I know, they always look SO bored. I think this is my favorite photo of facial expressions:

Hm.. I thought Marie stole the show; she looked great in the green number, and her hat was hot! I wish that CP Mary would try to vary her head gear; she has an awful lot of high-crowned and broad-brimmed hats!
I'm certain that other styles would also suit her!

We cannot blame the royals for looking a bit bored or even sleepy; there are several speeches they have to listen to; and if they're not very interested in politics and/or if they don't understand everything said (Marie esp.), it's no wonder if they're tempted so let the thoughts wander or even nod off.

Wow, that pattern on Mary's dress is horrid, IMO. Marie looks great, although she has some frighteningly high heels.

Does anyone know why Benedikte does not curtsy to Margrethe while Mary and Marie do?

I wonder if they have lunch together afterwards. Is there a reception, or does somebody run and grab some sandwiches?(just kidding)Or does everyone just go about there day?

Thank you for the clips and pics.

Eventhough it may not appear so, it's actually a very formal affair.

The DRF arrive in the reverse order of rank. Benedikte, Joachim, Frederik, QMII.
Due to the status of the DRF they are recieved at the bottom of the stairs, by the Chairman of the Parliament, Thor Pedersen.
He holds the most distinguished position a Danish citizen can have, outside of marrying into the DRF.
After him are other members of the Bureau of the Parliament, who acts at second chairman, third and so on.
They also greet the members of the DRF, as they walk up to the first landing, or whatever you call it of the stairs. In order of precedence naturally.
After all the member of the DRF have been gathered at the landing, they are now escorted up the remaining part of the stair into the Parliament.
That also follow a strict protocol. The Chairman, Thor Pedersen (Liberal), himself escort QMII.
The second chairman, Mogens Lykketoft (Social Democrat), escort Henrik.
The third chairman, Søren Espersen (Danish People's Party), escort Frederik.
The fourth, Holger K. Nielsen (Socialist People's Party), escort Mary.
The fifth, Helge Adam Møller (The Conservative), escort Joachim.
I don't know who escort Marie and Benedikte, but they are not members of the Board.

A neat and actually sweet little detail is that Joachim, as so many times before, allow himself to dispense with the protocol and be a gentleman thus letting our Marie exit the car at the red carpet, so she hasn't have to walk all around the car.
Frederik is the Crown Prince, so Mary has to do the walking.

And isn't it nice to see, once again, that Frederik's arms are long enough for him to reach his pockets?

I thought the exact same thing. They seem to be a very close-knit family, and they don't seem to show the world that they LOOK like one, you can almost feel it.
The ladies are beautiful as always. And Mary has such wondeful legs

Thanks Marika and Dazzling.

I'm not sure I liked Mary's coat but it did suit her, and pattern and style-wise did disguise her bump. She has an immense curtsey though! On the pictures I wondered what she doing, and then in the video I saw it in action. I think she has bouncy shins!

I thought Marie looked stunning. The whole outfit was gorgeous, and she shone.

Mary looked great. Nothing clashing. Bold, clashing means "not going together".
