Do you mean this photo? http://sn.dk/modules/xphoto/cache/69..._0_0_0_0_2.jpg

That´s John Kørner, the artist who did the wallpainting at the CPC´s palace. Yup, the painting with the soldiers getting (being?) bombed.

En enkelt kjole stjal opmærksomheden til fest hos dronningen - Kultur

A gallery of the guests at the gala.

The guy in the bottom photo annoyed the H. out of me when he shuffled in to greet the DRF. One hand in the pocket all the time.
He was downright rude IMO!

You do not make a show about yourself when you are a guest, and certainly not at a gala. Especially if you are not even the guest of honor. That's snubbing the host! Any host.
There were 340 other guests who were all at least as accomplished as himself, so he was by no means anything special.

He may think the sun shines out of his behind but in my eyes it was bad manners - and even worse: stupid.

And while I'm at pet-aversions: Guests who are always "fashionably late" or who are late because "nothing happens anyway". No, nothing happens because everyone are waiting for you to arrive, so we can finally go to the table!
Fortunately there is a remedy for that sort of behavior.

i thought that was mary's wedding tiara! hope we get to know more about this piece. is it from the DRF's vault?

i like the intricate design of mary's dress. it's funny it dates from a spring 2014 collection - she must have bought it a long time ago and never got to use it? which makes us wonder how many fab dresses are there in the female royals wardrobes that were bought and we never got to see :)

I think royals (in general) have many private events where a dress like this can be worn and maybe that's why we haven't seen in public until now.

100% agree. She looks so happy and proud! and Frederik with that smile.
im glad the DRF shared these photos
"HRH The Crown Prince welcomed after dinner H. M. Queen up to the evening's first dance that took place in the Great Hall."

I wonder who Mary danced with?

OK, that explains it. Thank you. I have seen pictures of that painting; on YouTube, there is a 10-minute film called 'Renovating a Palace in Copenhagen' that features the artwork in F&M's home.

quite true, we forget that they probably have other gala dinners that are non official, so it is very possible that she used it for a private outing...

Some extra tidbits are trickling in.

It was noticed that Mary's hairdresser, Søren Hedegaard arrived without his husband, the extremely popular actor, Preben Kristensen. (Almost exclusively theater).
He had to cancel in the last minute, due to illness reports BB: Preben Kristensen for syg til hofbal | BILLED-BLADET

The stand-upper Jan Gintberg, who was to ball for the first time had our Marie as tablepartner and that seems to have worked out well, write BB: Jan Gintberg er vild med prinsesse Marie | BILLED-BLADET
To BB he says that he had an absolutely smashing evening and that he is most impressed with Marie, who according to Gintberg master Danish to perfection and what is even better; she has a keen sense of humors and a quick wit.

It's quite interesting that since the retirement/defection of Prince Henrik I have been waiting to see just such photos, Queen Margrethe opening the dancing with Frederik as her partner. Over the years much has been said about their relationship but since Frederik married Mary he and his mother seem to have never been closer and he has said as much.

But in the final analysis, a picture is worth a thousand words (and two are worth two thousand). Queen Margrethe and Frederik seem closer and happier than they have ever been before. Perhaps not having to worry about offending the Prince Consort's tender feelings has taken a load off!

I totally agree with your analysis here, Marg. Especially the second part of it. When you have a family member that displays such erratic behaviour as Prince Henrik has done, I think that you are always a bit anxious and on the edge about what's going to happen. In some ways it's sad that Prince Henrik has retired. But I also think that this new situation brings peace and stability to the whole family. And that's something that shows in these pictures.

I agree 100%. The moment of the two dancing was beautifully captured. Such happiness in both the Queen and Frederik.
I think the Queen looked so proud and happy to be dancing with him. It must mean alot to see that she has the support and love from her son and heir.
This picture remained me a bit of the one from last year's birthday celebrations, after Frederik gave his speech in her honor.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #11, 2016.
Written by our woman at the court, Trine Larsen.

342 guest came to the ball, the official name being Art et Lettres (the DRF has to this day retained a lot of the wording and customs inspired by the French court in the 1700's), which took place at the Royal representation rooms at Chrisitiansborg Castle.
The last ball was in 2009, so for quite a few of those invited it was the first ball.
Mary wore a dress by Temperley.
Our Marie one by Rikke Gudnitz.
QMII a dress made by Birgitte Thaulow.

When the guests filed past the DRF it was in accordance with the protocol.
First the ladies and gentlemen of the court.
Followed by the PM and the Minister for Culture and the Chairwoman of the Parliament.
Then the ordinary guests followed.
It was actually a problem that QMII was sitting down. Because some of the ladies wearing longs gowns had problems curtsying and holding QMII's hand while wearing stilettos. The difference of some 40 cm between sitting down and standing up apparently makes a big difference.

As the only one Princess Nathalie got a kiss on the cheek by QMII, but she is of course family.
Frederik was more heartwarm in some of his greetings. Not least the singer Lars HUG, who got a big hug, and also a kiss on the cheek from Mary. Lars HUG was the one who wrote the lines about weightless love that Frederik quoted in his wedding-speech.

The party was seated at round eight-man tables.
QMII sat between director Bille August and entertainer Søren Østergaard, who didn't know beforehand that his tablepartner was to be QMII. - Søren Østergaard has performed for QMII before and his wacky humor inevitably makes her crack up.
Frederik was seated between actress Danica Curcic and triathlete, Camilla Pedersen, who was presented with a award some time back by Frederik. After a serious accident she was in coma, yet she recovered and recovered enough to win the world championships.
Mary was seated between actor Lars Mikkelsen and singer, Rasmus Seebach, whom it is absolutely certain her children is very familiar with.
Marie was seated between stand-upper, Jan Gintberg and designer Stine Goya (so it seems a rearrangement must have taken place, because normally women are not seated next to each other).

During the dinner, the Music Corps of the Royal Lifeguard played and the Copenhagen Boys Choir sang.

After the dinner it was time for dancing Les Lanciers, led by the younger members of the DRF.

Then the conferencier of the evening, Jesper Kryger went on stage and pretended to be improvising: "While we're here shouldn't we just have the wildest party"? Yeah!!
He snapped his finger and the Royal Lifeguard played QMII's Parademarch. Another snap and 40 gentlemen wearing bearskin caps (guards headgear) marched in on the balcony overlooking the hall playing Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al.
Afterwards Jesper Kryger asked if they'd like it even wilder. Yeah!! The lighting went into disco-mode and 30 dancers from PIVOT, dressed up like the discreet freemasons who had been serving, started dancing between the tables to Michael Jackson's Don't Stop Till You Get Enough. By which time everyone, QMII included, stood clapping with their hands over their heads.

Surely all the travelling he's been doing is far more strenuous than attending this function by his wife's side?
