In Danish tradition, Queen Margrethe hosts New Year Receptions. She often wears a fur trimmed navy blue dress with her various honors. She wears it so often, there have been cries for change, but I truly do see this outfit as another piece of Masterpiece Theater.
These photos are from several different years, and yet they could be any year, and I’ve only put out a small sample to view! Put simply, continuity on display.
What say you? Royalty’s main function OR a frugal lady who refuses to bedazzle another brocade gown?
