Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik hosted their second New Years reception for the Supreme Court judges, the Royal Guard and the regiments Officer Corps. The dinner took place at Christian VII's Palace like the first new year reception on January 1st. Later in the evening they hosted another reception for the Diplomatic Corps at Christiansborg, the Danish parliament.
I always wondered why it is only the first new year reception people like and think is the most amazing because those we see in the day after is just as fantastic! I have never heard anyone as enthusiastic about these other reception as me. I am just as excited. Colourful dresses, guests from all over the world dressed in the most fantastic clothes and of course Frederik and Mary will be there. A dinner just get even better when they attend. Today Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik hosted their second New Years reception for the Supreme Court judges, the Royal Guard and the regiments Officer Corps. 124 guests were invited to a dinner at Christian VII's Palace. Later in the evening they hosted another reception for the Diplomatic Corps at Christiansborg. As the tradition says all guests greets the attended royal family before entering the dining room to find their seats. This took around 45 minutes which was a little too much for our 70 year old Queen Margrethe who was given a chair which was way more comfortable for her. The same happened last year and her husband, Prince Henrik, chose to support his wife and got a chair as well. Today's New Year's reception has moved into Christiansborg, where foreign leaders had the opportunity to get a royal handshake and wish the royal family a happy new year and vice versa. That is plenty of handshakes for one single person but it's something all royal's are use to.
