One thought on “Banquet at Christiansborg Palace

  1. What an excellent quartet of well-dressed ladies! The Queen was wearing her Floral Aigrette Tiara, my second favorite Danish tiara. She and her hairdresser have so much fun configuring it around her coiffure! Princess Benedikte had her A-game going and Crown Princess Mary was wearing one of her most beautiful gowns. Princess Marie was more low-key, but very elegant. Good show all around!
