Did Princess Elizabeth not come in with the other royals? Bummer, I was hoping for a good photo of her tiara

Cool

The Queen looked splendid as always. Princess Elizabeth is not in the best health especially over the past year and has had to miss events, I'm sad to say.

I thought Marie looked really good, that is one of her better dresses. I don't care if it is similar to Mary's dress or not because I do prefer everything about Marie's dress especially the color, might of been copied but to the better.
Frederik looks really tired, I don't blame him as his twins are due anytime.
Queen M looked good though not a fan of that color on her.
Thanks all for the pictures & videos.

Another clip from TV2: Kronprinsessen blev hjemme fra taffel - TV 2 Nyhederne

Now, I love details.
Compare Joachim in this clip with the one below, posted by FanMaxima: TV 2 Nyhederne - Video

Notice how Joachim exits the car nearest the red carpet, which is correct according to protocol.

Then he go back behind the car to meet Marie, before both of them walk up the red carpet. - Instead of just stand there and wait for her.
That's (and now I'm serious) the way to do it!

Quite sweet IMO

If Mary is not attending, does that mean her LIW's also do not attend or are they automatically invited whether Mary is attending or not?

Thanks for the additional pics

No, I very much doubt Mary's LiW will be invited to this New Year Table. Her rank simply isn't high enough.

As you may have noticed, not even the spouses of the ministers are invited on this occasion.

ADDED: A little explanatory note.
This is the first of the New Year Courts, but it's also a New Year Table (Taffel).
The dignitaries greet the DRF, that's basicially the court-part of the event. Then they have dinner. That's the table-bit.
Taffel = Table. Taffel is an archaic word for a grand dinner.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a distinction in English for the Danish words: Kur and Hof.
This is a New Year "kur", which means: to court someone, in this case the DRF. - That's where you are recieved by the DRF and greet them.
Now, the word "hof" can have two meanings, depending on how it's used. Usually you translate the word "hof" to court. I.e. the royal household, complete with LiW's and what not.
However, "holde hof" is also translated to court, but that meaning is very different. To "holde hof" is when the monarch precides over his/her court. I don't even believe that is done anymore. Not since Absolutism was abolished in 1848.
Do you get my meaning? - We are talking about very old expressions here.

They go direct from their respective parts of Amalienborg. Yesterday we saw QMII and Prince Henrik drive out from their part passing the CPC´s part, then the part with the Amalienborg Museum and then arrive in front of the guestpart.

Sorry, I can´t remember all the names for the four different parts of Amalienborg, but I hope you get, what I mean

I won´t do that, since my comment was made to tease Muhler, nothing more nothing less.

Yes thank.But at last the queen and Prince then drive around the Place. They could also drive along the Colonnade which would be even shorter.

Thank you, Marika

A few details I'd like to point out:

De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 5 | Starlounge
Enjoy the way our Marie is looking at her Joachim. - As befits an adoring wife.

De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 7 | Starlounge

Compare the pic above with this of the Regent Couple:
De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 22 | Starlounge

Notice how Joachim and la Marie are standing. Marie stay at Joachim's right side as is both proper and correct.
QMII and PH merely turned around on their heels when they posed.
I like it when things are done with style.

De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 14 | Starlounge
It's nice to see Frederik genuinely delighted. And having served in the army myself, I must nevertheless admit that the navy uniform is by far the smartest looking of all the branches.
I think Frederik is looking at his feet, for whatever reason, as there is nothing in front of him but Amalienborg Square.

De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 28 | Starlounge
The guard has turned out, complete with the regimental colour. The red tunic combined with the white cord, connecting the bandollier and bearskin caps is gala-1. The finest uniform.
Their rifles are the stripped down version of the current standard rifle (M95), with a short magazine, for aestetic reasons. They have live ammunition in their rifles.

De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 30 | Starlounge
The honour guard in the collonnade, where the cars with the guests stop. The guardsmen here are wearing the dark greatcoat, which is worn in cold weather.

De kongelige til Nytårskur på Amalienborg - Billede 31 | Starlounge
Inside the sentry boxes is a red cloak, used in very poor weather and sometimes in rain.
When the guards are relieved, the serving NCO always check the sentry box, to see whether a girlfriend should be hiding behind the cloak. A little tradition of the regiment.
The sentry boxes always carry the monogram of the reigning monarch.
A sentry always has the (knife-)bayonet fixed.

I noticed when I was watching the arrivals on tv, that Joachim was swinging his right arm 45 degrees in moore than one occasion.

A coincidence?

Sone one who is much hung on formalities will appriciate this I'm sure. :)

She is the talking cleavage... sorry, that's her nickname. She is the lady seen talking behind the reporter.
When naming the Foreing Minister of Denmark a talking cleavage you are naming your self a male chauvinist

There is the expression "to hold court" in English meaning jour fixes where the king surrounded himself with his courtiers and advisors while the queen sat with her ladies. On these occasions young people could be introduced to the king and queen by sponsors who already had the ear of the monarch and his spouse.

Well, they could, but that would be against the way to drive. Even at Amalienborg Square one have to drive in the right side of the road as you do in Denmark
