Prince Joachim's 50th birthday

07 June

Last year, Crown Prince Frederik celebrated his 50th birthday. This year his younger brother Prince Joachim celebrates his. On that occasion new photos have been published, he has been interviewed in several papers and guests from near and far were invited to celebrate him on June 7th.

Queen Margrethe hosted the celebration dinner taking place at Amalienborg Castle on Friday. Both friends and family were invited to attend the dinner. Among others, Prince Nikolaos and his wife Princess Tatiana showed up, such as Princess Alexandra and Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille. Also Countess Alexandra attended to celebrate Prince Joachim.

From closer family did the Crown Prince Couple attend accompanied by all four children - Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine. All of them were in a great mood, just as the birthday-boy himself. He arrived with wife Princess Marie and his four children - Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena.

Crown Prince Frederik looked handsome in a classy suit and butterfly. Both his boys perfectly matched their father in similar suits. Princess Isabella looked wonderful in a power pink laser cut dress from Ganni (similar to this, here). She also wore a really beautiful brooch. It turns out to be one first worn by her great-grandmother, Queen Alexandrine, here. Princess Josephine's blue lace dress made by Elsa Adams (here), really made her a true princess.

Meanwhile, Mary showed up in a reused Jesper Høvring creation. This beautiful floor-length was first worn at Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's big wedding in 2010, here. Back then it looked a bit different. Already a year later she had it altered into the gown we see today. I absolutely loved the dress in 2010, but the changing didn't make it worse. Since Mary last wore the gown in 2011 in Australia, here, I have wished to see her wear this stunning creation again.

She embraced the style by wearing incredible Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen earrings. All diamonds and stones in shades of green. That rather large golden bracelet on her right wrist is an old Børge Niels Knudsen piece. She first wore the bracelet when attending the Designers' Nest Show & Award in 02015, here. The little box clutch is from Judith Leiber and the golden pumps are Manolo Blahnik. A magnificent evening outfit.

  1. I prefer much more second version - it looks more divinely.

  2. What a lovely Family. The children are all from both Families a class act. I like how Nicolai and Felix interact wit Hendrik and Athena. It must have been a great party, since Josefine and Athena are a bundle of energy and fun on some other Family gatherings.All the Royal ladies Gowns were very nice,but Pss Tatiana's stuck out great choice.

    1. It is wonderful that all the children were attending. We rarely see the children for larger events like this, so it was a true pleasure to see all of them. I am sure Prince Joachim enjoyed having all of them around him on this big day.
