    1. Nope! In Sweden we have princess Madeleine.

    2. Madeleine is attractive, but nothing special. I never understood the hype over her looks. I she was not royal she would be considered just another pretty girl.

  3. La Reine est très élégante. Quant à la princesse héritière Mary, comme c'était le cas pour la princesse Marie il y a quelques jours, je ne trouve pas cette couleur de circonstance pour la période de l'année. J'ai préféré nettement sa récente tenue dans le velours et dans les tons de bleus.

    2. Je ne comprend pas pourquoi mon post n'a pas passé.
      Je demandais tout simplement pourquoi cette personne parlait d'abdication quand on sait bien que la reine Margaret a toujours dit qu'elle n'abdiquerait jamais.

  11. Mary's pearls are outstanding. She is a regal per usual, but I would have taken the belt off.
    I don't know if it's just me, but I fond the Queen related, at ease almost relieved without Prince Henrik by her side. Anyway the three of them represent Denmark beautifully.

  12. Why was Prince Henrik not present?

    1. An official statement recently made on the Queen's behalf by Denmark's Royal Palace confirms that after 40 years service, Henrik, 81, has "decided to retire" and "slow down."

    1. "Snow White" - well said, Anon 22:05!
      For me, this is an unexpectedly youthful look on Mary. The simplicity of the white gown, combined with a "half-down" hairstyle, has a "debutante" feel which I would usually associate with a junior princess. And there could hardly be a greater contrast between the minimalism of Mary's look and the lavish textures of the Queen's outfit.
      However Mary's look is growing on me. It does showcase the necklace and the orders in a way that many busier frocks don't. And the white colour looks fresh in the line-up, next to the black and the blue of Frederick's and the Queen's outfits. My one wish would be for a pink/mauve coat or cape, rather than the grey one which to me looks too dull in that room full of brightly-coloured clothing.

  14. Why do they remove the right glove and leave the left on?

    1. They remove the right glove to enable them to shake hands

      Delete
    2. Theytake off the right glove so that they can shake hands

      Delete
    3. To shake hands.

      Delete
    4. Because they are are shaking hands with their right hand.

      Delete
    5. I think the criticism of Marie's dress as being more suited for summer had more to do with the short sleeves of the dress than the colour.

      Delete
    6. The protocol requires wearing gloves, but it's considered unpolite to shake hands with a glove, hence the keeping the glove in the other hand

      Delete
    7. The royals shake the hands of the diplomatic corps at this event, hence, no glove on the right hand ;-)

      Delete
    8. Perhaps it is more politey to shake hands without a glove?

    10. What they are doing is considered INCORRECT etiquette. A lady (especially a royal lady) SHOULD wear gloves while shaking hands with anyone, as the glove is meant to protect her hand from perspiration and dirt. A gentleman may only shake a lady's gloved hand if he is wearing clean WHITE or KID dress gloves and formal attire - if he is wearing a different type of glove then he should remove them before shaking her gloved hand.

      A man should never offer a gloved hand, even a white or kid glove, to a lady who is NOT wearing gloves - he should remove BOTH gloves before shaking her hand so that she doesn't have the unpleasant sensation of shaking a glove with her bare hand.

      A person of either gender should remove BOTH gloves, and never walk around with only one glove on.

      The scene pictured is thus incorrect etiquette in several respects (except for that of the CP, who is wearing both gloves and greeting a man who is also wearing both gloves).

      I have many etiquette books from various periods including modern and several cultures, European and others, and they all agree regarding gloves and shaking hands.

      The image of the Queen's bare hand in the gloved hand of the man immediately jumped out to me as perplexing, before I even saw these many comments about it. Perhaps this is another effort by the modern royals to seem "approachable" or informal? Which is hardly necessary and even strange in formal attire at a formal event.

    11. In the United Kingdom a lady does not remove her glove/s to shake hands but a gentleman does and it has to be taken off finger by finger!

    12. This is about an event in Denmark - why the need to teach us correct etiquette in the UK............?

  15. the coat smells Prada to me..hmm

  16. All seem to love CP Mary in white.
    Princess Marie was criticized for wearing white as "more wedding dress" and "suited for summer".

    1. Marie had sleevles white gown of chiffon or other very lightweight material, Mary´s dress has long sleeves and is thicker material. White Color was not what made Marie´s dress look like a summer dress.

    2. You are right, some gets away with everything and are always so perfect like Mary and Victoria, and some are always wrong no matter what like Marie, Kate, Mette and Sofia! Gets so tired of this bullshit...

      Delete
    3. There is a lot of differences with the dresses, Marie has no sleeves and it is in evening while Mary has sleeves and is in the morning, it was not the colour that made Marie's look unsuitable more the type of material.

  17. hmm crown princess mary looks lovely looking lovely

  18. @Coco Ambros
    I think Maries sleeveless and lacey dress was more wedding dress and suited for summer but Mary's sleeved one doesnt have the same look...

  19. I agree with you, Coco Ambrose! Just show the hypocrites that leave comments on this blog.

  20. I wish she had worn a cape instead of a coat draped over her shoulders.

  21. Mary looks wonderful and the pearls fantastic.

  22. Another point of etiquette is that the royal family are the hosts and should thus "receive" the corps, not the other way around... The corps should file past the royals and be greeted by them, not the royals file past the corps. The only occasions that the royals should move along and greet stationery persons (be "received" by them) is when the royals are guests in another country or when the royals are touring their own country to meet their citizens.

    This scene appears to be the royal family being received by a corps of hosts, which is quite incorrect, especially in diplomacy where protocol is important.

    1. So are you here to teach the danish Queen and her court about what should be the etiquette in their own country? You sound a bit childlish for me.

      Delete
    2. The Danish Queen and her court choose to break with etiquette and protocol. Because they do doesn't mean that this is considered correct, just that they have chosen to do so.

      You sound a bit snide for me.

      You are also off-topic.

    3. They inspect the guard and shake hands with the officers, but when receiving the diplomats they are stationary while the guest file past.

  23. Mary est royale, j'aime beaucoup sa coiffure ondulée et magnifiques perles

  24. She looks so elegant....simple elegance and perfection, great start for this 2016

  25. Mary radiates warmth and directs herself towards the people. I have a feeling her mother in law is going to hold onto that throne forever and Mary stays classy and cheerful and has wonderful style. It would be nice if older royals could relinquish their thrones to the next generation like the Queen of the Netherlands did. Why not step back and relax?

  26. Beautiful! The bag is a new Naledi Copenhagen clutch, called Allana ;) Same colour ostrich as Mary's older Naledi clutch, but a new model.

  27. Almost all female royals today are like a barbie doll with new dresses from an exclusive designer showing us all other glamour we can not afford to have our own.
    This spectacle is what our taxes goes to.....fairytales dresses.
    Mary is probebly very nice in her own way,but there seems to be a lot of a fashion industry around her and nothing more than just PR for danish designers and other as well.....is that okej as work for a state?

    1. And so it has always been, so what? Even Queen Victoria did this. First of all, they don't pay that much for these dresses. They have big dicounts. Everybody knows this, they even get a lot of free stuff! Why do we never see these excuse me for saying this...stupid remarks when we talk about the old Queens like Elisabeth, Margrethe, Sonja or Silvia? They do NOT use less money on their wardrobe or less designer clothes, but get away with it, the other CP/P...NOT!

    2. I don't see Queen Margreth or Princess Marie propping up the fashion industry.
