HRH Princess Benedikte of Denmark and HH Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg
February 3, 1968
Much like the wedding of younger child Princess Margriet we recently looked at, the timing of Princess Benedikte's wedding put it directly in the shadow of the wedding of her older sister, the future queen. Benedikte's engagement to Prince Richard was announced a few months before the wedding of Margrethe and Henrik, and the wedding was held several months after. It was a lower key affair, held in the Chapel of Fredensborg Palace, but the dress was just as grand.
Margrethe and Anne-Marie. (Later, he would also design wedding gowns for Benedikte's daughter Alexandra and another Princess Alexandra too.)
