they all seem SO close to the public (access-wise)...

I remember hearing that Bill Clinton was suppose to stay at one of the palaces in the complex when he was President, until the Secret Service realized how close it was to the public, and that idea was dismissed.

It's unlike any other royal palace, in that it's not a palace. Amalienborg is essentially 4 identical mansion houses that form the Amalienborg complex.

There is no beginning or ending, all four sides of the quadrant layout have an entrance/exit (the roads) leading to and from the square.

All four of the mansion houses occupy the same amount of space and garden (although as you can see the garden designs vary). Edit: Actually the houses not occupied by Fred or Marge seem to have a slightly deeper garden on one side, they are the 2 closest to the left of the screen.

I was a bit confused about it at first but I think it's a much more practical design than one huge palace. It's a beautiful design but it's so very open, it wouldn't work in London for security reasons.

Thanks tatty!
It does look like anyone can just stroll along the courtyard and take short cuts through the palace.

Re: the sink in the children's room.  I can't tell you how many times when my kids were (very) little I wished I had one.

Hate the murals. I do love the way they modernized the one stairwell. Honestly, that's the kind of place to do it. Not walls in grand rooms.

It is only paint so that decorative part of the room can easily be redone.
I think that Mary and Fred were very trusting in giving various artists free reign on their works.
The artists are quite different in style to each other too.

I like the way the paintings add contribution to the walls by modern artists.
It is a sign of the times. 
I don't find them all attractive but I never like all exhibits in any gallery.

This may be a silly question, but are the 4 palaces linked by underground passageways? Or does Yrma have to put on a fur coat in winter when she wants to go visit Daisy and the Dame in their palace? Thinking

IIRC from the time these photos were published that room is a kitchen.

The palace looks really bland  Blink and also quite ugly at times

I think Marie's house looks a lot chicer but generally speaking don't think the DRF has a wow factor or much timeless class they don't have elegance nor style IMO

Scandinavian design can look spectacular but not here

The pic that showed their kitchen looked like Ikea BLAND

The ceilings are not high compared with other palaces. Many of these rooms are lavishly decorated, but the actual space in the rooms isn't so different from what you'd get in a nice old town house or even apartment.

Odd to see bare hardwood flooring in a modern palace. It doesn't look varnished  Confused which detracts from the older ornate ornamentation IMO. I know the 'work in progress' look is fashionable  Snore

To my knowledge - and I may very well be wrong - it's not the children's room, no. This artist (her name escapes me) simply uses motifs like these. It's her style, it's what she paints. Personally, I don't like her art.

Anyone can walk, bike through the main palace square in front of the four palaces. If I recall right, it is set up as a pedestrian zone, with cars only for the palace visitors are allowed - which means that the regular Copenhagen traffic does not go through. The smaller gardens in the back of each palace are more private, although nearby tall buildings with windows facing the right ways can glimpse into these.

In the photo released at the twins first birthday we can see it is a kitchen:

 Part 1 of a DR 4 part documentary series called The Queen's castles with Margrethe as tour guide. Margrethe really looks fragile in the docu.
