Indeed. Everybody knows Sweden is the capital city of Oslo.

I'm more puzzled they consider 12 degrees C as chill! Why, you can almost wear a T-shirt today.

12C degrees is cold to me. I guess people used to a colder weather will find 12C degrees quite pleasant. But I live in the south of Portugal, and we have a warm weather, and 12C is cold indeed to all of us. Depends on the region you live and what you are used to.

A BT gallery: Se billederne: Her ankommer toppen af Danmark til gallamiddag

The DRF and guests: http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...70-mexiprs.jpg
http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...71-mexiprs.jpg
http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...72-mexiprs.jpg
Do we know who the Mexican lady sitting between Joachim and Frederik is?
I see Mary is sitting between PH and Fadbamsen (slang for a cold glass of beer from the tap) aka the PM, Lars Lkke.
http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...73-mexiprs.jpg
Benedikte arriving.
http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...74-mexiprs.jpg
http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...78-mexiprs.jpg
Joachim and our Marie. Notice that Joachim is wearing black shoes. But I'm sure he would like to give in to his inner hippe.
http://a.bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...79-mexiprs.jpg
Mads Mikkelsen with wife. He is wearing two decorations. One is Danish. What about the other? They said they came directly from Amalienborg, could it be a Mexican decoration?

M&F arriving.

It sure does.

In the summer it's quite normal with a temperature at night at around 12 degrees C and I have often walked several kilometers home from town in my youth, wearing a T-shirt. - Okay, it helps being slightly intoxicated.

Oh my really? I think we never had 12C at night in the summer. So I suppose if you had 30C during the day on a normal day, you would find it extremelly hot. For me 30C is warm but rather normal temperature. I find extremelly hot close to 40C, but it's not rare to happen (especially in the center of Portugal) neither impossible to withstand

At 30 degrees I'm immobilized. At 40 I'd shut myself inside a fridge and refuse to come out!

22 degrees and a slight breeze is perfect for me.

It's the Order of Dannebrog. The Grand Commander's Cross I think.

In the summer our average is about 35. I wouldn't consider 30 extremely hot. Summer evenings rarely get below 20 here (if the day was in the 30's) unless there is a storm coming in. But when you live in a climate where at least 4 months of the year the temp is -15 and below, plus 12 is quite pleasant. At the end of summer we would be complaining about fall coming and starting to think a jacket if the day temp was 12. But in the spring, after months of bundling up, 12 seems positively warm and time to ditch the layers. I haven't ditched long sleeves just yet but no coat and we are at about 13.

We are all talking about degrees, but 30C with humidity is diferent from 30C from a dry summer. I'm not used to cold, I only live fine with a warm weather be it normal o extremelly hot, either is fine for me. I was in Oslo, Norway two weeks ago, and it was 4C, It was cold and I became sick (even with lots of clothes).

Did any danes notice the change when mentioning Prince Henrik? He is no longer called "Prince Consort", but again he is called "Prince Henrik".

Also the website has this change from "Prince Consort" to "His Royal Highness Prince Henrik".

Not just HM, Benedikte, Henri, Frederik, Mary, Joachim and Marie are all wearing the Order of the Aztec Eagle. Mexico's highest order.

This is most likely down to his "retirement" from royal duties.

I think it means putting their gloves on is a "stupid" thing to do while standing "at attention" during the national anthem. Basically, it is very disrespectful and I was very surprised myself.

Is it possible that the anthems had finished and it was just music being played while the Queen and President inspected the Guard of Honour? Both Mary and Marie seem too well experienced at such events to commit such an obvious faux pas.
