Thank you JessRulz once again for the information You are being quite helpfull. It's interesting to know that The Order is quite an old one and dates back to 1693!!. I hope I'm not bothering with my many questions, but in the article that you have referred to by the link, it was mentioned that HRH The Prince Consort (that is Prince Henrik) is Chancellor of the Order. Does that mean that HRH has the authority to decide to whom it would be granted? Or is it in the authority of HM The Queen as she is the Sovereign of the Order?
I was happy to find a close picture of the Order of the Elephant, but unfortunately I couldn't see a picture of the Order of Dannebrog (I hope I spelled the later correctly). Thanks

Margrethe is the one who decides who gets all the Danish orders, not Henrik

I think that it depends on the order. I know that the Danish Order of the Elephant states that upon their death, the member's order (and all artifacts related to it) are to be returned. I am not sure about the other orders.

In Belgium , the Leopold'sash was 10 cm for men and woman.
Queen Paola changed and did smaller ones for women.
Queen Fabiola never wears sashes , Queen Paola well but she never wears the highest Belgian sash. For officiel visits she wears the one she received.

They were Republic of Greece orders and being non-Royal have been moved to Members' Corner, here.
The photos, being subject to copyright, have been removed and replaced with url links.

It is not easy for ladies to wear sashes now .. I saw a lot of pictures of Princesses wearing badly their sashes ..Of course they don't have a lady in waiting helping them.

Clicking on the links in that post produces exactly the same size photos as those originally posted, ie small.
If they were small when posted, they will be equally small when opening the link.

Does anyone know what order GD Henri is wearing? It was National Day 2007. I thought for National Day they (Henri and Guillaume) wore the Luxembourg order (the gold sash).

The Grand Duke is wearing the Order of the Oak Crown in that picture. It is one of 4 Luxembourg orders.

The golden sash, which you mention, that he typically wears is the Order of the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau and is actually shared with The Queen of the Netherlands where it is a house order while in Luxembourg it is a national order and the highest order of the Grand Duchy.

ODM of Luxembourg: Order of the Oak Crown

Henri is most likely wearing the Order of the Oak Crown because it is only awarded on The Grand Duke's Official Birthday which is what the celebration of "National Day" really is in Luxembourg. The date will always June 23 irregardless of The Grand Duke's actual birthday. He was likely wearing the order at this particular point in the day in connection with the annual awarding of the order.

He may also have worn the Order of Merit of of The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg which is red with blue trim at some point, because it is also only awarded on National Day a.k.a The Grand Duke's Official Birthday. At other points in the day he would have returned to wearing the Gold Lion of the House of Nassau. He is usually not pictured with the other orders because they are not awarded every year.
