Well it's certainly interesting to see Daniel at an official overseas royal function. Maybe, just maybe, an engagement is on the horizon. On the fashion front, I thought everyone looked quite good. Mary's outfit was fun and funky. Victoria seemed to strike the perfect balance between casual and formal. And Mette-Marit's dress was simple and cute. The only person who I thought looked bad was the Duchess of Calabria. I have to agree with the sentiment that she looks rather "fake." It's fun to see the royals get together in sort of a semiformal environment. Great clothes without the formality!

You can really imagine how they would let their hair down and have fun, just like anyone else. Its fun to see them dress up and all for Frederick too.

The colors Mary wore complimented her skins tone. Some of the pictures looked to delight. It's good to see Fred shower everyone with his festival. It is also nice to see Victoria playful with Daniel. Sometimes pictures is all we got to be a part of gatherings and get-togethers and to feel invited along with their majesties. It's fun to see. Reading here warms my heart. The Royals and us fans make it nice to come here. It's eye catching to find out what the descendants of previous world leaders now do. Sometimes I can't believe having this vantage point. It's nice. Good luck to them. And Happy 40th birthday Fred. It's a milestone.

Daniel WAS the man of the hour - a soft introduction into the royal mainstream -
Camilla of Calabria is not seen often, but when she is phtographed she always looks the same ---- very Hollywood. She may have a very sweet personality and be a lovely person, but ....
And Mary --- she has looked flawless lately - does she have a personal stylist? She looks amazing --- even in the rain on the balcony - a simple daytime outfit and she was impeccable.

You are correct that Daniel was a main attraction--and I doubt that CPF or Mary cared. They don't look the type to be upset by that sort of thing -- after all they knew he was coming! Victoria and Daniel knew before hand what a statement this "date" would make.

More information about the bash on Saturday. Oh and "Mr. Man of the Hour" is mentioned... naturally.

Hmm, what else. Oh yeah... Frederik (Remember him? He's the guy with whom this topic is actually about and the guy with whom many friends of his came to Fredensborg, from near and far, to celebrate and honor his birthday. Oh and he's the guy who will one day be the King of Denmark... just in case you forgot) is also discussed, but in passing.

Quote:
Although, Swedish Crown Princess Victoria has not yet officially engaged with Daniel Westling, they are beginning to show themselves publicly more and more. The couple were also among many guests where Crown Prince Frederik, on Saturday evening, held his 40th birthday with a big celebration on Orangeriet at Fredensborg Palace. It was a private party, and therefore Victoria was able to take Daniel (Mr. Man of the Hour.)

Also in the company of guests were the Norwegian crown prince couple, Mette-Marit and Haakon; along with them came Victoria and Daniel from the palace to the restaurant in the park.

Crown Prince Frederik had invited 165 guests to his birthday, but even he knew little about what should happen.

-- It has been my sweet wife stood for, he said. And Crown Princess Mary promised that she had some surprises in the sleeve during evening.

Forty and Sensible

Frederik did not not hide the fact that he welcomed his party/40th age, and on the question it feels to be middle aged and 40, he replied:

-- It is actually very sensible.

Most of the guests were Frederik and Mary's friends, including actor Preben Kristensen and his man, Crown Princess Mary's hairdresser Soren Hedegaard and Ellen Hillingsøe and Hella Joof.

In addition to the Norwegian couple and Swedish Crown Princess with Daniel, also attendence was the Belgian Crown Prince Philippe and several of Frederik's cousins. Not there for obvious reasons: Prince Joachim and Princess Marie. They are on honeymoon.

Nice weather they had on the last bash. Carina is the most natrually beautiful one there, I can understand her boyfriend's love with her, she seems to have a sweet personality. Mary has the most stylish and "in" look, yes she seems flawless as of late.

I am just on could nine. Who expected Victoria to bring Daniel around? On a Royal Event!

Imo the Princesses and those who are supposed to be Princesses one day looked great.

I really wish the ladies had all worn long dresses ... but, then again, that would have been a repeat of the Dannebrog event. Why exactly where there two different parties?

Anyway ...

CP Mary ... LOVED the dress! Great color on her; very chic
CP Mette Marit ... what to do with this girl? The color was way to pale on her; her hair was a disaster; the dress was quite ordinary ... not exactly what you would expect from someone who has access to every major designer in the world1
CP Victoria ... finally, we see Daniel at an "official" event outside of Sweden. He's O.K. but I'm not "gaga" over him ... then, again, only she has to be I liked her dress but thought it made her look a bit "big" all over. She looks better in color.

Amber Petty: AWOL?

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik: AWOL?

Princess Alexandra of S-W-B: God, what was she wearing?
Tatiana Blahnik: GORGEOUS!
Prince Nikolos: that boy is just tooooo yummmmy!!!!!

I think it was rather nice of the Birthday Boy to share the spotlight with Daniel. Frederik had to know that speculation regarding Victoria and Daniel would overshadow the fact that it was a celebration of his 40th birthday, as well it did. It was nice to see the young royals get together in honor of the milestone birthday, though I have to agree with Fred, turning 40 is really no big deal!

Do you think that the attendance of Daniel Westling was a mistake? If Daniel was invited to come?

I am pretty sure it wasn't a mistake and he was invited ...
as other Royals also brought their partners (e.g. Carina Axelsson or Nikolaus's girlfriend ).

Wow looking at all the photos I have to say Frederik really doesn't look like he is celebrating his 40th Birthday.

It was nice to see Victoria with her boyfriend and not attending alone as usual.

On the other hand, he has celebrated it already with a big gala party past week as well as a private family party, so I don't think it was all that much of a big problem that Daniel's present overshadowed the birthday boy
Love the pictures, so nice that Victoria could finally bring Daniel with her somewhere! I'm starting to hear wedding bells..
