Yes, that's correct! :) the Queen also has a red brocade cape/dress and a yellow one. she wore them on two photoshoots. Can't recall her wearing them to events.

The red brocade from a photoshoot in 1997 (with Crown Prince Frederik):

The yellow brocade (don't know the year....maybe also 1997 and the same photoshoot as with the red one?):

The photoshoots are my absolute favorite of Her Majesty ever. She looks so regal, powerful and beautiful in them.

They yellow broicade dress was worn for years at the the New Years receptions undtil she started to wear the blue one in 1997.
The red one which has a fur trummed Jacket/Coat was worn the first time for the Wedding of Joachim and Alexandra in 1995 and then several times to other white tie Evetns without the jacket.

Only that in Sweden all royal ladies who where present whore the Court Dress and in the UK they are wearing different white gowns. I think it would not so much noticed if Crown Princess Mary would follow the Queen in wearing the same gown every year for both of the New Years Courts.

I think that as a "uniform" it not only suits the Queen but it's a powerful image too. I love that Her Majesty has put so much thought into this.

All three Court dresses are really beautiful and I will be intrigued to see what Queen Margrethe chooses if she replaces the blue one!

I would love it if she gave the blue one a rest and wore the red one on the first day and the yellow one on the second day. Or repeating any other dress she has on the second day at least.

I do however like the idea of a uniform. I’d love it if queens regnant wore military uniforms to these events actually. It was fabulous when Queen Elizabeth was younger and wore a uniform for Trooping.

Thank you for finding these gowns........I remembered them yet could not find them on the internet..............I have to say that the red gown with the fur trim is my all time favorite gown of Queen Daisy, that fabric is beyond stunning, it is gorgeous and I so wish I could get my hands on about 10 yards of it. I have looked to fabric like that for decades now and can't find it...........now that I have pictures of it hopefully I can find it somewhere. She looks marvelous and even to this day as she gets older, she gets more beautiful then ever......she to me is one very amazing lady! I am of the group also that wants that blue gown retired for the red one to be seen again.....

Do you think that Queen Margrethe sews any of her own clothing?
She and her sister, Benedikte, look as if their dresses are handmade - by a personal dressmaker or even themselves, I wonder?

No I do no think that Queen Margrethe sits down and personally sews any of her own clothing yet being an artist she has learned to pay attention to the details of all things related so that would include clothing. I am sure that she and her sister have personal seamstress who make most of the clothing that they wear. That to me would be a dream job in making clothes for her. Being someone who sews and knows something about fabric I can pick up on cheap fabric just by the touch of it, and I look at the construction of clothing when I go in dept stores to see how they made or not, mostly they are poorly made. To me it is all in the tiny details that make a piece of clothing worth something. The red and gold silk brocade fabric is rich beyond belief, just looking at that picture of her in that gown showed me what gorgeous fabric it was. All this comes from generations of sewers in my family and lots of time in design schools to help me learn about sewing and fabrics.
