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.

Tomorrow is the first Tuesday in October and as such the day when the Parliament opens after the summer holiday.

The DRF are invited as guests of honor and as such they sit in the gallery, not on the floor. - The kings initially did that, but that caused resentment among a number of MP's who felt the kings were "intruding" on the Parliament.

It follows the same procedure as every year, but I'll go through it briefly for newbies.
The DRF members arrive in reversed order of precedence. I.e. Benedikte first, followed by Joachim and our Marie. Then M&F and finally QMII.

They will all be received at the bottom of the stairs by the Presidium of the Parliament. They consists of the Chairman of the Parliament, followed by the 2. 3. and so on chairman and also the manager of the Parliament. Who run the more practical things in regards to the Parliament - like buying paperclips, looking after the maintenance and keeping within budget.
The Chairman of the Parliament is elected among the MP's, while the rest of the presidium are appointed from the individual parties. I.e. the largest party supply the 2. chairman, the second largest party the 3. chairman and so on.

Having been received by the Presidium the DRF members walk up to the repos where they wait for the rest to join them, before they are all escorted inside. Again, that's in order ot precedence. The Chairman always escort the Monarch. The 2. chairman accompany the Crown Prince. The 3. chairman accompany the Crown Princess, because she in regards to the protocol holds the same rank as her husband. And so on. Benedikte will as such form the rearguard.

When the DRF enter their seats in the gallery the MP's are supposed to stand up as a sign of respect - some will opt to stay outside until the DRF have been seated. - We can discuss that tomorrow if you wish.

The Nestor of the Parliament will welcome the MP's and the DRF and preside over the formalities. Are their any objections against the Chairman and the Presidium. There isn't - that would be a sensation!
The Chairman, who is a woman, but who insist of being called Chairman, will give a short speech, welcoming everybody back for holiday, and especially extend a welcome to the DRF and then express a hope for a fruitful co-operation in the year to come. Then she will leave the floor for the PM, who basically will give a "state of the Realm" speech and outline some of the ambitions of the government for the next year.

While that happens the cameras will look among the MP's and especially the DRF, hoping to catch them in a moment where they look particularly bored, or even better napping.
That's tradition and has been a kind of standing joke for decades.

All this will be covered live and you can rest assured that someone will post links tomorrow.
