Yes I agree with you. However I wonder what photo she put on her Danish passport when she went on exile.  :-\

I don't think that sher used those photos for any passport, she is very young on them for say that she could use them on her time of exhile, thanks for posting, they're totally new for me

It's a very beautiful one! Was it made for commemorate AIII's death? (For the year it has written below) or was a simply coincidence?
