... royal guests are wearing a light blue sash with an elephant on the lower right side holding the sash in place. 

The blue sash yes but I don't think I have ever seen other royals wearing the neckless with elephants?

He looks very gaunt in his face. I don't remember him looking like that in the past. Is this just me?

Also it strikes me that he looks much older than Frederik and he's the younger brother too. He definitely has his act together more than Fred.

Princess Alexandra looks very exquisite in photos, very classy and beautiful. Some of her fashion choices suprise me, she goes for colour combinations that I wouldn't normally myself and also I think she overdoes it with the hats. She should not wear them that often. They are lovely but not necessary IMO...She comes across as a very caring and kind individual. I am not suprised that she's so popular.

Joachim looks older i think because he smokes. I cant believe Margrethe said that about her sons in public.

What did Margrethe say about her sons publicly?

Doesn't Frederik smoke, too? I think the whole family smokes, or has smoked at some point. I know Prince Henrik publicly spoke out about quitting the habit, but I think his wife and his two sons still smoke. Not sure about Alexandra or Mary, however.

Joachim to me has always looked a tad on the gaunt side. Genes from his mother's side, I suppose.

The gaunter look at hunting ... was that because he partied to the wee hours the previous night and was somewhat hung over on hunting day ?

I can't believe the Queen would say that about her own children.

It makes me wonder though if wonder siblings feel that they are not as "wanted" as their older siblings? That perhaps (obviously?) Frederik was the favoured child. Espescially with families where there is more than one son, since during Frederik and Joachim's generations, sons outranked daughters and automatically succedeeded to the throne for the most part (Sweden exempted).

For example, Willem more favoured than Constantijn and Johan Friso; Charles more than Andrew and Edward; Phillippe more than Laurent; and to some extent, Pavlos more than Nikolaos or Phillippos.

In the last pic, Prince Joachim looks like a throwback from a starved generation. :(

Hahaha... I always thought that too. Even when he's not in uniform, Joachim looks to me like a WWII general. Is he tall or are Frederik and Alexandra short?

The dilemma with Prince Joachim is that he is not as cheerful as Frederick. That's why he looks to me like a prince who didn't eat his breakfast! :)

But it's ok. He is still handsome. I prefer his looks than Frederick. He is not fat just enough and I like his height. Sort of a tall person.

It has been a long time since Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra had an official visit to other countries. Are they really very busy? I know with P Alexandra. She is very occupied especially with the organizations she supports then she has UNICEF Denmark.

I hope I could see new pictures of her. She wasn't even there during the hunting.
I think she was not there maybe because she was busy or she doesn't like to hunt animals. I think she supports an organization related to animals. :)

That's very true and observant, Paulette. Even when Frederik is not smiling, he has a demeanor of a happy or cheerful person -- something about those sparkle in his eyes. But Joachim comes off for the most part as very stern looking - must be those hollow cheekbones or something! Someone on this board pointed out a similar thing about Claire of Belgium; that she can look very stern when she isn't smiling, and I think the same holds for Joachim.

Alex, you are a lovely woman, but please stop wearing such unflattering nylons! Surely someone must have pointed out that ones such as these do not photograph well and detract from an otherwise classic outfit. Anyone else on the board agree or will I have to go into hiding?

Yes, I noticed some troubles with their hosiery....too shiny nylons and Frederik's socks (it looks like he was trying for a knickers effect ?).

Alexandra looks great at that evening event, though, despite the nylons. She looks younger and younger, and oh so serene.
