King Harald and Queen Margrethe seems to be enjoying themselves sitting next to each other :)

Prince Henrik's speech was very sweet.

^ Denmark's Prime Minister & Queen Margrethe

I also heard that CP Frederik would make a speech, but I don't know if it's been confirmed.

P Henrik's speech:
Prinsgemalens tale ved gallataflet - Kongehuset

Google translate:
I offer a warm welcome to all who are gathered tonight at Christiansborg Castle, an ancient symbol of the Danish monarchy. The purpose is to celebrate the Queen of Denmark's 40-year government jubilee. The monarch, who is also the 53 in a monarchy, there are over 1000 years old.

That the current ruler we celebrate tonight, my dear wife, make my joy even greater. We have over these 40 years shared many good and exciting things together, but also some difficult challenges. But always with dedication and sensitivity.

Dear Queen, dear wife, dear Daisy: I am the first man in the kingdom to admire you, and I also tonight interpreter for the entire company and across the nation who say congratulations to the Regent.


I welcome many members of our family from near and far, to heads of state from the north with strong family ties and friendship, welcome to the Danish government and representatives of the official Denmark.

All we will together with the Danish people celebrate a queen who has dedicated his life to Denmark and Greenland and the Faroe Islands. A ruler who has shown the greatest capacity to carry out his mission in life: to work for Denmark with "God's help, the people's love, Denmark's strength".

A woman who has had an exciting process for four decades with an inspiring energy, a great skill and considerable success.

Happy anniversary, as we all will make festive because we think you deserve to be celebrated. I ask all to rise and join me to participate in a toast to Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

Wow love Her Majesties gown it has a kind of Medieval look to it with the big sleeves, and we all know she loves a big sleeve. A beautiful colour and draped beautifully. She looks as always very regal tonight.

Thank you Danish Girl for Prince Henri's speech. Your time and effort are most appreciated.

Well I am not surprised about that. We never are.

But I expect the next speech to come before TV get back. They can't spend an hour eating fish...
I know they will show it later, but I would prefer it live. DR is showing nothing important anyway. (at least I don't think so )

Is that a recycled dress for Queen Silvia. Looks familiar ( CP Victoria's wedding? )

Queen Sonja & CP Mette-Marit both in white and beautiful

Here is a video that score top marks on the cute-scale:
VIDEO: Danmarks mindste garder - TV 2 Nyhederne

Watch only if you can handle it...
Wonder how the guardsman manages to keep his composure?

Thanks for the many pics. QMII looked even more regal than usual tonight. Elizabethan actually, a Renaissance-queen as one of you pointed out.
Put a hat with a veil on Mary's head and she would be almost medieval.
