Here is BB's coverage of the Grand New Year Court.

Not much new in the text. it has evolved into an occasion for young aspiring designers to present their works, because some of the politicians go to young designers, that includes Merete Riisager, who is Minister for Education. She and her predecessors usually have their dresses created by design-students. That is why I include the guests.

But see for yourselves here:
BB #01, 2018

And last week:
BB #52, 2017

Thanks so much for the scans, Muhler!

I was hoping to see a photo of princess Elisabeth at the new year's court, but there doesn't seem to be one in BB. Could it be she didn't attend this year?

She did attend, I understand. But due to her not walking very well anymore she used another entrance.

Thank you to those who shared the additional photos and videos.
Nice to see Elisabeth attended, I'm glad she went.
I just love all the photos of Frederik and Mary arriving. Mary always knows how to look like a fairytale princess at the NY Courts!

Right now a minor storm is passing DK.

I wonder if that will affect the court tonight.
As you know the guests and the DRF usually go through the front door in the facade of the mansion. But if it's too windy, and especially if it's rainy, I think there is a chance they will use the side entrance.
I.e. drive in through the gate and walk up the stairs there. Just as Elisabeth used to do.
Because umbrellas and a canopy will be of little use in stormy weather!

Didn't the guests enter through the side entrance until a few years ago.
But the Quen, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim usuallym inspect the Guard of Honour in the Entrance Hall so i guess even if they will enter through the side entrance the will go into the Entrance Hall.

Yes and no.

There is a logistical problem with a larger number of guests using the side entrance.
Unless they are dropped off outside the gate, and that sort of defeats the purpose of going inside when the weather is bad, there will soon be a congestion of cars trying to enter and leave through the same gate.
Even though many if not most of the guests tonight have an official car with a driver.
Hmm, unless the cars exist through the other side gate... I guess we'll see tonight.
And with a bit of luck Copenhagen won't be that affected by the wind.

Malmö, which is right across the water from Copenhagen, is in the middle of the worst gusts of wind at the moment. The bridge over Öresund (the water separating Denmark from Sweden) is in partial lock down until 18.00 when the storm is expected to have passed over the region.

Don't know how it is in Copenhagen and Malmö right now, but here in Jutland the wind has calmed down.

Anyway, in 2½ hours after this is posted the DRF will begin to arrive for the Grand New Year Court tonight.
DR1 will send live from 18.25, after the Prime Minister has delivered his New Year speech at 18.00.

You can already now test whether you are able to see anything outside DK by looking here: https://www.dr.dk/tv/live/dr1

If not keep an eye on BB's site, they are almost certainly also to send live, albeit only from one camera angle and most likely only from the outside.

Let's go through the show for newbies.
Tonight is for the absolute top of the state apparatus.
Government ministers (but not their spouses. The PM's wife will host an event for the spouses at the PM's official residence at Marienborg Manor.), the Chairman of the Parliament, Supreme Court President, the head of the police and so on.
The DRF will as usual arrive in reverse order of rank. Beginning with Benedikte if she attends, then Nikolai with J&M (if Nikolai attends. that'll be interesting.) followed by M&F and finally QMII.
Once inside those in uniform will take off their headgear at once. (Frederik is a navy man, and as we all know those from the navy are basically uncouth ruffians. Joachim is from the army, where things are done correctly, so he will naturally remove his headgear at once.)
Joachim and Frederik will in turn formally take charge of the guardsmen and guards hussars present and as such inspect the honor guard. That's why Mary and our Marie will stay back.
Having done that they will go upstairs.

Finally QMII will arrive. She too, as the formal commander in chief, will inspect the honor guard. You will notice that she will nod in front of the colour before inspecting the honor guard.

When the DRF are gathered upstairs, the guests will in turn greet the DRF before moving on to the taffel (Taffel = an elaborately laid table for a festive occasion.) Hence why this entire event is also referred to as a New Year Taffel here in DK.
At some point QMII will give a speech welcoming the guests and thanking them for their service. And here, the only time of the year, QMII will curtsy to the guests as a sign of her respect for the democracy.

These New Year Courts - should really be called New Year Courting in English.
The word is "kur" in Scandinavian and German.
And the custom in its present form goes back to at least the 1600s, (a source from the 1600s referred to this as "being an old custom") more likely to the beginning of the 1500s.
It was customary back then that you after New Year visited friends, benefactors, family, business associates, customers and so on to wish a Happy New Year and cement your liaisons as well as showing your respect.
The highest ranking and most important people were visited first.

So tonight the absolute top in the Danish state apparatus are going on "kur" to the DRF, to show their respect. And that is appreciated and acknowledged by QMII showing her respect for them in return.

What a pity that Princess Benedikte is not on the list for the New Year Court.

They will start at 18.25. That is in one hour ten minutes after this is posted.

If you have Apple TV, the DR network has an app on which you can watch all of this live on your television set rather than on the Internet via a desktop computer or laptop.
