DRWs is reporting, via their translators and sources, that the Queen's speech detailed the:

..welcoming migrants into the Danish community and being more open minded about 'new Danes'... that Danes should have a warmer and more open attitude towards the country's migrants...
This is interesting that this was a highlight of her speech along with the effects of global warming/the environment, in which they paraphrased:

Quote:
...for greater care and thought for the environment, for nature and the legacy for future generations.
Finally, they note that the Queen:

...expressed special thoughts and good wishes to Danes serving overseas, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I also think Mary looks pregnant. Or maybe it's just the extra weight that she hasn't lose from her second baby.

Just a few weeks ago I wondered why Mary never recycled this ebautiful purple gown.
I'm glad to see this dress again as it is one of my favourite Royal dresses!
I aslo like her hair: beautifully styled, but not too "high" or "big" (like in 2006 for example).

What can I say watching so beautiful royal family and so so elegant crown princess? They all are gorgeus and really regal! And Mary's dress is my favourite because it's so elegant, classic and like fairy tale.

Yay!! Mary recycled the sari-gown again! (where's my dancing banana when I need it?) Mary looks fantastic, love that she's finally wearing the Desiree tiara with her hair up again. Margrethe looks great, orange really suits her. Didn't she wear this dress to the Swedish State Visit?

Thanks for all the photos. I am pleased Mary's new L.inW didn't attend . My feeling is she is just not up to the job. I guess time will tell but certainlt is no Caroline Heering and doesn't appear to be able to work the job. But I could be wrong. Mary looked lovely at New Year celebrations.Loved the opera cap.

This is one of my favourite Mary gowns and orange is a good colour on Queen Margrethe.

I wish we had the banana smilie on this forum right now.

Is this a new tiara? I can't tell if it is the parure set that is featured on the home page of these forums or not.

She looks stunning, and Fred, very handsome.

No, it's not, Emmily. It's the same ruby tiara (I believe she is wearing the necklace as well... I cannot tell really) that was handed down to Frederik via his late grandmother, Queen Ingrid. Finally, a short video clip as well as more pictures from tonight's New Year's gala event.

Ms. Doky has a background in PR, so why do you think she wouldn't be up to the job? Given that we've only seen her at a few events, why have you decided she is incapable of doing her job? From the pics I've seen, she seems to be doing just fine. (I mean, it ain't rocket science.)

We don't know the reason she's not at the New Year's celebration. Perhaps she could have fallen ill or her child could be sick. Given the close relationship between Frederik and her Tanja's husband, I doubt that Mary didn't carefully consider her qualifications before hiring her (at the risk of hurting the relationship).

Mary looks beautiful.

I am so pleased that Mary is wearing this 'sari' gown again. It has always been one of my favourites, especially the colour. Does it look as if the earings have been adjusted or are they new earrings?

Since we didnt get any pictures of Mary inside, I would assume she did take it off once in. I would like to see the dress again without the velvet over it.
