingowashisnameo

That’s what I was noticing. Makes it even better.


shebeogden

There is an unwritten rule that when humans of any size, age, or location are attempting to herd any small animals, you must position yourself with your hands slightly out palms forward.


ieatmypeaswithhoney

Who knew? And the added level of the white gloves! So dramatic.

The Duck Assassins have been foiled again!


Articulated

Meanwhile, a goose is scaling the walls of the Palace while everyone's backs are turned.


Nairurian

The royal guard suspected fowl play.


Fmarulezkd

An obvious attempt from the norsks.


aguynoonereallylikes

That duck is the queen of Denmark actually


suicidesalmon

Can't wait for her new year's speech this year.


iamprettierthanyou

Every duck should get this treatment


eccarina

I opened the original post and didn’t understand anything. Top comment said “fuck” at the end so I imagine Danes are upset.


rmp2020

Danes say fuck a lot. It's probably our favourite swear word, because it can be used in so many contexts, like in the top comment of the original post where it's used to underline how cute ducklings are. Fuck.


EuropeanInTexas

As a Dane who moved to the US I had to learn to limit my use of "Fuck". In Denmark fuck isn't really a ***bad*** word where in the US people will look at you like you kicked an orphan puppy if you use it in every day talk.


Boo_Rawr

Ah so that's why Princess Mary fit in so well over there...


suicidesalmon

Oh god I hope you're not joking, because it says that ducklings are cute and the "fuck" is just cementing the fact that they're so damned cute lmao. The best part about this video is the fact that it was posted by the official Danish royal house's Instagram profile. (yes, that's a thing, apparently)


eccarina

Hahahahaha I was thrown off by all the danish and just thought it was funny to make it up


suicidesalmon

I figured, it was almost too perfect to not be a joke but you definitely had me for a sec there! But I don't blame you, our language is a mess.


Apolloshot

Na, that comment is basically saying ducklings are the amongst the cutest things on Earth.


wilsontarbuckles

Hvor søde 🥺

My feelings exactly. 😊


FreQRiDeR

Good time to storm the castle ;)


suicidesalmon

It was their plan all along! Arm the birds! Time to get revenge for all the dry old bread!


Certain_Technician_4

if it were an british guard they'd stomp them like Goombas


Haggistafc

Damn straight.


MrPapis

Haha the thing is they wouldn't do this on their own 100% some officer or sergeant ordered them to do this. Can you imagine being on your 4 hour break called out to herd some ducklings! All I want to know now is if they walked in formation out and back, I bet they did!


Osharlock

dem uniforms are on point though


keyserv

"Remember your training, soldiers!"


sarawhite101

I love to see people who take care of animals🥰🥰🥺


formeraide

I've heard that Danes are not happy that the song uses the (sort-of) German pronunciation of Copenhagen.


EmulsionPast

Can't speak for all Danes but I definitely prefer the "copenhay-gen" pronunciation in English, germanisation of Danish is a bit of a sore topic historically


suicidesalmon

I can see why but I'm also not sure how would make it sound better in English. The way I'm used to hearing Copenhagen pronounced kinda makes it sound like you're using our precious Æ, but we don't even spell it with that. In Danish it's called København. Best way to pronounce it how we spell it would be something like KOE-BEN-HAUN


a_spooky_ghost

Make way for the Queen's ducks!

There is no such thing as one singular Duke of Denmark... There are some dukes here, but like Duke of "some local area" not a Duke of the whole country.

Lortekonto

Only royals were and are given the title of Duke in Denmark.

Lortekonto

Yah, none of his children or grandchildren ended up being dukes. Those outside the royal line have all either been grafs or counts.

dontfightthehood

I find it amusing that ducks are getting white glove service.


BluntInit

THIS IS THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL DANISH MILITARY OPERATION THAT I KNOW OF SINCE THE GREAT HEATHEN ARMY. XD


jackinblack142

Meanwhile if it were English royal guards they'd just stomp all over them ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯


Toastie91

English Royal guards?


jackinblack142

Yeah, with the funny hats. Ever seen the videos of them just plowing over tourists and whatnot?


Toastie91

I'm sure the Scots Guards, Welsh Guards and Irish Guards would love to hear that they are English.


jackinblack142

Ah, I see. If I, as an ignorant North American, mislabeled the twats that "protect" the English palace and monarch, my bad.


Toastie91

England hasn't had a monarch since 1707.


jackinblack142

Aye bud, take it up with the semantics department at our failing public schooling institutions.

Why does the royal guard of Denmark have their own queen?

I am not crying... you are!

And?

Yep, that is indeed the Danish name for Duck


suicidesalmon

Exactly.
