Usually the spouses of Presidents get the second highest danish order the order of the Dannebrog. But it seems Madame Macron not. Or she choose not to use it.

Madame Mitterrand got the Dannebrog.

Fairly certain it's the National Order of Merit

how fun that mme macron and mary both wore the same shade of red.

shame about this not having happened before henrik passed away. i am sure he would have enjoyed welcoming the french couple. i wonder how much english mme macron speaks? i wonder if margrethe/frederik/joachim spoke in french with them. at least they had marie to bear the french flag at the event and make the couple feel right at home! :)

did mary have her gala dress altered? would it possibly be because of the fact that orders cannot be worn on bare arms?

Nice to see a French President in white tie again ,I'm sure Princess Marie's tiara is going down well on the jewelry threads.

Daily Mail about the gala: Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and Brigitte Macron BOTH opt for red | Daily Mail Online

In 25 minutes DR1 will send a summary of the speeches, greetings and procession.

From what I could follow along in the articles live blog, they seem to be nice speeches, highlighting Henrik and the special relationship.

Mary was seated next to President Macron: https://jyllands-posten.dk/indland/E...e-af-hinanden/

According to DR1, this is President Macron's first state visit to a monarchy.

DR1 are now sending the evening news, when that's over by 21.55 there will be a 35 minutes summary of the gala: https://www.dr.dk/tv/live/dr1

Mr Muhler , What do you think about Mr Macron 's white tie ?
To me too large and he is not used to wear Sashes.

It is wonderful to see Princess Marie in a new diamond tiara with a blue central stone. Give it a few days and someone will surely find out where it came from. It is a substantial piece as well. Very happy for her.
First Lady Macron lovely in a white gown, but I really wish she would drop her hemlines down to cover the knees, as per the red outfit.

The DR1 coverage is back.

See link below.

--------------

Well, I haven't really looked that much at him, I must admit.
I wore his suit correct I think, perhaps a tad too long in the coat tails and it doesn't help that he has a tendency to slouch, so that detracts centimeters from his height.
He did okay.

Oddly enough none of the Danish media have mentioned our Marie's tiara. Is it really new?

The entry procession with QMII and the Presidential Couple showed a little detail as to why a royal spouse is important.
It's difficult for three persons to walk through a door at the same time...

I'm a little surprised she's giving the whole speech in French but it does make sense.
The speech is after all directed at the foreign guests, not the Danish guests and when she does speak fluent french, why speak Danish or English?

How is QMII's French BTW?

Either it'as a brand new tiara Marie sported tonight, or she had her floral tiara modified

They could also let the spouse of the President enter with the Crown Prince instead. Don't think we know how that was don in the NL under Queen Beatrix as we never get pics/Videos of them entering the Banquet Hall.

It's definitely not a rework of the floral tiara. The elements in this one look completely different. And I don't think that it's 'brand' new, but it looks like an antique piece with about a hundred years of history behind it. I'm also convinced that it's nothing from the 'vault'. The Danes don't have so many tiaras that they would have spare ones lying around for many decades. And I can't remember seeing any historic photo of a Danish royal wearing anything like this. So my best guess is that Marie and/or Joachim bought a vintage tiara, be it in a private sale or at auction. I suspect that some tiara-watchers will soon find out a bit more about it. For now, we can just enjoy that Marie finally has a second tiara that is not a loaner from a jeweller.

Btw, the pearl tiara was in an exhibition and Amalienborg Museum had announced beforehand that it would be taken out for the State Visit. So it was obvious that the Queen had planned to wear it.

And isn't this the first time that Mary wears the rubies for a State Visit from a Republic?

So according to some sources, the Elysée palace specifically asked for a scalled down welcome ceremony (aka no carriage procession etc) to avoid any "monarchical" images of the President (criticized at home for his "jupiterian" view of the presidential role).

Any video of the speeches ?

You could be right,- in a close up several of the floral elements closely resemble her original tiara. Perhaps she had it redesigned. I do like the look of this one very much.

Ahh, that's a slight exaggeration IMO.

If you look at Daily Mail, it's hardly our Marie's tiara they are writing about. And the comments (after going through the nutcase and ignorant-filers) don't seem to dwell on the tiara either.

It has been noted that President Macron and Prime Minister Lars Lřkke are on informal you with each other. Just as Lars Lřkke addresed the President with Emmanuel.

Any comments from our French members?
