Mary looks fabulous, hair & make up are great! I love this gown and the fact that she does wear such wonderful dresses that can actually be considered top quality gala dresses. Christmas must have been kind since her face looks quite full
As usual I don't know what to say about Fred. These official events seem to be a torture for him. He does not look happy or confident at all, rather like he wants to be somewhere else (and we could see last year that there are environments where he is so much at ease, eg when he is with his children or on a sailing boat). Although they are not Kings yet I see them more and more in the Carl Gustaf & Silvia position meaning Fred keeping a lower profile in the background and Mary doing the front office work and gaining some popularity. It did work in Sweden and I am sure it will become a success in Denmark, too.

A couple of more photo series for your enjoyment.

Also, DRWs reported, via Berlingske Tidende, last night's event. They, thankfully, translated the whole article; it's a good read so click here to view and enjoy! Or you can read the English translation here courtesy of the Danish newspaper, JP.dk

Would love to see Mary's beautiful dress without the wrap. It was skin-tight when she wore it in 2004 and I wonder if they had to let out the bodice. It would be interesting to see how she put it all together: ruby gems, regal paraphernalia and honors. Not to worry, however, fashion cops give royal excesses a pass when it encorporates tradition, I loved it in any case.

I remember when Mary has wore this gown for the first time. There were many opinions not only here but on GREMB too that this isn't beautiful dress.

May I say that both the Queen and Mary looked stunning? Orange is a good color for Margarethe and Mary could wear a sheet and look good (OK, so maybe not, but you get the picture). Thanks for the pictures everyone!

I am the only one who loves Soren Steffen's pictures, but hates how his watermark has evolved over the past, say, six months? It always covers the people's face - and you feel sad because the pictures and their quality are fantastic!

In the Soren Steffen pics, you can see Mary's Order of the Elephant chain, or at least the elephant fob, so for those wondering whether she was wearing it or not, she was

You really don't let gowns out. It's very difficult. Can it be done? yes. But you usually don't. And since Mary can afford to buy a new gala gown or wear another she has, I think it's safe to assume this still fits. She prides herself on eating well, and physical fitness.

I think the dress is so beautiful.

Marie is not yet a member of the Royal Family and so her presence is not required. Next year though...

Video from today's kur from TV2



Margrethe is wearing the blue fur-trimmed gown from last year, and Mary looks to be wearing a pale colour along the lines of mauve, grey or silver
