It remember me King Albert II asking before going to Denmark if the Elefant is to be seen front or back?

Probably that is newest highest Order. There where also several people with the icelandic sash.

Yes, the Court Marshal was wearing Iceland's Order of the Falcon.

Tomorrow forenoon there will be two New Year Courts.

The second of them, then one at 11.30 will be of interest to us, as it is well covered by the press.

At present I don't know whether it will be covered live by DR1.
So also keep an eye on Billed Bladet and BT they may have a camera there.
I don't know if I will be able to post links tomorrow.

Anyway, let's go through the court for the diplomatic corps for new members.

The diplomats will often wear their national attire. It's very rare they get the opportunity to do that in public in foreign countries.
The diplomats will stand along the walls and greet the DRF in alphabetical order.

QMII will give a short speech where she will welcome the diplomats and wish them a Happy New Year.
In return the doyen (the one who has been ambassador in DK the longest) will on behalf of the diplomats give a short speech, wishing the DRF and Denmark a Happy New Year and thank QMII for her hospitality.
The formalities over the diplomats will be served coffee, tea or something similar as well as a cake very much used at New Year (*) while the DRF mingle.
This is one of the extremely few occasions all diplomats are gathered together - also from countries that are officially not on speaking terms...

(*) The cake is a Kransekage = ring-cake https://www.femina.dk/sites/femina.d...-chokolade.jpg.

It's not to my taste, I'm not particularly fond of marzipan.
Or the more practical variation to coffee.

And the recipe in case anyone should wish to make one yourself.

I have to say - this year nobody really made my favorite appearance - all the ladies were some sort of OKish but not more..... I understood CP Mary's choice of the Edwardian tiara as the rubies would have clashed with the dress but..... Pr Marie's dress reminded me on some debutants here around and the Queen was splendid in her new favorite pink gown which is also not one of her best color matches.
Overall I am looking for some improvement next year?

I wonder if the Icelandic sash was awarded to the recipients who wore it tonight during Margrethe's state visit to the country a couple of weeks before Christmas?

Really? The ladies looked beautiful. The men like toy soldiers.

Hmm, it looks like booties of some sort.
I must confess I'm not familiar with the footwear worn with the gala uniforms.

Yes Mary wore the same lovely grey gown as last year. But guess what ! Frederik wore the same umiform as last year! And Her Majesty wore the same gown. So whats the point of mentioning it Daily Mail.
I love all these New Year Courts seeing everyone all dressed up and especially seeing some of the traditional dress by the Ambassadors.

Some info for our new members. Re: Diplomatic reception - you can always tell that it is held in the magnificent Christianborg reception room. Because of the very colourful Taperstries that line the walls. These were a gift to Her Majesty for her 50 th birthday from the Chamber of Commerce. Made at the famous Gobelin factory in Paris. Originally there were eleven taperstries, then another six were made. I think I have that right.
Dear Muhler or another Dk member will correct me if not.
Barack Obama and Michelle were quite impressed by them during a visit several years ago.
Her Majesty does encourage the Ambassadors to wear traditional dress to the event.
Sadly Australians don't have traditional dress and our representative turned up looking like an unholy mess. That was many years ago.

Do you mind if I go back to the first evening ie , the New Year banquet. It is held in one of the most beautiful rooms in Europe. The Jardin room. Please correct me if I get it wrong, as I am relying on memory from many years ago having read it on these forums.
I remember reading the banquet is held in candlelight. Or may be they have changed this.
The magnificence of the gold leaf here would be dreamy in candlelight.

If I say pretty please could someone please post a link of this gorgeous room. For the sake of our new members.

Your wish is my command, Tarlita

Yes, the Taffelsal = Dining Hall is only lit up with candles at this dinner.
It's fairly small, so the atmosphere must be very intimate.
I guess the chandeliers are lit otherwise.

These photos are taken in daylight and doesn't give the room enough credit.

But Riddersalen = the Knights Hall/Great Hall where the guests gather is beautiful as well:

Mang Tak. I knew I would get it mixed up its the Knights Hall I love.
Anyway I just feel with so many new members around a few more details added to the events would help them understand some of the subleties we have been taking for granted for so long. Ta.

I'm sure somewhere once the Danish Court gave us a video of the table being laid. I've looked for it but no luck so far.

Edit - think this is it?

It would be a dreamy experience dining by candlelight, gold braid and medals glittering in the soft dancing light. Jewels sparkling. Sigh.
Beats McDonalds anyday.
