This articles says that, even though the Queen announced that she was welcome, it was wise of Alexandra to not attend - the great question was apparently not how she would be received upon arrival (according to BB), but where she'd sit; not in the royal box, so where?
And it is obvious that the 'diary clashes' was a polite excuse, as the Countess seemed to spend all day at home, as did Martin.

There's also another article which is basically about how she said "thanks, but no thanks" to the invitation here:
TV 2 Vip - Alexandra sagde pænt nej tak
Thanks for the links, Alex001. I plugged the second article into my translator, and it kind of frustrated me when they said that even though the Queen declared that it was okay for Alex to go, Alex chose to defy the Queen (their words, not mine). The media just cannot drop this. They had to throw in a dig about Alex supposedly defying the Queen.

I agree, I think that the media really have hyped up this incident and blown it out of proportion, trying to turn it into evidence that the Queen hates the Countess, then that she's defying the Queen.

Was she dressed in some sort of traditional costume?

She wasn't! IMO it's just an attempt of dressing formally in the informal way! . When she was a princess with official duties, she normally wore a suit (jacket & skirt) made of a very structured material like tweed or one of the stiffer silks. Now she's into more informal (and younger )styles, made from softer, more figure hugging materials. The grey dress doesn't look Danish in style, but I could be wrong!

Odense Kommune - Grevinde Alexandra åbner Fyrtøjets nye scenografi
Fyrtojet's new set design will be opened by Alexandra on Saturday. There is apparently a problem with choosing a flower girl or boy, as everyone wants to be it, so they've decided that all the children will each give the Countess one flower stalk, which she can put together into a big bouquet when she goes home.

I like this idea! I don't think that I have ever seen this method before, but it is a great way for each of the children to be able to interact with Alexandra, even if it is just for a moment.

Does Alexandra still have Ladies-in-Waiting who accompany her to her engagements?

I think she's sometimes accompanied by Julie Vibe Michelsen, her private secretary, who, from what I have gathered, is the blonde lady you see in photos standing behind the Countess - although, thinking about it, I haven't noticed her since the ECCO Walkathon, so maybe she's left, I don't know. Then again, it may not even be her!

The idea about the bouquet seems to have worked, with Alexandra declaring it the best bouquet that she's ever received. I'm not sure whether or not I like the suit though.

There was a clip in the news; Alexandra appeared to be genuinely touched
by the thought behind the bouquet. The suit looks like an old tweed thing
revisited !

Very sweet picture! The little girl with the pacifier is beautiful. I am glad that the bouquet idea worked out. It was such a cute idea.

The countess seems to be busier now than right after her divorce, it's nice to see her on official engagments, she is a proffesional and does things well, (even a more natural than CP Mary, oops I didn't mean to compare, it just slipped out...and it doesn't mean that she is a better person, she seems to have more of a knack)

Yes, it's Alexandra you can see on that pic with Mary,

being at the same event..

Here are some more bigger pics

It's good to see them together again. They're former sisters-in-law.

On the last photo posted by iceflower Alex look still beautiful on her age I think.
