I wondered who he was when I watched the video, he was clearly trying to make a point in the way he greeted the royals, polite but no deference of any kind, no bowing of the neck, no small talk. It all makes sense now.

I've always thought the greetings on the steps would end with someone getting hurt, a narrow miss for Benedikte there thankfully.

There usually is.

Both public service networks can be expected to air live.
That is DR1 and TV2. - I'm sure our newsdiggers will provide a link tomorrow.
BB may also show live from the opening.

Whoever made that hat and told Her Majesty that she should wear it, face deserves to be slapped, lol. The things she wear sometimes is beyond puzzling.

Well, she is an artist, so I guess we'll just have to accept it as ''artistic expression.'' Everyone else looks nice, though. Benedikte is always elegant.

Thanks for the pics and clips.

I noticed a little elegant detail. When Benedikte had walked up the stairs and stood at the repos, she discreetly began to chat up those nearest to her. - It looks sloppy if she was just standing there on the repos, alone and abandoned - and Benedikte is never sloppy.

The Constitution says that the Parliament opens after the summer holiday on the first Tuesday of October.

The DRF are met at the bottom of the stairs, as the honored guests they are, by the Chairman/Speaker of the Parliament and the Presidium of the Parliament. The members of the Presidium consists of representatives of the four or five largest parties - in order of size. That is: the largest party representative is the second chairman and so on.
The Chairman, - woman in this case, presents flowers to QMII. The second chairman presents flowers to Mary, because she always holds the same rank as her husband. Which is also why Mary was escorted up the stairs and into the Parliament, right behind Frederik, rather than behind Joachim and Benedikte who are in line of succession.
The same thing applies to our Marie, who holds the same rank, protocol wise, as her husband, so she walked in front of Benedikte.

Once inside the nestor of the Parliament takes the rostrum. The chairman of the Parliament is confirmed as being in charge. (That is: There are no one opposing the chairman).
The Chairman takes the rostrum and welcomes all present including the DRF and then give the floor to the Prime Minister, who in his speech give an overview of the current state of affairs of the country and then presents the vision and outline the upcoming policy of the government.
- That in contrast to say the British Parliament where it's the Monarch who speaks on behalf of her government.

While the PM speaks there is a longstanding tradition among photographers and cameramen to try and catch the DRF, but also MP's in situation where they look either bored stiff or nodding away. - And often they succeed.
Of course knowing the cameras are very much on them the DRF try to put on their most neutral face.

This year there was some entertainment. A demonstrator sitting in another gallery, interrupted the speech of the PM and threw flyers. He was quickly apprehended. - And is now charged under the penal code about disturbing the work of the Parliament.
I noticed the security was pretty heavy. The courtyard crawled with uniformed police as well as PET officers.

Very professional. But also: forced smiles all over as the royals once again have to greet each other gleefully in front of the gathered press, live on TV. In truth princess Benedikte lost her husband a few months ago, prince Henrik suffers from dementia and Constantine of Greece is in very ill health which also seems to trouble him emotionally. I hope the 3 sisters can be of support to each other.

How does the Queen have only one flag on her car yet the Crown Prince has two? Also, apart from some people gathered in the courtyard there are not many people on the street to watch as the Queen passes.
