Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen

I hadn’t realised at the time but the Amalienborg Palace, (Kogenlige Slot,) Copenhagen, the winter residence of the Danish Royal Family, is actually four identical facades surrounding a central space.

It makes this stitch I made of my first two photos a bit unnecessary. The building isn’t really bent, of course:-

The guards have an odd posture. They march – and stand – with arms folded:-

These two didn’t have arms folded, though. (This is a video. Click on picture to get to the video):-
