HM King Bhumipol Adulyadej of Thailand is the longest serving monarch in the world followed by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and followed by Brunei's Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah.The King of Thailand has reigned for 60 years,Britain's monarch has reigned for 54 years and Brunei's Head of State and Head of Government has reigned for 25++ years.So Denmark's Queen Margarethe II is neither longest nor one of the longest serving Head of State in the world.

European queens' excluding Britain's Queen Elizabeth II,Denmark's Queen Margarethe II and Dutch's Queen Beatrix do not look royal on official photographs because they are commoners' who married royals.Jordan is not a European country,so HM Queen Rania's royal look should not be counted or taken into account.

Well, the first point is YOUR opinion (had you not known them, you probably wouldn't be able to tell - besides, Queen Sofia is a King's daughter so she's NO commoner) and your second, just pretty petty in my view.

She is daugther of a King and married a King

How true! (My mind was racing so I was only thinking of the reigning couples.)

I really like the portraits in which Queen Margrethe wears the emerald parue. I agree with the other posters that Britain's QEII can be dowdy. QEII is quite short; short women have to be careful in their dress selections so that the style does not overpower them. Queen Margrethe is tall and so can wear many styles well which a shorter woman would do well to avoid. Both queens have fabulous jewelry!

Compared to all European queens',HM Queen Elizabeth II is a well dressed queen.Her wardrobe changes to age,place and occasion.The Queen may not wear stylish attire but she dressess like a royal and she is a very tidy person compared to other queens' who dressess up very untidy and sluggish as well the colours chosen do not match the theme or environment.The Queen is a traditionalist so her wardrobe suites her strong religious believe too.Do check out the following web site where you can take a look at a selection of The Queen's dressess that was worn for different occasions > http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/mi...highlights.asp

Well, that's one of the things I DO admire about Elizabeth - at all times, she IS a Queen and she is always immaculate as long as there is daylight. Somehow, when it comes to evening wear, I feel her advisors let her down and her dresses these days just hang like ornate curtains. She is short as well, so there's the added disadvantage that when her feet show she then begins to look like a midget. But! This is about Margrethe's official portraits and I think we're about to stray...

I am just defending The Queen as I am a loyal fan of the British Royal Family.

I like Queen Margrethe official portraits very much. She always looks very stylish and regal on them. Personally, I rather like her official portraits from now, or some time ago, than the ones from her younger years. She was beatiful and worthy back then, but now she has a really majestic look.

Just my toughts...

Vanesa.

I think The Queen is a very stylish lady--but not fashonable! I love her portraits as she always looks very regal and dramatic,she always looks very comfortable and happy being The Queen.

New to this particular thread, but I was on the Glittering Royal Events Message Board and stumbled across a photo (not the same, but this was the only link I could find)

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...6&d=1062437771

and WOW! What a stunning lady; that is easily one of my favorite gowns of all time; such elegance and grace. I cannot get over the whole effect she radiates!

These three are some of my favorites.

The first is not a traditional portrait, but something about this work really shows who Margrethe really is... relaxed, confident, warm, regal, yet very modern.

This portrait is another one of my favorites. The the lighting and the texture of this image. Strong, yet not as intimidating like most official works.

Finally, this image is nice, but it's predictable .

I have just seen these splendid photos, GT. Thank you for posting them.

I think the Queen of Denmark an absolutely beautiful and elegant woman, and yes, I adore her more colourful and even, sometimes, outre outfits. She has the figure and personality to carry her clothes very well.

I certainly likes both: her more relaxed photos and the formal ones, in which she looks very regal. However, even if the portrait that GlitteringTiaras posted is excellent and shows a very beatiful elderly lady, I can't recognize Queen Margrethes physical features in it.

Vanesa.

Have to say, from the first time, I saw Queen Margrethe she was one of my favourites. She combines two wonderful things: she can look absolutely regal IMO and also naturally on the other hand. And she's a real individualist to me
