Princess Benedikte’s Silver Anniversary Gala, 1993

Happy 50th Anniversary to Princess Benedikte of Denmark and the late Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg! While there are no events planned today, we are taking a look at the couple’s lavish Silver Wedding Anniversary Gala hosted by Queen Ingrid at Christiansborg Palace on this day in 1993.

Queen Ingrid (wearing the Danish Ruby Parure) hosted a spectacular Gala Dinner for Prince Richard and Princess Benedikte (glittering in the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg Fringe Tiara) at Christiansborg Palace, during which the Prince delivered a hilarious speech, followed by a dance surrounded by friends and relatives, including Queen Margrethe (in the Floral Aigrette Tiara and her Antique Diamond Parure) and Prince Henrik, King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece (wearing the Greek Emerald Tiara) and members of the Danish Nobility.
