  1. Oh, “the good old days” 🙂 It’s a shame that most reigning Royal Houses has stopped the tradition with pre-wedding grand galas and that non-reigning Houses normally don’t let photographers in when they have them. I had seen some of these photos of Princess Victoria Louises already on the net, but didn’t know which event they were from. Now I know. Thanks for the great post!

      1. I just looked at some more photos from this event on Getty Images and they even had some photos of the food served at the banquet. Very 70-ties, but as I mentioned elsewhere it is so nice to see coloured photos from this glittering events from the past.
