It's still a holiday of sorts though since sailing is his hobby and his hobby isn't considered work. In the least it's not something that is on his official calendar, so it is a holiday/vacation of sorts.

If Frederik were missing the King's birthday because of an official duty, like a UN to Africa or an economic mission to France or something like that, that would be one thing.

Do they sail in the evenings when it's dark? Could Frederik not leave for a few hours to attend the gala dinner? Then return to the sailing competition for first thing tomorrow morning? I'm sure he could arrange to have a private plane waiting for him.

To me it's a lot of a unsubstantiated reasons for shirking an event that is pretty significant. How would it have been if the King of Sweden has missed Frederik's wedding to go sailing -- or a sailing competition? It would've looked bad, and it looks bad here.

the first photos are available here at gettyimages:

http://editorial.gettyimages.com/sou...%7c0&p=7&tag=1

all the ladies, as far as i can see are looking lovely. rosario of bulgaria is wearing a black dress, looks like a valentino. mette marit is wearing a black-green dress and mary is wearing her engagement green dress. princess lillian, as elegant as always is wearing black and some lovely jewels. can't wait for the rest to arrive.

it's great to see that the boyfriends of the princesses and prince are there as well. a nice ocassion for them to go "official". is that emma pernald arriving with jonas?

I like CP Mary hairstyle and Queen Sonia dress, one of her best dress IMO. Princess Mette-Marit and Prince Haakon looks happy and he is soo handsome.
Nice dress for CP Maxima. I love colour scheme of brown and turquoise.

I really like Mette-Marit's dress. Very different from her usual style. She has looked absolutely radiently happy this week, both in Switzerland and here.

Thank you so much to everyone who has posted these wonderful photos. So far I don't really care for many of the dresses, except Mary's. I think Rosario's dress is pretty, but she looks so thin and unusually disheveled, for her. Maxima looks amazing given the kind of day she has had! Does anyone know if we'll have pictures of the Swedish Royal Family tonight?

I think that Mary looks amazing! She might be a lit bit pale, but otherwise perfect. Maxima also looks great, but Mette-Marit is not looking her hottest in my opinion.

love mary's hair, and PH looks very handsome, PM looks very pretty (not sure i'd wore the pin, distracts from the detail on the dress neckline.)
absolutely love rosario's dress, emma looks very pretty and happy- really HATE PMM dress either the belt or the padded shoulder thing bothers me but i like her in the dark green. QS beautiful as always and the lady on the far left in the lavender (martha?) thats a lovely color and i like the way it drapes with the matching wrap. thanks so much for the great photos.

Mary's dress is a repeat but she looks lovely! I really like her earrings. Maxima is just absolutely glowing with that smile. Her dress is different but I like it. I think Jonas looks so handsome in his tux. Daniel, for one evening, could you have left the glasses at home?

I hope to see Victoria and Madeleine in new, beautiful dresses for their father's 60th birthday gala!

This is so exciting. We havent had this large of a royal gathering in a while. Everyone looks really nice, except for MM's dress is too baggy. But Maxima is stunning as always, Rosario and MC look great too. Very nice to see Emma, Jonas and Daniel attending. I hope we get to see the family soon!

Seeing Mary makes me proud beeing a dane!

I think she is amazing - it's not an easy task to visit your husbands family alone with your father in law and still look as if you like it...
