I like your expression about  Ingeborg, Alicky! "Sweet,ELFIN look"...Really,the very exact impression  of Ingeborg's face   in her later years. :)
She is calmness and tenderness itself in many photoes.

Prince Carl (1861-1951) was the second son of king Oscar II of Sweden and his wife queen Sophie born a princess of Nassau. His elder brother became later king Gustav V in 1907. He was Duke of Vestrogothia and in 1898, he married Princess Ingeborg of Denmark (1878-1958), one of the daughters of king Frederick VIII of Denmark.

They had three daughters : princesses Margaretha (1899-1977), Martha (1901-1954) and Astrid (1905-1935). In 1911, was born their only son, the little Prince Carl.

All the girls selected a bride from a continental royal family. Margaretha married her cousin prince Axel of Denmark in 1919. Princess Martha spoused, ten years later, crown prince Olav of Norway and Astrid married Crown Prince Leopold of Belgium in 1926. She became Queen of the Belgians in 1934.

But Martha became never Queen because she died of a cancer in 1954, and Astrid died in a tragically car accident in 1935, one year only after her accession.

Of their four childs, two only survived them : Margaretha, died in 1977, and Carl, died in 2003.

The three daughters of Prince and Princess Carl of Sweden :


Of these Princesses, who was the prettiest ?

I think it's Margareta because she had fine and regular features and more natural and charm. Also, she seemed more younger than her sisters at same age.

Martha had a sad and severe beauty : she was less often smiling.

As to Astrid, she was not a perfect beauty but had lot of radiance and charism.

In fact, the sisters were complementaries beauties. But, what is your opinion ?

 I think she had the sweetest features (among her sisters ) and somewhat heavenly look.
