Was Queen Louise of Sweden at her wedding ?


I know she died on March 7, 1965 after a emergency surgery and that her last public appearance was at the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in December 1964. I cant find a picture of her at Princess Margaretha's wedding nor at the Nobel Prize Ceremony :( If anyone can provide a picture of her at this wedding or at the Nobel Prize Ceremony of 1964 that would be great.

Yes, queen Louise was present at the wedding of princess Margaretha and John Ambler, as well as the wedding between pricess Désirée and Niclas Silfverschöld, that took place just three weeks before princess Margaretha's wedding. I saw a photo of queen Louise with queen Ingrid in a Swedish magazine at one of the weddings, she was wearing the same dress to both weddings, a silk dress with a bolero in a flower pattern. The article was about the showing of vintage royal dresses that is on disply in Stockholm at the moment.

Her dress was boring but the tiara is too much!

I wonder how long it took for her to get a headache!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: The Haga Princesses, Part 2

Like I said above, I think her dress is boring, but it was a typical wedding dress design of it's time I assume. But truly, what was she thinking wearing that crown?! Just ostentatious.

Why not do some research if you are truly interested in royals. The remark shows a remarkable ignorance. Princess Margaretha is wearing the bridal crown that belongs to the church is which she was married. It is still the custom for many Swedish brides to borrow the bridal crown if one is available at their wedding church. Bridal crowns is a custom dating back to the 16th century.

I'm constantly learning new things on this forum. The bridal crown tradition is indeed an interesting one. I do, however, think that the one worn by Princess Margaretha is hideously ugly. Perhaps it was the height of fashion at the time it was made, but I do not think it goes with the 1964 wedding gown or hairstyle at all.

It is not meant to be a fashion statement. Neither are a mantilla or any other head covering women around the world wear when in a house of worship that may not "go with " the outfit being worn.

This is the second wedding I have learned about where trees were used as part of the decor.

It's not that uncommon in Sweden to use birch trees as decoration at weddings, if not inside the church so much anymore (due to allergies) so at least outside beside the entrance to the church, as far as I know it's been an old tradition here in Sweden.
