Gala Dinner, State Visit

State Visit to Denmark – Day 1

First of all, a new photo of Prince Nikolai was released for his 19th birthday! I wish him a very happy birthday!

Today, French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron started their state visit to Denmark. After a wreath-laying ceremony at the Kastellet with the Crown Prince Couple, they met the Queen and the rest of the royal family at Amalienborg Palace.

Princess Marie wore a new red blouse from Tara Jarmon with an old black UFO skirt. Tara Jarmon is Marie’s favorite French brand!

She paired it with her red Michael Kors ‘Clara’ pumps and a new Naledi Copenhagen ‘Sascha’ clutch.

Both her earrings and her ring are old and UFO. She first wore the earrings in 2014 and the ring to the New Year’s Gala earlier this year.

The Presidential Couple and the Crown Prince Couple had several events scheduled in the afternoon before the gala dinner. Queen Margrethe wore the sash of the Order of the Légion d’Honneur ( she is Grand Cross which is the highest level and the only one with a sash).

The Crown Prince Couple wore the sash of the Order of National Merit (second highest French order).

Princess Marie wore the cross of Grand Officer of the Légion d’Honneur (highest order) which she received back in 2017. It seems Prince Joachim also received the Légion d’Honneur (cross+ red medal).

Princess Benedikte wore the sash of her Order of the Elephant.

Queen Margrethe and Emmanuel Macron made speeches as usual during a gala dinner but this one was special as they both held their speeches in French, per Queen Margrethe’s request. You can read Margrethe’s speech here.

Princess Marie was seated next to François Zimeray, the French ambassador to Denmark who will leave his position on Thursday.

For this gala dinner, Princess Marie surprised us all by debuting a new tiara! It seems to be made of diamonds and a sapphire but I emailed the Court to try and get more information. It seems that Marie also has a matching ring but I couldn’t find a good shot of it. UPDATE 30/08: You can read more about Marie’s ‘Nuits Claires’ tiara here.

She wore a new Rikke Gudnitz off the shoulder gown for this very special gala dinner. The gown was custom made for Marie by her favorite designer.

She paired her new jewels and her new gown with UFO earrings from 2014 and an old UFO clutch.
