Was M-T of Luxembourg there? An earlier report said she would attend.

Fantastic pictures Anna! Thank you for sharing them. Everyone looked sensational! Mary was my favourite, followed by Benedikte then Laurentien.

I have two questions about the apparel worn at this event:

1) What was the weather like in Denmark on this occasion that Margrethe was wearing a fur jacket yet Victoria was bare shouldered and in a thin evening top? Benedikte was in a heav-ish jacket, Mary was in a suit jacket, Laurentien was bare-arms and Alexandra in a long-sleeved dress. Very confusing!

2) What was the dress code exactly for this occasion? It didn't seem as obvious with Margrethe, Benedikte and Laurentien in gala/evening dresses, Victoria in pants and a beaded top which was glittery but not quite dressy enough for a gala, and Mary and Alexandra somewhere in between their mother-in-law and aunt and Victoria in semi-formal outfits -- Alexandra being a bit more dressier than Mary though.

I also liked Mary's dress very much, but I would like to see it without the jacket, it seem a strapless dress to me....

Mary's dress is most probably strapless or have spaghetti straps, could be made by Heartmade. She wore the dress previously to Bent Fabricius's 80th Birthday celebrations on December 7, 2004. Since, she was wearing an overcoat over the dress and there were no pics from inside the party. We were unable to see the "top" of the dress.

My favorite would have to be Laurentien, followed by Alexandra and Mary.

Anyways, here are more pics of the event I found from various other sources.

Thanks for all the photos.:)

My favorite outfit of the night was the one by Crown Princess Mary.She looked elegant and chic.

I was very impressed by the upper portion of Princess Alexandra's dress when I first saw it, until I noticed the flower pattern continued throught the dress. I think the pattern was too much for an dress and those pink yarn balls around the hemline and sleeves reminded me of newborn socks. Her make up was very lovely though.

Princess Benedikte surprised me with that high slit in her dress!

I was also pleasantly surprised by how well Prince Joachim looked. He looked very dashing and debonair in his pin striped suit and lavender tie.

1) It's been very nice weather for the past few days. Sunny, and getting warmer, though I certainly think it must have been a bit chilly for Victoria's bare shoulders. Especially since she had to pose for a few of the photographers and things like that.

2) As it wasn't an official stately/royal event, it wasn't gala, I was informed by the Danish television channel DR1. Which explains the differences in clothes. Though they might have co-ordinated it a bit.

Mary looked gorgeous, elegant, chic and regal once more :)

I'm not too wild about Alexandra's choice, very chichi IMO. In her first years as princess she seemed to dress with more class.

I think Marys dress is french, from Celine, she looks nice.I dont know what Alexandra was thinking with that dress especially the fur things at the bottom and around the arms, I also find her make up to much.

I must say Princess Benedikte has very nice legs for a woman of her age, and that was quite a dearing slit

Laurentien defenetly did not look as good as at Kronoborg

Margrethe must be sad its soon summer so she cant wear her ever present fur coats anylonger

The royals who attended the celebration really looked great especially with their attires.

I love the look of Princess Laurentein especially the heels she wore which looked so good on her. The color fits her and her whole look was just fitting for her.

Crown Princess Mary looked elegant as ever in her attire. Though she was able to wear already the attire last year from a previous function but yet she was stylish enough to look for ways on how to make it look great to wear. I love her make-up because it wasn't overly done so with her hair.

Princess Alexandra was uniquely dressed as usual and she really showed her creative side during that night. She looked elegant in her heels and she was looking great during the night. The flower pattern was impressive but it just went through with all the dress. But it looked great though. The dress would have been better also if the pink balls around the sleeves and the hemline were not present. I must say that she really loves flowers and pink is one of her favorite shade. The flower accessory on her hair was great and her make-up was lovely.

Crown Princess Victoria opted to be simple yet looking good still during the event. Though she has worn the attire already last year. She should have worn something like a gown or a dress than in pants. Her make-up was fine.

Queen Margrethe was really wrapped during the event. Her hair was nicely done. I think her gown was fabulous though I haven't seen it yet because she was wearing the fur coat. The color of the gown was great.

Princess Benedikte looked elegant in her attire and her heels were nice. She has nice legs for a woman in her age....

i don't think mary's coat was really regal for this kind of event. a cardigan can be nice for a day event, if it's weel combined, but i don't think it's really suitable for a gala event.
i think alex was as elegant as always. she combined that (not so nice) dress with perfect complements.

Thanks for your explanation of the weather and dress code norwegianne. I was rather confused, particularly on the matter of the weather!

And until Alisa and Larzen both mentioned it, I hadn't even noticed the high slit on Benedikte's dress -- very surprising indeed! Not too bad for a woman of any age! While on the topic of Beneditke, where was her husband and did any of her children also attend this event?

A shame that Anne Marie couldn't attend, too. She must've grown up with the stories of Hans Christian Andersen, too, as many of us did I'm sure.

According to the Danish Royal Website, Princess Benedikte's children and son-in-law were supposed to attend the events this weekend. I haven't seen any pics. Have any of you?
