Just watched live coverage from the dinner in the TV2 news tonight.
The DRF would have posted group pictures from the dinner tonight.
But due to the terror attack in London today they have chosen not to take the group pictures.

That mean - I think - that we won't get any pictures from the dinner.
Except for the ministers arriving.

Do we know long after the past dinners that the engagement and PM departure were announced?

That government is a political crisis in itself

I think the State Council Dinner in 2003 was on the day of the engagement,
8th October.

So in summary, this State Council meeting was much ado about nothing...

I am so sorry that because of the terrorist attack in London that the group photos were not taken and released publicly. I wonder if photos being released was a signal of a new openness by the Danish court or in reaction to the media speculation?

The State council was held as usual on the 15th of March. Yesterday was only a dinner with the members of the State council & Crown Princess Mary.

We got one large group picture from the dinner.
The DRF have just published this picture on their Facebook:

Looks like Mary is wearing her dress from the Arts and Culture evening. At least we got one photo.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #13, 2017.
Written by Trine Larsen.

It's been eight years since the last State Council dinner, and only the third since 2000.
The aim is to have a dinner for each government, but reshuffles and timetables often make things difficult... Anyway, now was the time. So 22 government ministers were invited. Without spouses, because formally this is only for members of the State Council and the Crown Prince as the heir, who also has a permanent seat in the Council.

However, Mary was also present. - But of course as the host QMII can bend the rules as she wants. (And personally I doubt anyone minded, because Mary has a good reputation among the politicians and she has worked closely with several of those present).
A number of the senior officials of the court were also present (they also work closely with government ministers, that's part of their job) and QMII's Ladies in Waiting. (Perhaps to fill vacant seats at the table methinks).

It was expected that something dramatic was to be announced but nothing happened.

The PM, Lars Løkke expressed his sympathy for the victims of the terror attack in London

Mary wore a dress by Temperley London.

You can see the scans in the Belgian state visit thread.

H.M. Queen and H.K.H. Prince Henrik celebrated their coming gold wedding ceremony with the family at Fredensborg Castle.

In the private part of Slotshaven the Queen and Prince revealed the statue "Miss Fredensborg", which is the couple's common gift to each other. The statue is designed by Prince Henrik.

Thanks, Eya.

Well, I don't know what it is, but it's... interesting...

I see Athena and Josephine are very close. No doubt causing a lot of mischief.

As you can tell the weather is great these days. Just the right temperature for staying outdoors and do something all day.

Frederik is going to be Regent for the next few days, so perhaps QMII & PH will go on a little golden-honeymoon?

"After the unveiling of the sculpture "Miss Fredensborg", the family was gathered in the private part of Slotshaven."

Christian has some sort of bandage on his leg

We can see young Henrik and Vincent are near the same height

Thanks

I heard Mary in the video. After the unveiling she was standing behind Isabella and said: "Yes, it's going to stay here from now on".
And "In 1968", perhaps explaining when their dad was born.

Well, that was a surprise! I think it's great the family shared this with us, even if I'm not sure quite what to make of the sculpture, (and I think I saw some of the younger members of the DRF looking similarly befuddled).

The best part of the video was the spontaneous affection between Henrik and Margrethe. I admit that I was confused by Henrik's semi exit from public life and one of the things that ran through my mind as a cause was trouble in the marriage, so it's very nice to see them looking so genuinely happy.

Aww...this was just lovely😍😍
It was very nice that they decided to include all the family and share this with the public.

For a court that is big on pomp and splendor, it is refreshing to see such a modest family gathering.

It was great to see the family at the event. I love seeing little Josephine and Athena's relationship, it's cute that they're close to each other. Isabella looks so grown up, I didn't notice she was there at first!

A nice surprise to come home to. I also now subscribed to the DRF's channel on YouTube, so I can see the videos.

It looks like the family also enjoyed a boat ride before or after the sculpture unveiling. Short video of the family getting off the boat
