I think, Lady-in-Waitings for the female members of the royal family appoint by The Queen.

I believe lady-in-waitings are helping the queen/princess with their duties :)

I think, royals & aristocrats, however I think all Lady-in-waitings have to be noble.
For example Countess of Rosenborg, Lady-in-Waiting to Princess Benedikt

Who are the ladies in waiting, et all for HRH Crown Princess of Denmark?

In this picture you can see the Swedish Royal Court's dress much better, I believe that the Swedish Royal Court are the only or one of a few courts left to still carry on the tradition of a Court Dress.

The lady in the picture is Elisabeth Palmstierna and she is a Marshall of The Court.

Ladies in Waiting are sort of like assistants, I believe. They keep track of scheduled appointments for princesses and if, for example, they have two scheduled appointments in a day they make sure that the princess isn't delayed from one appointment to the next. I imagine that they might also book appointments, royal duties, interviews, etc. for their respective princesses.

The lady with the short silver/grey hair and glasses is Victoria of Sweden's lady in waiting. Considering her role and the amount of duties she carries out Victoria likely has more than one, but I believe this lady (not sure of her name) is her main lady in waiting.





The lady in the pink dress next to King Constantine is Mary's appointed lady in waiting.

The woman in the picture is NOT Crown Princess Victoria's lady-in-waiting - she is Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg and is the Director of The Royal Information and Press Department AND Crown Princess Victoria's mentor - this is why she is seen around her so much.

I am sorry for the error. This woman seems to be everywhere Victoria went so I made the presumption, which was erroneous of me. Does Victoria have a lady in waiting then?

Yes, ETW (as we call her...) is almost like a shadow to Crown Princess Victoria, so it can't be easy to always know who she is ...

I'm not 100% sure, but as much as I know - Victoria doesn't have a lady-in-waiting yet, I suppose they'll wait to appoint one to her until she starts her own family.

The Queen has three lady-in-waiting's, and Princess Lilian has Elisabeth Palmstierna, Marshall of The Court, as her personal confidant. She used to be Prince Bertil's own Court Marshall, and when he died, she has remained at Princess Lilian's side.

can somebody explain please what is a lady-in-waiting, an aid-de-camps or a chamberlain? they all seem to do nearly the same job, don't they? is there any specific occupation for these categories?

has this type of job changed with the time? did it exist in the medieval times, for example? it sounds to me quite passé...
