This change seems to have occurred this year, of the Queen arriving last. I only started following the Danish Parliament opening when Princess Mary was around and in all these years (2004-2007), QMII and Prince Henrik arrived first followed by the Crown Prince Couple then Prince Joachim then Princess Benedikte.

In 2006, when Princess Mary wore that white coat dress, there is a video where you see QMII and Prince Henrik are waiting by the steps and Princess Mary with Prince Frederik goes up the steps. Princess Mary curtseys to QMII. Joachim arrives after. The link to the video is in the bottom of this link, click JP video

For 2004, you can see the arrival sequence with the photos posted on the 1st page of this thread.

I do, too! Except Marie is shorter but they can pass off as sisters.

The whole event looks terribly boring to me, IMO!

I'm going to keep an eye on this link because I think that madeliene normally is far more balanced in the pictures she takes - there are a lot of pictures of mary alone here, so mayeb this is only the first batch

No, at least not one in which it is tradition to have people assembleling along the roads to wave and salute the royals. But I guess, if one wants to do so, it would be possible figure out where to go and at which time.

As I said it is not a tradition to have people assembleling along the roads to wave and salute the royals at this occasion. It isn't the royals who is in focus - but the parliament.

Thank you for the reply Lilla. It's a pity there's no procession, people like a good show.

We will have to wait for a procession until the "Nytårskur" at the very beginning of january. At this event it is a tradition for The Queen and The Prince Consort to ride in a golden carriage - drawn by a span of six horses - from Amalienborg palace to Christiansborg castle. The carriage is followed by the mounted Gardehusarer Regiment as well.

Princess Benedikte is in dark colours, wearing a cape/poncho.
Princess Marie in a green dress and jacket, with a small beret-type hat.
Princess Mary in black, with a grey hat.

I'll make some screencaps.

dazzling 10-06-2009 05:48 AM

Fred & Mary just arrived. Mary in a new hat and a black coat.
I quite liked Marie's green coat and hair-do, looks very neat.

JessRulz 10-06-2009 05:49 AM

Two screencaps can be found here:
ImageShack - + One of the Queen

marymaxima 10-06-2009 05:53 AM

marie likes carrie bradshaw

dazzling 10-06-2009 05:58 AM

I wonder why the ladies are dressed in dark colors.
I didnt know that Mary & Marie had to curtsey to P.Henrik, also didnt know that they kissed the royals then curtsey, thought it was the other way round.

JessRulz 10-06-2009 06:02 AM

Several screencaps from inside the parliament:

https://img28.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=67371647.png - Everyone appears rather bored, as usual. Politicians inclusive.

Yes dazz, both Mary and Marie have to curtsey to Prince Henrik - he ranks above them as spouse to the reigning monarch.

dazzling 10-06-2009 06:33 AM

Here are two videos of arriving and the other inside the parliment.

Thanks Jess for the info.
