Perhaps we were optimistic and hoped to see pictures of the departure on the 19th. But you are right, it officially ends tomorrow already.

The NOS website says it will broadcast the king's speech live, on 20:00 on www.nos.nl, which is rather surprising.

The above post by kapenot88 contains photos of the Dutch State visit to Denmark (Day 1).

Crown Princess Mary's hat and hairstyle look awkward to me. Mme Helle Thorning-Schmidt looks rough in a red suit.

Prince Richard zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg was the scapegoat for the romance of Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands with Claus von Amsberg.

Via Prince Richard, his friend Claus von Amsberg (a German aristocrat) was invited for the pre-wedding ball of his sister Princess Tatiana zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg with Prince Moritz, Landgrave of Hessen. It was there, on that ball, that Prince Willem-Alexander's mother and father definitely fell for each other.

What a wonderful geste for Prince Richard to travel to the airport for the welcome ceremony!

DR1 are right now covering the arrival of the guests for the gala dinner at Christiansborg.
One commentator is the former master of ceremony, Christian Eugen Olsen, who must be said to be eminently suited for that task!

Tv2 cover the speeches and state visit at 20.50.

- But lets have a look at the main event tomorrow: The visit to the island of Samsø.
Apart from being an idyllic holiday island with surprisingly nice summer weather (something to do the geography), the island is also 100 % covered by sustainable energy, which means that the island energy wise is carbon neutral. That makes the island and it's 4.000 inhabitants a living showcase for the Danish export in sustainable energy solutions. There is good money, very good money, in carbon neutral energy!

On top of that Samsø, where I often went on holiday as a child, has the by far best potatoes in DK.

Here are some idyllic pics from the island. Some twenty years ago I met an American war veteran who had settled on the island. Here he and his shattered nerves had found peace, in every meaning of the word.

Is Christiansborg the usual venue for State Banquets? I thought these were usually held in one of the four mansions of Amalienborg?

Wasn't that the new Lord Chamberlain, Michael Ehrenreich?
I saw him greet the arriving guests.

The most common place for a gala dinner is at Fredensborg, followed closely by Christiansborg and only ocassionally at Amalienborg.

Ah merci. I believe the venue at Christiansborg can house the most guests for diner?


Just saw Princess Marie arriving on TV2, no smiles and no greeting towards the guards, hmmm...


How great that the Danes broadcast the arrival of the guests!!!



I would have "spiced up" that entrance to Christiansborg with flower arrangements and guards lining the stairs with torchlights. It looks a bit empty and cold, so now and then I had the idea the video is frozen but it were just the guards making no any move.

I think it´s called a 3 day visit, because King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima are in Denmark from the 17th to the 19th ie. leaving DK on the 19th

Hmm, didn´t I hear Chr. Eugen-Olsen telling that State Banquets is most at Christiansborg? Or perhaps it was the journalist from DR.

Because I agree with you, Muhler, that the most common place is Fredensborg, then Christiansborg and then Amalienborg.

I wonder how they choose where a state banquet is to be held

I heard it has also to do with the size of the venue, Christiansborg having the biggest space for a state banquet of the three palaces?

Queen Máxima wears the big sapphire tiara she wore for the Inaguration but back in the original setting with higher Cengter and a bis sappire broosh. Queen Margrethe as expected the Orange-Nassau pearl suite.

I saw it. I missed a collier but with the naked shoulders and the overpowering diadem I understand the choice to go without a collier.
