How nice to see the pictures of Marie's parents attending the gala. Was Monsieur Grassiot (spelling?) not on the guest list?

My favorite parts of these events have been:
1. Seeing Crown Princess Mary's new jewels at the Gala (even if I don't like them and she may not even own them).
2. Seeing Frederick & Mary's kids act up at the military parade.

My least favorite part of the events:
1. QMII's fashions!

If this is true it's almost like Ugly Bridesmaid Dress Syndrome where the bride picks out something truely heinious so that she looks good by comparison.

Agree with you Madame Royale She could at least put here hair up, maybe that would look a litle bit better...

On another post, did see Monsieur Grassiot with his wife and her former husband, Marie's father. They were all there and looked like they were having a good time together at one of the tables.

Marie's mother attended with her husband as well as Marie's father. There are a couple of pictures of her parents arriving, just one with all three standing by a table (I expect they were waiting for the arrival of the royals).

Her mother dresses in an elegant manner. Both men in regular black tie, conservative.

Prince Frederick in velvet jacket and Prince Joachim in something resembling brocade or cut velvet with a multicolored cumberbund. Personally think that J went over the top with the outfit, way too much.

Ladies were conservative, but nothing really spectacular. Marie looked demure, with a remarkable figure for just having had a child, but the style of the dress was terribly old fashioned despite the beautiful fabric. One picture showed a nice view of the back of the dress, which seemed to trail behind in a graceful way. Must admit, nice change from the purple she's been wearing to all gala events. Mary's dress also a very plain attempt at grecian style, soft coloring. Overall BLAH in my opinion.

I agree, she should had worn her hair up similar to Princess Alexandra SWB. I didn't care for the gown either. It just hanged on her. I was not impressed with her this outfit nor the one she wore to the concert either.

Though this was to be an elegant party, preceded by pregala events, I can't say that anyone had the fashion sense of a Princess Diana or other fashion notable. They simply don't have IT. The gowns for the most part, were predictable, some even gaudy.

Even Alexandra's one shoulder dress had an awkward angle across the top of the bodice which, in my mind, spoiled the whole effect. Nothing that was really stunning. What a shame.

They need better designers --- or something.

Royal guests were invited only for the first evening as the Duque and Duchess of Castro, The Duke and Duchess d' Orleans , but at the second day I saw at the royal dinner at the Queen and Prince Henrik's table Princess isabella von and zu Liechtenstein. She wore no tiara.

In the Point de vue of this week I saw at last a whole page of the Royal Dinner . The Queen and the Prince where at each end of the table. Of course a lot of beautiful chinas and silver. The Queen had on her left side Prince Haakon of Norway and the Prince had on his right side Queen Sonja of Norway. At this table were also sitting Princess Benedikte and Princess Isabelle von und zu Liechtenstein. The man sitting on the right side of the Queen should bemore important than prince Haakon , but I did not know him and same for the other guests.
What I saw on the table was for each guest a small dark blue box , which was for everybody a present on this special event.
Personnaly I regret that Mary's loan tiara stole the show.
In Point de vue I saw more pictures of the Prince and the one where Prince Henrik entered before the Queen , which was always the contrary , the Consort after the Queen.
