In what capacity will be interesting!

Will he come as a guest? Accompanying his mother?
Or will he join his father and our Marie?
Will he wear the Order of the Elephant?
Or will he stay away entirely?

The answer to these questions will be a clear indication as to his future role with the DRF.
It would be nice to see him attending but if he does i guess he would arrive with Joachim and Marie. Hs mother hasn't attended since her second marriage.
Has Benedikte ever attended the New Year's Copurt since her marriage? I thought that perhaps she would attend this year as she is now widowed but she isn't listed in the Calendar so i don't think she wil.

I´m not sure that the children of Prince Joachim will get the Elephant Order. They are "just" HH and not HRH.

I know that HH Prince Richard had the Elephant Order, but he was married to the second in line to the throne.

But Princess Elisabeth has it and her brothers have/had it also.

I feel Princess Elisabeth and her brothers are a bit different because back then their father was the Arveprins, the future King until the changes in the succession,while the father of Nikolai, Felix, Henrik and Athena is "just" a junior Prince. That matters quite a lot in the "picking order" so to say.

Don't know when they got it but probably when they turned 18. By then the succession was already changed and they where further back in line. As far as i remeber also for example Prince Axel and hs brothers had it. And they where the son of Prince Vadlemar a younger son of a King.

Yes they got it late, but maybe sort of "soothing" things inside the family, to handle them with all égards etc.?

HKH Arveprins Knud af Denmark - Ridder af Elefantordenen 1912 (age: 12)
HKH Arveprinsesse Caroline-Mathilde af Danmark - Ridder af Elefantordenen 1960 (age: 48)
HH prins Ingolf til Danmark - Ridder af Elefantordenen 1961 (age: 21)
HH prinsesse Elisabeth til Danmark - Ridder af Elefantordenen 1962 (age: 27)
HH prins Christian til Danmark - Ridder af Elefantordenen 1963 (age: 21)

According to the official guest list from the court he is not listed. Certainly not alongside the other DRF members.
But that may change. So we shall see tonight and hear the explanation I hope.

Because if he is not there, that means Joachim's children IMO are not destined to have a future role in the DRF, apart from attending the occasional family event.
In that case we will have to wait for Christian to turn eighteen before we will see a new face at the New Year Courts.

I read somewhere that the Order of the Elephant was only recently awarded to female members of the DRF as well. So perhaps Caroline-Mathilde was among the first female recipients?

Are you able to watch this link?

https://www.dr.dk/live/nyheder/live/2722288

The live link is the small screen, which can be viewed full screen without loosing too much details.
Right now the PM is giving his New Year speech.

Billed Bladet: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...-nytaarstaffel

And DR1

are now showing live from Amalienborg. - Two different camera angles.

The first guests should arrive about now.
The DRF members around 19.00, in about 30 minutes after this is posted.

Running commentaries.

There are no spouses invited for this court.
The spouses of the members of the government will be entertained at an event at the PM's official residence at Marienborg manor.

That means there are loads of uniforms tonight!
Gala is mandatory and for civilians the finest tux or gown.
Medals and sashes are as such also mandatory.

Notice how the officers salute the sentries as is correct.

Most of the those in uniform are civil servants or members of the court.

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

The uniformed gentleman with the staff receiving all the guests is the Chief of Court, he will welcome all. And inside the Master of Ceremonies (or other members of the court) will guide the guests along.

When Joachim arrives, command of the honor guard will formally be transferred to him as the highest ranking DRF member present. He will then inspect the honor guard and tell the officer in charge to carry on.
The Frederik arrives and takes command.
And finally QMII herself.

There are several very high ranking officers among the guests, but they are not to take command.

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

Some of the guests were sashes. The sashes are not necessarily of Danish orders, but the highest order they have. That could very well be a high foreign order.

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

The guardsmen are in their finest gala uniform, with the red tunic and a white cord attached to their bearskin caps. That was to prevent them from loosing the cap in battle.
When QMII arrives the fifer and drummer will play the Colour March, which doubles as a salute.

Mary and Frederik do look a little tired (jet-lagged/sun-burned); it makes them look older - but well, Frederik is turning 50 this year...

They haven't arrived yet. Apparently they should be around 19h10.

Stunning new red dress on Mary. Quite a daring cleavage but very fitting.

Marie is in a white gown with gold lace. Also very beautiful.

That's it, the show is over.

Now we will wait for our news sniffers to dig up the first photos.

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

What happens now is that the guests will greet the DRF who are lined up. In order of rank.
The guests will then wait in an adjacent hall.

Then the DRF will enter the room, and when that happens QMII will do a curtsy for the guests. She is symbolically curtsying Denmark. That happens this time of year only.
Mary and our Marie are said to also curtsy at the same time.

I assume that Frederik will bow when his time comes. Not wearing a headdress inside he will not salute.

Oops, I already seemed to recognize the dress... we'll see how well they are able to camouflage their jetlag (haven't seen the livestream, so waiting for the pictures)
