its funny seeing Joachim moving around Marie so much, one side and then around, and then to the other side again.

This picture, I like it, very regal both Mary and handsome Frederik

Another member pointed this out in the fashion thread, but is Marie not wearing the Family Order? ( the portrait of the Queen? sorry if thats not what its called)

are they not suppose to? i see Mary wearing it

It seems that Marie forgot hers this year. She did wear it last year: http://joachimetmarie.j.o.pic.center...lants-2013.jpg

The royal ladies don't always wear their Royal Family Orders. It's like you are free to choose to wear it or not when it's required to be worn.

Princess Elisabeth dit not attend probably because of Health Issues as she has said in an Interview. Princess Benedikte never attends at last i can not remember, perhaps she used to attend earlier.

Many thanks Stefan,its quite rare that we get to see Princess Elisabeth,though I think she hasn't attended the last few New Years Courts due to ill health .(Pity)

The menu for the annual New Year Court:

- Pheasant Consommé
- Ballotine shellfish, lobster bisque and salad dressing
- Roast venison, green beans and potatoes
- Chocolate cake and custard
- A selection of wines (including Castle Cayx 1989 and Rogomme Cayx 2012)

Happy New Year, All, and especially Muhler. :) Each year, I look forward to seeing what beautiful clothes will be there and what will Queen Margrethe wear. I remember her wearing this green dress to Crown Princess Victoria's wedding. She had to move her dress in order to make room for the King to sit down and at one point during the ceremony the dress was over his lap. Which made me laugh. She has so much savoir faire/panache/style? I admire her so much and I think this dress looks great on her. I believe I remember reading that she styled it herself? Does it anyone else remember that?

I thought there was an event right after this one during the day. It seems the Queen and PC and then Fred and Mary attend.

I didn't know they could pick and choose either but after I've seen old pictures of the British royal ladies over the years, they've too decided when or not to wear their Royal Family Orders on occasions where it would usually be required for them to wear it. Some decide to wear it and some decide not to.

Princess Elisabeth certainly did not attend as her sister-in-law Countess Anne-Dorte passed away.

Happy New Year to you too MissByrd. - Hope you'll find the name of the church.

The Countess passed away on the 2nd. The first New Year Court took place of the 1st. IIRC Princess Elisabeth had some problems with her foot and she told Billedbladet a couple of weeks ago that she had been invited, but was not sure that she would be able to attend.

She attended in either 2013 or 2012 don't remember exact which year. But there have been bod pics of her from that year which sometimes was not the case.

But the question is: What is the custom in the DRF?
There would have been lots of frowning, if Mary hadn't worn hers...

The dress was made by Birgit Hallstein, and while the basic design is sketched by the designer, it's being closely monitored by HM; she may suggest a few changes/corrections/improvements. At least that's the impression you get after reading a fairly recent book on the Queen's dresses.
Did you know that HM's gala dresses are designed so that HM 'step into' them? Pulling a dress over your head is a no go with upswept hairstyles and tiaras!
Stylewise the green dress is one of her best in recent years. The colour however ........ nah.....!

Mary, he seemed warmer then I anticipated because normally he

Hi Rebafan,
While not an expert I happen to know that Danish naval officers
never wear caps indoors and thus never salute indoors!
In this case CP Frederik was wearing the naval gala dress with a
'sauce boat' hat, and I don't know whether the same tradition - not saluting - applies when in a 'ceremonial mode' as the gala dress would normally call for! The gala uniform is only worn by the very top brass!
IIRC we may have seen a navy styled Prince Consort wearing his 'sauce'boat' indoors, but having honorary - 'a la suite' ranks in all three services he may confuse the various traditions from time to other .

Last but not least in Denmark the Navy enjoys taking the mickey out
of the Army and their far more formal ceremonial and rigid traditions!
Now you could argue that an occasion like a New Year's gala is not the time and place to do so, but I for one wouldn't be surprised if it were the case ..

True, the navy is known to be more informal than the other two branches.
However, in the army, you normally never wear your headgear either, except when on specific duty, and as such you normally don't salute indoor either. You only stand to attention. (You can sit to attention in the navy).

Typical navy though... They got the finest dress uniforms but they can't tell the difference from a spoon and a fork...
No, proper ceremonial ought to be left where it belongs: in the competent care of the army.

As for PH, you are probably right. He was originally an army man, intelligence NCO to be exact. And how things are done in the French army, I have no idea.

ADDED conclusion: So I guess it's a matter of taste: Frederik's navy approach or the proper, stylish army approach performed so well by Joachim as can be expected by an officer and gentleman.
