Aren't the orders granted just before a State Visit so the guests can wear them at the Gala Dinner? I think that how it is done in Spain, but I may be wrong... I've seeing pics of the RF and their guests interchanging gifts (including orders) at the welcome on the first day.

Usually yes but sometimes they where also given out at official Visits or because of other reasons.

We're back.

First Copenhagen's Boy's Choir will sing, then another speech.

GALLERI: De kongelige til gallataffel på Christiansborg | Billed Bladet
BB gallery.
Queen Letizia is praised in an article in BB.

A Sumaja Jwxo asked TV2 why non-European families are not invited.
Basically because the event is held en familie. i.e. within the greater related circle and personal friends.

Next course has been served but the cameras will be turned on again in 25 minutes.

With Queen Mathilde as usual being the very definition of elegance.

Crown Prince Frederick did a wonderful job with the speeches earlier and I really like the personal touch wishing King Philippe a happy birthday.

Ps hope they didn't give Queen Letizia wine or coffee

Dear mother, you have insight, wit and intelligence. You must know that no matter what the future will bring, you will at any time have my very highest respect".

how lovely
The queen looked pleased and they gave each other a nice hug

I might be mistaken but isn't Queen Maxima also wearing the Order of the Elephant?

Yes, she is. They both got it at the beginning of their recent state visit.
And Frederik and Mary got the highest Dutch order.

I must say that our Crownprince speach was well done. He has often been so insecure but this time he nailed it :-)

Yes, I read too that Letizia let slip that she's a teetotaler. No coffee or alcohol passes her lips. She only pretends to drink.

The King and Queen of Spain and the Queen of the Belgians wore their Sashes and don't have any Danish Decorations.
Only King Philippe , King Willem Alexander and Queen Maximo wore rhe Elefant Order.

letizia's dress is nothing special, but i guess the tiara makes up for it.

i really liked maxima's dress. it's very her! and how fab that her and W-A are both wearing their new danish sashes - great timing!

i hardly think she was imitating her... as if she knew what mary was going to wear! (or the same goes for mary towards the PM) Had they known they were going to wear almost identical dresses, i'm pretty sure they would have chosen something else!

In my defense I'd say that was the headline in BT.

Here is a nice pic of mother and son: http://www.billedbladet.dk/sites/bil...?itok=2D2bcWyV
