Already in the morning on May 26th, the royal house posted a few new photos of the Crown Prince and his family. The new official photo of Crown Prince Frederik you find to your right. What you see above is the second photo posted. Both moments are captured by talented photographer Franne Voigt. It is not the first he has taken wonderful photos of the Crown Prince couple, here.

During the day, it was also announced that a brand new book was published on occasion of the Crown Prince's birthday, here. It shows photos of the Crown Prince from his life. The book is a gift from his wife, who, together with four different photographers, have found and collected memories in this new book. Some of them are also from their private collection. The book comes in a limited edition. I already purchased myself a copy of the book.

It was around noon when the Crown Prince stepped out on the balcony at Amalienborg. Just like his mother has done a million times before. With a huge smile on his face, he seemed overwhelmed by all the Danes attending this little moment of history. Shortly after, the Crown Prince was surrounded by his wife, all four children and his mother the Queen. 'Happiness' is probably the best word to describe how the Crown Prince couple looked standing on the balcony. While Crown Prince Frederik and his two sons looked handsome in each their fitting suit; the Crown Princess and the two daughters  stunned in beautiful dresses. Crown Princess Mary met the Danes wearing a reused Vilshenko dress and paired it with drop earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Love the detail that all three "girls" embraced the same beautiful hairstyle.

Queen Margrethe hosted a gala dinner on occasion of Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday on May 26th. Family and friends for near and far, were invited to celebrate the Crown Prince. The dinner took place at Christiansborg Castle in Copenhagen in the room with all the amazing tapestries and checkered floor. Normally, the Queen arrive last but this time, the Crown Prince couple took that honor. They arrive to Christiansborg by carriage. The couple drove from Amalienborg, across the city to Christiansborg. Drivning in carriage across the city, gave the couple the opportunity to share another moment with the Danes. Thousands of Danes showed up to get a glimpse of the beautiful couple.

Arriving to Christiansborg, the Crown Prince couple were warmly welcomed by Queen Margrethe, here, -and a handfull of journalists and photographers. It was a true pleasure to see the three of them together. Then all 400 guests were welcomed with a handshake, before dinner was served in the Banquet hall. The Queen welcomed all with the first of three speeches. Prime Minister Lars L√łkke Rasmussen also gave a great speech in honor of the Crown Prince's birthday. Then, in her new beaded lace gown from Spangenberg Copenhagen and shiny jewelry, the Crown Princess gave her outstanding speech. She is indeed an amazing speaker and this speech was the best I have ever heard. Warm, sincere, perfect in public but still personal. It had everything a speech need to become a succes. Around midnight, dancing was declared and the music played while the guests enjoyed a dance with their loved ones.

-May, 27th-
The official celebration of Crown Prince Frederik ended on Saturday evening with a gala show broadcasted live on Danish television. So around 8:00 pm local time, the Crown Prince couple arrived to Royal Arena in Copenhagen along with all four children. More than 12,500 people were gathered in the arena, ready to celebrate the Crown Prince and enjoy a great show, which lasted over two hours. I watched the show and all family members seemed to sincerely enjoy themselves. Prince Christian and his three sibiling's were interviewed and told the most sweet things about their father -like he always laughs about his own jokes, that he is very much loved by his children and they think their father would like a travel with his family as present for his birthday. All of it made him smile and laugh. Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Prince Felix also attended the show, such as Countess Alexandra did. Crown Princess Mary's sister also attended, as at the gala dinner the day earlier.
At the show, the Crown Princess dazzled in a bright pink creation from Etro. Heaven manages to identify it. Beautifully she accessorized it with a matching pink Carlend Copenhagen clutch, Aquazzura lace-up pumps and new earrings. She embraced the style with curly hair and modest makeup.

  1. I 'm not fan of this tiara I prefer sparkling Ruby Parure,interesting Midnight Tiara or soft wedding tiara but I must say that it matches perfect with gown.

    1. Think the reason why she chose this tiara is because of the colour. The gold matches the colour of her dress pretty well. Think te wedding tiara would be better than the ruby tiara or even the midtnight tiara. Personally, I think this one looks beautiful with her new dress and hairstyle.

    3. You are very welcome. About her sister; you are not mistaken. Crown Princess Mary's sister was in fact attending the celebration as the only representative from the Crown Princess' family.

  3. Henriette:

    Wow, a lovely speech. Very evocative. One could not mistake the references to the late Prince Henrik, which to me was very sweet--suggesting how much he is missed and also alluding to how very much the crown prince is like his father. Unless I overlooked it, there was no reference to his mother, the Queen. Finally, do you recognized the song quoted at the end of the speech and if you do, what is the name of the artist?

    Thank you in advance.

    RW.

    1. No she did not mention the Queen in her speech -unless I overlooked that as well.

      Correct, the Crown Princess quoted a song which is by 'Simple Minds' and is called "All the things she said". Hope this helps.
