So that we all still know what we are talking about.
Splendid idea

Levee is the term used in Canada. Nova Scotia held a New Year's Eve Levee. Maybe its an English or French word.

Can you watch anything?

The coverage has started.

What is happening now is warm up and first guests arriving.
At 18.30 there will be a brief news break, lasting until 18.38.
At 18.50 The DRF is expected to arrive. (They'll probably be a bit late as the politicians can never figure out to move their behinds away from the cameras quick enough).

The PM will give her New Year speech at 19.15, so by then the coverage will end. Period! (I won't watch the speech - bad for my bloodpressure....).

Marie is in a new pink dress

Mary in the same orange dress she has used before

The Queen in her blue dress from last year 40-jubilee

Was she wearing the tiara from Greenland?

Yes, she wore the orange dress in 2010; three years ago.

Levee is English and means a reception. It comes from the french word lever which means to rise in the morning. A levee is a morning reception at court upon the king's rising from bed. Usually after a king rose there was the first levee - the first morning reception - for the nobility. It is a historical word as you can see.

On a side note: I love Mary in the orange dress.

I like that the Danish Royals kick off the new year in style and in regalia.

This is my very first post so please be gentle with me. Really excited to see the Queen wearing the new Greenland tiara. I am such a fan of your Queen after seeing her BBC interview in praise of our Queen last January. I then watchd the CNN interview and was completely hooked. She came over as an intelligent, lovely and genuine person. I'm trying to save my pennies so I can come over for her birthday celebrations (but it may be 2014 rather than 2013 - Denmark is very expensive!)

I think it's the best way to bring in the new year. You can't beat starting the year off in style, regalia and an elegant dinner with distinguished guest.

Welcome! I agree, she seems like a very down to earth and warm person.

I was in Copenhagen for HM birthday celebrations last April. Was such a good time - great atmosphere at Amalienborg and lovely, friendly Danes to chat with while waiting for the DRF to appear on the balcony :) I hope to go again this year!!

The Danish New Years Courts are the first tiara-alert in the world.

Wonderful look the Danish Royal M-Club!

Thanks for the welcome - and I think I'm going to have make a visit to Amalienborg my new year resolution. I love the fact that these events are broadcast live (and I can see it in the UK!).
