I wonder if Fred and Joachim made a bet to see how long it would take before their mother nodded off. Naughty, naughty!

I know, these are not the best of economic times, but it can't be that bad! Only Henrik seems to be himself, with his usual "apres moi la dluge" look.

The correct version is "aprs moi le dluge".

At least she managed to keep her eyes open. I would have fallen into a heavy sleep :rolleyes:

Nobody has died yet - which is a miracle - but often some MP's are taking a nap during the speech. It happens every year.

Thanks for sharing such great photo, UserDane!:flowers:
Well, Princes seemed to have great time while waiting for a boring event to be over. It is nice to see them to have warm relationships.

The Queen alwayes arrives last. The others arrives in accordance with the succesion to the throne. Princess Benedicte first, then Prince Joachim and wife and then The CP Couple.

...and then, if you have an hour or more of random still shots of persons sitting through a session of this nature, it isn't difficult to pick some where the object looks bored/uninterested/silly or what have you :smile:

This photo is hilarious! They all have very funny looks on their faces.:lol:

I think Mary is trying to hard, and Marie looks perfect! If Marie had showed up to this event less stylish, she would be branded that for awhile in the papers. But she didn't; she got it right. {Deleted conjectures}

There are plenty earlier in the thread ashelen, and the Queen's back is in the front of this picture posted by HM a couple of posts ago:https://www.gala.de/asset/Image/bilde...k-071008_g.jpg :flowers:

Thank you so much darling! you are an star!

Watching the video of the royal family's arrival I think who ever was filming it must have forgotten that tha queen was due as you don't see her car arrive, she just appears at the foot of the steps.
Is there a procession from the palace to parliament? and why don't they use carriages instead of cars? People would get a better view if they did that.

Exactly my feelings: the in your-face colours of Marys hat and dress are calling out loud: look at me!( yes I know she wore that ensembe before ). I am very surprised about Marie : she seems to be very relaxed about being compared to Mary. She dressed very low key, not interested at all in stealing her sister-in-laws show. What a cool girl.

UserDane 10-09-2008 06:47 AM

Thank you for all the nice pictures Paty :flowers: I can't get enough of that coat of Mary's - and I love it that she has the good sense of reusing it so many times. Very prudent, very well suited to the occasion - and spot-on.
Marie is adorable too - not quite as well put together clothes-wise as Mary but they seem to get along really well and I have every hope that Mary's good sense of dressing herself and her extraordinary sense of occasion will be transformed to Marie as well in a short while ;)

Oh, I love Fred's look! He doesn't look like a popstar to me. I think he looks like every other 40-year old Scandinavian man in the middle of his career. He has a young but sombre and serious look. Joachim on the other hand looks as if he inherited his suits from his father. You would want the king to be a man of his time...

Maybe Mary didnt dress low key because she is the future Queen? Marie is not, she has to dress according to her status, which is lower than Mary. Marie is the second wife of the second son of the Queen. It is only appropriate that Marie dresses lower key than Mary.

How can you tell she is not interested in stealing Mary's show? I'm a little puzzled.

Santacruz 10-09-2008 08:51 AM

To dress according to her status? Ahem, this is the 21st century, there definetely is room to decide how to dress, even for princesses...

Australian 10-09-2008 09:29 AM

Yes, this is the 21st century, and we still have royals! And we also know there is protocol linked with royalty regarding status. So i still stand by my opinion.
Also, you didnt answer my question, which was how can you tell Marie is not interested in stealing Mary's limelight.
