I agree. She has a certain effortlessness and ease about her.

Actually, he didn't! He commissioned a French painter to do this intimate
portrait in the park of Marselisborg 'palace'.

And that Mikael Melbye and QMII agreed to do so

In 1996 Mikael Melbye was bestowed a knighthood by Her Majesty The Queen Margrethe II. and a peerage in 2006.

That would be the Danish Emerald Parure, part of the crown jewels. The Queen has worn them in recent years, the last time IIRC was at the concert gala for her 70th birthday in April 2010.

According to poster Gabriel on the Royal jewels MB Michael Melbye wanted to paint her in the emereald parure from the Crown jewels. But apparently thoose in charge didnt allow the parure to be abesent from Rosenbrog Castle for a longer time which would have been needed. So he painted the Queen in the pearl parue and changed the Colour of the gown to match the Jewels.

I´ll try to see if I can verify that from the artist himself

He looks as if he can't really believe that his granny and Dad are suddenly such glamorous personalities and has absolutely no idea yet, that he is looking at his own destiny. Or fate...

It looks absolutely aweful.
IMO, Thomas Kluge made the ultimate Queen Margrethe painting. Not flattering, but majestic - in an elizabethan way.
