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!
a reply to myself: felipe bought the tiara for letizia in 2005! so it took us 10 whole years to get to see it... special day indeed for us tiara lovers!

Spectacular speeches from both the PM and QMII (and Frederik, of course, I was really impressed with him as well ľ especially when taking the short amount of preparation time he had into consideration).

Is there a chance that Felipe, Letizia and Mathilde will receive the Order of the Elephant in connection to their attendance this evening or will that take a state/official visit to Denmark?

I didn't see him. Princess Benedikte was entering alone.

Why dosn't Monaco get invited to anniversaries in Denmark? They do in Sweden and Norway.

Right, the show is over for tonight.

But early tomorrow it starts again. QMII will be waken up by relatives and friends including grandchildren singing outside her bedroom window at Fredensborg.

There will be a balcony scene at Amalienborg at noon, followed by a carriage ride to Copenhagen Townhall, with another balcony scene.
And then a more private dinner tonight. I assume we won't see much if anything from the actual dinner but we will see guests arriving. So more bling bling coming up.

Both public networks will show virtually non-stop all day from around 08.30.
And with a little luck you can again watch the whole thing live on DR1.

Dear Muhler, I think we will see the speech from Frederik (and Henrik if he wasn't ill) and such - just like today?

The TV-Guide writes: Many Danes, including Queen Margrethe herself, probably looks forward to the speeches for her birthday. The Prince Consort and Crown Prince Frederik is among the first - and DR's Tine G°tzsche and Mark Stokholm broadcasts live from the celebrations.

Many thanks for all the pictures and links etc - what an amazing evening it has been!
Frederik's speech was wonderful and seemed full of warmth for his mother - and well deserved.
It is always nice to see the current Danish prime minister at these events - I wish ours looked like her!

I think it was commissioned in 2005 but Letizia only got the tiara as a gift for the 5th wedding anniversary in 2009.
