I love the official group photograph with his parents, godparents and grandparents (and 'Big Henrik' and 'Little Henrik' sat together ).

I would prefer the celebration of this rite with other confirmants - boys and girls around his age (Like Marius Borg Hoiby had).

I agree, I would have left Marie, Martin & Hendrik jr. out for the official pictures that are posted on the DRF website. Imo it would look better than eg Marie looking like the fifth wheel.

Well, it won't happen!
It goes without saying that in Denmark confirmations are about confirming your baptism! But ...there's a strong secular side to the event which is about family gatherings, buffets and dinners, dancing, gifts for the confirmand - specially cash - and all sorts of surprises/showing off. !
It's a big event and there's far more to it than the church service!

Now suppose the RFs children joined an ordinary confirmation and had to squeeze themselves into the pews allotted ... all attention would focus on the RF rather than the confirmands!

Thank you to all who posted photos, I particularly like the official one of Alexandra, Nikolai and Joachim. Nikolai looked smart and little Henrik was adorable- especially in the video when it looked like he was holding Nikolai's hand but then went and held Joachim's instead (this can be seen at 0:40)! It was nice to see Prince Edward attending, I was hoping to see photos of Christian and Isabella; perhaps we will get some later on.

Noblesse & Royautes has a short article with a couple of photos of Nikolai's confirmation:

The official pictures are great. Very nice to see Edward there for his godson.

Nikolai was looking so dapper today, a very beautiful and sweet confirmand. It's so lovely that Edward and Sophie went (and so nice to hear that they're staying with Mary and Frederik). I absolutely love the picture of Nikolai and his parents. Personally, I would have split up the group photo in two, one of Nikolai, Alexandra, Joachim and the godparents; and one of Nikolai and his immediate family.

The same thought crossed my mind, too.

Far as I know of/can tell, Marie and Alex get along just fine, but this WAS Nikolai's confirmation, and Alex IS his mom, so maybe Marie was being respectful of that?

That's what I wondered.

Yep.

I agree.

I agree, and if she had held Little Henrik's hand, the space between Marie and the rest of the family would not be that empty.

I find the official picture actually more odd, with Marie and not Nikolai and his parents in the center of the group and picture. (Poor Marie, she is either too far away or too much in the middle!) But I guess she stood where she was told to stand.

I would have placed some of the godparents on the other side and then Marie could have been next to Frederik and behind her parents-in-law.

Finally a small image of Mary:

Delights with IMAGE-Blade this week

I wanted to see what she wore and I love the colour of the green dress.

Can't wait to see if they've got more pictures from the confirmation (or more of Edward and Sophie, I'm still absolutely over the moon that they came).

That's a photo from October last year, I think, Slovenian State Visit.

Someone on another forum said the one of her and Fred is from the party after the confirmation, taken at the same time as the other photos on the front cover. Of course I am sure in the actual magazine their is a photo of Mary.
