I loved both the red velvet and the blue and purple, however, I think her hair was a disaster.

In the red gown her dark hair just faded into the background and made the Ruby Tiara look like an overlarge headband.

The blue and purple ensemble had wonderful rich tones which compliment her colouring, but the hair looked like it had been pulled back in an askew ponytail!

Mary has wonderful carriage and a very graceful neck. Both hairstyles made her look (in some photos) like she had no neck.

Both occassions called for an updo, and the Ruby Parure demands it!

Mary looks gorgeous in the velvet burgundy dress. The ruby pasture goes perfectly with the dress and Mary looks so elegant in it. However, she looks more pregnant in the satin blue/lavender dress than in the velvet burgundy dress.

Her Majesty the Queen looks stunning in the emerald dress. I love the Queen emerald.

Queen Margrethe looks magnificent in her emerald dress and Emerald Parure sans Tiara? Which Tiara was she wearing, I couldn't quite make it out in the photographs?

Queen Margrethe is wearing the Emerald Parure including the tiara. She looks magnificent in green, doesn't she?

Here you have an overview of how the Danish Royal Family entered 2007!

According to these articles in Billed Bladet and Se & Hør, The Reigning Couple celebrated New Year’s Eve at a themed party hosted by their close friend, Mr. Bent Fabricius-Bjerre, a well-known Danish composer and musician. The theme of the party was the Danish TV series “Matador”, and according to Se & Hør, HM The Queen was dressed as Misse Møhge, an elderly spinster taking care of her bossy mother, Mrs. Fernando Møhge, who is in a wheelchair. And of course, HRH The Prince Consort dressed as Mrs. Fernando Møhge, seated himself in a wheelchair and ordered his wife around! Sadly, the couple arrived out of coustume and changed inside! I, for one, would have liked to see The Queen pushing The Prince Consort around while he constantly shouts orders at his wife. A sight for sore eyes, I imagine

Regarding the New Year’s Eve of TRH The Crown Prince Couple, I have not been able to find any information on what they did this year. But if they go by “same procedure as last year”, the couple have celebrated the New Year in Northern Jutland with some private friends.

Finally, according to this article from Billed Bladet (in Danish), HRH Prince Joachim celebrated the coming of the new year at Amalienborg with both his girlfriend Ms. Marie Cavallier, his ex-wife HH Princess Alexandra and the Princess’ girlfriend, Mr. Martin Jørgensen, along with his and the Princess’ children, TH Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix. The celebrations started in the afternoon and lasted until late in the night.

Thanks soCal girl. I just wasn't sure.
I have to admit it is hard to really get a good look at the tiara when the queen is wearing it, which is a great pity. The photos of the parure itself show a magnificent tiara.
Does anyone have a good picture of Queen Margrethe wearing it (in more recent years)?

2 in 2006 and 2007. The New Years reception in 2005 where cancelled and took place much smaller because of the Tsunami where a lot of Danes where killed.

This years gown is a stunner! When I think of it, last years new years gown was one of the only time I was really disapointed in CPSS Mary's attire, This year makes up for it!

I said this in the Mary's Gala Dress thread, but I thought she looked utterly divine at this year's court. With the little baby bump, and the ruby parure, and the dark wine-colored dress...she looked a dream.

Divorce is never an ideal thing, but I love it when the new family structure is able to work together like this. Martin drove Felix and Nikolai to the gathering, and Alexandra came a bit later.

Apparently Joachim and his friends were sending up fireworks from the garden behind the Palace.

yes that is true but if you look at the two dresses, both different cuts. i'd love to see what her dress looks like under the blue coat. liked her simple jewlley and hair. The red dress was nice, but maybe if she had pulled her hair up, looked a bit messy but beautiful jewllery again. Her belly is growing and showing at last. she looks wonderful

NOTE: The above ‘guest list’ of royals is a guess on my part.
And I was wrong HH Princess Elisabeth, 7th in line to the Danish throne, did not attend the New Year's Banquet on January 1, and today, I learned why.

According to Billed Bladet (#1, 2007), Her Highness fell in her home, resulting in an ulcer on her right foot, which has rendered her unable to put on her shoes.

So let us hope that the 71-year-old princess will recover soon!

Who is HH Princess Elisabeth (and what relation is she to Frederik?)
