Thank you so much for the pictures, I am a huge animal lover and it was nice to see how well taken care of the horses were. As I used to ride when way younger horses are an animal that I have a great fondness for. I would love to be able to see the guards out riding and the carriage out waiting for the queen......and those uniforms, I just love to see men in uniforms that represent their heritage and traditions, so whenever keep those pictures coming. Saved a few for my files,

Now Hannelore, rejoice, because here they are: https://app.box.com/s/5dwucgoaxxhuiznp2uj7wmgw5hc9zjux

Mary sure look like that the holiday in Australia was just was she needed! If her smile gets any wider, her face will crack.
- And she's probably pregnant again. - With quadruples. Remember you heard it here first.

Hi Muhler, I am so pleased we got a photo of Princess Elisabeth at the New Year gala. She looks good for an eighty year old. It wouldn't be the same without her. I wish her a very good 2016 after the upheaval of 2015 - shifting home etc.

I can not understand why Billed Bladet didn't start an English version of their magazine for the Australian market right from the beginning. They would have generated very good sales here. Too late now though. Although if they put out a special issue covering the last ten years it would/should sell well here.
What do you think Sun Lion?

I don't know about Sun Lion, but I think it would be a great idea.

Big thanks to you Muhler!! Wonderful to be able to go through the magazine, thanks to your efforts.

A few things I noticed (should anyone care):
- Marie wearing a big ring on her index finger at the first kur. Is it a new one?
- Mary's new lady-in-waiting Christine is somehow less in the picture than Tanja Doky or Caroline Heering it seems. Maybe she's more a lady of substance than a clothes horse / society person so to speak. I'd love to know more about her. Her dress looks lovely. (BTW what does the word "Skræddermester" mean?)
- Princess Elisabeth looked lovely in that sparkly blue velvet gown!

My pleasure.

Skræddermester = tailor-master.

Well, Billed Bladet launched the site Royalista. Apparently as a kind of trial balloon, because right now it has been taken down for review it seems.
I think it will reemerge at some point as a kind of pay-site, or with adds.

But if enough of you write them, they may consider issuing the yearly reviews in English. Perhaps on a order-basis? The price is very affordable.
It won't hurt if you and a few hundred of your friends mailed them, eh?

The yearly reviews are these: https://app.box.com/s/ej9cita9uas60h92w9e9mtwizzvtwzk4

The grandest of the New Year courts takes place tonight.

We've previously looked the historical background for these courts, now let's look at the ceremonial that you will see in the clips in only a few hours.

This is one of the few occasions when the Order of the Elephant is worn in a chain draped over the shoulders.
The Royal Lifeguard will turn out in their finest, red gala one.
The Guards Hussars will wear their gala uniform.

Any guests present who are entitled to wear a uniform will wear gala.

The DRF will arrive in reverse order of precedence. If she is up to it, Princess Elisabeth will be the first. But she is frail and may arrive by a side entrance.
As the members of the DRF arrive, those who hold a military rank will formally take over command of the guards detachments present and inspect the honor guard.

That means that Benedikte will not inspect the guard as she does not hold a military rank.

The next to arrive will be Joachim and our Marie. Joachim wearing the gala uniform of a colonel in the army. He will remove his headgear when entering the hall. After greeting a few people just inside the door, he will proceed to the honor guard, where the officer in charge will present a report and formally hand over the command to Joachim, since he is the highest ranking member of the DRF present.
Joachim will inspect the honor guard and formally give the officer in charge the order to "carry on".
Then he will rejoin his wife and they will proceed inside.

The next to arrive will be M&F. Frederik will do the same thing. Probably wearing the gala uniform of a rear admiral.
It would be interesting if Frederik should happen to be indisposed.
Mary is entitled to wear a uniform, since she's lieutenant in the Home Guard. So I guess she would inspect the honor guard as a matter of courtesy, but I believe Joachim would still formally be in command.

The last to arrive will be QMII. As the Commander in Chief, she will also inspect the honor guard and formally be in command.
You will notice that QMII always nods in front of the colour-bearer as a sign of respect.

When the royals arrive you will hear a distinct tune being played. That's the fifers and drummers of the Royal Lifeguard playing the Colour March, which is also a salute.
That tune is also known as: "Her kommer Jens med Fanen" = Here comes Jens(*) with the Colour".
Here is the Colour March. So when you hear that tune tonight, don't look away, because that means a royal is coming.


Later tonight, and we won't see it. QMII will give a speak thanking her government but also the MPs for their work and on this occasion only QMII, now with Mary and Marie, will curtsy to the guests presents as a sign of respect.
I guess Frederik will bow when his time comes.

(*) Jens is the popular name for the Danish army private. Just like Tommy, Ivan, Fritz and so on.

Here, if you can watch it outside DK: LIVE Følg årets fornemste fest her | Nyheder | DR
coverage outside Amalienborg starts in five minutes after this is posted.

Alternatively try here: http://jyllands-posten.dk/indland/EC...ns-nytaarskur/
(Slow to load).

A funny little detail: The guest went up the stairs to the right (for us viewers), while the DRF went left.
As you noticed the Regent Couple went right, when QMII suddenly remembered she was to go up the other stairs. PH continued because there is an elevator to that side, but not the other.

The DRF will gather and greet some of the staff, before lining up to receive the guests.

Mary is wearing the dress she wore in the new portrait that was released last August with her Rubies, of course.

Marie is wearing a new dress (I believe?) with the Floral Tiara, of course.

and Daisy is recycling a blue dress and she's wearing the Pearls.

I don't think so. I didn't see her arrive and she is not on the guestlist. Gæsteliste ved nytårstaffel 1. januar 2017 | Kongehuset
IIRC she hasn't attended the NY Banquet since a couple of years now.

I love the way the Queen rolls her eyes at herself when she went up the wrong stairs!
