Oh, and the shoes have been used before..

To me, it seems as if they were making fun of her (of course, they are not, but it seems that way). Why do they have to laugh like that? It seems, even to them, so ridiculous to do that in this time and age. She looks odd. The whole thing looks odd. Just an opinion.

Ah, but alas, you need more than a perfect curtsy to be a crown princess!

I'm not sure about the Opening of the Danish Parliament, but if anyone can explain does Queen Margrethe II actually gives out the Speech like Queen Elizabeth II, King Harald V, King Carl XVI Gustav or Queen Beatrix?Because it seems that Queen Margrethe sits together with her husband, sons, daughter-in-law and sister not on the throne to deliver the speech like others?

The danish Queen does not speak at the opening of parliament. As the official (not political) head of state she and her family are just present to show their approval of the Folketing (parliament). In Denmark the regent has no political power but it's still her who have to sign the laws before they are valid. She is a symbolic figure. That's the same with the opening of parliament - she has nothing to say but she has to be there to make the opening valid. That's why she sits on a balcony far from the political discussions on the floor...

I think he is wearing his brothers clothes. The trousers and sleeves always look too long and he never does up the bottom button on his jackets.
I would seriously love to take him shopping and give him advice on wearing suits. Maybe he is a stubborn person and doesn't take advice very well.

Loving Mary's coat!! It's gorgeous
The Queen looks great as well Hope she's recovering well from her surgery

A HELLO! magazine article:

MARY AND VICTORIA STYLISH AT PARLIAMENT OPENINGS
Two of Europe's most popular princesses were fulfilling one of their more formal duties on Tuesday as they attended the openings of parliament for their respective countries. And, true to form, Mary of Denmark and Victoria of Sweden added their own inimitable sense of style to the proceedings.

Madde, your pics are amazing, as always!

Or could it perhaps be because every tailor and fashion minded person would tell you that you are never suposed to do up the bottom button on your jacket when wearing a suit? Just a thought....

well my opinion after I saw the video is that the Queen almoust ignore Princes Mary, she wanted to kiss her twice but it seams that she didn't want that to happen. Princess Mary is beautiful as always! Very stylish

Mary is wearing a lightish colour, looks like a light brown maybe?
Benedikte is wearing a sort-of pillbox hat-ish type hat with the tulleish stuff on it

And Benedikte's hat is definitely ...interesting!
Edit: you are right, JessRulz, it's light brown!

You're right, Mary's outfit is more grey-ish than brown-ish. See this picture from Polfoto

Queen Margrethe looks as if she is already sleeping by now... - she is probably not the only one

Yep, many parliamentary members I've seen look as if they're thinking, "one sheep; two sheep; three sheep; zzzzzz"

ETA: Picture of Mary, Frederik, Joachim, Benedikte & Margrethe looking quite bored

LOL - this type of pictures are taken every year on the opening of Parliament

...and no announcement of an engagement between Joachim and Marie Cavallier - as some of the Danish tabloids had speculated about. Even the commentator for DR1 said 'So, no engagement announcement'....

It must be a quite boring act, I understand very well their faces!!!
I would be surprise with an announcement so early, Joaquim has left a broken marriage just a few years ago so I think he must wait for a new commitment and be sure that Marie is the one and they are not dating for so long!!!!

Good Heavens, I had not realised how much like her late mother Princess Benedikte is.
