Yes can't wait. Is this the second official visit (not birthday event) the couple attend in Belgium?

Thank you, Dazzling

The man standing next to Mary is the Minister for Europe, Nikolai Wammen.
- He may be worth keeping an eye on. As future PM in Denmark or a high ranking position within the EU.

I don't think it is boring so much...It looks like the dress requirement, Mathilde is wearing something similar, in terms of length, fabric, but Mary just chose to wear a frock-coat over her dress which might be more suited to a daytime event and not a evening concert?

I love that picture of Mathilde and Mary hugging. They must be really good friends, also since Mathilde is Isabella's godmother. This is so sudden, I didn't have the slightest idea that they were going down there.

It was already announced several weeks ago on the websites of both couples. If you didn't knew it must be a very nice suprise

I would've thought that Mary would be in a more cocktail outfit for this event but nevertheless she looked great minus the hair. Mathilde looked ok. In some pictures which was quite sweet, Mary & Mathilde had a good giggle laugh.
Thank you for all the pictures & videos.
