The Danish royal family held their annual portrait session at Grasten Castle on Friday. Although the group was slimmed down a bit -- Joachim and Marie's family did not attend -- we still got to see a bit of sparkle on display.

Queen Margrethe was firmly in the spotlight with her bright pink ensemble.

She accessorized with a brooch in the shape of an anchor, set with diamonds and sapphires. The brooch has been in her jewelry box for decades.

Crown Princess Mary went with a bohemian summertime look, but she still added a few glittering accessories.

Here's a look at her earrings, which feature round gray pearls suspended from a clear stone.

On her left hand, she wore her engagement and wedding rings; on her wrist, she wore a common royal accessory: a gold love bracelet from Cartier.

The bracelet she wore on her right wrist was festooned with colorful beads.

Behind Mary and Fred, you can see two members of the extended family: Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and her husband, Jefferson von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth.

Of course, the real stars of any royal photo session are the kids. Here's Prince Christian, Prince Vincent, and Ingrid von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth.

Josephine and Vincent also took some time out to help give the dogs some exercise. Very thoughtful! :-)
