Over the weekend, Princess Benedikte’s son, Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg was married to his longtime partner, Carina Axelsson. The couple celebrated a civil ceremony on Friday and a private religious ceremony on Saturday.

For the religious ceremony, Carina wore a lovely silk gown with lace coat by Birgit Hallsten. She topped the look with the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg Diamond Spike Tiara you can read more about here and an intricately patterned veil you can see below.


We wish the couple sincere congratulations.

  1. A nice round of repeats for Margrethe. The blue patterned scarf is a great addition to an outfit that is otherwise “a whole lot of biscuit”. I still find her beautiful new cobalt blue cap with the feathers to be perched too far back on her head (although I’m guessing it’s probably designed that way), which gives her a balding effect unfortunately.

    While not surprised, I’m still sad there were no hats to be had for Carina and Gustav’s wedding. I do hope we get to see Carina in a hat again soon as she wore one of my all-time favorite royal hats:

  2. I always enjoy seeing Queen Margrethe enjoying herself in relatively casual dress on her summer cruises. Her pink hat with the twist is one of my favorites — even though it hasn’t been that long since we last saw it, it’s always nice to see it again.

  3. I love the photo of Queen Margarethe against the bench holding her hat

    HQ you had marathon sessions with the Jubilee, it was like Ascot on steroids, well done!!
