It is 13 years ago, photographer Ulla Aue went on pension. Packed fototasken from his workplace through the 35 years, Billed-Bladet, Denmark’s royal magazine. However, some experiences still pricking out, has taken a good hold.
now then, she got a røffel of queen Margrethe.
Even though she through her many years as a photographer at the magazine has photographed the royal again and again, was Ulla Aues primary task is to follow on the heels of the crown prince, when he reached the kærestealderen.
It was him, her lens was zoomed in. Also the day, where Frederick was on official assignment with her mother.
“I was totally focused on him, so I went almost backwards, and so neither to the right nor to the left,” says Ulla Aue and laughing so.
“Right up until there was one that poked me in the shoulder.”
There, 30 cm behind her, stood the queen of denmark Margrethe.
‘Excuse me, but is it Them or me,’ it sounded so pointedly from the Queen.
“I got a shock. She stood straight up on my head. I had just pinned me behind without seeing anything other than the crown prince,” she says embarrassing. And find Margrethes cash reprimand in its place.
However, although Ulla Aue through the decades was a part of the permanent press corps, who followed in the heels of the royals, it was only rarely that she felt she came behind the facade of the governor.
“I experienced This more with the crown prince. But I have great respect for the Queen and know that she belongs to a completely different generation, where you would probably keep a little more on the shapes.”
Each of the times saw and experienced she is, however, a glimpse of the other Margaret. The more private.
“The times I was on the Cayx (vinslottet in France, ed.), I was pleased always to experience prince Henry, and her love for each other.”
“She always looked so in love with him, made sure all the time that he was with in it all.”
“I saw that she gave him the space he may not always be got at home,” says Ulla Aue, which also remembers a different experience, where the Queen really surprised her.
In 2005, was Ulla Aue virtually the only photographer on the field, when queen Margrethe visited the new archaeological findings on the island of Bornholm, namely the petroglyphs on the island’s cliffs.
“It was a liberating and amazing experience to see how she is – even with his bad knees and pain – quite literally threw himself down over the carvings, as she had not heard of before.”
“She was just so happy and so free, that she was largely not heeded me.”
“So true, I can’t recall having seen her before. She was totally engulfed.”
“I can remember, I thought that here I get a glimpse of the private queen. Not the official, in which she plays one or another role. She was liberating the liberated.”
