What does this party have to do with the global financial crisis? Not following.

Princess Mary wore a Vietnamese o di (long dress). She probably got it while in Vietnam. Queen Margrethe, as well, wore a court overcoat. Vietnamese court ladies in the olden days wore similar court dress over their o di. The colours and embroidery indicated ranks.
Prince Henry shirt was an adaptation of the Chinese shirt over their long dress for the men.
I was wondering why Mary and QM choose these dresses for this dinner.

Thank you so much for posting those pictures

It's always amazing to see Prince Henrik out with his pride - the grandchildren, he's such an attentive and loving grandfather, and you can see that the kids absolutely adore him. I have said it before and I'll say it again, what a character little Bella is! I love how she clearly was deathly bored when having to listen to people talk, Christian also yawned a couple of times but really tried to keep himself together and Nikolai and Felix were probably also a bit bored, but didn't show it. The pictures of Henri and Bella are absolutely precious, definitely my favourite DRF picture of the year.

What a great idea to bring the four with him, in previous years Prince Henrik attended the Elephant event with
Nikolai and Felix only. And they behaved so well! Some more pics can be found here:

It's good to see grandpapa Henrik with his grandchildren.
And as you can tell the weather here in DK has suddenly turned chilly.

The elephants are from Thailand, which may explain the presence of the Asian gentleman. Perhaps the ambassador?

Wow, Isabella's jacket looks exactly like my jacket I wonder if it's from the same place. My compliments to Mary for dressing her. I'm sure mommy's good taste will rub off on Isabella when she gets older. I can't wait to see how she'll dress then.

Henrik and Isabella are adorable. She and Christian really looks like him.

Joachim's boys gets more and more handsome for each time I see them.

I have a cotton coat like Bella's too, but I'm fairly certain it's not from the same place, I don't think you can get it in a mini-size where I bought mine.

Great to see grandfather and grandchildren out together. Prince Henrik and Isabella certainly look like a pair that would liven things up!

Cool, Iceflower.

From this pic: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater
It looks like Bella is thinking of ways to tease her older brother.

Great pictures! Bella is adorable, love her outfit. Lovely to see Prince Henrik with his grandkids. Pity Prince Henrik (Joachim & Marie's son) did not attend, might be young but if he was with a nanny, then I suppose would be fine.
Id love to see them as a whole family (with their parents) attending this event. Would be great to see.
