Olsen, Wilbek, Mads and Viggo as knights

19:37 - 15 apr. April 2010 | Kate Bluhme

Tomorrow, on the the Queen's 70th birthday, a new wave of Danes will be decorated.

Film and theater
Movies and plays are represented by a couple of the best Danish actors:

Mads Mikkelsen and Viggo Mortensen could both call themselves Dannebrog knights from tomorrow. The same can be filmmaker Peter Flinth.

Is Viggo allowed to accept an actual knighthood, becoming Sir Viggo, being that he's dual citizen of Denmark and the U.S.? I understand that when Queen Elizabeth gives knighthoods to American citizens they are normally honorary.

I think because he is as far as the Danish are concerned he is Danish because of his father and his dual nationality, it'll be a full Knighthood.

That's supposing that he's already there, or can reach it by train -- with the airways closed down due to the Icelandic volcano...

If it is like here, the Honour is announced on the day/day before the birthday or New Year, but the actual ceremony can be months later.

How cool! He deserves so many accolades so it's nice to see one actualized. *squees in delight*

Sir Viggo has a rather nice sound to it doesn't it?

It really does! :)
