From corbis:

Royalty at Festival Performance
Original caption: Dutch Royal Rift Officially Denied. Stockholm: Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands (third from right) takes his place among Royalty at a festival performance at a theater in Drottningholm, a royal castle outside Stockholm. The reported rift between Prince Bernhard and Queen Juliana ascribed to tension between the royal couple because of Queen Juliana's association with a faith healer was denied at a news conference called by the Dutch government June 15th. The royal members attending the performance are (left to right): Britain's Princess Margaret; England's Duke of Edinburgh; Queen Louise of Sweden; Prince Bernhard; Queen Elizabeth of England; and King Gustaf Adolf of Sweden.
Date Photographed: June 16, 1956 Location Information: Stockholm. Sweden

In the frist picture of King Carl-Gustaf's 40th, is that Queen Margrethe next to Queen Sofia? She looks amazing! So very glam!

Thanks Marengo. I couldn't believe I couldn't recognize Prince Knud and Caroline Mathilde. When they were younger, they had very distinctive features. It's amazing that Crownprincess Sybilla looks almost as old as her father-in-law.

:) The thread used to be here one or two years ago, and was so succesfull that it needed a 2nd thread back then, but I am glad you like it. Yes, it is Margrethe, and I agree, she looks amazing!

--

to Ysabel:

I agree, they look the same age, but with her I think the grey hair does the trick, while the king still looks young (also compared to his son-in-law, the king of Denmark). I usually recognise Sybilla by her bonestructure, the jaw, which her son has as well, and Madelaine a bit (I hope this makes sense). And my trick to distinguish Caroline-Mathilde is to look at her teeth, not as distinctive as those of her sons and daughter, but you can see the resemblance.

That's funny, norwegianne Weren't they trying to marry him off to Princess Marina of Kent also? Quite the eligible bachelor, King Olav.

According to 'Princess Marina' by Sophia Watson, not only the press was trying but the king himself as well (as was the case with the Queen mother).

From Corbis again, two pictures of the weeding of Phillipe and Mathilde. King Albert II seems quite the joker

Ah, so King Olav was quite the ladies man in his golden years. Here I was thinking he was burning a torch for his late wife, Crown Princess Martha.

Thanks so much for posting these pics, Marengo. I love how Princess Margrethe is peeking behind her grandfather, King Carl Adolf of Sweden in Harald's wedding pic. Queen Ingrid wore a fabulous set of jewellery to that event.

Harald's baptism brought out some seldom seen royals. I recognize the ever elegant, Queen Maud, daughter of Queen Alexandra, and the striking Princess Ingeborg of Sweden (nee Denmark) mother of Crown Princess Martha. Martha took her looks from her mother. I think the old man in the red uniform is Martha's father Prince Carl. The boy in the middle has a priceless expression, though I don't know who he is.
