I see that one of the shields is the Berleburg's; is the other from her swedish Family?

The Fürstin was from the Fouché d'Otrante family so I would guess it's their Coat of Arms.

The Order of the Dannebrog

I'd like to add a little and to ask a couple of questions.

The Order of the Dannebrog was opened to women in 1958, AFAIK. I'm not sure whether there were some exceptions for women of royal origin prior to that date.

Are there any foreign Grand Commanders of the Order of Dannebrog?

By the way, has someone been awarded both the Order of Dannebrog and the Order of the Elephant simultaneously, i.e. receiving two Danish orders of chivalry on the same day?

It was the Order of the Elephant that was opened to females in 1958. The Order of the Dannebrog was opened to females in 1951.

King Harald of Norway is a Grand Commander of the Order of the Dannebrog.

Thank you for the info, it seems I've mixed the two orders up. :-)

As an example: when the Queen is doing 'private' correspondence she would use paper with her 'private' monogram. When she is writing as the Queen of Denmark she would use the Queen's monogram. It is to differentiate the two roles through the use of symbols. The monograms could also possibly be used on certain items to show the difference between personal and Crown ownership, although this would be a murky area.

Thank you so much for posting those monograms! I loved that! Did Margarethe design each and everyone of them?

I can't wait to see Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix, and Prince Christian's monograms when they get older. The monograms are fascinating to me.

The order of the Elephant is the highest danish order, and mostly given to foreign heads of state. Mærsk McKinney Møller (owner of the shippingcompany mærsk) is the onbly dane in 50 years to recieve it, the last one before him was Niels Bohr (the physicist).
I actually have no idea why it's an elephant. The order is about 500 years old, and my best guess is that the elephant was a very strange animal, but known for it's strenght, therefore it was a good symbol.

Actually i think the flower is an Edelweiss because its a very popular flower in Austria where Alexandras mother is from.

Crown Princess Mary's Coat of Arms

I wonder if Mary has got her own coat of arms. Unfortunately, the Danish royals seem not to use their personal arms that often: for instance, the only time I got to see Princess Alexandra's was in a photo taken of Frederiksborg Castle's Chapel, where all knights and ladies of the Order of the Elephant have their arms displayed in a shield with their name, coat of arms and the date they became members of the order.


Perhaps somebody has visited the castle recently and noticed the CP's shield?

On the Official web site of the Crown Prince Couple, it says that they created an official standard for the King, Queen and the Regent. Does anyone have a clue of how the Regent Standard looks like?

Did Joachim and Alexandra have a joint monogram (like Frederik & Mary's) when they were married? If so, does anyone have a picture of it?

Here's Joachim and Alexandra's joint monogram:


(I'm guessing it was on the official site of the Danish monarchy but was taken off after the divorce)

Here's their monogram as part of a gate (Does anybody know what palace/castle/home that is? Is the gate still like that?)

soCal Girl - I'm sure it must be Schackenborg Castle; the castle that was given/bought for Joachim when he was a boy and where he lives now. I haven't seen pictures of the gate recently so I don't know whether it has been changed.

Thanks for the answer, UserDane. I would hope the gate is changed since the monogram no longer exists in a sense.
