  1. Great post as always! I was wondering if you had a larger version of the photo where one can see the Royal ladies in a line and King Gustav VI Adolph walking to the right and immediately to the right we can see Princess Margretha (of Denmark) talking to another lady? It would be great to see her more clearly. She seems to be wearing Pearl Drop earrings in addition to the Floral tiara (which you mentioned in your post).
