Today Wednesday it's time for the New Year Court for the Diplomatic Corps.

I expect someone else will dig out pics and clips, so perhaps we should go through what happens for new members.

This court will take place at Christiansborg.

Here the DRF will take up position near the end of a hall, with the diplomats lining the walls.
QMII will welcome the diplomats and wish them a Happy New Year as head of state, but also as head of the family.
The doyen(ne) of the diplomatic corps will give a short speech expressing the best wishes for Denmark and the Danes and also wish the royal family a Happy New Year.
Then each diplomat (in alphabetical order IIRC) will greet the DRF, before going into an adjacent hall for a refreshments and a chat with the other diplomats. (This is after all one of the very few occasions where they are all together at the same time in one room).
The DRF will then join the diplomats for coffee, pastry, wine and what else is served while they mingle.

It's usually a colorful event, since many diplomats were their national costume. Also one of the few occasions they do that.

For our American members: The new US ambassador will likely be well featured since the role of the US ambassador has been much more public here in DK over the past 15 years.
She's brand new to the job however and this will be her first New Year Court.
The popular French ambassador is also likely to be well featured on photos.

------------------

Thanks, Iceflower.

What would we do without Daily Mail to keep us abreast of the events?

The three gowns are gorgeous and quite festively stunning together.
I love Margrethe's tiara. Everyone looks happy.

Everyone at the first New Year's Court looked regal and festive. However (this is not going to be a popular opinion) Frederik needs to get rid of the beard. It's making him look old and haggard. He also needs to find a new tailor, because those pants are just too long and baggy, IMO.

I have just seen the video of the Diplomatic Reception on Facebook. QM is seated, as usual - can't blame her, I would too! Mary is wearing a pretty purple dress. In the comments section, there are comments which make me think that the new US ambassador is not as popular as the last one. I know it took a long time for that particular post to be filled.

Unpopular or not, I agree.

I like Frederik with a beard but it needs to be more trimmed then it was at the new years court, and I also noticed first thing that his pants are too long and therefore baggy and unfitting. Hope they get tailored before he whips them out next time

Thanks, Iceflower.

That's why I get up in the morning, to eagerly read Daily Mail's coverage.
Sometimes I play: Spot as many correct facts as possible in the text.

A video from Billed Bladet:
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...christiansborg
One guardsman fainted.

Agree with Midwestmom and Zembra, stubbles gotta go. One hair at a time with a tweezer if need be.

Seems like we have a growing movement for force-shaving Frederik - without shaving foam. That'll teach him.

This clip from DR1 is mainly for our US friends: https://www.dr.dk/nyheder/indland/us...d-falde-til#!/
It focus on the new US ambassador in DK, Carla Sands.
She has a serious task ahead of her!

The former ambassador, Rufus Gifford, was very good at PR, and as such popular, especially among high schoolers and the inner city segments. He was gay and got married in DK (which really shouldn't mean anything nowadays but it still does) and he had all the political correct opinions and he attended all the right cultural events.
He also had two seasons on TV about what goes on behind the scenes as an ambassador - including a lot about himself and his husband.
The cynic within me can't help admiring him. That's the way to do it, if you want to endear yourself to people and those who matters, should you ever become ambassador.
On top of that he represented president Obama, who had and still has a high star here in DK. All across the political spectrum actually, even among the extreme left. Which is interesting since president Obama's policy in Danish context would have made him a comfortable liberal (to the right of the political center).
It's no secret that President Trump, with the exception of a couple of parties, has a considerable lower standing here in DK.

So the poor Carla Sands can only go up from here...

- I mention all this because Carla Sands is destined to be mentioned again here in the DRF threads while she is serving as ambassador to DK.

I liked the arrival of Prince Joachim and Princess Marie. I also got my question answered: Both Joachim and Frederik wore white gloves with their uniforms.
