The Queen, of course, looks stunning. Her gown is regal and as always, she radiates both warmth and dignity.

The men were all swoon-worthy, even the portly ones. Some of the ladies looked like they were wearing sacks, which is a shame since I'm sure that wasn't the "look" that they were going for.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #02, 2011.
Besøg fra hele verden - Visit from the whole world.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

One of the New Year Courts is for foreign diplomats in Denmark. Who on this occasion get to meet eachother, often dressed up in their national costumes, and also get to meet the current Danish Monarch and the successor. That's basically the whole point of this court, which is also a foreign political statement.

68 ambassadors and 36 charge d'affairs were present and along with spouses that amounted to a total 124 persons.

As always the diplomats lined up along the walls of the Knights Hall at Christiansborg according to seniority.
And as always the doyen of the diplomatic corps gave a speech on behalf of all the diplomats. That was this year the Mexican ambassador. Marthe Elena Barcena Coqui.
QMII returns the gesture by saying a few words of thanks in return.
Then all diplomats walk up and shake hands with the DRF, after which there is a reception.

(Sorry JessRulz, I know you went to a lot of work with your post BUT you wrote '2011' (3 times) instead of 2012 which I think it should be?)

It's their first birthday, they won't even know what's going on I don't if Jess has altered the post, but where are the 2011 bits?

Princess Mary in a gown this year will be my highlight. Isn't however Princess Marie due in January? I'm surprised she's attending.

Thanks for that Anna - I had copied the info from the post I did last year for the 2011 Court, changing the dates, but forgetting to change the year The dates are now correct for 2012 - we don't really want to go back a year (although the reception cards for my deb ball in 2008 had the previous year's date on them...).

Lumutqueen, Princess Marie is due around January, but she is nonetheless listed on the press release. If my memory serves me correctly, Princess Mary was also initially listed on the press release for this year's Court, but didn't end up attending (understandably). So, I wouldn't be surprised if Marie's attendance is changed/cancelled a few days beforehand.

Billed-Bladet - Prinsesse Marie kommer ikke til nytårstaffel

Billed Bladet informs us that our Marie will not attend the New Year Court on the 1st. January.

Hardly surprising considering her circumstances.
The big question now is whether she will have been giving birth before or after QMII's jubilee. I doubt we'll see her there as well.
My guess is that the next time we'll see our Marie at an official event will be at QMII's birthday in mid April, probably with a baby in her arms.
- And with the twins presumably being able to walk by then, it'll sure be crowded balcony!

At least Mary is hardly likely to miss more New Year Courts from being pregnant. Surely four is enough....

So are there any photos of the NYE gala, 2012, namely Mary's gown...or am I too early with the time difference and all

And yes, I sort of believe they could have one more child, Mary will be 40 soon and she could get pregnant this year and have another baby by the end of the year? Who knows?

For some reason I have always though the New Years Gala was a NYE event, as in the 31st December for them to have a formal seeing in of the year...but I guess they would have a private NYE with family and friends, a sleep in, breakfast at lunch time, heaps of beroccas and start the costume drama to be ready for 7pm
