I think you can also find pictures of Margaretha in the Biography of Crown Princess Märtha and we also have a thread on her father-in-law Prince Valdemar and family. There might also be something in the thread about her sister Queen Astrid of Belgium

So that's who Prince Axel was! He was another nephew of King Christian X!

By the way, has anyone else noticed the resemblance between Duchess Ingeborg and her cousin Maud of Wales, queen of Norway?
