  5. I have a question for those who know. HM looks fantastic, as usual. I like her longer, columnar dresses.

    I have noticed that she wears the ribbons with a photo of the sovereign, which I assume is her father. But, she is Queen so I did not think this style would be in use. QEII does not do this, and obviously each country has their own style, but am I seeing it correctly? Is she honoring her father and therefore the sovereign before her by wearing these?

    Thanks for anyone's insights.

    1. Dellbabe68 - for your question regarding the photo medallion, I have translated the following information from the webpage of Kolding Hus museum:

      “The tradition of female membres of the danish royal family carrying a miniature portrait of the regent began in the first half of the 1700s with Queen Anna Sophie, who presumably had a special need to show her dignity as the regent's wife. She was first married to Frederik IV on the left, while he was still married to Queen Louise, the mother of the throne follower, on the right. Anna Sophie became Denmark's only non-princely queen so far when she married the monarch on the right the day after Queen Louise's funeral.

      When Queen Margrethe II took over the throne after her father in 1972, as the first female Danish regent since the medieval most powerful Danish woman, Margrethe 1st, the tradition had to be adapted to the new reality. Queen Margrethe has chosen to wear a portrait medallion with a portrait of the previous regent, her father, Frederick 9, while she has given her daughters-in-law each a portrait medallion with a portrait of the current regent, the Queen herself.“ - Amalie
