What? No speech from the thone??? How awful. Obviously I much prefer the British approach. Anything that takes attention away from the politicians cannot be a bad thing, particularly if it were Margarethe II in tiara, jewels and full court dress delivering a speech. cheers.

its not a fashion show but we just love to see the cloths, dresses, bags, bla bla. Its so great. besides i am not a danish so i could never give my opinion about a danish political speech made by the Queen. so i prefer to save myself for the cloths.

I actually don't like Mary's outfit. The color's dull and the hat. She likes wearing hats with flowers like that. It's looks cheap to me and the flower doesn't go well with her whole outfit.

In light of the recent outfits worn by Princess Marie, I just hope that she will make an effort and carefully choose an outfit.

The Queen is wearing, as Josette says, black.
Crown Princess Mary is wearing her cream and red printed coat, with her red Philip Treacy hat.
Princess Mary is wearing a brown hat (looks in the video) and a white jacket.

I don't know about anyone else but this video is awful. The royals look about 3 ft tall and as round as an orange. The second one is great though. I love Mary's hair with the curl and Marie looks beautiful too. I love the way her prince waits with his arm at the ready. Terribly romantic

I've always liked the coat and hat which Mary is wearing today. However, I could do without the curly-cue hair do. Marie's outfit looks good ... but, the hat is way too big (high) for her size. She looks out of proportion.

Kudos to Benedikte for having today's best royal look!

Hello everyone - Let's please leave the fashion discussion in the fashion forums. If you have anything to add about the opening of parliament though, this is the correct thread.

Thanks

A few things

1 - Marie wanted to be hand by hand with her husband when she stpe out of the car but...it wasn't time yet Marie...a lot to learn!
2 - Did you see how Frederick ste out of the car?It was not a formal atitude IMO!
3 - Did you saw that frederick didin't wait for his wife and Joaquim did?
4 - Marie looks elegant although hat doesn't flatter her at all
5 - Hate Mary's hair but it looks different and for that she has my applause
6 - Love her coat, always did!

A couple of more clips from today: Here and here. Plus a funny photo of Princess Benedikte, who looks cross, and Joachim who always seems to be caught gazing at Mary during Parliament (I've noticed he's done this the past several openings.) Marie looks lost and otherwise bored (guessing that she still doesn't understand the language at this point; thus that is why she looks confused with a faux smile), and Frederik looks beyond happy with Mary.
