From DR: " We know that Danes - and others curious - abroad at the moment can not see when the Crown Prince is celebrated.

We are working to get the signal opened so that everyone can see. We apologize for the inconvenience."

 

There is hope for a proper coverage!

You are right. It does look a bit odd.

That gold tiara would look much better on dark hair.

It's a really, really beautiful tiara but the colour is so very golden. As you say, I think it will look better with age.

Or on dark hair.

good point about hair color!  maybe it's the contrast btwn the silver hair and the gold that i find odd.

 

yes, i do really like the tiara in and of itself.  i'm from india, and used to seeing a lot of gold jewelry and find it attractive.  but i'm used to seeing it with dark hair (and different skin tone).

Excerpts from the Queen's speech:

- It is with great pleasure that I welcome you this evening, where we celebrate the Crown Prince's 50th birthday. I have been looking forward to celebrate you on this day where you are surrounded by friends and family from near and far.
 
- You stand, as you say, in the middle of life. Much have you achieved and much have you experienced, and these days you've been able to feel how all of Denmark cheer you on and look forward to your deeds. With eagerness and energy you go for everything you have to do, and it sets the track for your progress.. Being Crown Prince is not easy at all when you are young and searching, but you have found your way yourself, every time you started a new chapter, you have drawn from the strength that lives within you, and learned to grit your teeth and completed your race. On Monday you got all of Denmark to run with you. How grandmother would have been proud of you and how I wish Papa had been able to experience your round birthday, for he was as proud of you as I am. He also saw how you developed your skills year by year.

 

- When you found Mary, you started a new chapter. Now you were two, then three, then four - now, six! A whole family that everyone can look forward to and who joyfully follows and mirrors. You and Mary have managed to create a safe and warm family life, while together and individually taking on tasks that lead you to each other.

You make Denmark bigger, and you honor Denmark. You make me so happy.

Dear Frederik! Congratulations!

 

Let's raise our glasses for Crown Prince Frederik!"
