Members of the Danish Royal Family attend a reception for the Turkish president and his wife
Queen Margrethe II, Prince Joachim, and Princess Marie attend the return dinner tonight.
Always looking like a movie star!
It appears that Marie may have recycled a dress from Queen Margrethe’s 70th Birthday Celebrations in 2010. The red dress she wore tonight in Copenhagen looks like it could be the same dress, but with a lace cover. We’ll need better photos from tonight to confirm, but it’s possible.
Now that we have a better photo, I stick by my thought that this is the same dress. Marie first wore it for Queen Margrethe’s 70th Birthday Celebration Gala Performance in April 2010. Some minor alterations seemed to have been done to the straps and a lace cover was added.
Mary is apparently wearing a newish dress (looks like one she wore in a photoshoot last year) and Marie appears to be wearing a new dress. Both are wearing their regular tiaras.
At 21:55 (4:55pm EST) there will be a 30 minute run down of the trip so far at Dr.dk
Members of the Danish Royal Family welcome the president of Turkey to the country.
With Princess Marie wearing a new tiara, there’s been some minor discussion about it not being “fair” that she received a new tiara while Crown Princess Mary, the future Queen, did not.
The truth is, Marie will likely only ever have access to two tiaras. Which, by the way, is one more than Princess Alexandra had and she was in the family for much longer.
Mary, on the other hand, will have access to around 10 tiaras when she becomes Queen Consort, unless Margrethe leaves some to other members of the family. She simply does not need another new tiara.
It could be that Marie will end up with one more tiara, but Mary will have many at her disposal, and that doesn’t include the possibility of her receiving brand new tiaras.
So yes, it is fair that Marie was given a new piece (though it is just a loan, like the Midnight Tiara) while Mary has not been given a new one since 2009. Soon enough, Mary will have quite a selection to choose from.
