I agree-Mary is the star. Her tiara doesn't clash with her gown like Marie's does (Marie's tiara is in a white metal but her gown has a gold-ish trim to it--I personally don't like that) but since it's the order of the Elephant I can "let it go"!

There must be a lot of pressure on Mary and Marie to dress up for the press since we all seem to compare them, unfortunately.

I think the Danish Royal ladies all look absolutely amazing in their resplendant gowns. This is I think Princess Marie's first New Year gala and I think she looks the very epitome of a Danish princess. She carried herself charmingly and is clearly starting to bring out her own individual charm and style to these events. Crown Princess Mary is clearly very confortable in her role and looks very confident and lovely. I don't think you can compare the two princesses as they compliment eachother very well.

it's lovely to see marie in her first new year court! i loved the tiara she chose/was offered, it really suits her. her style in gala gowns seems much different to mary's, who generally goes for lighter colours and much more similar to alexandra's.

Princes Mary is still very elegant and gorgeous! I love that dresse even she has worn it several times! It's always a pleasure to see her in a gala dress with a tiara and a wonderful hairdo!

Princesse Marie is gorgeous too! I would like to see the dress without the fur to see how it is in reality! She's becoming more and more confident as a princess!

Danish people must be very proud of its 2 beautiful princesses!

The Crown Princess has worn this ice blue evening gown three times, not several.

The Queen is wearing this pearl and ruby set from the Crown jewels. She has put the stomacher on the necklace.
There is a nice story about pearl-necklace. It wasn't worn for a long time so they pearl lost there colour and became grey. Queen Ingrid then started to wearl the pearl necklace at night and sleept with it then the pearls started to work again

They don't! This is an official event reflecting the constitutional relation between monarch and government, and it concerns the institution = the Royal House rather than the royal family.

Those present are members of the royal house; the monarch & spouse, the heir apparent and others in the line of succession and their spouses. Apparently the only one missing is the elderly HH Princess Elisabeth.

A happy new year to all!

A question: was CP Mary wearing the same dress she wore during her pre-wedding gala banquet at Christinsborg Palace? For me she only had,this time, different earings. But, anyway, I think she looks great!

All the ladies look beatiful. Though I've to say that princess Marie was indeed very beatiful.

The ladies are beautiful indeed.

Marie has a beautiful tiara. It's much nicer than the tiara Mary got upon her wedding to Fred. Since Marie is on the shorter side, her gown seems to drown her a bit.

Mary looks good too. Love the fur jacket/shrug. I do wish Margrethe would give her another crown/parure other than the Ruby one. It really doesn't go with everything. But I guess she couldn't wear her smaller diamond tiara.

It is unfortunate that the two princesses are often compared as each bring their own strengths to the royal family. Seeing CP Mary in this recycled dress reminds me how much she has grown in her role. She looks more comfortable since the first time she wore this gown. She carries herself more confidently... almost like she has grown into the gown and the tiara if that makes sense (I'm not speaking in the physical sense, although I am very impressed that she can still wear the dress after 2 babies and she does look great). I think the more we see Princess Marie at gala events, the more confident she will appear too, although she presented herself very well at this event.

Princess Marie is wearing for the first time the necklace of the Order of the Olifant. Do you think ex-Princess Alexandra had to give her's back ???
