Several screencaps from inside the parliament:

Yes dazz, both Mary and Marie have to curtsey to Prince Henrik - he ranks above them as spouse to the reigning monarch.

Great video, I love watching the Princess' curtsy to Her Majesty in the line when she arrives. Such respect and pagentry. They family looks well to me on a fresh fall day in Denmark.

The Crown Princess has favoured a muted wardrobe this past week. Certainly considered diplomatically elegant. Her evident partiality for black could not be more apparent and imo, she wears it very very well. The use of grey has also been consistent and the hat, while not a favourite of mine I must confess, contrasts well with the coatdress. I just love how Mary proceeds from the vehicle around to the steps and acknowledges the waiting crowds opposite.

Princess Marie looks resplendent in what appears to me as being a shade of BRG (British Racing Green). The coordinating Pillbox hat is very becoming and compliments her face. Her hair is beautifully fashioned. A truly Parisian élan.

As a consort of a Reigning Monarch, he's above both Mary and Marie in the precedence list. As such, it's both a sign of respect and protocol demand to curtsey (although I don’t imagine there would be a great fuss if they didn’t – it’s more respect than protocol). You are quite right about the kiss/curtsey part - it's curtsey first and then, if close relationships exist, embrace and kiss. I don't know why the ladies did it the other way round in this case.

I really liked how all ladies looked.
Mary was very elegant in that black coat and white skirt, although the hat is not my favourite. The shoes were beautiful and well-matched too.
I absolutely loved Marie’s green coat and especially the hat with the matching clutch: she looked gorgeous.
The Queen looked very nice, although the shoes somewhat spoilt the look. This picture gave me quite a fright though: at first, I thought the car’s antenna was part of the hat.
Not quite sure about Princess Benedikte’s look.

I think both the Crown Princess and Princess Marie looked lovely today but I was especially fond of Marie's outfit. The colour really suits her. Unfortunately the video didn't play for me so I didn't get to see the curtseys

While Mary looked very good, it was Marie who looked outstanding. In closeups, one could see how expressively her eyes were made up. Her outfit suited her very well, even though the style looked like something from the 1940s. She looked prim, petite, beautiful and extremely well put together.

Great style.

Can't say that Joachim's sense of shoe style matched his wife's impeccable outfit. Were those spats he was wearing? Aren't those supposed to be sporty? Liked his longer hair, looked less military. The three piece suit was also nice.

Mary, though a bit elegant, looked so very somber with all that black. This is all my own opinion, of course.

Cool

Loved the pictures of the Royal Family during the proceedings. They all appeared bored at one point. The women were dressed lovely as usual except Marie's coat seemed to need a bit more of a fit, it looked too big for her in some spots.

ImageShack -

they all look so bored!!! I've always thought they enjoy all this. Haha they all look like they'd rather be somewhere else esp the queen, prince henrik and fred. The others aren't so obvious, they were hiding it pretty well
