Yes, it is, coco. I wonder if today's events are intended for the people of Denmark, or the Jylland region specifically, and perhaps we will see the relatives at next week's events? I'm just guessing, of course.

Preparations are all in place in Aarhus, according to multiple local newspaper articles.

Can anyone else see the live feed?

Mary and Frederik arrived. Mary looking very elegant. Recycled pretty old coat, I think. Looks familiar.

The rest of the family have arrived at City Hall. I don't have the tools on this laptop to take good screen captures today, but I'm sure the press photos will start to flow soon.
