Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik attended on occasion of Prince Henrik's 80th birthday, a gala performance in DR's concert hall, Copenhagen, along with the Crown Prince couple, Prince Christian and Princess Isabella, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix. The Queens sister Queen Anne-Marie and her husband King Konstantin of Greece and Princess Elisabeth were also invited. 

June 11th 2014, it is a very special for Prince Henrik because he turns 80! What better why to celebrate the Prince than gathering the whole family for a gala performance in DR's concert hall, Copenhagen. And what a night! Shortly before 7 pm. local time, the royal family arrived ready to attend a wonderful evening hosted by Nikolaj Koppel (pianist, musical director and journalist) and Cecilie Stenspil (actress). Right before Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik arrived, the Crown Prince couple and their two oldest children arrived to the concert hall in Copenhagen, part of the DR city at Amager. Prince Christian and Princess Isabella stole my heart! A little shy in front of the cameras, who wouldn't be? Both Frederik and Mary seemed extremely proud of their kids. Again, who wouldn't be? Prince Joachim and Princess Marie also attend along with his two oldest sons -Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix, such as King Constantine of Greece and Queen Anne-Marie and Princess Elisabeth did. The William Blakes, pianist Bent Fabricius-Bjerre and comedian Andreas Bo entertained as part of the gala performance. All of it was broadcasted live on Danish TV, which I of course watched with great pleasure! Pictures can tell a story but a live footage gives a much better impression of what was actually going on. 

It was a sea of tiny light balls when Mary stepped out of the car arriving to the concert hall accompanied by Frederik, Prince Christian and Princess Isabella. She was wearing the most magnificent Tony Maticevski (Spring/Summer 2013) evening gown featuring golden details dazzling in the flashlights of cameras! Actually it's not the first time we see the dress but feels like it. Do you remember it? -When she gave an interview to Women's Weekly in 2013, here. Perfectly matching the golden details on the dress, Mary had chosen golden jewelleries from Danish jeweller Marianne Dulong; a pair of large loop earrings featuring a gold/diamond pendant, such as a couple of bracelets. And then there is a ring on her finger. First I told you it was a silver ring from Georg Jensen from their Fusion collection -I was completely wrong (I make mistakes as everybody else). With a few more photos I have come to the conclusion it is a design by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. A winter frost ring or a spring ring. Make up your mind and let me know. If you find a clearer photo of her hand wearing the ring, please feel free to share it with me. As the jewellery match everything stunningly, the Judith Leiber clutch and metallic Manolo Blahnik pumps did too. I learned about the pumps from Pernille who shared the ID with me earlier. Dazzling as the rest, her hairstyle is worth noticing. A rather simple, yet very elegant, chignon created with a gold hairband. And of course I have to mention the adorable Princess Isabella in her ice blue dress and curly hair! Isn't she just the sweetest thing you have ever seen? Handsome dressed as his father, we Prince Christian wearing a black suit.
