Danish New Year’s Reception 2018

The Danish Royal family attended the annual New Year’s Court (Nytårskur) and Banquet hosted by Queen Margrethe at Christian VII’s Palace, Amalienborg in Copenhagen on January 1st. Two more New Year’s Levees will be held next week.

Queen Margrethe was joined by Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, and Princess Marie as she hosted the New Year’s Reception and Banquet for the Government, top Civil Servants and the Royal Court at Christian VII’s Palace, Amalienborg. The Royals were pictured arriving at the Palace and reviewing the Guard but the Banquet remained a private event with no photographs released except of the decorations. The Queen’s cousin, Princess Elisabeth, was also in attendance.

One thought on “Danish New Year’s Reception 2018

  1. Oh, wonderful! Queen Margrethe wore the Danish Crown Emerald Parure, which is my favorite Danish tiara. CP Mary was stunning in her new red gown. Princess Marie looked lovely in her repeated gold gown and tiara. I wonder why doesn’t she ever take the Flora Danica Amethyst tiara out once in a while. I think it would have looked marvelous with her gold gown! And it looke like CP Frederick is serious about his facial hair. I think it looks good on him. 🙂
