Amalienborg – "the Queen has left the building"

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Explanation of the title for the uninitiated:
It's in dependence on the saying "the King has left the building", which is a phrase that was often used by public address announcers following Elvis Presley concerts to disperse audiences who lingered in hopes of an encore. It has since become a popular culture catchphrase and punchline.
Al Dvorin, a spokesman who traveled with Elvis during his entire career, made this saying popular because his voice was heard on many recordings of Presley's performances.

Yes indeed, what is Queen Elisabeth doing in Copenhagen?  Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Thanks for the visit with L!
