Earlier today, Crown Prince Frederik was joined by his mother, his wife and his children on the balcony of Amalienborg Palace to be celebrated by the Danish people.

Tonight, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended the gala dinner along with other members of the royal family and members of foreign royal families.

Prince Nikolai’s mother Countess Alexandra attended too. It was really great to see her wearing her tiara and the Order of the Elephant again! She wore a lovely new pink lace gown by Elsa Adams.

Princess Marie wore a new Elie Saab blue sequined gown. My very good friend Laura found it and I couldn’t be happier. Like I said on Twitter, this was my dream combo so I legit had tears in my eyes when Laura sent that message. I am so happy and she looks very good! Princess Marie decided to remove the sleeves, which I think was a good decision as I feel like the sleeved version might have been too much for Marie.

I can’t be 100% sure but I believe her new navy suede sandals are from Michael Kors. The ‘Hutton’ sandals are described as such: “Luxe suede construction and a stiletto heel combine to a refined effect on our Hutton sandals. Fastened with a slim, adjustable ankle strap, this minimalist style adds alluring height to bodycon dresses and denim alike.”

She accessorized with her blue Bottega Veneta clutch.

She wore her usual diamond floral tiara with new earrings. Christine Hvelplund, Princess Marie’s favorite jewelry designer, confirmed to me that these new earrings were part of her newest collection but they aren’t available yet. They are called ‘Fairytale’.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie privately celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary on 24 May and they looked very happy tonight!

We’ll next see Prince Joachim and Princess Marie tomorrow when they’ll attend the concert ‘All of Denmark celebrates its Crown Prince’ with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.
