In Denmark, the New Year's Court receptions continue on two consecutive days. These are events that require formal dress - long dresses, orders, gloves, etc. - but are held during the day, so tiaras are not worn. (Spain also gets in the action this week, and I intend to cover that and today's events in Denmark separately.) Two receptions were held yesterday in Denmark, with the Queen, Crown Prince, and Crown Princess present. Prince Henrik will no longer attend as part of his retirement.
