Correction: in SOME monarchies it is still the custom to curtsey. In others it no longer is expected.

Absolutely!
I bow my head because I want to, not because I have to.

Daily Mail this time with focus on Mary: Crown Princess stuns in a blue cape dress worn previously as she joins Mrs Macron on state outing | Daily Mail Online

No comments yet, they have otherwise been pretty harsh towards Madame Macron!

More than arsh they are frankly offensive.
As the the DM comments section is famous for its sexism, ageism, anti european feelings and good'ol French bashing Madame Macron, bless her, is the perfect target.

You were right, the origin of the tiara was bound to surface. But it is neither a re-work nor a vintage tiara, so we were both wrong on that. It actually is a brand new tiara, made exclusively for this State Visit be french jewelry firm Mauboussin.

It's a pity that it is only a loan, but at least we got to see Marie in a another tiara.

I´m sorry too - perhaps I´m oldfashioned, but I actually Do think a president´s wife IS inferior to a King or Queen! In the Vatican, after a pope´s funeral for instance, invited heads of state meeting the new Pope are seperated between crowned and elected ones. The monarchs are being greeted first, only after Royalty the republican heads of state are greeted by the Pope.

And no, curtseys should never disappear as they are one of the most elegant and chivalrous greeting gestures of a person meeting Royalty I could think of!

A couple of trivia based on an article in Billed Bladet #35, 2018.
Written by Henrik Salling.

This covers the first couple of hours of the visit and you can find the scans in Faereo thread.
In the scan where QMII is kissing Mary on the cheek there is a nasty bruise on her left forearm. Guess she fell or knocked it against something.

During the ceremony at Kastellet (The Citadel) Mary wore a brooch by Charlotte Lynggaard. It consists of leaves in 18 carats red and rose-gold, decorated with diamonds.
Her dress was by Raquel Diniz.

Here President Macron met the oldest surviving Dane from Normandy in 1944, 96 year old Evald Brinck.

Most of the conversation all through the forenoon was in French.

After being welcomed at Amalienborg, they all went inside the mansion where the Presidential couple slept the night they spend in DK and here the President signed his name on a pane of glass that will later be put in one of the windows at Fredensborg Palace, as is tradition.

I actually thought Mrs Macron’s wardrobe was much better than usual for this visit. Her red, orange and white daytime outfits were great and her evening gown, while not to my taste, was not bad. Her hair and makeup were also quite good, imo.

Well, one present that was presented was a Tour de France shirt for the PM. It is seen as an almost sure sign that Tour de France 2020 will start in DK.
The PM was over the moon!

And the very sports interested CP-family is with guarantee pleased as well.

And congratulations on your first 2.000 posts, Princess Larisa.

It's good to see that CP Mary is very much part of the state visit and is being groomed to be queen.

Trivia based on articles in Billed Bladet #36, 2018.
Written by Trine Larsen.

This weeks issue. The details about our Marie's new tiara have been posted in the jewellery sub-forum.
https://app.box.com/s/5yltreyf6eoofuasm5p98jqhhgn8kymc

At the gala QMII wore a dress by Birgitte Thaulow, her hair was done by Poul Nejlund. She wore the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor.
Madame Macron wore a dress by Louis Vuitton.
M&F both wore the French Grand Cross. She wore a dress by Lasse Spangenberg and it was Lasse Spangenberg who had added the balck fabric t her dress, that acted as a minor train.
Mary and Madame Macron have met previously and also had lunch together at the Elysee Palais in connection with an OECD meeting some time ago.
Marie wore a dress by Rikke Gudnitz while Benedikte wore a dress by Wichmann Couture.

The Presidential Couple wrote their names on a pane of glass that will be inserted in one of the windows at Fredensborg Palace.

The visit lasted altogether 29 hours, so it was a very tight schedule which may explain that when it was time for the return dinner there were no one to receive Benedikte when she according to protocol was the first of the DRF members to arrive.
The Presidential Couple was indeed a few minutes late and when they came, the quickly entered a side entrance so that they could greet Benedikte properly at the entrance. - Just in time to also greet Joachim and Marie who were arriving that moment.
Inside President Macron gave a speech, where he mentioned the popular French ambassador, Francoise Zimeray, who was relieved here on the 1. September. That led to everyone in the room to stand up and give a visibly moved ambassador a standing ovation lasting several minutes. - Whereupon the President continued his speech.
Marie was seen having a longer chat with first Madame Macron and later President Macron.

According to the Danish Royal Court, Madame macron received the Grand Cross of the Order of Dannebrog. It seems like she just didn't fancy wearing it to the gala dinner.
