Tomorrow Tuesday tha Danish Parliament will be opened after the summer holiday and as always the DRF are honoured guests.

The members of the DRF will arrive at the Parliament in introverted order of rank.
I.e. Princess Benedikte first. Then Joachim and our Marie. Frederik and Mary and finally the Regent Couple.
They will all be recieved at the bottom of the stairs and lining the first flight of stairs are the members of the Presidium of the Parliament with the highest ranking, the Chairman of the Parliament, first.
After being greeted the members of the DRF will gather at the first landing, repos or whatever you call it, halfway up the stairs.
When the Regent Couple have joined the rest of the family and they have greeted each other, they will all be escorted into the Parliament and to the gallery in which they will sit.
That also takes place in order of rank. The Chairman of the Parliament escorts QMII, second chairman escorts Prince Henrik and so on.

Traditionally the photographers will focus on the DRF during the Prime Minister's speech and the pictures where they look bored stiff or even better, sleeping, will be published.

Thanks for all the pics and clips

I don't pretend to know anything about fashion but I know what I like.
Mary looked absolutely great. That's how you do it, Mary.
Our Marie looked lovely, delicate - with a gansta-chick touch, with that hat.
QMII looked... pinkish. Perhaps a tribute to the export of pork?

You mean of Frederik with his hands out of pockets?

- There is of course a perfectly rational explanation for seeing a perfect gentleman like Joachim with his hands in his pockets.
It's bet you see, between brothers.
I know from "sources" that Joachim prior to todays event said to Frederik: "I bet you can't keep your hands out of your pockets from the moment you leave your car to all of us walk inside". Being the sport he is, Frederik accepted the bet.
What we are seeing here in this picture is Joachim, being the jester he is, attempting to lure Frederik into putting his hands in his pockets and thus losing the bet.
And as you can tell from this picture: Se billederne: Folketingets åbning - sn.dk - Sjællands Nyheder - Danmark
Frederik is having withdrawel symptoms and that's why he is desperatly keeping his hands on his back.

And on this day, while the PM is giving His/her speech it's tradition to try and catch the moment when the DRF are "napping" or looking decidedly bored, while listening to a more often than not very boring speech.

Here is a gallery from the past: TV 2 Gallery

And we have the first pics from this year, in BT: http://www.bt.dk/danmark/se-billeder...er-folketinget

A clip from TV2 showing the arrival of the DRF: Prinsesserne valgte efterårsfarver - TV 2 Nyhederne

As always they are met by the chairman of the Parliament, Mogens Løkketoft and the rest of the Presidium of the Parliament in descending order.
The DRF arrive in ascending order, with Princess Benedikte, then Joachim with our Marie, followed by M&F and finally the Regent Cuple.
Until QMII has arrived and been greeted the rest of the DRF wait for her Majesty on the repos of the stairs, before they are all escorted inside.
Again by rank.

The Chairman escorts Her Majesty.
The second chairman, Bertil Haarder, escorts Prince Henrik and so on.

ADDED: Observe how Joachim at some point, as a curtesy to his brother, buries his hands deep in his pockets.

Thanks Muhler some great photos.

I think this year if we see Princess Mary having a nap, she could be forgiven after all the travelling and events she has attended recently.

And of course something always goes wrong.

Ups - blomsterpigerne kom for sent - TV 2 Nyhederne

In this case, the flowers were late. Female members of the DRF recieve flowers by the corresponding number in rank of the Presidium of the Parliament.
However, Benedikte arrived and were greeted - and no flowers...
So the flowers had to be hurried in.

Oh well, the opening of the Parliament only takes place on the first Tuesday in October every year, and the DRF are only invited every year, and they are only recieved with flowers every year - at the same time.

And here is a gallery from TV2 of the DRF: http://galleri.tv2.dk/Nyhederne/58065741/0/
