For a uniform nerd like me this is great!

Mary is wearing the brand new mess-uniform for women in the military.
Frederik is wearing the navy mess-uniform.

Mary's uniform, complete with her lieutenant's diamonds, is the same for all branches of the armed forces.

this is indeed a great touch!

" "as the first ever H.R.H. The Crown Princess wears this evening The Armed Forces' uniform for women. The dress is joint defense, that is to say, the same for all branches and it is made of black satin wool and has a black belt with gold embroidered oak tree and floral motif. The work of designing a new uniform for women in the Armed Forces began some years ago, when a group of female officers in the Air Force started the project. The new uniform enters into the uniform provisions of the various brances on the same terms as the old company uniform for women."

Indeed, Polyesco.

The captions to the Belgaimage is nonsense.
They are obviously unaware that Mary is lieutenant in the Army Home Guard. There is no such thing as a uniform honoring the navy. Apart from that her lieutenant insignias are from the army.

Frederik's uniform?

That's the navy winter mess-uniform.

As the name suggests it's used for formal occasions in the officers mess or as in this case for festive events that is a level under a gala event.
Just as with the full dress uniform (which was intended for use on formal parades) you wear medals and orders, if you got any.
Not having served abroad, let alone distinguished himself in combat, or been wounded, the only medals Frederik can wear are good conduct and service length medals. Everything else are orders. Including the stars to The Order of the Elephant and The Order of Dannebrog. No sashes worn, this is after all not a gala event.
In contrast to the full dress uniform you don't wear a saber or a dagger to your mess-uniform.
Also, you wear flat shoes to your mess uniform, rather than boots.

Mmyes. Sort of.

It was basically identical to the male uniform, except that it was optional for women whether they wanted to wear a skirt to just under the knees or black pants. (White for the navy summer uniform.)
The jacket was also sewn into figure. Hourglass.

Here is the male winter navy mess uniform:

And during the summer and in hot climate, the uniform is white.

And here is the army mess uniform, first with belly-sash:
https://images.guloggratis.dk/50/196..._0_0_0_0_2.jpg
And without sash, this is the one you should compare to the blazer Mary is wearing:
https://images.lauritz.com/images/CB...7505?width=300

And finally we have the air force mess uniform:

- You will not see our Marie in a mess-uniform though. Even though she holds a rank that is equivalent to lieutenant, the Civil Defense don't use mess-uniforms.

Yes, it's a cape.

The one behind the idea of creating a feminine mess-uniform, Elena Glaser, is over the moon with joy!
After suggesting the idea, she was backed up by higher ranking female officers from all the branches and a designer was put to work on the design.

She worked on designing a mess-uniform that was not merely "a male uniform with a skirt." Believing such a uniform was misunderstood egalitarianism - within a branch that very much realize what egalitarianism is, and what it isn't.
(She is presumably referring to the military necessity, that while any woman should advance by merit on equal footing with any man, there are functions where women physically are rarely able keep up with men, and disregarding that fact can get the women in question as well as their comrades killed.)

When she left the air force in 2012 she thought the project had been dropped, so she was pretty delighted when she saw Mary as the first wearing the new uniform.

That is an impressive achievement, and I'm very happy for the designers involved in the project. It must be very gratifying to see something worked on for so long finally presented to the public, and by the lovely CP Mary to boot.

Well done!

Tomorrow, H.M. The Queen holds a memorial concert for Prince Henrik in Fredensborg Palace Church. The Crown Prince Couple and Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attend, at. 19:00.

"On February 20, 2019, it is a year since Prince Henrik funeral from Christiansborg Palace Church. For this reason, Her Majesty the Queen has decided to invite the royal family, a number of Prince's close friends and representatives from the Royal Family and others to a memorial concert at Fredensborg Palace Church.

Here, the Royal Danish Academy of Music will be responsible for a music program that reflects Prince Henrik's lifelong interest in music. After the concert, the Queen holds a meeting in the Kuppelsalen at Fredensborg Castle."

No picture of the Queen as she already was at Fredensborg Palace.
The memorial service is private otherwise.

Nice clip from F&M's arriving where Frederik gives the press a thumb up on their way in as the press say something nice to them. You could hear it in the live broadcast.

As Prince Nikolaos's photo exhibition has already been discussed at his own currents events thread for some time now, posts about members of the family attending Prince Nikolaos's exhibition opening have been moved to that thread:

Nice.

And I'm willing to bet that we will see Mary wearing her three captains stars on her shoulder straps.
