I have the feeling it might have been wishthinking from your colleagues.
I don´t know, I haven´t talked with them today

Now, I am for one very excited for this banquet tonight! Any more details that we are yet to hear about it? I want to see some bling and sashes with the magnificent backdrop of a regal palace!

I really hope so too! I'm not sure about the dinner etiquette in Denmark with the black tie = tiara question, do you reckon we may see some orders and sashes tonight?

Not that I wouldnt want to see it but I really dont see it happen. Camilla has only worn a tiara abroad once (at a top class event with HM present) and she seems to avoid it where she can, possibly for image reasons.
Ehh wishful thinking I suppose? We can always dream!

Given that another 2 British soldiers have just been killed in Afghanistan, I'm sure Charles and Camilla would prefer that today's remaining engagements are pretty low key.

I have just heard from the organ player and only Charles and Camilla, a lot of securitypeople, courtpeople and photographers were present
But beforehand they were told that the CPC would be present also.

I won't be surprised if we won't see tiaras tonight, so far we didn't during this tour and Camilla is not very 'tiaras lover'. But I can also imagine tiaras cause Danish Royal Family like such a events.

That ice cream cone looks so delicious. I really like that the Prince & Duchess frequently visit local businesses and show such such support for entrepreneurs.

I always love seeing royals do things like eat ice cream, something I consider myself quite good at......About the tiara question.....maybe, maybe not but a nice necklace and brooch wouldn't hurt anyone right?

Thanks, Marika86

The coverage om DR1 has started. It's not a continous coverage.
There will be live footage inside Amalienborg a little later.

There are three guests in the studio, who will comment on the dinner. One of them, a British ex-pat told that she had met C&C at the British embassy. She didn't say when that took place. My guess is last night.

Another guest explained how this visit to Scandinavia is linked to QEII's jubilee: Instead of having a lot of visitors dropping by in UK in order to congratulate QEII, C&C have been dispatched so that the DRF, SRF and NRF can congratulate QEII through them. And that this should be seen as a gesture towards the Scandinavian RF's, as C&C (she said) donøt go on that many official visits. - That is a downright odd explanation in my eyes! It would be equivalent to you and your husband inviting yourselves to visit some of the neighbours of your parents, so that the neighbours can congratulate your parents on their anniversary.... Nah, don't think so! I believe the tree story is much more correct.

Lovely articles, thank you Marika.
Interesting to read the (overwhelmingly positive) comments as well.

Prince Charles and Camilla took a tour of the Kronborg Castle and the old town.
They visited a local theatre group that is named Prince Hamlet; Shakespeare's famous play was apparently set in Kronborg Castle.

- Charles and Camilla (love this picture)
- Camilla is presented with some flowers
- Charles and Camilla are welcomed to the castle
- Charles and Camilla with Prince Hamlet theatre group members
- Gallery from Daylife

Prince Charles also visited the Danish Rud Rasmussen Furniture Workshop during a guided tour by Marlene la Cour Rasmussen, the great grandchild of the founder Rudolf Rasmussen. While there, he talked to some of the craftsmen.
- Prince Charles

I don't think that it's possible outside Denmark. DR1 coverages this event.

The coverage continues and in a few moments we will see the guest greeting the DRF and C&C.

The coverage has so far been focusing on Prince Charles, with a balanced and fair portrait of him. Not least his interest in ecology.

Among the guests invited are Sofie Gråbøl, the main actor from the seris The Killing, which some of our UK readers may be familiar with. The Duchess is apparantly an enthusiastic follower of this series and she and Mary will visit the studio where the third series is being filmed right now. However Sofie Gråbøl cannot reveal who the murderor will be in the third season. - She doesn't know.

There was an interesting comparison between Frederik and Charles in their capacities as heirs. Apart from the age cap their roles is very different indeed agreed the royal experts.
Prince Charles have more than 400 protections, most of them charities. That is not so much the tradition here in DK. - The state takes care of that.
But in contrast to the BRF, the DRF, not least Frederik, is used extensively as door openers for Danish commerce. Working very closely with Danish trade delegations at official visits.
Another contrast which was pointed out is that M&F are extremely popular here in DK, and while QMII is immensely respected, a large segement of the Danes would M&F to take over, tomorrow or earlier if possible.
While in Britain a large segment of the Britons are not that eager for C&C to take over.

Alas, no tiaras as far as as I can tell. Medium size bling bling, but no tiaras.

C&C visited a shop in Copenhagen, where they produce handmade furnitures and Prince Charles was presented with a chair. And he had seen the whole process from start to finish.

The greeting has started. Camilla is wearing a medium blue dress. Mary is wearing a deep lilac dress and our Marie a royal blue dress. (I hope the fashionistas will treat me with kindness. That's my best shot at dresses. I can't help it, it's my chromosomes).

Thank you so much for the picture, Nico!
I absolutely love Camilla's gown; it's easily one of my favourites of the Duchess, as is the wonderful necklace.
Queen Margrethe looks lovely but I wouldn't say I'm particularly fond of her ensemble; all the black lace just doesn't appeal to me.

Such a shame this is another non-tiara event though, I had high hopes for Denmark.

Camilla does look great, is that the same necklace that the Countess of Wessex wore to the Swedish royal wedding? Very sad that its a no tiara affair, the distinct lack of bling has been the only negative on this trip!
