BB managed to cover the first New Year Court before deadline this week.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #1, 2011.
Nytårskur uden Mary - New Year Court without Mary.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

As you probably noticed, Mary was not present at the New Year Courts this year. So Frederik had to go alone, wearing his navy gala uniform, his orders and the Order of the Elephant worn on a chain, the only time of year, this order in worn on a chain.
Unsurprisingly he nevertheless got a good deal of attention. He was in great mood and despite Mary not being there, he had to pose: "Do you want such a alone-picture of me"?

Prior to Frederik, Joachim arrived, in his infantry gala uniform, with la Marie by his side.
The fair Marie was wearing her wedding tiara and dressed in a gown by Rikke Gudnitz.

The Regent Couple was there too, you know. QMII wearing a gown of ziberline-silk, whatever that is, created by Birgitte Thaulow.
The less said about Prince Henrik and him advertizing for the ladies, the better....

I was disappointed that Marie wasn't wearing more impressive jewellry at the New Year Gala. I wish the Queen would give her a decent necklace as well as the family order which I thought she would have had by now.

Why should the Queen give her a necklace? Last time I checked, Marie had a husband

I think she means the monarchs portrait.I also find it strange that Princess Marie doen't have it yet. Princess Alexandra got hers for the Queens Silver Jubilee in January 1997 and Crown Princess Mary got hers also very early after the marriage (i believe about 1 year later).

From the danish BB "Billedbladet" article (paperedition) about the New Year "kur":

"Will you have such a sole picture of me? asked Crown Prince Frederik, whereupon he smiled on the red carpet in front of the enlightened Christian VII's Palace at Amalienborg, where the royal couple has New Year Levee and banquet for the government, court and official Denmark. The Crown Prince was in top form after a nice New Year's Eve with his little family, and although he obviously wanted to have Mary at his side, he was still more comfortable with her staying home and taking care of her pregnant belly, because now the twins are expected to the world every moment.
The first celebration in the royal family is something that all the invited look forward to, and as usual there were beautiful deck to the royal table in the Great Hall, where about 60 guests ..... took place after having wished the royal couple, Crown Prince, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie Happy New Year. Fred got a speciel warm handshake to Princess Mary and a desire for "everything good " for the impending birth. The menu was ..."

I mentioned the Queen giving her a necklace as I presume that she decides who gets what heirlooms to wear.

I don't think I have ever seen a borrowed necklace on either Mary or Alexandra, so I think it is highly unlikely that she will do it different with Marie

He also served in the Frogman Corps, which belongs to the navy.
On top of that he is pretty fond of the sea and sailing.

And as you point out, the navy uniform is the smartest looking. - It can certainly make some of you drool heavily.
I have a friend here in the US who was born and raised in Denmark (his family still live there) and he served with Frederick in the military. He told me that Frederick also came to the US to train with the Navy Seals. A daunting task to be sure. He made it clear that every medal Frederick wears, he earned by the sweat of his brow. He insisted on doing the same work that any regular soldier had to accomplish for those medals. So for anyone that might think that they are purely decoration or were given to him because of who he is, he got them the hard way.

That is 100 pct. true. The military education he obtained is the hardest you can get in Denmark.

On top of that CP Frederik has achieved an academic degree named cand scient pol.
His studies included a year at Harvard University. In 1995 Crown Prince Frederik obtained his MA degree in Political Science from University of Aarhus. He completed in the prescribed number of years with an exam result above average. His final paper was an analysis on the foreign policy of the Baltic States.

Frederik has also joined the expedition Sirius -a polar expedition.
