Second New Year’s Court Takes Place in Denmark

  January 3, 2017 at 1:09 pm by

The second day of New Year’s Courts has been held in Copenhagen this morning, with Queen Margrethe II welcoming the members of the diplomatic corps to Christiansborg Palace.

Takin place in the Riddersalen, 75 of the ambassadors currently stationed in Denmark greeted the royal family – which today was limited to the Queen and the Crown Prince Couple – many in the national dress of their respective countries.

Queen Margrethe donned her own ‘costume’ for this event – a navy blue brocade evening gown with brown fur trim around the neck and wrists. Crown Princess Mary opted for a redone silver gown she first wore in 2008, however this time the matching jacket was left off and the bodice had been changed to plain silver silk (not this blogger’s favourite of Mary’s dress renovations).

    I have never minded when the royal ladies redid a few of their favorites. It makes sense, and they get more use out of their favorite outfits. Princess Diana did that more than most people realize.

    She would even redo some of her pregnancy clothing into regular day wear. Maybe CP Mary could consult some of Diana’s old designers for hints. Mary has on a beautiful shade of silver. Blogger is right though, the plain is too jarring with the lacy part of the gown. But the design is very attractive.

    The Queen is wearing her jacket over the sash,it may not be a gown.
