I know... But that´s not the point. If the norwegian Royals would follow the danish way, the Queen, Martha Louise and Astrid wouldn´t have had a new order after King Harald succeeded and Mette-Marit would have been the 1st one to have been made the new RFO.

But why Queen Ingrid or Princess Benedikte didn´t wear a Margrethe II RF order is beyond me.

A comparision: Prcss Astrid of Norway had King Haakons order, her father´s King Olav V. and then added her brother´s, Harald, in 1991.

I really do appreciate the british way: A new reign requires a new RFO for all royal ladies of the House.


Queen Anne Marie wears her Royal Family Decoration of King Frederick* when she's in Denmark as first and foremost she's a Danish princess

In Sweden, Norway and Denmark they aren't orders but they're called the 'Royal Decoration of King/Queen (name)' as effectively it isn't really an order unlike how in the UK, almost every decoration is an order which is silly

It might be something recently awarded. I dont remember Mette-Marit with it

Maybe when MM attended the Queen's birthday in 2015?
Yesterday, at Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday gala dinner, Crown Princess Mette Marit was seen for the first time with the Order of the Elephant. So, the website of the Norwegian Royal Court wasn't wrong, but it still unknown when she received it.

It is effectively just a memento to show attachment to the Sovereign.
