The others with direct access to the curb are born royal.
Generally the highest ranking passenger in the car exits first.

Did Mary and Marie receive new necklaces. I never see them before.
Prince Henrik senior without uniform ?

I have been wondering about it for years, and find it quite rude actually for Fred not acting gentlemanly, although there may be a problem, he might have a secret phobia of having an accident we never know, most likely it is some protocol about him being the next king

I think it's interesting (and nice) that both Mary and Marie had their hair fashioned into braids this year.

I don't care for the color orange on Mary at all, but I did like the style of dress with what looks like an overskirt and softer underskirt gathered in front.

Kudos to those of you who understand all of the decorations. I recognize the Order of the Elephant but that's about it!

I didn't know there were rules about who gets direct access to the curb and who doesn't? Kind of a weird one imo....

As was indicated in past posts, CP Frederik is not being rude. Both the regent couple and crown prince couple exit their cars according to protocol. The highest ranking royal exits the car nearest the curb. It is Princess Joachim and Princess Marie who ignore protocol.

Princess Mary is wearing the pendant from the brooch of the Ruby Parue set as a necklace.
Princess Marie is wearing a diamond and sapphire brooch as a necklace which was once Queen Alexandrines.

You are quite right it is.

I quite like the design of Mary's gown, however, what I don't like is the shiny fabric over the skirt. The orange color is already overwhelming and thus adding another shiny fabric would be too much. I imagine I would like it better if the shiny fabric was removed and Mary wore a different tiara. The ruby parure is very elegant but considering the whole impact of the dress and its color, something less shiny on Mary's head would have been better IMO. I notice she wears the ruby parure in every bold color of her gowns.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie only attend the New Year's gala.
The New Yea's Court at Christiansborg is only attended by the Royal and the Crown Princely couple.
Prince Joachim never attended.

I'm confused then, isn't this event the new year's court? :S or what is the event that Joahim and Marie don't attend to?

Check out this link to last year's receptions at Danish Royal Watchers blog. It explains the different events better than I could.

Danish Royal Watchers: January 2009

The receptions that Joachim & Marie don't attend appear to be daytime receptions for the Supreme Court, a couple of officers' corps, and diplomatic corps. Last year they were held on January 5th.

This was the New Years Court Banquet held at Christiansborg.
The other event on January 5th is when the royals recieve the Supreme Court, the Royal Lifeguards Officer Corps and Guard Hussar Regiment's Officer Corps in Christian VII Palace at Amalienborg.

They also attend the New Year's Court for the Diplomatic Corps serving in Denmark at Christiansborg Palace later the same day.

Quote:
January 5
HM Queen Margrethe, TRH Prince Henrik, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attend the New Year's Court for the Judges of the Supreme Court, the Royal Lifeguards and the Hussar Guard Regiment officers at Christian VII's Palace in Amalienborg at 9:50am. The New Year's Court for the Diplomatic Corps follows at 11am.

January 6
HM Queen Margrethe, TRH Prince Henrik, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attend the New Year's Court for the Armed Forces and Emergency Management Agencies Officers, 1st-3rd Class Rankings and representatives of Royal Patronages and National Organisations at Christian VII's Palace in Amalienborg at 9:30am.
This is the first time Mary will attend the 3rd New Years event.


Marie and Joachim don't go because they don't need to go.

The tiara is not hers, it's a loan from the family.
The Ruby Parue belongs to Frederik, it was given to him by his grandmother for his future wife to wear.

I wonder where they get dress in their own home? or may be in the palace and after they come around in the car? I am sure they need several people to get them ready like that it is not only the makeuop and hair it is to set all this jewellery on the dress too

The family were at Marselisborg for Christmas, and possible New Year. So I imagine they dressed and were "made-up" there.
