  1. This is such a cool post! I was delighted to see pictures of all the guests and what they were wearing. I especially liked to see the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. They’re such a discrete couple that they’re often overlooked even though she has splendid jewelry and wears them well. Lovely way to spend a Saturday morning!

  2. Gosh, I forgot to say that the white dress Queen Margrethe wore for her balcony appearance and ride through town was very excellent! It could be worn today and be totally stylish!

    1. Thanks! To find the pictures for the second day, you had to type ‘danish silver wedding’ in Getty! For some reason there were no other ways to find them!
