King Haakon VII of Norway and Princess Maud of Wales - 1896

Does anyone have a photo of King Haakon VII & Queen Maud? I know her wedding dress inspired Mette-Marit's own gown, but I've never seen any image of Maud's dress... Could someone possibly share it, please?

Here, I think that's what you're looking for :

Well, I think it doesn't quite ressemble Mette-Marit's wedding gown after all... funny, because most magazines (Hello, Hola, etc.) have stated that Mette-Marit's dress was a nearly exact replica of the dress that Queen Maud wore in her wedding to Haakon VII... but I don't actually see much similarity.

Anyway, thank you very much!

Not in order by picture:

Princess Victoria of Wales
Princess Alexandra of Fife (at this point I think she was still Lady Alexandra Duff)
Princess Margaret of Connaught
Princess Patricia of Connaught
Princess Alice of Albany
Princess Helena Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein
Princess Ingeborg of Denmark
Princess Thyra of Denmark

Princess Maud was very happy with the prospect of marrying Prince Charles (Haakon). To her grandmother Queen Victoria, Maud wrote: I wanted to tell you how happy I am and I hope you approve of my choice.
Maud's wedding dress was made in Spitalfields.

Well the alternative would have been to have remained a handmaiden to Mama dearest, Alexandra, like her sister Victoria. Maud was already in her late twenties, old by princess standards of the day. I think she and Carl had plenty in common and he was a cousin, so she knew a lot about him anyway.

Apparently she was rather bored with life in Denmark, however. Healthwise Maud was unsuited to those long Scandinavian winters. She was rather delicate like all Alexandra's children (most were born prematurely, irritating Queen Victoria who liked to be in at the birth of grandchildren if possible.) Maud was very thin and delicate looking. Her waist was one of the smallest I've ever seen. A grapefruit would have seemed huge next to it.
