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.

Watching the New Years Banquet tonight, it came across me that there is one vacancy as Grand Commander of the Order of the Dannebrog. The number is limited to eight at the time, but since the death of Prince Henrik there is only seven Grand Commanders. I wonder if the vacancy is to be replaced soon, and by whom. In my opinion the only likely candidate is Crown Princess Mary. The question is who likely it is, and/or when in that case?

Your message peeked my interest. Other than Henrik (who received it after his wife's ascension to the throne) all other recipients are 'born royal'. In the first paragraph on Wikipedia it states that only those of 'princely origin' might become Grand Commanders.

Instead of Crown princess Mary I could see them reserve this 8th spot for prince Christian to be given to him on his 18th birthday. Although Frederik and Joachim got theirs much later (not too long after queen Ingrid passed away - clearly Margrethe didn't want to keep Joachim waiting too long after his elder brother became GC). Alternatively, queen Anne Marie could be granted this honour; her husband was appointed the order in 1964 6 days after becoming king of Greece; her eldest sister upon ascending the throne and her other sister upon her 25th wedding anniversary but Anne Marie herself is still without the order. As queen Margrethe twice used her birthday to hand out this order (both to her husband and youngest son), she might see her 80th birthday as a great occasion to do so again - unless she plans to hand it to prince Christian; in that case I expect her to wait until he turns 18.

In either scenario, Mary could get hers soon after becoming queen - so far, neither queen Ingrid nor prince Henrik got their before their spouse was the Sovereign and, therefore, Master of the order. So, I expect queen Margrethe to let king Frederik have the honour to bestow it upon his wife.

The current Grand Commanders:
Quote:
Her Majesty Margrethe II, Queen of Denmark, Master of the Order (14 January 1972)
His Majesty Constantine II, King of the Hellenes (12 March 1964)
His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden (10 October 1975)
His Majesty Harald V, King of Norway (28 October 1991)
Her Royal Highness Benedikte, Princess of Denmark (27 January 1993)
His Royal Highness Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark (1 January 2004)
His Royal Highness Joachim, Prince of Denmark (16 April 2004)

The current Grand Commanders:
Prince Christian is indeed a good candidate. However, both Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim received the Order in 2004, on January 1st and April 16th respectively.

The paragraph on 'princely origin' could also be interpreted as Royals overall, as Prince Henrik wasn't born a royal either, so have a hard time believing that is a criteria.

I would like to see Anne-Marie get it when her husband and sister have been awarded the honour. Plenty of time for Christian to be awarded the order, sadly within the next 10 years or so I’m sure spaces will become available.

One advantage of Mary not (yet) having the order, is that it would ruin her look somewhat - it's rather crowded on Benedikte.
