Question....Shouldn't King Frederik be wearing his Swedish order with his military uniform?

I believe that King Frederik is wearing the beast star of the Order of the Seraphim on his uniform in addition to the stars of the Order of the Elephant and Order of the Dannebrog.  I've never seen him wear an order sash with this particular uniform.

Thanks Izzieq!:rose:


I was just coming back to say that I saw him wearing the star of the Swedish order which was very prominently displayed as the first star on his military uniform.


By the way...well done King Frederik on his speech! Fantastic performance! :clap::clap:


Also saw Queen Mary matching King Frederik's military colors in navy and white!


The SVT coverage was slightly better indoors!

I agree..underwhelming. She can do so much better. 


First state visit...was looking for a new outfit with color especially with Queen Silvia  in red and Crown Princess  Victoria  in the pink/rose.

Mary 'disappears' IMO.

Also, don't like the hat.


But, she looks appropriate enough.
