As a member of the royal family, Princess Elisabeth through her life and work demonstrated exceptional loyalty to her lineage and the Royal Danish House. As a patron, Her Highness handled official duties for Denmark in parallel to her 45-year civil service career in the ministry of foreign affairs. There, Princess Elisabeth was employed as a head of section, and the Princess was posted abroad several times through the years. The first time was at the Danish embassy in Washington from 1973 to 1976 and again from 1981 to 1985, and the most recent was at the Danish UN Mission in Geneva from 1989 to 1993.

  1. I wasn't aware of this Danish princess. What very graceful, long-fingered hands she had.

    1. Also a surprise to me, that she was in the order of succession.
      Even though, she was a cousine to the Queen, I think she lived unknown and anonymous to most of the people, it seems as the media only was interested in following The Queen and the Princesses Benedikte, Mary and Marie in their duties/jobs.
