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.
