Mixed Royals and Group Pictures
 
Now, a while ago there was a very succesfull thread in this forum about 'mixed royalty', which meant royals from different royal families in pictures together. I have looked through the entire chit chat forum (twice) but couldn't find it. And now I have my new photobucket, I just have to post new pictures, please join in (please become a bucketeer as well, or imageshack, or whatever, otherwse the lovely posts will be deleted).

Here a picture by Charles Hamarsten of King Carl-Gustavs 40th birthdday (?), his godmother Juliana is seated on the place on honour. Free champagne for those who can identify everybody!

Now here a picture, over 70 years old so no copyrights of spanish royals: I can only identify Queen King Alphonso XIII, the duke of Galleira (BabyBee's future husband) and Queen Maria-Christina. The occassion was probably the wedding of one of Alphonso's sisters?

This is quite the challenge you've posed Marengo!

I will take a stab -- though I most certainly won't get everybody.

Front row (left to right): Carl Philip, Madeline, Victoria

Second row: Queen Silvia and King Carl Philip of Sweden, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands

Third row: Queen Fabiola of Belgium, Queen Sofia of Spain, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands

Fourth row: King Baudoin of Belgium, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Princess Lilian of Sweden(?), Prince Henrik of Denmark

Fifith row: unknown man, Prince Bertil of Sweden(?), Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte and Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg, King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway

And somewhere in the sixth row I can see Princess Benedikte and Prince Richard Berleberg

Emily 01-27-2006 09:26 PM

In the sixth row (behind the unknown man) the first two on the left are the Lichtenstein couple -- is it Gina and Hans Adam?
In the seventh row to the left and then right of the woman in purple I believe are the current Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxemborg.

From the same source: Royalty gathered in Persepolis, Persia (Iran), for the celebrations of the 2500th jubilee of Persia in 1971.

Gina is Hans-Adams mother, but it is his wife Marie-Aglae :) And it is Marie-Therese indeed, very slim still. Champagne for you Emily!

Though as much as Carl-Phhilip resembles his father, it most certainly is Carl-Gustav who is seated next to Queen Sylvia (on her other hand King Olav of Norway btw). Anyway, this + Emily's finds) is about everybody I can identify as well (don't see any of the kings sisters), so join in with the champagne, it is weekend after all!

Hmm, I'll take a stab at Princess Benedikte's wedding group though I don't know a lot of them.

I don't recognize any of the bridal attendants.

First row seated:

guy on left (?), Queen Louise (?) Sweden, King Carl Adolf Sweden, Queen Ingrid Denmark, King Frederik IX Denmark, Princess Benedikte, Prince Richard, the next two ladies appear to be Richard's relatives, King Olav (?) Norway, Queen Mother Elizabeth England, guy on right (?)

Second row standing:

first three on left (?), Prince Henrik Denmark, Crown Princess Margrethe Denmark, King Constantine Greece holding Princess Alexia (?), Queen Anne-Marie Greece, the rest on the right (?)

Third row standing:

first five on left (?), Crown Prince Carl Gustav Sweden, Crown Prince Harald Norway, Prince Claus Netherlands, Crown Princess Beatrix Netherlands, the rest on the right (?)

Fourth row standing:

I can't recognize any of them save the two rather homely looking men fifth and sixth from left. They're Margrethe's cousins, sons of Prince Knud.

Who's the guy between Queen Sonja and Prince Phillip? And who are the ones that are extreme right in the back row standing?
Sorry about my ignorance, but I don't know much about Liechenstein, Luxemburg and stuff like that:o
And usually the big photos are at all the royal weddings, there's usually an official photo of the bride and groom with all their royal guests

Emily 01-28-2006 12:28 AM

Crisinaki - I had to chuckle when I saw your first question -- the guy between Sonja and Phillip is Sonja's husband, King Harald -- but it does look as though he has a white mustache due to the placement of a spot on the photo! The four people on the extreme back right are (from the 4th one in)
Grand Duchess Maria Theresa, her husband Grand Duke Henri, the retired Grand Duke and the - now deceased - retired Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte all of Luxemborg. The man who is the third in from the left is King Albert of Belgium and is the brother of Josephine Charlotte on the far right.

crisiñaki 01-28-2006 12:34 AM

Well at least I know who Albert was;) :D
I got confused with King Harald on this picture, I don't know why but there's something different with him...
I got my doubts even if I kind of know the Grand Dukes, thanks a lot for answering my questions and again sorry for the ignorance:o :o :o :o :o

It seems very typical that in the picture from Princess Benedikte's wedding, that King Olav and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, were seated next to each other - that's how rumours start. The papers were sure they were planning on getting married. ;)

1st row seated starts with Prince Knud of Denmark and Crownprincess Sybilla of Sweden. The two ladies next to Prince Richard are indeed his relatives: his mother and his grandmother.

2nd row standing, 1st 2 on the left: Princess Caroline-Mathilde of Denmark, Princess Margaretha of Denmark, nee Pss of Sweden

the last row starts on the left with swedish princesses Desiree and Margaretha + husbands.
