What in the hell is going on in this portrait of Denmark's royal family?

Here's the official description of Thomas Kluge's horrific masterpiece.

In Kluge's painting the royal couple is depicted in a gilt rococo settee surrounded by their sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren, all in everyday clothing. The present and future monarchs, H.M. The Queen, T.R.H. The Crown Prince and Prince Christian, all make eye contact with us, while their family members are portrayed in their own universe, unprovoked by the gaze of the spectator. The children are at play with the exception of the upright and severe Prince Christian who seems aware of his future responsibilities.

The first thing I thought when I saw the portrait was "Did VC Andrews put out another novel from beyond the grave?" That painting looks like the families pictured on the back of her novels.
