  1. Lovely photos. I do, however, miss seeing QMII and the extended family.
  2. Will we ever be able to see the video from the Sunday event w/the children?
  3. Anyone else surprised or have information as to why Carina Axelsson and Susan and John Donaldson didn't attend?
  4. I was away for the holiday weekend here in the USA and had spotting Wi-Fi coverage. Drats! Yesterday of all days! I was able to see some photos and video on my phone, but nothing like the real thing here on a full computer screen. Yowza! What a Gala! Here are some thoughts: QMII: fabulous new gown. The tiara has always been a No for me -- especially with that color gown. However, I understand why she chose to wear it. Mary: OMG! Fabulous from top-to-toe! Frederik: WOW! He wears 50 quite well I have to say that I was as bit surprised about Marie-Olympia -- looks like she has already started with cosmetic injections. Is that my imagination? Oh well, a fabulous event!
  5. In general, I find this painter's work too dark (literally) …. both portraits of Frederik and Mary are nice, but literally too dark and moody for my taste.
  6. I agree -- probably heavy to wear. However, didn't she wear them in the original style for the New Year Galla?
  7. Mary looks lovely. She's wearing the stud portion of the ruby earrings from the parure.
  8. Loved the skirt she wore today. And, yes, I agree that she wears mid-length skirts well. She has the perfect height to carry it off.
  9. Lovely look, but I think she's missing a jacket or cardigan. JMHO
  10. General news about F&M 2018

    Wow! That is a pretty strict definition of Court Mourning.
  11. I've just rewatched the funeral service. My heart broke during the last hymn which brought her Majesty to tears -- I noticed Christian, in the second row, attempting to hold back his tears. Christian -- between being a child and a teen -- understanding what was happening. Quite touching!
  12. Beautiful service, but I thought it was odd that none of the children of Anne Marie and Benedikte attended the service. JMHO
  13. Looks as if the Queen began to cry quite heavily at the end. I wonder if that's why no photos of the inside of the church at this point?
  14. Is Isabella wearing a Daisy broach?
  15. Christian is a mini-John Donaldson
  16. May he rest in peace.
  17. I've always loved this outfit on Mary. It's been a few years since we've seen it. I don't recognize the earrings. Anyone?
  18. New Year's Levee Christiansborg Palace

    Mary wore this gown last year. I wonder which gown we will see at the next reception?
  19. New Year's Levee & Banquet, Amalienborg

    Happy New Year to my fellow posters! Mary looked fabulous tonight. 'Just love the red gown.
  20. Kudos to Mary for wearing a design by one of the winners. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the dress -- can't decide whether it's the embellishment on the bottom or the shininess of the material. Although I love those shoes ... don't think it was the right choice for that particular dress. Oh well ...
  21. CPM opens HAY Festival Aarhus 2017

    This coat has always been one of my favorites! I think she first wore it either shortly after Christian's birth or while she was pregnant with Isabella. It's a classic!
  22. DRF attend Opening of Parliament

    Mary looks lovely! As for QMII -- that hat, oh dear. Gotta love her "sensible shoes"
  23. DRF at Army Medal of Honour Dinner

    That's the gown Mary wore to the Monegasque wedding reception. I really like that she wore the brooch from the Ruby Parure in a vertical manner rather than the usual horiztonal.
  24. So pleased to see pictures. Fabulous gown and jewelry!
