The golden chain around the shoulders is the Order of the Elephant. Usually it is worn in a blue band on the left shoulder, but for very special occassionssuch as New Year it is worn in the the chain. The bow on her shoulder is a pendant with the current regents picture to be worn with the insignia of the Order of the Elephant. If you look closely you will see a miniature painting of HM margrethe II

Can you explain about the star as well? Mary has 1 star but Frederick has 2.
So Marie only has the Order of the Elephant? No bow and no star yet?

Could Margrethe's dress be a re-working of her coat from Fred and Mary's wedding? It looks very similar.

She was, but that's not why she didn't attend the other events.
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie only attend the New Year's gala.
The New Yea's Court at Christiansborg is only attended by the Royal and the Crown Princely couple.
Prince Joachim never attended.

The other star is from the Order of the Dannebrog. Also Margrethe, Henrik and Joachim wear two stars.

The others with direct access to the curb are born royal.
Generally the highest ranking passenger in the car exits first.

Did Mary and Marie receive new necklaces. I never see them before.
Prince Henrik senior without uniform ?

I have been wondering about it for years, and find it quite rude actually for Fred not acting gentlemanly, although there may be a problem, he might have a secret phobia of having an accident we never know, most likely it is some protocol about him being the next king

I think it's interesting (and nice) that both Mary and Marie had their hair fashioned into braids this year.

I don't care for the color orange on Mary at all, but I did like the style of dress with what looks like an overskirt and softer underskirt gathered in front.

Kudos to those of you who understand all of the decorations. I recognize the Order of the Elephant but that's about it!

I didn't know there were rules about who gets direct access to the curb and who doesn't? Kind of a weird one imo....

As was indicated in past posts, CP Frederik is not being rude. Both the regent couple and crown prince couple exit their cars according to protocol. The highest ranking royal exits the car nearest the curb. It is Princess Joachim and Princess Marie who ignore protocol.

Princess Mary is wearing the pendant from the brooch of the Ruby Parue set as a necklace.
Princess Marie is wearing a diamond and sapphire brooch as a necklace which was once Queen Alexandrines.

I quite like the design of Mary's gown, however, what I don't like is the shiny fabric over the skirt. The orange color is already overwhelming and thus adding another shiny fabric would be too much. I imagine I would like it better if the shiny fabric was removed and Mary wore a different tiara. The ruby parure is very elegant but considering the whole impact of the dress and its color, something less shiny on Mary's head would have been better IMO. I notice she wears the ruby parure in every bold color of her gowns.
