Queen Silvia, so charming.
Queen Margrethe tearing up a bit talking about the Daisy brooch.
Princess Benedikte wearing the Ruby tiara as a child.
Lots of old family footage.
A good understanding of the Danish jewels we are all now so familiar with, and their history.
Interesting history of the Swedish cameo tiara.
The wedding veil that Margrethe, Benedikte, Anne-Marie and Mary wore … worn in their predecessor’s coffin, but not to be buried with her.

 
Princess Ingrid of Sweden brougt some of her late Mother's jewels to Denmark when she married the Crown Prince.
So much fascinating detail in this documentary marie-olivia about so many pieces travelling from nation to nation through inheritance.
I didn’t know Mary’s ruby tiara had been changed so much before Mary changed it.
Loved Margrethe’s story about her mother Ingrid wearing those very old pearls in secret under her clothing to bring back their lustre … pearls need skin contact … before bringing them out in public.
The old home movies and photos were interesting to see.
Poor Sweden being labelled as having two winters, a white one and a green one!

Nowadays with climate change it's even worse. All we have now is one long constant autumn sprinkled with some sun and some snow.

That sounds awful JR76.

I did find your Queen … yes it’s an old documentary … so charming when she was talking, and what an interesting background she has.
