Thanks for the pics.

Interesting that a navy band is playing outside at a gala concert in honor of the army.

Yes tonight QMII hosts a Medal of Honour dinner for army officers at Fredensborg Castle. It's a dinner, more than a recpetion, I think. CP Frederik and Prince Joachim attend. QMII has hosted these dinners the last many years, but we've never got any pictures. So I don't think we should expect it tonight either.

Actually Mary was originally written as participating as well, but her attendance has been cancelled. Mary has only once had to cancel due to sickness in the ten years she has been our Crown Princess, but maybe she has been hit by a cold as so many other Danes in these weeks. But I don't think that, I actually more think she and Frederik have agreed on that he will go with brother Joachim and Mary stays home with the children on the couch on a Friday evening and watch Disney Show She and Frederik have been really busy and the coming time as well.

Have Frederik and Mary moved back to Amalienborg, or are they still in their summer home? Have Joachim and Marie moved to Copenhagen?

Thanks, Polyesco.

This time wearing the mess uniform of the Guards Hussars. - I know you are an admirer of Frederik in uniforms...
(Perhaps you should start a poll about which uniform looks best on Frederik and throw in a a pair of red pants as a civillian alternative...)

A great idea
For me it would be the full naval uniform. With the longer coat.
But Frederik can wear a bag of potatos and still look great

Joachim was wearing his usual uniform. The one with blue pants and top hat blue. Does he not have different ones?

That would be Frederik's full dress navy winter-uniform.

With top hat, I presume you mean his kepi? The Danish 1860's uniforms were (just like the US uniforms at the same time) very much modelled on the French uniforms at the time.
No, Joachim only served in the army, and not a guards regiment, but a life-regiment i.e. a regiment traditionally attached a particular royal. (An equivalent to the British X-royal's Own Regiment of Foot or something similar).

Can anyone tell me why Frederik's 'wings' are red in the centre, as does the Officer beside Queen Margrethe?

That's his free-fall jump wings.
Had they been blue it would have been static line jump wings.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #40, 2014.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

As you will recall the DRF recently attended a concert on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the Danish army. (The navy in comparison is 500 years old).
That took place in the Opera, which is located across the harbour from Amalienborg. As such the DRF crossed the harbour in two chaluppes (grand navy boats) and they arrives as dusk was setting in. (*)
Here they were recieved by the navy band playing outside the Opera.

In 1614 Christian IV established the first standing army consiting of a militia of 4.000 men. (**) Before then armies were raised for the occasion or they were household troops, belonging to various royals or nobles.

Inside several hundred guests had been invited for the concert, where the Music Corps of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment played along with other bands from the armed forces.
The conferencier was a very good friend of M&F, the very popular Preben Christensen, who is the husband of Mary's hairdresser, Søren Hedegaard.
And suddenly he announced that a brand new (saluting/honorary) march would be played in public for the first time. It's the Crown Princess Mary's Honorary March.
That made Frederik to become so moved that he felled a tear and when Mary saw that, she had to wipe her eyes as well.

Salute-/honorary marches are designated the various members of the DRF.
Queen Margrethe's Parade-march is played at the changing of the guards at noon in front of the palaces. And while the music corps is there they usually play a couple of the other honorary marches.
When Frederik becomes king, the march designated him will become the march played at the changing of the guards.
However when a royal is alone on the job and for whatever reason encounter a military band, the march designated him or her will be played. And that will happen for Mary as well from now on. And that will be a personal salute, hence the name salute/honary march.

(*) At this time of year it's time to turn on the lights in our homes around 19.00. Just a few months ago in late June it was around 22.30. Time flies...

(**) To call it a militia is a simplified truth. The 4.000 men were each given a small plot of land for them and their families. In return they were fully equipped and armed and responsible for maintaining their training, show up for various service for a limited time and of course for drills and ultimately for war. As such they constituted (in theory) a fully equipped and trained force that could be mobilized within a couple of days.
Normally royals or nobles formed their own companies of tenent farmers, whom they were responsible for equipping, arming, training and feeding. That was fairly cheap but took time!
The alternative was to hire mercenaries. That also took time and they were very expensive and quite troublesome to have around in peacetime.
So a kind of yeomen were preferred, hence the establishment of the 4.000 militia.
Towns had since ancient times been responsible for their own defence and town-militias were not required to take to the field outside the immediate area.

This mix of militia and yeomen however soon proved inadequte, especially in regards to training, so permanent regular regiments were soon formed.

A hundred years before the defence of the realm rested on the shoulders of all free men. All free men were required to be armed and armoured and to show up when the realm was in danger. The call being "mand af hus" = meaning something like full mobilization.
The problem was that people showed up with inadequate and ofte antiquated equipment and weapons and they were in no way adequately trained let alone able to fight as units.
- And more importantly they would rebel litterally at the drop of a hat!
So after the Feud of the Count, a vicious civil war taking place in the 1530's, civillians were disarmed to avoid another civil war and the constant trouble with armed citizen showing up complaining about something (usually taxation), which meant the king had to dispatch someone to calm the situation, preferably without bloodshed. - And usually they actually succeeded! Except for a couple of nobles and a few officials being beaten up and and a farm or two torched - which the rebels duly helped rebuild afterwards when things had been resolved...

Thanks Muhler

I would love to hear the Crown Princess Mary's Honorary March. I wonder when we will get to hear it?

I can imagine Frederik was really proud.
