TV2 main channel is showing the gala now and one of the commentators said about Mary wearing a less spectacular tiara, was simply out of respect for Queen Maxima.
Mary and QM are of similar age, so Mary dressed down out of respect and for not being seen trying to upstage a Majesty.

It is the same gown! A daring choice, but appropriate as this is also her inaugural visit as Queen to Denmark

Is HM wearing a new gown? This colour appears a little different from her other gown of similar style.

Jesper H°vring said that it was a new dress made by... Hmm... Was it Birgitte Thaulow? Anyway, he said that Queen Margrethe wore a new dress.

what a shame to see Mary in just her wedding tiara. I was holding out for the Ruby. It would be a bit too grand to wear the Ruby to the return dinner.

As Muhler pointed out earlier then the theory is that CPss Mary opted for the wedding tiara out of respect for Queen Mßxima.

The blue one? No she wore it on April 30th 2013 as well: see picture

The diadem is different, the middle aigrette with large central sapphire is back on top:

April 30th 2013: a large round diamond instead of the middle aigrette (a round bridge flow)

Tonight: with middle aigrette, making the diadem more "gothic" (a more pointy bridge flow)

And a fourth who wished he had the prefix HM too...

Oh, don┤t stand corrected, Duc_et_Pair, I just made it clear, when the light went up for me that there were at least two persons to fit the prefix HM and the word gown

Muhler┤s post:
somehow I imagine Max would have loved to have seen the Ruby out on display. I feel like we see the Ruby tiara so little, this would have been the perfect time for it.

Love Margrethe's new dress. it's a gorgeous cut and color.

I agree. Queen Mßxima is the last one to feel envy about other ladies wearing nice pieces. She knows she has an enormous collection and is able to engage into the eh.... "competition"...

It is not clear how ladies chose. When Queen Beatrix visited Denmark, she wore her smallest diadem, see picture (click on the picture itself to expand). So size seems not important here.

Note also that back then the Queen used her ancient silver. Tonight she used 19th C gilded tableware.

Watching DR's coverage now - much better than TV2's - as usual. Great speeches. But no Margrethe isn't a good speaker, and it gets worse as the years goes me thinks. But the lady is also 75 years.

Mary not wearing her biggest tiara tonight? Over the years we have seen that Mary tends to "dress down" in jewels to events which are not about her/or her and Frederik. Tonight's gala the "main characters" are the Regent couple and the visiting King and Queen of the Netherlands. As the commentators indeed said it's what Mary is so brilliant to and it says a lot about her down to earth personality

It has really been wonderful to see all that warmth. And the King and Queen showing their appreciation for F&M giving them such a high order. The two young couples must definitely feel a special bond and caring for each other. They just have a huge responsibility on their tiny shoulders which only very few in this world can understand.

I agree - I really like Queen Margrethe's dress. It's a style that really suits her and the material is just gorgeous
