Well, finally here are some of the men on this vacation! Maybe the ladies had a few days to themselves before the men came.
According to reports Prince Nikolaos did not accompany his parents to Gråsten palace
- but his younger brother Prince Philippos (17) did :)
 
I do think, that Mary's outfit seems quite traditional. Not the wardrobe she ususally wears, when she is "of duty".....

She still looks nice, but I agree. :flower:
 
what i understand there is yearly photos from this stairs am i right
 
Some pictures from Colourpress ...

(I must admit, I still find it shocking to see a monarch smoking so openly ... must be the prudish Canadian coming out in me :rolleyes: )

I don't like that she's smoking in public either! All public figures, and most of all those who are members of a Royal Family - and most certainly the Monarch - should present themselves with good judgement in public. They are role models and should set a high standard for the public. Daisy usually knows this, so this was a slip I would say...

Here are some more pictures, she was watching the military band playing at the summer residence Graasten Palace. These are from UK Press:

She is not on duty but on holiday...She has said in a interview that if ther is an ashtray nearby her, she takes a cigaret and smoke it and thats all.
 
I think it would be weird if QMII didn't smoke in public. She's not encouraging anything because she's just being herself. She's done it for so long that it's just a part of who she is (including a part of who her public persona is), so I really don't think it's a big deal for her.

If someone like Queen Beatrix (who supposedly hides her habit) just started smoking in public, then it might draw some attention, but QMII is so normal and nonchalant about it that it really doesn't bother me.
 
I think this queen is terrific but I find her smoking in public to be in poor taste.

Lovely photos, and lovely to see! They all look so happy.
 
Yes Benedicte always looks ellegant. The queen looks good in those colourful dress, it is summer time:). Mary's dress looks lovely the shoes and its colour also matchs with the dress, just the coat's colour ruin the attire, it will be good if the coat colour is pale rose like her shoes'. Alexandra berleburg' skirt is very interesting.

Wonderful to see such a big part of the Royal Family gathered for the gift presentation! Especially nice to see Princess Benedikte and her children appearing together with the rest of the buch.

One of the wedding gifts that were presented on Wednesday was a tennis pavillion from the Sønderjylland region. It's made in dark steel and glass, and costed about 450 000 Danish Crowns. The pavillion is designed by architect Poul Fræhr Hansen, and both the Queen and Crown Princely Couple have taken part in deciding colour and details of it.
 
Thanks so much for the info GrandDuchess ... a tennis pavillion is a pretty nice gift. Do all members of the family play tennis?

... and the presents just keep coming ... aren't they a lucky couple! Won't their baby have fun playing with the miniature palace when he/she is older?

What is she wearing on her top? Is that a belt or does her belly hang out (I hope that's not it, it's just too Britney Spears to think about).
 
No, it's part of the top; it has 2 layers. I really like the coat. But the sleeves are a little too long!

I love her look in the Grasten pictures: great hair, makeup, jewellery, dress, coat, shoes. I really love the dress and the coat ! Not sure if I love them together, but still great outfit altogether.

And, one more time, lovely necklace and earrings!
 
I really like the way she put her outfits together. she did really well on them all.

I also like this black and white siut with the sash that the lady the is wearing too:p
