I agree, Frederik's haircut serves him good

Mary, Benedikte and QMII all looked superb and Marie looked good too, but this was far from my all-time favourite look on her. So horrible with QMII's back, my own grandmother has osteoarthritis too and it's a horrible disorder.

I actually just casually bumped into our Minister for the Environment, Ida Auken, when shopping in the local mall today after the opening of the parliament. One of the few people in this government (*cough*) who actually does her job in accordance to the original values of her party.

A report from BT: http://www.bt.dk/nyheder/kunne-ikke-...plaget-af-gigt
For the first time ever QMII had to take the lift up to the royal seats. The rest walked the stairs.
What is wrong w/HM? The last couple of months there have instances of her sitting at events she normally would have stood for or taking an elevator instead of the stairs? Something is not right and is also worrying to see too.

I believe it's been said that she has severe back pains, which would account for the sitting and elevator.

TV2 is right now sending live from the opening of the Parliament. All except the Regent Couple have now arrived and they are chatting on the first repos on the stairs.
Our Marie (and Frederik!) is talkative as always.

It's very windy today as you may be able to tell later on.

Let's go through the protocol again.

The DRF arrive in reverse order of rank, in regards to the Line of Succession and they are recieved at the foot of the stairs as the honored and invited guests they are.
Once the Regent Couple have arrived the DRF will enter the door of the Parliament, this time in decending order and each member of the DRF will (naturally) be escorted inside, also in decending order. I.e. the Chairman of the Pariament will escort QMII, the second chairman will escort PH and so on.

QMII's knees are fine today, she's walking up the main stairs today.
PH on the other hand took the lift up.

ADDED: Once the DRF have taken their places the show can start.
The nestor of the Parliament, I.e. the member who has been a member the longest, will chair the proceedings in regards to electing the Chairman, the second chairman and so on. That's usually a formality. In the members of the Presidium (where the chairmen sits) are appointed from the parties with most seats. If two parties have the same number of seats a lot will be made. That happened today and it was again the nestor who drew the lots.
Then the Chairman of the Parliament takes his place at the rostrum an starts by welcoming the members and also the honored guests from the DRF. They are each welcomed, by name and title. I.e. His Royal Highness the Crown Prince (because the can only one crown prince) and Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess. (Again, there can be only one crown princess).

Yeah there was a good family talk there... I don't saw the beginning, but Frederik and Joachim held together and had a long brother talk, while Mary and Benedikte and Marie had them a woman talk. Mary explained and explained with funny facial expressions, but this year we couldn't hear what. Sometimes when it is less windy we can actually hear what they're talking about.

Now is the time to try to stay awake...


**

ADDED:

Haha oh both the DRF and our politicians are at risk each year for a photographer captures them in a moment of blinking and ends up on the frontpage with a "Zzzzzz".

This year (anti-royal) Ekstrabladet selected to broadcast live from the Royal Box during the entire speech (totally silly IMO, but okay, then they are more than sure that they later today can make a condescending article about one of the royal closing their eyes while blinking)

I managed to take some screenshots along the way. I noted that the Prince Consort were struggling a battle, but that Margrethe used the tactic to study the ceiling very thoroughly to stay awake while F&M used the tactic chit chatting alot with each other along the way to stay awake.

Thank you for the screen shots, Roskilde. Interesting to see the facial expressions in relation to the hands on the clock! All the ladies looked great - love Marie's hat.

The Crown Princess Mary Unofficial Message Board has more pictures and a video. Love that Frederik and Joachim kissed their father. Ah, those European men! Also noticed that PH needed assistance on the stairs.

And here is the DR1 coverage of the opening. We see the DRF arriving from another angle than BB's, which Roskilde kindly posted: VIDEO Se højdepunkterne fra Folketingets åbning | Politik | DR

It's the fourth video.

Thank you for the video Muhler

There is someone who yells when Joachim and Marie are driving past around the 4:43 mark, do you happen to understand what this man is yelling?, I imagine it is not something nice

It remains a pity that the Queen has no role anymore. It can be worse anyway: in Belgium and in Luxembourg there is no any Opening anymore with a royal involved...

I can't exactly make out what he shouts, but you are right, the man was somewhat displeased...
