Javist!

I found a close-up of Pcs. Ingrid on her wedding day; it's in a book and I have no scanner I'm afraid, but the lace looked similar to that of Mary's veil . I wrote earlier that I believed it to be the 1905-veil of Margaret/Margaretha. But - on second thought: I remember reading something about the deceased Margaretha being covered (but no necessarily buried) with the veil. -If this is correct, I wonder whether it was the same veil??

I never heard about that.

I read in a book about Margaretha, called Darling Daisy, that she was covered with the veil before she was buried. I think it was during some sort of lit-de-parade. She was buried in her wedding dress, all in accordance with her own wishes. The veil was later given to Princess Ingrid, who wore it with her Swedish court dress and then at her wedding. More info about it is in the book about the Danish royal jewels by Bjarne Steen Jensen.

Thanks Hanna Regina! I'll check Bjarne Steen Jensen's book, which includes the close-up photo of Princess Ingrid as a bride!

Because of their morganatic descent many of the European families looked down on the Battenbergs as socially inferior.
It is kind of interesting that both of Gustaf VI Adolf's spouses were descendants of Queen Victoria. Crown Princess Margareta was the daughter of Queen Victoria's seventh child, The Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn. Queen Louise's mother, Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine was Victoria's granddaughter by Victoria's third child, The Princess Alice. Queen Louise and her stepchildren were thus Queen Victoria's great-grandchildren.

I tried to find books about Daisy, but couldn't find any. Are there any in print?

There is extensive conversation about the veil in the Danish documentary: Royal Jewels. You can see the :60 minute program on You Tube. It's quite interesting.

When Prince Gustaf Adolf proposed to Princess Margaret of Connaught in 1905, did not King Edward VII of England have to approve of the forthcoming marriage?

How well did Crown Princess Margaret get along with her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria?

LadyFinn, Thank you for the two photo postcards. The Crown Princess was an exceedingly lovely lady.

Victoria seems to have not been that easy to get along with, but I don't remember hearing about anything bad going on between her and Margareta. (Then again, Victoria spent a lot of time abroad, so I guess they didn't see each other that much.) But her other daughter-in-law, Maria Pavlovna, hated her in-laws and went back to Russia, even leaving her son Lennart behind.

Here, at the interview of queen Silvia, from 0.40, you can see this breathtaking painting "live". Now the painting is at the Royal Palace.

From the Facebook of the Royal Armoury:
Today's date: May 1, 1920 at 14 died Crown Princess Margareta, or Daisy as she was called in the family, at the Royal Palace. She was 38 years old and was expecting her sixth child. She had been ill several times during the winter. On April 30, she had a high fever and suffered a general blood poisoning and heart failure. When Prime Minister Hjalmar Branting had finished his May Day speech, he hurried to the castle. There was organized a so-called blind cabinet meeting without the ruler's presence. All the ministers were deeply stirred and Branting said: "Now the sunbeam in the Royal Palace has gone." Few objects reminiscent of Margaret are saved in the Royal Armoury. Like her English rank crown. She was the daughter of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Queen Victoria of Great Britain was her grandmother. Rank crown - which is showed - she wore when her uncle Edward VII's coronation in 1902.
