DAYS OF ROYAL SPLENDOUR

The Royal welcoming committee 
at the Gala dinner at Christianborg Castle.

This past weekend I have followed the culmination of all the 40 th. Jubilee celebrations around Queen Margrethe of Denmark, as a Monarch.

I was quite excited to see all the dresses at the different events. I won´t say a word about what I didn´t like, but try to stay positive and show a selection of dresses that in my opinion stod out and were inspiring.

As you can see The Royal family looks like they agreed on different shades of blue in velvet and silkduchess. Maybe in honour of late King Frederik 9. who died the day before The Queen took over.




Especially I noticed the dress of Princess Benedikte. Very interesting mix of color, fabric and technics. Notice how the light affects the color. 
The simple dress of her sister, former Queen Anne Marie of Greece, with a nice bow-detail in the front looked elegant too.


Princess Nathalie of Berleburg, the daughter of Princess Benedikte also stod out in a very nice dress, that would have looked even nicer if the fit had been better.

The day before Danish television/ DR were celebrating The Queen with a nice Event in their Concert Hall. Here are the Scandinian Royals arriving.

Queen Margrethe in a new nice emerald-green lace-gown, most likely designed by herself and made by her personal tailor, Birgitte Thaulow

Queen Silvia of Sweden also looking nice in a pink lace- or brocade-gown.

Queen Sonja of Norway in an old, but remarkable gown from 1991, by the late danish couturier, Erik Mortensen of Balmain.

I just love the look of our Majesty the Queen and her Prince-husband. Though the dress of Queen Sonja is much more daring and nicely designed, the look gets a bit too close to the look of my adored barbie & ken dolls! Pardonnez-moi!
I think Queen Margrethe and prince Henri look much better, more modern and more majestic as a couple. I just adore it, when men do not dress in black! So thumbs up!
