Daisy is part of Nathalie's names? Is she called that as a nick-name? If so, the daisies on the gown would make more sense.
I believe her aunt, the Queen M, followed through with a daisy motif topper as well.

Her full name is Nathalie Xenia Margareta Benedikte so no Daisy in there

Margareta (Margurite) is Daisy in French.

Indeed! Have never seen Nathalie look so stunning as in the first black and white picture, no. 3.

Those pics are a treat! Lovely group photo, the family members must have been asked to wear either blue or dusty pink.
The picture of Nathalie laughing at Alexander is my favourite, it shows the connection between them.

Erm no ... Margareta is Swedish for Margaret/Margrethe/Margurite/Margarita etc. etc.

It refers to Nathalies maternal great grandmother and her paternal grand mother, who was Swedish born Magareta Fouch'e d'Otrante.

The black/white of Nathalie looking to her right is a lot like a photo from her sisters wedding...

EDIT: I can´t find that photo, but I know it´s out there somewhere...

Um, yes. In Latin the name means "pearl" but in Spanish the name means "Daisy." The names you listed above are variations of the spelling depending on the country/language.

The first Black & White photo is stunning (even if the gown isn't).

Well, I was only mentioning that Margareta was Swedish for Margaret etc.etc. ! I'm not objecting to the 'pet derivate' Daisy. I get the impression that 'Daisy' is mainly used in the Anglophone world, but correct me if I'm wrong !

I have to say that for someone I never thought of as very attractive --- Nathalie made for one beautiful bride. The photographs are exquisite and she looked absolutely lovely!

Nathalie's gown grows on me, I think it's an elegant and regal design! The lace top is a bit too coarse for my taste and it's underlined by the beigy colour! I'm no expert but it looks like guipure lace, which is often on the coarse side, like something crocheted! Queen Magrethe has often used guipure lace for her less formal gowns, just look at the white top she wearing in Berleburg.
I'm not suggesting that this unusual starry-crochety lace was a gift from QM, but it could be a gift from someone else dear to Nathalie. That's the only reason for including it on the dress IMHO.
Wahtever that lace is, it's not the usual Henrik Hviid style! The A-line and the embroidered details is typical Hviid but not the 'fish net' top!

I agree - I didn't care for the contrast of beige lace on top and the white/cream of the gown, but overall, she was a beautiful bride and I her dress was beautiful on her.

Can anyone provide a closeup of the bridal couple's monogram that was on the train?

Thanking in advance!

She does have the Queen's name in there which is where, I guess, my assumption had come from. Thanks for the facts.
