Prince Joachim’s 50th Birthday Celebration

Queen Margrethe held a private dinner party for Prince Joachim’s 50th Birthday at Christian VII’s mansion on Friday night. Fred, Mary, the kids, and Countess Alexandra were among the guests. Tiaras WERE NOT invited, however. Boo.

A new picture of the family was released to celebrate his birthday. Athena seems really excited!

Celebrations started on the 3rd, with a concert held in Joachim’s honor. Fred was there, as well as Countess Alexandra. I love how she is still very much a presence in the family.

It’s nice that Mary was able to get back in time for the celebration. She had been in Canada for the past few days. And I think she might be wearing a gown that some of you were wishing she’d wear again. Marie’s gown is by Rikke Gudnitz (Thanks to Heaven over at Princess Marie’s Closet).

Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana of Greece were also there, as well as the newlyweds, Princess Alexandra and Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille.

I have to admit that I was a bit bummed about the lack of tiaras. Who was your best dressed? Did you find any photos not featured here? Let us know in the comments!
