Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the state council dinner at Christian VIIs Palace, Amalienborg, hosted by the Queen.
Members of the Danish Parliament were invited to a State council dinner taking place at Christian VIIs Palace at Amalienborg. This very special dinner was hosted by Queen Margrethe. I have been waiting with great excitement, just to find this one single picture (as you see below). At least we got one. I had hoped to get a few pictures of the Queen and Crown Prince couple before the dinner was about to take place. That didn't happened. I guess the three royal family members welcomed all the special invited guest when they arrived to Amalieborg, having already 'arrived'. As you know; both Queen Margrethe (and her husband Prince Henrik of course) and the Crown Prince couple lives in each their palace at Amalienborg - Frederik and Mary at Frederik VIIIs Palace and the Queen and Prince Henrik at Christian IXs Palace during the winter. Only a couple of hours before the dinner was about to begin, the royal family shared a photo showing the most beautiful decorated table with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, here. I wouldn't mind enjoy my evening surrounded by golden wall decorations, chandeliers, silver cutlery and a royal member next to me. I am allowed to dream, right?
The lack of pictures and with this as the only one from the state council dinner; I have a hard time commenting on what the Crown Princess was wearing during the evening. Still, we get a glimpse of her. At your right, sitting almost in the middle of the long table. This is just enough to tell what evening gown Mary wore. Her floor-length gown from Temperley London, a dress we have seen at one previous occasion before last night. It was at a dinner, also hosted at Queen Margrethe, taking place at Christiansborg castle for representatives from Danish art and culture, here. At the dinner in 2016, I clearly remember that many of you was thrilled when she showed up in this gown. So was I and I think it is absolutely amazing there is a chance we get to see her in again one day. Pretty sure her hair is in a updo. The Queen wore a wonderful bright red evening gown featuring what to me looks like a lace top.
