Margaretha with her parents and sister Martha after the War :



Click picture for larger view.

Interestingly, as Margaretha here seems younger than her younger sister by two years. Also interesting to imagine what appearance would then have had the late Queen Astrid had she lived, knowing how the two sisters Martha and Astrid looked alike physically.

Princess Axel with her parents and Crown Princess Louise of Sweden :



I wonder how the two women agreed that were substantially the same generation.

It is easier since Louise was only a distant cousin.

Indeed. Princess Margaretha here seems to wear a mink coat. The fashion mink coat will rage in the post-war years, especially in the years 50-60.

Indeed...Especially the cold in Scandinavia is not easy to bear with a warm coat.

Princess Axel with her sisters Astrid and Martha and during a family reunion in 1934 or 1935 :



In fact, how to write the name of the Princess in Danish, Margareta or Margaretha, knowing that there were three margareth in the family and it had to tell them apart ? Thanks in advance.

I had originally put this notice in the Upcoming Books for 2013 but it seems fitting here as well:

AXEL & MARGARETHA - A Royal Couple by Randi Buchwaldt

HE was a Prince of Denmark, a grandson of Christian IX but also an officer in the Danish Navy and managing director of the (Danish) East Asian Company, board member of Scandinavian Airlines and Danish representative in the International Olympic Committee.SHE was born a Princess of Sweden, the sister of Queen Astrid of Belgium and Crown Princess Märtha of Norway, and was the beloved aunt of many European Royals. Here is yet another pictorial biography of two fascinating Royal personalities, today largely forgotten ...

AXEL & MARGARETHA
A Royal Couple
2013, ca 96 pages, hardbound
richly illustrated [May 2013]
