Family members often acts as hosts/hostesses for tables and therefore are spread out among other guests. Thereby more guests will have someone "special" at their table.

The man with the stick is probably a master of ceremonies preceeding the royal couples and other special guests announcing their names upon entering the event.

Exclamation Flights cancelled due to volcano activities

Due to the activity of a volcano on Iceland the flights that usually cross this skyway were cancelled.

It's not sure if Crown Prince Haakon (who's currently in London, after returning from his visit to Qatar and UAE) will make it to the birthday celebrations.
Queen Sonja's flight has been cancelled as well.

I just read that many flights all over Europe (especially from northern Europe) were cancelled so it's likely there will be some more guests affected by this.

Oh yes,you're right I just saw it.Many,if not all flights,from Norway,the UK and several other cities in Europe to Copenhagen have been cancelled due to the vulcanic ashes.Apparently so has the flight of the Norwegian Royals from Oslo to Kobenhavn.
Can you confirm that yet HM?

It remains to be seen if Kastrup Airport Copenhagen will be open much longer due to this mess from Iceland

Yes, that's true. Queen Sonja is supposed to attend tonight's gala anyway. I guess they will try to bring her to Denmark anyway (maybe by car and ship).

She won't miss her best friends birthday for anything in the world!Good.

Oh,so true,today of all days there's this mess.

I hope most other flights with Royal guests won't be affected by this.
As you say,really too bad.

According to the list of departing flights from Stockholm no flights to Copenhagen have been cancelled (only flights to GB and Norway, as well as some domestically flights in Sweden).

I think from Stockholm it should be not so a big problem. Perhaps they can use either a train or Cars. It's more a problem for those wo have a bigger distance.

The official calendar of the Norwegian Royals only says that they will attend tomorrow's dinner:
Quote:
Anniversary of Queen Margrethe
Their Majesties The King and Queen attend the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Margrethe of Denmark. Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and The Crown Princess will also be in attendance.
I don't know if Haakon was supposed to attend today's gala at all. Maybe only Queen Sonja was supposed to do so. The official calendar doesn't list any of the Norwegian Royals to attend tonight's gala (right from the beginning). Let's see...
I hope the Royals will (at least) make it to tomorrow's dinner. The situation should be more calm tomorrow (MII's actual birthday and birthday gala).

Wonderful pictures from the events.
Didn't like Marie's gala dress.
It's a real shame about the flights to Denmark, i hope they can all attend the gala dinner.

It seems that most flights from Belgium and the Netherlands were also cancelled.
