Looks blue to me

I agree it's a different shade of blue, more navy than the other dress. It's definitely a different material, more silk than satin IMO.

I think it is a completely new dress, different cut and fabric. Now is a general rule that always has to be in blue? what is the reason for blue?
and yes Fred it is such a handsome man!!!!!

oh it definitely doesn't always have to be blue. She's worn purple, pink, brown, grey, and blue to these Court events.

Even if you call it blue (and sometimes it comes across as blue, sometimes black), I still don't think it's ever the same shade as the other one. And I don't think she'd redesign a dress ~that~ much. There's no point then, is there? Just buy a new dress, which I think is what she's done.

Yes. And one of the good things about the New Year courts for the diplomatic corps are the national costumes many of them wear. I see PH is checking them out in the pic.

A very nice gallery from BT: Se billederne: Diplomater hilste på Margrethe | www.bt.dk

Including an HQ pic of Mary and Polyesco's Frederik: http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/133/8/2048x-u/8133912-.jpg
http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/133/8/x2048-u/8133922-.jpg

Perhaps a member or two here on TRF can spot a national costume?

I see Tanja Doky is discreetly stylish as always: http://royalista.com/74419/gallery-m...ry/image/74463

In contrast the "uniform" of QMII's LiWs is... just discreet. http://royalista.com/74419/gallery-m...ry/image/74485

Out of curiosity. Is the Australian press covering the New Year courts, as they are the among the most glittering events of the year?


-----------------------

http://www.bt.dk/danmark/putins-kold...ens-nytaarskur

BT writes that there were 77 diplomats present, however there was also one noticeble abscentee, the Russian ambassador. Who is otherwise always there. There has been no explanation for the ambassador to excuse himself this year, informs the Foreign Ministry.
One reason could be the economic sanctions by EU against Russia and vice versa, that certainly is beginning to hurt in Russia. The value of the Ruble is falling as you know.

Mary looked wonderful – I much prefer this gown to her usual navy blue gown. At first glance I too thought it was the other one redesigned, but after having a closer look, I'd say the new one is a darker blue than the old one. The old one is almost the same shade as QMII's gown whereas the new one seems much darker. But I don't know, I'm honestly a dweeb at telling such things. She looked spectacular regardless

It's always so interesting to see the various national costumes – that's definitely my favourite thing about this court.

Beautiful and stunning!
Just I have difficulty to understand all the work that had been to transform Mary from Commoner to a Princess and she Looks always Superb! but PH he is so overweight! it is not healthy, and QM her teeth are so dark! they have access to everything why they do not take care of that aspect! PH used to be so handsome when he was joung! can't believe how he looks now! and I know we all get old and we can not help that but still I think he doesn't look healthy!

Thanks for all the pictures from today's court. It's a beautiful sight when the Queen and Prince Consort arrives in the 200 years old carriage.

Here's a gallery from Kongehuset from today
Nytårskur på Christiansborg Slot den 7. januar 2015 - Kongehuset

Frederik and Mary attended as well. Mary in her recycled New Year's court dress.

F&M never arrive in the carriage to these courts, but always by car. I would be a nice view if all four would arrive together in the carriage. But it's way too small for four persons.



Two pictures of Frederik and Mary arriving:

Is there another carriage they could use?
I kinda like that its just the Queen and consort arriving by carriage, makes it special.
Although Frederik arriving by horseback in that blue guards uniform would be wonderful

Lovely to see this outfit for a 3rd time. I think Mary has hit the perfect range of recycling/introducing new outfits. I hope she'll continue this trend and not be like Daisy too soon, lol.

First photo- When the CPC enters the room, the butlers do a close inspection of the floor!
Love Mary's outfit, and the guards.

Any still pictures of the Queen?

Yes, there is at least one they could use.

Frederik is entitled to wear the uniform of the Guards Hussars and there wouldn't be anything to hinder Mary from riding in the escort either. She is after all lieutenant in the Home Guard.
