On new year's morning, Frederik, Mary and their son (who hadn't been named yet) were seen taking a plane to fly to Copenhagen.
This was Mary's first real nytårskur - the previous new year's court had been downscaled to a reception behind closed doors due to the tsunami disaster in Sout East Asia, which also killed many Danes.
Mary wore a new gown by Herik Hviid and her ruby parure.
... and countess Alexandra of Frederiksborg - Joachim's ex wife. In 2006 she no longer entered the palace with the royal familt, but had to take the guest entry. She did get the honour of being the last to arrive - which means she was the highest in rank.
