Actually, that's a common misconception. Women aren't really "eating" for 2 or 3, or however many babies they're having. Doctors say that pregnant women don't need to increase their caloric count by all that much when they're pregnant. Yes, they need to eat more to feed nutrients to the baby, but they don't need to double all their portions either. I'm sure Mary is eating healthy and taking her pre-natal vitamins and doing all the things she needs to be doing to have a healthy baby.

Perhaps she will do like her MIL and recycle those she already has. These new year's court dresses are not like the ordinary ball gowns - more austere somehow. Queen Margrethe has a least one, a fur-lined one, which she has recycled on and off for the past 20 years or there about

And here is the speech on Kongehuset, it's in Danish - maybe a DK member could translate the main points for us?

The Reigning Couple will hold the traditional Nytårskur regal gala this evening. The guestlist can be found here as well as the menu and music for the evening.

Guests will include TRH Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, HRH Prince Joachim (without Miss Marie Cavallier), HH Princess Elisabeth, Per Thornit and his wfe, Caroling Herring and her husband, the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, and a bunch of other very important people.

Here is an article from BT.dk regarding tonights gala event along with a lovely photo of the Queen and the Prince Consort. Also, first photo series from ANP, another photo series from Berlingske Tidende, and another article. Enjoy!

More information to come or if you have something to add regarding this evening please post it!

Later on, I'm sure, Dr.dk as well as TV2 will have something available for those of us who do not live in Denmark.

Finally, the Danish Royal Calender for January 2008 can be found here.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Fasan = pheasant
Lammekølle = Lamb
Kartofler = potatoes (I'm not sure what stegte means)

I like both Queen Margrethe and Princess Mary's outfits. HM's dress is of a very unusual color, it seems to be- but it looks really great! Mary looks very pretty, I like her dress and hair. The men don't really look particularly special- what's special about uniforms?

I've always loved that gown, first worn in March of 2004 during the Romanian State visit, on Mary.

More images from tonight can be found here. Just click the photo and it will lead you to a series of images. Enjoy!

DRWs is reporting, via their translators and sources, that the Queen's speech detailed the:

Quote:
..welcoming migrants into the Danish community and being more open minded about 'new Danes'... that Danes should have a warmer and more open attitude towards the country's migrants...
This is interesting that this was a highlight of her speech along with the effects of global warming/the environment, in which they paraphrased:

Quote:
...for greater care and thought for the environment, for nature and the legacy for future generations.
Finally, they note that the Queen:

Quote:
...expressed special thoughts and good wishes to Danes serving overseas, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq.
To read more click the link above. Or if you like to read the entire English version of the Queen's speech, via JP, please click here.

Just a few weeks ago I wondered why Mary never recycled this ebautiful purple gown.
I'm glad to see this dress again as it is one of my favourite Royal dresses!
I aslo like her hair: beautifully styled, but not too "high" or "big" (like in 2006 for example).
