Crown Prince Frederik (wearing the Royal Victorian Order, the Order of the Elephant, and Order of Dannebrog) and Crown Princess Ingrid of Denmark (in the Danish Ruby Parure) attend the Anglo-Danish Society’s Dinner in London on this day in 1939, during a stop over in the United Kingdom after a Tour of the United States on the eve of the Second World War. This was probably the Crown Princess’ last visit to her grandfather, the Duke of Connaught, who passed away during the War, when Denmark was occupied by the Germans. Years later, their daughter, Princess Benedikte attended the Society’s Dinner in 1962, as did Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik in 1974. Queen Margrethe is also going to attend the Dinner in December this year.

It’s funny how then-CP Ingrid and CP Mary have the same smile even though they’re not related.
