To attend the last new year reception for the Officers from Defense and Emergency Management at Christiansborg Palace Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik arrived as a tradition in the golden coach. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary did also participate in the dinner.
The last new year reception this year ended, in my opinion, like an explosion when we talk about clothes! I was sure it was not going to be any better but it did. We leave this for a minute or so and I will assure you we will return talking about her absolutely stunning outfit at todays dinner outfit. It has become a tradition for the Queen and Prince to go for a ride through Copenhagen from Amalienborg Castle to Christiansborg Palace in a golden coach followed by the Gardehusarregimentet on their white horses all dressed in a perfect uniform. I have never experienced it myself but I know many Danes love to follow the coach to get a glimpse of the royals. A beautiful and historic sight. I wonder whether or not I should write a post about the gold coach? It would be relevant and I think you could use a little royal history again. Arriving as the last ones, Margrethe and Henrik greets the guards well-dressed in their red and blue uniform wearing the characteristic hat made of black bearskin. You know it's all about traditions and that's what it is -the Queen greets the guards and do an inspection. Both Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik and Frederik and Mary were all in an excellent mood at today's new year reception. Once again the royals greeted all the attendance before the dinner really started. By the way this is the last of three new year receptions.
