I dont remember seeing Mary's dresses except in ocassions like this, I think they are hard to wear, cause they are not per se a gala dress, but yet you can't wear them every day

I think she wore it for some form of state event.
I believe Mary has only worn this long coat/dress twice - to the 2006 and the 2009 galas. The brown dress underneath may have been worn at a wedding earlier on, but the coat only at the NYCs.

I have only seen her wear the brown dress underneath the 'carpet/curtain' overcoat on one other occasion, which was for a reception in Greenland. I can't find the pic, but she wore a fancy hair clip with that. And the blue dress underneath the blue overcoat might have been worn in Australia, I am not sure. But, so far as I can remember, I have never seen the overcoats and the dress worn this year for any other occasion besides the New Year's Court.

I think its good that she recycles the dresses for New Year's Court. The dresses/overcoat combo is appropriate for these formal royal courts. This event happens once a year, where she needs a fully covered formal/sober dress. I think its also good from a PR point of view during this time of recession, Danish people will only look at recycling outfits positively. IMO, it would look odd if she were to buy new dresses for every occasion (she wore a new dress recently for the New Year's Banquet) in this time of global recession.

CP Mary has worn the brown dress under this multi-colored long coat dress on 2 other occassions besides the New Year's Courts

In October 2003 while attending a wedding before her own official engagement to CP Frederik

Has Mary worn the gray lace dress without the bolero jacket? I think that would be cute at CPs Vicotria's wedding in June.

It is interesting that Queen Margrethe wears the same ensemble each year at this event, but I think it is simply an example of the ways in which the monarch can show continuity (It does rather remind me of when Queen Elizabeth attends the state opening of parliament here in Britain. On arrival, for years she wore the same long silvery/white coat over her dress until afew years ago when she started wearing a fur trimmed cape - whcih she has worn ever since!) This Danish event is quite a formal and significant one and the outfit does indeed show off the queen's decorations exceedingly well. A gala dress or ball gown (normally worn with a tiara) would not be appropriate for the occassion, and normal day wear would be too informal. Therefore, a formal outfit unlike any other the queen normally wears must have had to be designed especially for this once a year occassion.

Unknown at this point, as the only shot of what may be F&M is a poor-quality distance carriage shot. Although Henrik is wearing a cape

Gallery from yesterday's court from Billed Bladet.

Well well at Henrik in a cape.

That quote was placed at the end of the comment because it was in reference to Margrethe's dresses. Not Mary.

Mary has a new dress.

I was clearly wrong about Mary's dress. I thought she had worn the same outfit the last three years (2008, 2009, 2010). Maybe she'll start alternating the two dresses!

I think they (QM & PH) switched places at some point for some reason, because there are pictures of the line going left to right CPM, CPF, PH, QM. Odd, and going against protocol, that PH would go before QM at any point though.
