Princess Elisabeth completed the first 4 weeks of training in a year-long military course, earning a Blue Beret along with 180 other students.

I dag offentliggøres et nyt officielt gallaportræt af Hendes Majestæt Dronningen 🇩🇰⁣ ⁣ Portrættet er taget i anledning af Dronningens 80-års fødselsdag i april i år og efterfølger det seneste officielle portræt fra 2012. Der er tradition for, at regentportrætter med mellemrum udskiftes, ofte i forbindelse med særlige begivenheder, jubilæer eller runde fødselsdage. Portrætterne er derfor også en del af fortællingen om Danmarks statsoverhoveds liv og virke.    ⁣ ⁣ Det nye portrætfotografi af Dronningen i Kuppelsalen på Fredensborg Slot er skabt af fotograf Per Morten Abrahamsen i sommeren 2020 og viser Majestæten i galla med Elefantordenen i skærf, Frederik 9.s ordensportræt, Dannebrogordenens storkommandørkors og Elefantordenens bryststjerne. Desuden bærer Dronningen sit Perlepoire-sæt bestående af diadem, halskæde, ørenringe og broche med brillanter. Sættet har Majestæten gennem tiden båret på flere officielle gallaportrætter.⁣ ⁣ Portrættet, som er indfattet i en nydesignet ramme af dansk eg med Kongekronen øverst, vil fremover kunne ses ophængt i blandt andet statslige institutioner, herunder ambassader og konsulater samt på danske fartøjer.⁣ ⁣ 📸 Per Morten Abrahamsen, Kongehuset ©️

  1. Such a busy Royal week! I love it!

    Great photos of the Imperial Royals.
    Congratulations to Princess Elisabeth.
    Queen Margrethe looks lovely.
    Princess Charlene looks incredible. Very chic dress and styling!
    So wonderful to see the close up details of Princess Beatrice’s dress.

    – I would love to see the Countess of Wessex in the cream straw sidesweep with silk hatband bow and orchids by Joaquina Pereira
    – Such a fabulous green on the Edwina Ibbotsen hat with overlapping bow trim. I hope to see it on Princess Haya.

    A wonderful interview this week with Queen Maxima, UN Special Envoy for Inclusive Finance for Development. We tend to forget she used to be an Economist before becoming Queen. I am so impressed with her accomplishments! Very classy, intelligent woman!

      • I have to confess that I am awake on weekends at 3am to study economics for my MBA. I have promised myself that when I eventually graduate, I will buy a hat in Edinburgh. So, Queen Maxima is someone who I look up to because she’s intelligent, can do economics, she bakes, and wears fabulous hats! She is amazing!
