Gala Dinner

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie at New Year’s Gala Dinner !

Tonight , the first tiara event of the year took place at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen. The gala takes place each year and the royal family as well as the Governement, the President of Parliament , representatives and members of the court attend. We took a look at Princess Marie’s outfits the previous years yesterday on Twitter and you can check it out here.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie arrived first at Amalienborg Palace. All the members of the Royal Family wore the necklace of the Order of the Elephant , the highest Danish order. You can see a video of the arrivals here.

Princess Marie wore the Rikke Gudnitz white and gold gown she first wore during the Belgian state visit in March last year.

She wore her Christian Dior shoes , first worn in 2014,  and her favorite New Year’s Gala clutch which is still UFO. Her earrings are new but the ring is old and UFO. I haven’t seen a good photo of the bracelet yet.

You can see a video of the arrival here:

Prince Nikolai arrived with his parents, Prince Joachim and Countess Alexandra, his step-mother Princess Marie and his siblings Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena.

Princess Mary and her children, Princes Christian and Vincent and Princesses Isabella and Josephine were also there. Crown Prince Frederik, Prince Nikolai’s godfather, wasn’t there because he had to attend an IOC meeting in South Korea.

For this family dinner, Princess Marie wore a new Erdem dress with her Christian Dior shoes first worn in 2014.


She wore her favorite Christine Hvelplund ring with old Christine Hvelplund earrings. I believe she was also carrying her old Jimmy Choo clutch from 2014.
