Minister Sofie Løhde's dress certainly looked pretty enough for a princess!

(So strange to see politicians dressing up in gala for a dinner with the royal family - but I'm loving the show! :-))

I always look forward to the New Year Courts, I love seeing all the DRF in their finery. Would have been nice to see Nikolai there considering that he's eighteen now, perhaps next time.

I love these events, the tiaras, the gowns, uniforms. I think they all look magnificent! I do like the Queen in her green and especially Mary's gorgeous red.

I never thought I would say this - but I like Pr. Maries dress more than I do CP Mary's.

What is the history behind Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim wearing these particular uniforms every time? I'm sure I've read it somewhere but can't remember it.

Could they wear something else? I've never been too fond of either of these uniforms.

It is not every time: both princes have been promoted to higher ranks and that is why their uniforms are far more elaborate, especially the headgear. In the recent past we could see Prince Joachim with a képie, now he clearly wears the hat of a senior officer: a feathered bicorne. Prince Frederik always wore an unfeathered bicorne but since his promotion to the highest ranks he wears an abundantly feathered one. In most European armies these bicornes were scrapped after WWI but they still feature in ceremonial tenues.

The dress code is gala, which means you are supposed to wear a gala uniform if you are entitled to one.
Joachim is a full colonel of the reserves in the army, so that's the uniform he wears.
Frederik is entitled to wear the gala uniform of all three branches. But since Joachim is already wearing the army uniform and Frederik has a close affiliation with the navy, he seemingly opts for the navy uniform.
He could also wear the air force uniform, which PH has been seen wearing quite often, but to be honest I don't think our resident fans of Frederik would appreciate that...

Of course I assume Frederik and/or Joachim could wear civilian if they really wanted to, but it would be odd and probably considered a snub of the armed services.

The Home Guard and the Civil Defense don't have gala uniforms. The Home Guard because they are basically a citizens militia and the Civil Defense because it goes against the non-militaristic basis of the service.
So Mary and our Marie can (fortunately) safely go for the big gowns.

A nice gallery from Svensk Damtidning:

The photo of M&F looking at each other is great.
So is this photo!
By accident this is the best photo of them all: https://www.svenskdam.se/wp-content/...y-stella-1.jpg

And an article about our Marie's dress:
