I love the Danish New Year Courts! They all look superb!

QMII curtseying to Denmark is a great tradition, and has such deep meaning. I truky hope this tradition continues with Frederik and Christian.

As for the banana, and as CP Mary would know, bananas are low GI, meaning they keep you feeling satiated, and will give you energy over a longer period of time. They are a great source of fibre and aren't known to bloat. Lots of athletes will snack on bananas during their matches/meets because of banana's great nutritional properties.

As an Aussie, like vegemite, they are a staple in most households and one of the first solid foods given to babies. Bananas are particularly delicious with peanut butter 😉

What about the 'one chair' on one side of the table. While he/she is seated close to two others; it does look a little weird to have only one chair on a long end of a table.

It's not often we see the New Year Court for the officers of the guards regiments at Amalienborg, that takes place before the court for the diplomatic corps at Christiansborg.

Now, I can sense some of you asking: Why are the soldiers bowing, rather than saluting?
You don't salute when you don't wear a headgear. And you don't wear a headgear inside when you are not on watch - I.e. guard duty or something similar. (As a rough thumb-rule: You wear a headgear inside when you are under arms. Otherwise you remove your headgear the moment you step inside.)
So you stand to attention instead - and in the case of the DRF you bow. And this being the army, they all bow to a similar angle.
(Leave it to the army to do things the proper way! Heaven only knows what navy officers would do in a similar situation! Probably rest on their hairy knuckles...
The fly-boys from the airforce would be too busy admiring themselves in the mirrors to even notice the DRF! )

Mary looks every inch a queen today!

A BB video from the diplomatic court:
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...frederiks-side

As always nice to see the many national costumes many of the diplomats wear.
The diplomats line up along the walls in alphabetic orders of their countries.
The doyen of the diplomatic corps give a short speech on behalf of the entire corps wishing QMII and the royal family a Happy New Year.
QMII give a little speech tanking the diplomats for their well wishes and wishing a Happy New Year in return.
Then the diplomats will personally greet the DRF in alphabetical order.

The whole thing ends with a little reception, where the diplomats are served refreshments, coffee and pastry.

Crown Prince Frederic, Prince Joachim, and the royal regiments always look better than the royal women.

I just loved Pr. Benediktes outfit:
https://members2.boardhost.com/royal...577909729.html

Purple velvet and a diamond and pearl tiara - it can't get any better!

What is it with her that she always seems to be the most stylish woman besides CP Mary (and sometimes she gets my no. 1...)

Why on earth were Joachim and Marie wearing their stars of the French Order of Legion on Wednesday?

Because they live in France these days, would be my guess. And Joachim is attending a French academy.

The Queen today in a very big fur coat. But probabbly because of the carriage ride. Don't think there is heating in the carriage.
