Alt er klar til årets første fest i Kongehuset. Om kort tid er Hendes Majestæt Dronningen vært ved nytårskur og -taffel for den kongelige familie, regeringen, folketingets formand, repræsentanter for det officielle Danmark og Hoffet i Christian VII's Palæ på Amalienborg. Et væld af hvide roser, eukalyptus, sølvgrå telansia samt nelliker og snefnugslignede brudeslør pryder palæet og skal minde gæsterne om de kolde vintermåneder. Blomsterdekorationerne er placeret på traditionelle postamenter og spejlplateauer. I århundreder har Kongehuset og danskerne ønsket hinanden et glædeligt nytår og dermed lykke og velstand for hele riget. Oprindelsen til nutidens nytårskure og nytårstaffel fortaber sig, men allerede midt i 1600-tallet omtales begivenhederne omkring årsskiftet som en gammel skik, og grundelementerne er stadig de samme. 📸 Kongehuset©️
