Perhaps he's waiting to remarry so he can re-monogram the gate and the furniture. I understand a lot of the furniture has their monogram carved into it.

That must be a little awkward for Joachim, having to look at his former "joint couple" monogram everywhere throughout his home.

Thanks for posting the monogram!

I agree. I know if it were me, I would have thrown everything out the minute the ex walked out the door - wouldn't have even tried to sell it. Come to think of it there was an article stating that Joachim went on a buying spree after the separation, so perhaps he did throw it out(?).

It was stated around the divorce that the joint monogramme on the gates of Schackenborg would stay. (I presume until a potential new wife...)

Page 2 Billie-jo.

You were referring to the Crown Princess' personal monogram were you not?

It's possible. Because who would want to look at that everyday?

And if Joachim never remarries, I guess the monogram will always be on the gates.

It was stated back in the day that they were given quite a few wedding gifts from the danish people, associations, etc., also for Schackenborg. Among those gifts was the gate. Therefore I'd assume both Joachim and Alexandra would be careful to not just throw it out. ;)

Wasn't Mary awarded an Order of the Elephant yet? Does anyone have picture of her coat of arms?

CasiraghiTrio 11-04-2006 09:57 PM

Mary has the Order of the elephant since the year of her wedding, slightly before the wedding. She wears the eight pointed star to gala events, sort of on her left rib cage I guess. She does have a monogram. There is a chart showing all the family's monograms on this thread, page 2 I think. (?)
She does not have the Dannebrog yet, however. Strange no? Isn't the elephant considered the most prestigious?

Yes, CasiraghiTrio :flowers:

The Order of the Elephant is the Danish equivilant to the British Order of the Garter or the Swedish Order of the Seraphim etc.

It is highest Order of Chivalry in the land.

Mary will probably (again, no one can be certain) be made a Knight of the Order of the Dannebrog when Frederik becomes King.

CasiraghiTrio 11-04-2006 10:34 PM

Thanks, MR!

there are pics of Niels Bohr on Getty wearing his Order of the Elephant. He's not royal but I love him and I think it's great to see non-royalty achieve orders of chivalry. I don't care about actors who get it or musical entertainers. I could care less about the Rolling stones and their knighthoods, but someone like Niels bohr made real contributions to the understanding of the universe with his work on quantum mechanics.

One question: Does the Elephant order work the same way as the Garter, the Thistle, etc. in terms of prefixes? Are the Knights given a prefix of "Sir" and the Ladies "Dame"?

I completely agree. A friend of my family is going through a rough divorce and she's got reminders of him all over her house....pictures, things they bought together, souvenirs of trips they took, etc. I can't imagine having to look at reminders of happier days when I feel like happy days are long gone.

that's what i would like to ask--why don't Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix have their own monograms? Prince Christian's monogram was released soon after his birth. Is this a prerogative given to the children/grandchildren, or is it done upon the discretion of the Queen?

politikgirl 08-11-2007 08:54 AM

I can't wait to see Princess Isabella's monogram. :)

agapi 08-11-2007 10:15 AM

Me too! I think Queen Magrehte is working on it right now:princess3:

politikgirl 11-25-2007 09:57 AM

The Queen must be working on Marie's monogram as well. I'm really curious about how that will look, since Marie is another "M" along with Margrethe and Mary.

magnik 11-25-2007 02:30 PM

It will be M with the same crown as Alexandra had. - Principal crown like Joachim has, I think.

Is it Alexandra's new crown, right Countess Alexandra of Frederiksborg
