Today’s Date: Queen ties the knot
Queen Magrethe II married Count Henri de Laboured de Monpezat on this day in 1967 at Holmen Church.
The princess wore an ivory silk gown made by royal couturier Jørgen Bender with a veil of Irish lace.
The couple first met in London in 1965 whilst Margrethe was studying at the London School of Economics.
Her husband’s name was Danified, changing Henri to Henrik. When Margrethe acceded to the throne in 1972, he became prince consort.
