I didn´t mean he is ugly. But today, he looks tired and weird. Hope he is okay.
Of course he is handsome

Tired and weird? I can accept that he could be tired as he has two young toddlers and a heavily pregnant wife with twins. But I don't see the "weird'! But, we all see things differently, I suppose!

Oh, that´s easy. They go direct from their house to a warm car, getting out for about 1 minute and then they are inside again. So no problem at all.

I myself had a kneelength dress on today for church And then we are getting used to the cold - well, it´s not so cold anymore. Today the snow was melting...

I am absolutely sure that you don't need to worry. As a Dane, I follow him closely every day and he seems to be a absolutely happy and healthy man

I think Frederik looks great in uniform he wears them so well.
Unlike Joachim who to me never looks as though he is exactly comfortable wearing one.
QM, I love her style.
Princess Marie looks lovely.


Roskidle, I am with you I miss Crown Princess Mary too.

I loved Princess Marie's gown ... her best New Year's Court gown to date!

She knows how to get attention - good or bad
I have compared Mary's dress from last year and Marie's from this year and can not find many similarities other than long and off the shoulder.

Fabric, color, cut of both the top and skirt is different. Actually materially different.

Please back up your comments about Marie being a copygirl with side by side comparisons of the two dresses.

I agree! I think the Queen and Princess Marie look lovely but I just can't get excited about it this year because of Crown Princess Mary's absence.

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.
