Great to see the members of the Nordic RFs on the balcony

Queen Margrethe and the whole family look great. Still a pity not to see Price Henrik there.

I assume the rest of the guest have leaved and won't be at the dinner tonight?

Arriving to the City Hall. There was a heavy wind and Marie got into a trouble with her hat.

Margrethe and F&M in the carriage through the streets of Copenhagen:

The Carriage tour:

Mary looks fantastic!!

At great HQ picture from the City Hall:
http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...argrethe75.jpg

There has just been a fantastic scene on TV2! After the royal family had walked inside Isabella herself open the big door, smiles and blinks to large crown of people, go back inside and close the door and you can see that she is dancing and jumping around inside. She is such a charmer


ADDED:

The TV2 commentators have just said that we will NOT get to hear Frederik's (and the other) private speeches at tonight's dinner. We did that at Margrethe 70th birthday. And it was a hit when Frederik held the speech and I will really miss it. But this year the Royal Family have decided to do it differently and actually we only will get to see the arrivals tonight.

Couldn't see the whole show live, but I've seen the balcony scene afterwards and there were a couple of details I noticed.

Bella drumming with her fingers on the banister in tune to the birthday song being played.
Vincent spooking his farmor, when he undaunted crawled up on the banister to get a better view. Fortunately cousins Nikolai and Felix were at hand to keep things under control.
Vincent isn't the son of a Frogman for no reason...

The very same cousins later filmed the crowd with their phones.

While mademoiselle Athena stood still and looked at the crowd Vincent couldn't see any reason to go inside after the final appearance. And why should he when all these people had shown up to see him?

But why nine hurrah's for the Monarch or Denmark?

That goes back to around the year 1600.
Well, the Danish ID signal back then was three shots with a cannon, and that was also used by navy ships when entering a port or encountering another warship..
That signal was also used by the army, like this morning at 08.30 when the Royal Lifeguard fired three shots at Fredensborg from their field pieces (lighter cannons).
When a Danish army went on the attack it was with three hurrah's as the battle cry. And three hurrah's were also used when a commander took over the command of an army or regiment.
But when the King took over command, it was 3x3 hurrah's and that tradition has remained until today.
(The Swedish ID is four shots and as a consequence four hurrah's).

However, the navy always want to outdo the army, so they decided to do better, by firing 3X9 shots in honor of the monarch. Later on the artillery adopted that salute as well.
The international salute for a monarch is actually 21 shots but Denmark does that one better.

ADDED: DR1 will cover the arrival of the guests from 19.00 - in four hours from now.

I think you are right.
Vincent should have green hair, that would make things so much easier.

When Vincent had to give up his good vantage point up (why do the adults always have to spoil one's good plans) he just found another solution

There was a ridiculously large amount of people at Amalienborg today – it was extraordinary, amazing and a little frightening at the same time

I think they were very generous with the balcony time, it was wonderful when QMII came out with her grandchildren, and it was so lovely to see members of the other Scandinavian royal families and the Queen's sisters appear on the balconies of Mary and Frederik's palace – there was a very funny moment where seemingly the entire crowd realised that they were there as well and then collectively turned away from QMII and Christian VIII's Palace to get a good look at the others as well

And I must say, Vincent climbing the baluster was moderately terrifying
