A gallery from BT: Se alle billederne: Her ankommer de royale til nytårstaffel | www.bt.dk

And congratulations on your first post, LibrarianDaisy

ADDED:

Let's have a closer look at the pics:
#6 - QMII in her court-dress, as former Master of Ceremonies, Christian Eugen Olsen put it. She is being recieved by the new Master of Ceremonies, in charge of his first New Year Court/levee.

#11 - The man is perhaps worth noting. Nikolai Wammen. Who may very well be the one who will have to rebuild the old Social Democrat Party, after their disastrous defeat at the next election in less than three years from now. I have never ever seen a government that eager not to be reelected as the current one....
#12 - The Chairman of the Parliament, Mogen Lykketoft.
#14 - Minister Morten Bødskov, one of the more capable ministers. I see his arms have grown out of his jacket.
#16 - The real and undisputed prime minister in Denmark, Margrethe Vestager.
#18 - Helle Thorning, The Prime Minister - but only in name.

Forgive my ignorance, but isn't the gold unusually yellow?

Not to my eyes, might be the lighting. Reminds me severely of the daisy's

My favourite event of the year!
I wish Mary had worn a new dress though, I'm starving for fashion!

I think it´s "yellow gold" and not white gold or red gold

BTW. the colour looks like the colour of our coins (which the tiara was made of), right?

A picture from Billed Bladet: Billed-Bladet - Elegant og glamourøs nytårskur
Of our Marie looking adoringly at her Joachim.

Perhaps you are right, Lumutqueen.

A nice gallery from Berlingske Tidende Dronningens nytårskur 2013 | www.b.dk

It certainly is a great way to kick off the New Year, with a gala banquet held in candlelight, and especially to see a new tiara on HM. I would love to see photos of the room where the gala is held - bathed in candlelight. It would be so romantic. Thanks to everyone for posting the lovely pics.

Always a great way to start off the New Year - with my favourite event.

I think Prince Henrik usually usually wears a uniform, maybe he is having a new one made. The ladies except for Marie have recyclyed even the Prime Minister and all look great.
Nice that see QM wearing the new tiara although not sure if I like it.

Thanks to all that have posted the pics and links.
Happy New Year to all.

I always look forward to the pictures from these Danish New Years events. They're always nice and glittering!

Queen Margrethe looks very regal, as always, although I don't think the tiara looks really well matched with everything else she's wearing. In and of itself it's stunning, though, and I don't remember seeing it before.

Mary looks beautiful and she really pulls off that orange dress. Orange isn't the easiest color to wear, IMO.

It looks like a lot of the invited guests pulled out all the stops as well; it's a very elegant looking group overall. It's nice to see people getting into the spirit of the occasion.

Thank you everyone who posted links to photos. With the time difference it is a lovely way to start the day. I appreciate your efforts.

The royal ladies all look beautiful. The New Year Courts/Levees are a lovely tradition. Marie is gorgeous and I think it is sensible that Mary and Dronning Margrethe reuse such beautiful but obviously expensive gowns.

Could anyone point me in the right direction (most likely not on the forums I am guessing!) to explain the political party set up in DK? I am very interested in how a Prime Minister's party can not really be the party with the power. I saw this on two different Danish drama series I watched and loved but was never fully explained.

Enjoy the rest of the New Years events.

That's correct.

QMII, Frederik and Joachim acknowledge the honor and respect shown them by the guard of honor.

Not sure where you can get such comprehensive info in English. Perhaps the English edition of Jyllands Posten?

Anyway, very short and simplified.
There are 179 seats in the Parliament, which means that for a government to have a majority and thus ensuring the policy can be carried through 90 seats are needed.
Before last election two parties, The Social Democrats and the Socialist People's Party, set out to form a left wing government coalition, should they win. They were supported by two more parties, the extreme left wing Enhedslisten (The Unity List) and the centre-right Radikale (The Radicals). These four parties just managed to get more than 90 seats. However The Unity List and the Radicals are predominantly political opposites. So in order to secure the loyalty of the Radicals, they were invited to join the government. But there was a price! The Radicals had a lot of demands - and they got them, practically every single one!
Result: The Radicals are in charge of the current government and the policy is radical, not left wing.
The current government has abandoned all essential promises made before the election and is now carrying out a policy that is de facto more right wing, than the previous right wing government.
As such those who voted for the socialist parties are hopping mad and feel the government has betrayed them. So the government is heading for disaster


I think you can read a little more about how the government was formed in the QMII thread about her political roles.

Something similar was also the case with the last government. It consisted of two right wing parties, Venstre (The Liberals) De Konservative (The Conservatives). Supported by the Danish People's Party, which is usually labelled an extreme right wing party, in reality they are right wing Social Democrats. The PM's were from the largest government party, The Liberals but the de facto deputy PM was undisputedly the leader of Danish People's Party. - They decided how long the government should live and everybody knew that. That balance of power lasted for ten years.

If it is 22K gold it will be that "gold". The higher the karat the more golden it will be.

I cannot help it, this simply has to emphasized.

Observe, admire and enjoy how Joachim, being a true gentleman, as always makes sure that our Marie stays on his right as befits someone as precious as his wife. They are as always the only ones who execute a proper 180 degree turn at the top of the stairs, so that Marie stays on the proper right side of her husband.
That is style!

The temperature must have been around 4 degrees C.
