Our Prime Minister looked lovely tonight, I do wish that she would start wearing more red though

Mary looked stunning, though I'd wished for a new gown. Oh well, there are two more days and one can always hope.

Thank you Muhler for that comprehensive explanation. I will read the references you gave. My "other half" who doesn't usually read the forum enjoyed that post!

Yes, welcome LibrarianDaisy!

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.
Mange Tak Muhler, as always, for pointing out this important item of male etiquette to us clueless females! It is so important to know what to expect of our husbands, so that you are quite correct in spotlighting the supermanly qualities of what I will now call 'our Joachim'! Elsewhere on this board there is a priceless photograph of la Marie looking up at her very tall (those Lifeguard? caps have a purpose!) husband that echoes your reminder of the superior etiquette of our Joachim

I'm so pleased you appreciate, Gerry
In fact I had to remove a little one from the corner of my eye, when reading your post.
Rest assured that I'd be more than delighted to point out the other gentlemanly quailities we can expect...nay, take for granted by Joachim.

Joachim's cap is actually not from the Royal Lifeguard but based on the standard infantry officers (dress and full dress) kepi from mid 1800's.

------
Now hit me, FasterB et al, I know you want to
But you cannot deny these two truths: The sun rise in the east and Joachim is the perfect gentleman.

My pleasure, Lady Rosie.

Just wanted to Thank everyone for all the great links. Today's not been a good day for me and an ongoing medical issue. I've spent the better part of today curled upon bed either sleeping or in pain waiting on pain meds to kick in.

So knowing I had the coverage of the first of New Year's Courts to look at, gave me something to look forward to. Thank you all for the badly needed diversion.

All the Royal Ladies looked stunning today. I'm still not sold on the Greenland tiara, but it is a statement piece.

Thanks again Everyone!!

Hope you will be feeling as new again soon and spend the rest of 2013 in good health. Like you I enjoy the anticipation of seeing the royal courts in the New Year. It is something we wake up to here in Australia and lifts our spirits to see all the glamour and smiling faces. Especially these days when tv news stories are mostly grim. So thank you Denmark for putting on a good show for the rest of us to enjoy.
I don't mind the new tiara I think it will grow on me as I see more of it.

When the temps start to average 0c, 4c isn't that cold for a short period of time.

Its not as if Mary had to walk so far from the car to the palace entrance. I am sure she withstood the 4C temps for those few moments without any lasting damage. After living in Denmark for the last 9 years she should be used to winter temps.

I don't know I suppose it depends of each indicidual, I had been working in ice rinks all my life and I garantie you everytime I had to perform with sllevless costumes in the opening number I was always shevering, so cold, I never get use to it1 of course after perfomring 5 minutes program you are warm, but in Mary's case she is not dancing to get warm, I still think too cold for my taste with sleevles dress! I imagine inside the palace is very warm! but what a marvellousway to start the year!!!! and I imagine Isabella looking at her mother looking so beautiful!!!!!!

Does anyone know why Mary stands and watches Frederik walk past the guards and Marie walks just behind Joachim when he inspects? Prince Henrik walks just behind the Queen as well.

In the pics that are posted on the royal website, it shows that Prince Henrik walked to the side as Mary did and not behind the Queen.

I agree, Mary looked stunning last night and the red rubin set suits her so well in her dark hair.

But yes, I would have loved a new dress too, and so on the other hand, I think it's great that she recycles as much as she does. And the same with Queen Margrethe.

Can you post the picture please because I dont see a picture of Mary walking behind Frederik. The only picture I get from the guard inspection is this where she watches.

I think marfre maybe means this picture:
http://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...g-taffel-7.img

It shows that Prince Henrik walked to the side exactly like Mary did

Sorry, I must not have been clear in my post, Mary stood to the side as did Prince Henrik. Marie walked behind.
The one of Prince Henrik and the Queen on the royal website shows Prince Henrik walking to take his position on the side to watch. Sorry I don't know how to post the link.

Thanks Roskilde
That is the pic that I was referring to.

Well, if we are to be pedantic, Mary is correct.

The honour guard is to be inspected by the general only, not the general's wife.
You see the same thing when recieving a foreign head of state at the airport.
QMII escorts the head of state to the honour guard, so that he/she can acknowledge the curtesy.
Both PH and the wife/husband of the head of state stay behind.

Mary has indeed previously inspected an honour guard herself, but that was when she was alone and the highest ranking around. (Like the time she named a Navy Home Guard vessel).

The only one who always escorts a royal/commanding officer who is inspecting an honour guard is the adjutant. Last night it was the head of QMII's staff of adjutants, who escorted QMII, Frederik and Joachim.

I agree that she should be wearing more red Oh, and perhaps without the ribbons/decorations on the dress that could look like a golden chain from the Elephantorder

I will only agree with you that the sun rises in the east

We are to be pedantic and of course CPss Mary is correct. She knows her place and can walk by herself.
Pss Marie obviously doesn´t know her place and can´t walk anywhere alone, when her husband is in sight
