Thank you, Dazzling :flowers:

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.

Sweet picture :)

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?

They all seem very close as far as Royalty is concerned.

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 :flowers:

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.
