    DENMARK IS BUSILY
    PREPARING FOR ITS SECOND ROYAL WEDDING IN EIGHT MONTHS. NEXT SATURDAY (3
    FEBRUARY) PRINCESS BENEDICT WILL BE MARRIED TO THE GERMAN PRINCE RICHARD CASIMIR
    KARL AUGUSTA OF SAYN-WITTGENSTEIN-BERLEBURG. THIS SATURDAY (27 JANUARY) THE
    PRINCESS, SECOND DAUGHTER OF KING FREDERICK AND QUEEN INGRID, AND HER FIANCE
    DROVE IN HONOUR THROUGH COPENHAGEN TO ATTEND A CIVIC RECEPTION IN THE CITY'S
    TOWN HALL.

    THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS DROVE THROUGH THE CITY ESCORTED BY ROYAL HUSSARS AND
    CHEERED BY HUNDREDS OF SPECTATORS ALREADY WARMING TO THE EVENT. AT THE TOWN HALL
    THEY WERE HENRY STJERNQUIST.

    THERE TOO WERE PRINCE RICHARD'S RELATIVES TO BE - KING FREDERICK IX, QUEEN
    INGRID, CROWN PRINCESS MARGRETHE (WHO MARRIED LAST JUNE), AND PRINCESS
    BENEDICT'S YOUNGER SISTER, PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE, WHO IS MARRIED TO KING
    CONSTANTINE OF GREECE. PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE ARRIVED FOR THE WEDDING ON JANUARY
    24, BRINGING WITH HER TWO CHILDREN, PRINCESS ALEXIA, AND PRINCE PAUL.

    PRINCE RICHARD, AGED 32, IS THE SON OF PRINCE GUSTAV ALBRECHT AND PRINCESS
    MARGRETA OF SWEDEN. HE NOW LOOKS AFTER THE FAMILY'S EXTENSIVE ESTATES IN
    BERLEBURG, A SMALL WESTPHALIAN TOWN. PRINCESS BENEDICT IS 23.

    THE WEDDING WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE CHAPEL OF FREDENSBORG PALACE, THE ROYAL
    FAMILY'S SUMMER RESIDENCE. THE COURT HAS SAID IT WILL BE A FAMILY AFFAIR, BUT
    THE DANES HAVE PLANNED A WEEK OF PUBLIC FESTIVITIES TO CELEBRATE THE EVENT.
