Welcome! I agree, she seems like a very down to earth and warm person.

I was in Copenhagen for HM birthday celebrations last April. Was such a good time - great atmosphere at Amalienborg and lovely, friendly Danes to chat with while waiting for the DRF to appear on the balcony :) I hope to go again this year!!

I might have a toast (or two) to Her Majesty later myself

Welcome and hope you enjoy the Danish New Year's Court!

The Danish New Years Courts are the first tiara-alert in the world.

Wonderful look the Danish Royal M-Club!

Thanks for the welcome - and I think I'm going to have make a visit to Amalienborg my new year resolution. I love the fact that these events are broadcast live (and I can see it in the UK!).

A gallery from BT: Se alle billederne: Her ankommer de royale til nytårstaffel | www.bt.dk

And congratulations on your first post, LibrarianDaisy

ADDED:

Let's have a closer look at the pics:
#6 - QMII in her court-dress, as former Master of Ceremonies, Christian Eugen Olsen put it. She is being recieved by the new Master of Ceremonies, in charge of his first New Year Court/levee.

#11 - The man is perhaps worth noting. Nikolai Wammen. Who may very well be the one who will have to rebuild the old Social Democrat Party, after their disastrous defeat at the next election in less than three years from now. I have never ever seen a government that eager not to be reelected as the current one....
#12 - The Chairman of the Parliament, Mogen Lykketoft.
#14 - Minister Morten Bødskov, one of the more capable ministers. I see his arms have grown out of his jacket.
#16 - The real and undisputed prime minister in Denmark, Margrethe Vestager.
#18 - Helle Thorning, The Prime Minister - but only in name.

Forgive my ignorance, but isn't the gold unusually yellow?

Not to my eyes, might be the lighting. Reminds me severely of the daisy's

My favourite event of the year!
I wish Mary had worn a new dress though, I'm starving for fashion!

I think it´s "yellow gold" and not white gold or red gold

BTW. the colour looks like the colour of our coins (which the tiara was made of), right?

A picture from Billed Bladet: Billed-Bladet - Elegant og glamourøs nytårskur
Of our Marie looking adoringly at her Joachim.

Perhaps you are right, Lumutqueen.

A nice gallery from Berlingske Tidende Dronningens nytårskur 2013 | www.b.dk

It certainly is a great way to kick off the New Year, with a gala banquet held in candlelight, and especially to see a new tiara on HM. I would love to see photos of the room where the gala is held - bathed in candlelight. It would be so romantic. Thanks to everyone for posting the lovely pics.
