I didn't think that they looked surprised as to hearing the Queen talk about their trip next year. I'm sure they heard about it beforehand

Mary's tiara. The new pearls are they the row of pearls along the the bridge, I believe it's called? Or are they the ones set on a kind of spike? Are these "spikes" new also?

FasterB. I noticed Mary, when QMII mentioned thay are going to Korea next year. All her antennaes were out! - Or she was suprised too, as you suggest.
Only the pearls are a new addition to the tiara Muhler. It looks great I think

Would have looked better if the base was better placed amongst the hair and not ontop. Other than that what a great surprise.

I wonder if the pearls are a recent present? Possibly for the birth of Josephine and Vincent?

Of course they knew beforehand, but I still think they looked surprised

I don't know if you'll be able to watch this. It's from DR1's website. If you can, then go to 24mins, that's when the DRF enter

The additional pearls to Mary's tiara was a wise choice, they match her earrings perfectly. I loved her overall look.
Marie should try wearing color rather than sticking to whites for evening looks.

Great a trip for the CP couple next year, im looking forward to that.

Someone PM'ed me about the woman standing behind the Korean first lady and as others may have had the same thought I'll answer it here.

The Korean looking woman in the red uniform does not belong to the Korean delegation, she is employed by the DRF and her title is "livrist" = a personal servant. The man in the dark uniform standing behind QMII, is a "jæger" = hunter. Which is also a personal attendant, just higer ranking than a livrist.
Back to the lady in red. She is an adoptee from Korea and have a typical Danish name, Mette (Can't remember her last name).
She is by the way this first female livrist employed by the DRF. She must now have been employed for several years as I've seen her many times.

Oh, if you thought they were rocking while standing there behind the Regent Couple/Presidential couple, you are right. An old trick familiar to all soldiers, they do that to avoid fainting.
I mention that because surprisingly many are not familiar with that trick.

(Hope that answered your question).

Muhler, can you tell me what kind of uniform the lady on the right is wearing?
https://picasaweb.google.com/billedb...39253327104562

And do you know since when Chris Minh Doky is a Ridder af Dannebrogordenen? (I think it is what he is wearing?)
https://picasaweb.google.com/billedb...39317268004146

Who is he again?

#1. I can tell you what it isn't. It's not a police nor a military uniform. I don't think she belongs to Etaterne = the uniformed branches of the civillian world. (The military is not an Etat, but the police is). She is pretty highly decorated, so I wonder if she is the Danish ambassador to Korea and this is the female version of an "ambassadors uniform". I need her name in order to figure that out.

#2. I don't know. But if we check Ordenskapitlet's website we may figure it out. - That will have to wait a bit though.

#3: That I can answer. That's Per Stig Møller, a former and very competent Minister of Foreign Affairs. He is now Minister of Culture, if I remember correctly. His wife is of Chinese origin. He is Conservative.

The bandeau you talk about, is that the brooch from Russia? I ask because I have no idea what a bandeau is.
I copied all screen shots into a word document because it is faster. When I turned the pic of Mary into a jpg, I somehow stupidly closed the word doc and ! That happens when you are in a hurry. I just wanted to be the first to post a pic of the new tiara version. Well, it was worthwhile. This morning I found out that my screen shot made it to various forums and blogs.

"Bandeau" is usually used for tiaras that look a bit like a straight band in the hair. It doesn't stand up and doesn't have a peak in the middle like the typical tiaras have. Don't worry, the turquoise bandeau is the only bandeau the DRF has, so that is easy. BTW this piece of jewellery has a daisy motive and Princess Margaret of Connaught received it as a wedding present from her parents. It than came to Danmark with Queen Ingrid.

Isn´t she the one and only female "jæger" or is it "kammerherrinde". Oh, there is something about her, which is unsual...

Thanks for the date, FasterB

Hehe, you have an incredible knowledge about the DRF and I always enjoy your posts. But you don't seem to know much about their jewellery. But as a guy you are heartily forgiven

Thank you, Marika86

Observe and enjoy in the first two pics how Frederik leads Mary in by the correct right arm, as is proper when leading someone as precious as your wife.

Notice how Joachim, being a resourceful gentleman, has improvised a solution to the akward problem of his Marie having to find her seat to her left.
Letting go of your wife, only to have her walking past you in front of you, is hardly graceful. No!
So what does a gentleman do in that situation? Lead his lady in by his, albeit improper, left arm, so that they can split unhindered and gracefully. Stylish!
That's neat improvisation there, Joachim.

A pity that his wife didn't appreciate it and didn't want to leave his side to find her place
