This week’s royal round up is going to be a little different. Instead of the usual round up, this post is dedicated to Queen Margrethe‘s second day of birthday celebrations on April 16 (her actual 75th birthday) that I didn’t have time to post during the week.
Balcony appearances at Amalienborg Palace:
L-R: Crown Prince Frederik, Princess Isabella, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Vincent, Princess Marie, Queen Margrethe, Prince Nikolai, Prince Christian, Prince Felix, Princess Athena, Prince Henrik, Prince Joachim, Princess Josephine.
L-R: Prince Daniel, Crown Princess Victoria, Queen Silvia, King Carl XVI Gustaf.
L-R: Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, King Harald.
L-R: King Constantine, Queen Anne-Marie, Princess Benedikte.
There was lunch at the Copenhagen Town Hall:
Queen Margrethe looked nice in mint and her diamond daisy brooch.
Crown Princess Mary wore navy and accessorized in grey. Her hat is by Jane Taylor and the same style has been worn by both Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Zara Phillips.
Princess Marie ties for favorite day outfit due to the nice green color and the bird brooch.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Princess Victoria both wore white. Victoria wore pearls while Mette-Marit wore some skull earrings (love!).
Queen Silvia ties for favorite with Marie because I love the purple and the cape.
Princess Benedikte wore a nice pink color while Queen Anne-Marie wore an oatmeal color.
Earlier in the morning Margrethe was woken up by a traditional morning greeting of singing.

L-R: King Harald, King Carl XVI Gustaf, Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima.
Here are some photos from the gala dinner at Fredensborg Palace in the evening of April 16. This was a black tie dinner without tiaras, which is a shame. Also a shame, most of the royals were already at the palace and did not have to arrive for the dinner. There are only a few photos of a few of them arriving, so sorry for the lack of certain people like Victoria.
Queen Margrethe repeated her light blue gown from the Dutch State Visit back in March. This time she wore it with turquoise and gold jewelry (gifts from Prince Henrik – the necklace was her birthday gift this year). I much prefer this dress with the pearls she rocked back in March.
Crown Princess Mary wore a shiny 70s-looking dress. It’s really shiny, but I like the brooch near her neck. Crown Prince Frederik looked good in his suit.
Princess Marie didn’t wow, but she looked nice. At least there was no peplum. I like Prince Joachim‘s velvet, but the jacket is too big on him; he needs a tailor.
Princess Benedikte… that’s a lot of floral.
This is King Harald of Norway and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece chatting. Anne-Marie wore a very similar dress to the one she wore the night before – the pattern and color are only slightly different.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit also rocked a floral dress.
Here’s a side view of Crown Prince Haakon sitting next to Margrethe.
There was lots of wind during the day events and some of the lady’s hats fell off. Here are some funny wind incident photos.
