TV2 news at 19.00 had a clip from the arrival of the DRF.

Here is an article:
Skl i rosenborgvin p Amalienborg - TV 2 Nyhederne

This New Year Table is for the official Denmark, i.e. members of the government, holders of the Order of the Elephant, the Chairman of the Parliament and similar of the highest ranking officials.
Not even the opposition in the Parliament, nor wives/spouses of ministers are invited.
They all have the opportunity to wish the DRF (and each other) a Happy New year.
This costum goes back a long, long time. At the beggining of the new year it was costumary not only to personally wish friends a family a Happy New Year but also very much your network. - This is basically continuation of that tradition.

After having greeted the DRF they all have dinner (taffel = table), where the old, albeit now diluted Rosenborg Wine is served. That wine is more than 400 years old.

There were 58 guests and for the holders of the Order of the Elephant, this is the only time of the year, that order is worn on a chain, around the shoulders.

Because words fail me.

I'm mesmerized, enchanted.

This cannot be described, a sight like that must be experienced, savoured, feasted on.

Wait for the pics, Sternchen.

Thanks for the clip, Fanvanmaxima.

- It looks for a moment, that Prince Henrik had problems keeping up...

Karen Ellemann is Minster for Environment and also Minister for Nordic Cooperation - A junior post, probably more suited for her... talents.

Charlotte Sahl-Madsen is Minster for Science and Development.

She is? - Where is she?

I notice that the Foreign Minister and head of the Conservative Party, Lene Espersen, was late. - Well, she's managed to put her feet wrong all year, so why not start the new year in the same manner?
She is the talking cleavage... sorry, that's her nickname. She is the lady seen talking behind the reporter.

Thank you, agami.pearl
P Joachim&P Marie
Maginificent, right Sternchen?
Joachim is wearing the gala uniform of the army.
The uniform dates back to the Schleswigan wars in the mid 1800's, when the field uniform for officers looked very similar.

Frederik is wearing the gala uniform of the navy. - With the "sauce-bowl" hat.

I notice that Prince Henrik is in civillian. I'm tempted to deduce that his... pondus, combined with the metal bottons of military uniforms would be too big a risk, for innocent bystanders.

Yes, looks like Marie wears a dress similar in style to the magnificent one Mary wore last year I guess she asked Mary for the adress of Henrik Hviid

Muhler, I saw the dresses at polfoto.dk, Tariq Mikkel Khan was there to take them

Hm, if you take away the shiny skirt material, I think it is the same material only a different colour

I don't think Marie looks bad at all. Very pretty dress and color on her.

The Queen looks divine as usual, I think Henrik has gotten a bit too rotund for his uniform. Fred's is dishy as always, if not a bit tired looking, but it would be too if my misses was about to pop too little ones out. And Marie looks lovely, the dress is similar to Mary's yes, but I actually like this dress better.

It's good to see Marie again. Her dress looks indeed similar to Mary's one from last year, only better
