That's odd.

BB offers an explanation.
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...rs-foedselsdag

Joachim had to decline because he had to do some shooting for a documentary that could not be postponed.

- I still find this odd.
Why couldn't our Marie attend then? She's not involved in the documentary.
And Gustav and Carina?!?

I suspect they are perhaps planning a surprise for Benedikte.

Yeah, I am not buying it. ... Plus after more then 10 years as a princess, Marie can certainly attend this event on her own.

It's not just any other birthday, its the 75th! lots of years of service to the DRF

Another explanation from BB:

Gustav had to excuse himself because of a belly-bug.

Ooookay, then why couldn't Carina go?

Loved the carriage ride for Princess Benedikte but she looked lonely on her own,must be also a sad milestone with out her husband present.

Few additional photos from tonight

The absences are striking - although the timing wasn't helping either. Why wasn't it organized on her birthday or the evening prior? Monday night is not convenient at all for those living and working in other countries.

It again raises the question about Gustav and Carina's relationship... Surely she could have attended alone as she seems to be spending most of her time away ftom Gustav, so no big deal. Same of course for Marie who even lives near by. And Alexander is missing as well (although he features in the birthday girl's official portrait). The Greek royals are somewhat excused as it seems a relatively moderate celebration so they were probably told not to make the trip to Denmark just for this dinner.

You are right.

Carina is Benedikte's daughter-in-law in anything but name and has been so for years. If she isn't to show up, who is?

Nathalie's husband has a good reason for not attending. This takes place on a Monday evening, so it's likely he needs to work.

Okay, a belly-flu. Can happen to anyone. But Carina doesn't need to hold Gustav's hand while he is talking into the big phone in the bathroom, does she?

Okay, Joachim is abroad doing a docu. And even though he would have known for quite some time in advance that his moster will be celebrated tonight, there might be a specific person he needs to film with, or a permit on a location-shoot he needs to adhere to, or a special event he needs to cover in connection with the docu.
But Marie then?
If one of Mrs. Muhler's aunts had a birthday and she had to excuse herself, it would be expected that I showed up.

The Greek royals are excused too. This after takes place on a Monday and they may have other things to do.
And the King, he is very frail.

So, was this celebration something QMII came up with with a pretty short notice? Short enough for a number of guests not being able to attend? Especially since it's on a Monday.

One thing is certain, if those absent do not somehow do a surprise-attendance, then the media here in DK will be ripe with speculations!
It's pretty much a PH not being present at QMII's birthday all over again. I.e. a serious issue within the family.

It would've been nice to see Marie there if Joachim was busy (if she was worried about Henrik and Athena she could have used the nanny - assuming they have one - for the night) but it was lovely to see the royals who were there nevertheless. The footage of Margrethe greeting her sister at the stairs was great to see.

It does seem odd, given that this must have been planned for some time, the RF, the Queen at least, do not seem the type to plan something very last minute.

I'm surprised Marie wouldn't attend without Joachim, in fairness his absence makes it more unusual she doesn't attend. But I guess she could argue someone needs to mind the kids? I mean surely they have a nanny or someone they can trust to care for the younger two for a night.

Given that this is such a public party - formal arrivals at the door - I am surprised as a family they would allow such a poor turn out. If for no other reason than it will get people like us talking about reasons why people didn't show.

I'm not aware of any tension between Benedikte and others but I bet the media will now have some stories

The Crown Princely couple look gorgeous!

Joachim and Marie's absence just reinforces my suspicions that there is something going on concerning Joachim and/or Marie. I never bought the whole French military training idea...the couple's absence from key events raises my suspicions even more.

Lovely photos in an elegant flat; however, is that a cat photo on the cushion cover on the sofa on the left side of one of the photographs?
