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.

For this gala dinner, Princess Marie surprised us all by debuting a new tiara! It seems to be made of diamonds and 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.

State Visit

Reception hosted by the Icelandic Presidential couple during their state visit to Denmark

Last night, after a day of engagements with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, the President of Iceland and his wife hosted a reception in honor of the Royal family at the Hotel in Copenhagen.

Return dinner & reception hosted by the couple visiting is a tradition during a state visit which the entire royal family attends. It’s usually a great way to see them together in a less formal setting than during a gala dinner.
For this reception, Princess Marie wore a jacket which she first wore in 2011 while pregnant with Princess Athena and a old UFO skirt.

She also wore her Bottega Veneta brown clutch with nude Sergio Rossi pumps and her Christine Hvelplund earrings and ring.
