Tuesday, December 13th
Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik hosted a Christmas reception for employees and collaborators at Christiansborg castle. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended along with their four children. Also Prince Joachim and his wife Princess Marie were present such as Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena.
What I plesent surprise; Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik hosted a reception at Christiansborg for employees and collaborators. What's more magnificent is that both the Crown Prince family and Prince Joachim and Princess Marie with their two children and Prince Felix were present at the reception. A great way to celebrate Christmas, say thanks for yet another wonderful year to one's staff and gather one's family; all at once! First all the invited guests and the royal family enjoyed the traditional Lucia procession (always on December 13th) followed by a part from the ballet 'Cinderella' which the Queen has set designer of the show. The famous Danish singer MØ also sang one of her songs. Later time was up for the royal family to mingle and they did, with as many as possible. This is what Christmas is for; to enjoy each others company. It all took place in the beautiful Banquet hall at Christiansborg castle. I've been there myself and it's marvelous. Indeed a magnificent room!
As good as it sounds, the sad thing is that we only got to see very few pictures from the reception. I had hoped to see some more of the royal family. But we only got to see a couple blurry photos, that hardly show anything. Having said that, I would really love to have seen more, especially because most of the family was there and I am almost 100% sure Mary was wearing a brand new dress. To me it looks like a black dress featuring long sleeves and maybe a layered skirt. Rather long actually. Think it's printed with either dusty pink flowers or birds. A bit boho-chic. Unfortunately I have not been able to ID it yet, but maybe with your help I will soon be able to tell who the designer is. Can you help me with this one? The shoes I recognized right way; Gianvito Rossi -of course, which is the main reason why I believe the print/pattern is the same dusty colour. And the of course the clutch could be her pink Bottega Veneta. But remember this is only suggestions.
