Because Queen Margrethe is troubled standing for so long, she sat on a fine chair upholstered in red fabric, the same colour as her elegant dress.
No one arrived after the Queen, she is always the last. Unfortunately, a few guests were a little late and had to enter another entrance. Before the guests finds their seats in Banquet hall
As etiquette prescribes, the royal family members arrives in a specific order -first Princess Benedikte, then Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, now Frederik and Mary and as the last one the Queen arrives
Met by the press, journalists and photographers, they expressed their excitement to take part in the dinner.
Around 6:30 pm. local time, the first guests arrived to Christiansborg Castle. All women dressed in magnificent floor length dresses and classic suits for the men.
340 special guests were invited to last nights gala dinner. Representatives, all of which deals with art and culture in Denmark from designers to actors and singers
But it makes great sense, because when the Queen back in 2009 hosted the same event the Crown Prince couple also attended.
 knew that the Queen would host a dinner at Christiansborg Castle but I came as a surprise to me that Frederik and Mary also would attend

  1. Mary toujours élégante, fait intéressant elle a fait transformer son collier en diadème. C'est le collier qu'elle portait l'an dernier à Aarhus pour le 75ième anniversaire de la reine Margareth.

  5. La princesse héritière Mary est absolument ravissante. J'aime moins la tenue un peu trop vieillotte de sa belle-soeur, la princesse Marie, d'autant plus qu'elle la porte avec un soulier à bout ouvert (pour moi, ça ne va pas avec une tenue de soirée, spécialement comme celle-ci). La reine Margrethe est très élégante mais je suis surprise, il n'y a donc personne pour prendre le manteau de fourrure de la reine?

  7. Some captivating evening looks in Denmark…
    Margrethe: looking perfect from head to toe. Evening wear is her strength. A very flattering gown!
    Mary: exquisite, on trend gown- although the yoke has the “sarong” effect of visually lowering the bustline. Great tiara hair. Would love to have seen larger earrings with this simple neckline, also a bigger bracelet, to lift the black.
    Marie: For me, Marie hasn’t yet found an evening gown style that is really “her”. This one is fair enough, but the total fabric effect looks heavy, not light enough somehow, on her petite frame. Great tiara hair, earrings and brooch.
    Benedikte: trendy, modern and flattering. Way to go, Benedikte!
    Natalie: :(, the colour is lovely on you--but please, sack the stylist who talked you into this concoction. Be inspired by your earlier gorgeous and flattering gowns for your next event!

    1. Agreed on all points!

    2. I still have a silver coin commemorating the wedding of Benedicte's wedding, which I received from a Danish girl I had met in Paris in July 1966. Waaaaaaaay before the internet and all that, and we managed to keep in touch, me in Canada, she in Denmark, and I sent her a wedding gift, which prompted the silver coin of Benedicte's wedding in return.

  8. Mary has so very beautiful new tiara, I have been waiting to see it as a tiara since first saw it as a a necklace. Looks as antique tiara in my eyes. It is lightyears prettier than her wedding tiara.

    I do not like Mary´s dress here. Marie has nice dress.

  9. Benedikte's phenomenal man, way to go Ma'am!

  10. Marys dress is nice, but would have been even better with a black slip then we wouldn't have seen the bad sewn incision under her breast. It's nice to see her using her necklace as a diadem too...kind tired of that she always have used one of the big diadems. Nice to see a small sweet and feminine one on her. Loved it!

  11. I don't like Mary's dress. It looks cheap, especially the skirt part. I like Marie's dress but i am a bit tired of all those lace dresses. I Would have loved to see a simple black dress on her.

  12. Mary looks stunning! Love the dress and the new tiara! Wow! Her hair and makeup was as expected gorgeous.

    Benedikte is as always was beautifully groomed and elegant. Love her dress.

    Marie, is well... beautifully groomed, but the gown is the wrong shape for her frame. I wish Marie would hire a stylist to help her direct her in better choices of gowns for her petite frame. If you are petite, you are petite - you have to go with the flow! It doesn't matter how many dresses with peplums you purchase, you will not look taller!

    Natalie's gown was I think an unfortunate choice is style and [maybe colour] although her makeup and hair looked lovely.

    And finally Queen Margrethe, was her regal self, what more can I say.
