More on the dresses, including the designer - who must be pretty delighted - this little mishap or whatever it was, has given her design more press than normal: https://www.bt.dk/royale/ups-kronpri...l-prisuddeling

I thought that kind of pattern went out of fashion in the mid 70's.
- To the delight BTW of many men back then, who did not appreciate the patterns so to speak camouflaging the female attributes. - True enough, you can't see what's up and down on Nina Wedellsborg and Mary.

You should know where the attributes are by now, even without seeing them.... Even in the 70s.
Men don't usually have big problems in finding them.

Great pattern, I think.

Weeell, back in the mid 70's quite a few men (and women!) were hardly aware of what species they belonged to.
But to be honest, I don't like that sort of pattern. Too confusing, too busy, not sexy, not feminine, no grace. So the sooner it goes out of date again, the better IMO.

It's great to get a man's point of view on fashion, it gives a different aspect . . . it also allows him to make an honest his opinion when he knows better than to be honest when his significant other asks "does this pattern make me flat chested". Ah to live life vicariously.

Here's an article about the dress incident

what a coincidence! out of all the dresses out there, it had to be the same one on the same night. i guess it provided a fun light hearted moment for everyone to chill and relax.

Crown Princess Mary attended a reception on the occasion of TUBA's 20th anniversary in Copenhagen today, November 3. TUBA stands for 'Therapy and Advice for Young Children of Alcohol Abusers'.

Today, Crown Princess Mary and the children attend the annual Hubertus Hunt

The weather is good.
I always look forward to the lovely and funny pictures of the CP-children to the Hunt.

Crown Prince Frederik can’t take with them this year as he has IOC-meeting starting in Switzerland today.

She'll have her hands full!

Frederik is at an IOC meeting, so he won't be there. But perhaps other members of the family - Athena - will be there?

First photos from the Hubertus Hunt (or rather Chase) from BB: Kronprinsesse Mary til Hubertusjagt med alle fire børn | BILLED-BLADET

The hunt this year was a little dramatic, as can be seen on this video of the reaction by Mary and the children. Mand redet ned af hest for øjnene af kongehuset under hubertusjagt - TV 2

An official was trying to get the spectators out of the way (or keep them back, whatever) when he found himself caught among the horses. He was ridden down and injured. Though not seriously injured he was taken to the hospital.

Thanks Roskilde & Iceflower.

I could not resist commenting on these pics:

Christian does not seem that appreciative of mother getting his hair under control - in public.
That's the wonderful thing about children, at some point they get old enough to feel really embarrassed by their parents. Payback for all the nights they've kept us up while wailing their heads off!

Looks like Josephine has a friend among the crowds. There are several pics of her waving in this way.

Wonder what happened here? Someone fell off the horse in the infamous pond?

[DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto
Horses in the distance... big deal! Where's the action?

And a more sobering and unfortunately common sight these years at major crowd events.

I understand the man was knocked out, but regained consciousness within moments. He was apparently hit in the chest by a horse and probably stomped upon. He has been undergoing checks at the hospital, just in case there are serious internal injuries.
So I guess he's pretty bruised and perhaps got a cracked rib or two and a concussion.
He was supposed to be there, being an official, but what on earth he was doing in the path of galloping horses I don't know.
But injuries do happen when there are large animals around.

ADDED:

Update on the condition of the man: https://www.bt.dk/danmark/voldsom-ul...-manden-det-nu
He was an official who for whatever reason found himself in the middle of the path of galloping riders. Horses, being smart, instinctively try to avoid riding into people. The rider in question was actually the winner of the hunt and she and her horse tried to veer off to one side to avoid riding the man down, unfortunately in an attempt to get away he stepped in the same direction.
He is left with a concussion, but otherwise fine.

ADDED AGAIN: Her ryger rytterne i vandet til Hubertusjagten - TV 2
One of the crowd pleasers are the riders riding through the infamous Magazine Pond. The really brazen riders ride through with one hand on the reins. But this year it seems quite a few fell off. - To the delight and applause by the crowd. (Safer to land in the water than on the ground at the other obstacles.)
Notice the official in the background stopping the oncoming riders, when someone falls off in the pond. - No wonder accidents happen!

That's awful news about the injured official. He was trying to move spectators out of the way of the approaching horses? Why were they all so close to start with?
In any event, I hope the poor guy's ok.

It's usually safe enough. That was actually after the race had finished. The riders were galloping towards the Hermitage Slot for the presenting of the prize.
But it has happened that people have brought along dogs and they run away, sometimes across the path of the riders. (That happens at cycling too!) Or some idiot decided to have a selfie...
Out on the range there is a considerable distance between the riders, who are going at full speed and the spectators and at the pond the speed is moderate, so there is little danger.

Riding is a dangerous sport. When you sit on top of one of the largest land-animals on the planet, accidents are bound to happen.

Always such a lovely event, that I'm sure the family enjoys. A nice traditional event that seems to be well attended. Love seeing the interactions between the siblings.

Love these ones of the kids and the winners and staff
