Hofdame Mystery Hour – Find the Common Element (Updated with Answer!)

Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee celebrations are rapidly approaching, so let’s dig into her life a bit. There is a common element in all these photos of Daisy. See if you can identify it.

Hint: We’ve discussed it here on the blog several times. AND Daisy isn’t the only royal that it applies to.

****Once you figure it out, don’t say what it is, just drop a photo in the comments with the same theme. *****

We’ll circle back later tonight with the answer. If you can’t figure it out, just enjoy the photo ride below.

Answer

If you look closely at the photos, the Princess Margaret bracelet tradition – which started with Princess Margaret of Connaught (or perhaps with her mother) – shows up in all of them. The balcony photo is a bit tricky because while the bracelet clearly shows up on Isabella, you have to blow up the photo to see it on Daisy. For those who want a refresher on the entire story, see our blog post here.

The short story is: Princess Margaret of Connaught and Princess Patricia of Connaught wore matching simple gold bracelets (possibly gifts from their mother Princess Louise Margaret, wife of Prince Arthur and daughter-in-law of Queen Victoria). Princess Margaret, who later married the Crown Prince of Sweden, gave her own daughter, Ingrid, the same type of bracelet. Since then, all female descendants of Ingrid are gifted this gold bracelet at age five. At some point, the child’s version is swapped out for an adult bracelet.

Princess Margaret and the bracelet that started it all.
