Great choice by the Queen / the royal floristers to opt for tulips as floral arrangements at the State Banquet!

Right, now that all the guests and the royals have arrived. The guests will now line up to greet the royals personally, before going into the hall, where the tables are laid.

Later on the royals will enter the hall to a fanfare and then proceed to their places.

The orchestra is the Music Corps of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment.

Probably a couple of, what do you call it, royal groupies?

They use the big hall with the modern gobelins, I see. It looks splendid.

The King has been generous in decorating the who-is-who inside the Danish Household and society. I see a lot of Dutch decorations, worn by the Court Marshall, the Master off the Ceremonies, the Kammerherre, the Hofdame, some politicians, high officials, all with a Dutch decoration.

I must say the ladies, Dutch and Danish, look very well dressed (I mean the guests at the banquet). Very tasteful. I am surprised Queen Máxima did not travel with her Grandmastress, Marie Louise Baroness Van Zuylen van Nijevelt - den Beer Poortugael but "just" with one of her Hofdames, Ottoline-Antoinette Gaarlandt van Voorst van Beesd.

I see the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs has been given the Grand Cross of the Dannebrogordenen. And of course, Queen Máxima has now the Elefantenordenen as well... Congratulations.

The Crown Prince and -Princess have been given the highest civil Dutch Order already (Grootkruis in de Orde van de Nederlandse Leeuw), wow! That is extraordinary, the King and Queen have bypassed the second highest Order for the crown princely couple. Speaks volumes for the King's high regard and appreciation towards Frederik and Mary!

I missed the arrival of Fred & Mary because the transmission broke off. What did she wear?


No surprise that Queen Margrethe wore the tiara with the Dutch origin. But I did not expect to see Maxima in blue, although it works well with order of the elephant. Great to see that the big sapphire tiara is convertible, I love those versatile lego jewels.

I missed their arrival too as my link broked off as well.

Something else... What time do you think such a gala ends? Frederik & Mary and Willem-Alexander & Maxima is scheduled to board the ferry from to Samsø already 8:15am tomorrow morning. Plus it takes at least 1:30 hours to drive from Copenhagen to Kalundborg where the ferry is sailing from in the morning traffic. I guess they don't get many hours of sleep to night.

Regarding the floral arrangements:
"The floral decorations at the State Banquet consist of carnations and spring flowers, primarily narcissuses in green, white and cream-coloured shades. The flowers are arranged lightly and are placed on the tables in centrepieces that originate from Frederik VI's dessert service with motifs of sea lions, small guardian spirits and dolphins"

From kongehuset.dk

So no tulips.. but still lovely.

The big show starts now! M&F and J&M arriving.

Ah, for once Frederik don't sit next to the Prime Minister. Good!
If she should bite him, he would have to sleep in a coffin in the basement for eternity...

So Mary wears her Wedding tiara and not even in the pearl setting. But interesting to see that she got the highest dutch order and not a lower ranking one as of for example in Sweden the wive of the Heir to the Throne get the lower ranking Order of the Polar Star and only after the accession the Seraphim.

Oh no! Mary only wears the small wedding tiara. Does that mean that the return invitation tomorrow will be without tiaras?

The King really must have genuine appreciation for Crown Prince Frederik and -Princess Mary. It is most unusual that a crown princely couple already receives the highest decorations of the Netherlands. What a lovely geste.

The Dutch should do the same like the Danes and broadcast this sort of events too, via the NOS News Channel. I really enjoy the broadcast by TV2. Queen Margrethe's Orange-Nassau heirloom diadem is awesomely beautiful in real life.

A very good speech from Queen Margrethe - the last bit touched my heart

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima will return in April to celebrate the 75th birthday of Queen Margrethe, said the king in his speech

They already did when the King and Queen of Sweden as well the President of China were in Amsterdam. More pictures from unexpected angles. I feel the King will introduce more possibilities. His mother was extremely strict in that aspect (like the British by the way: not even pictures from other royals than the Queen during the banquet for the Mexican visit!)

The Prinsgemalen looks a bit off-key somehow... (maybe that is normal, haha). Queen Margrethe and Queen Máxima and the other royal ladies look superb.
