Tonight, Queen Margrethe hosts a gala dinner to celebrate Prince Joachim’s 50th birthday at Amalienborg. Read more below.
New official photos of Prince Joachim and his family were taken by Steen Brogaard and released by the Court today to celebrate his birthday.
In the new official photo, Princess Marie is wearing an old By Malene Birger top.
For the first time, Queen Margrethe’s eight grandchildren attended a gala dinner. Usually, you have to be at least 18 and this is why only Prince Nikolai attended the gala dinner for Crown Prince Frederik’s 50th birthday in May 2018.
The celebration for Prince Joachim’s birthday had already started earlier this week when he attended a charity concert and a birthday dinner with Princess Marie and his brother Crown Prince Frederik.
On Tuesday, Billed-Bladet published a long exclusive interview with Prince Joachim in which he talks about his childhood, his place in the royal family, the future move to Paris and how important his family is to him. You can read my full translation here.
Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and their children Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena arriving at the dinner:
Other guests included Prince Joachim’s ex-wife, Countess Alexandra and several close friends such as Charles-Henri Keller, Oskar and Britt Siesbye as well as Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana of Greece and Princess Alexandra and her husband Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille.
I can exclusively confirm that Princess Marie is wearing a new gown by her favorite designer Rikke Gudnitz tonight!
She paired it with her Michael Kors sandals and Jimmy Choo clutch! She also wore her ufo earrings from 2014 and the Queen Alexandrine Diamond and Sapphire Pendant as a brooch.
Princess Athena wore a new dress by Jacadi!
