Princess Benedikte of Denmark

When Princess Benedikte of Denmark
married Prince Richard zu Sayn-
Wittenstien-Burleburg, she wore
her grandmotherís diamond and platinum
tiara. The tiara was a gift from the
Khedive of Egypt to Princess Margaret of
Connaught. The veil is also a family
heirloom. The ensemble was also worn by
her sisters Anne-Marie and Margrethe before
her. It was later worn by her daughter
Alexandra, and her niece Alexia for their
weddings. She also wore a pair of pearl
studded earrings.
Benedikte wore a white silk gown.
The sleeves were wrist length and
her neckline was not to far from the
neck. The dress had no bodice. The full
length skirt flared slightly from the waist.
The dress had two bows located at the waist
line. It looks as though they are used as a
separator between the supper half of the
dress and the skirt.

The train of the dress was of the
same material the dress was made of.
The train was attached at the
shoulders rather than the waist.

The Princess carried a bouquet of
white flowers with green leaves.
