Re: Queen Margrethe wearing the crown jewels

As Christian said, Queen Louise in the portrait apparently combines the emerald tiara which belongs to the Danish crown jewels with the Danish crown diamonds. |
I don't know if Queen Margrethe has ever chosen to wear that combination?
Queen Margrethe wearing the emerald tiara:
