I deleted the following as unnecessary detail about the life of a non-major person. If someone feels that it's worth including in the article, please go ahead and put it back:

no surname, please[edit]

Question: Isn't Ingrid scond cousin to the Prince of Wales (Edw VIII)? her mother and George V were first cousins, both grandchildren of Queen Victoria.

per convention, kings and queens do not have a surname. Being a Mrs von Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg is subsumed totally under of being HRH crown princess of Denmark. I shuld have guessed that it was the infamous Mowens who added that irrelevant and ridiculous piece of information. 217.140.193.123 21:49, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

They do have a surname. They just don't use them. Wikipedia correctly puts in the surname as it is a fact worth mentioning. FearÉIREANNFlag of Ireland.svg(talk) 22:54, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Actually, you are wrong re queen-consorts of Denmark. King Frederick IX did not have an official surname. And certainly his wife did not take his surname, even if he had one.

This trend here in Wikipedia where married surnames have been added to royals all and sundry, is ridiculous.

As she did not have a married surname, the only info re it would be that her husband belonged to the House of S-H-S-G. But even that belongs better to the article about the husband himself.

Could you please give evidence that the queen consort of Denmark legally had a married surname? evidence such as Danish register of residents? 217.140.193.123 20:53, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)

queen ingrid[edit]

Would anyone know if Queen Ingrid came to New Zealand around 1963, namely the North Island. Do you know if she visited a Northland Maternity Hospital: Kawakawa Hospital, she spoke to my mother whilst she was there?

During the WWII occupation[edit]

I do not remember were I have read this, so I can not insert the information, but I have read about Ingrid's great importance regarding her conduct during the occupation, as is already pointed out in the article: it was said, that she was so adamant not to socialize with the occupation forces, that she did not speak one word to one German during the entire war and occupation - something the royal couple and her own husband was forced to do at least sometimes. This gave her great popularity. If someone have a reference, then it should be added! --85.226.44.238 (talk) 17:04, 2 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cleptomania?[edit]

I must take issue with the edit summary comment here. This was not necessarily vandalism.

Many royal ladies and gentlemen have been accused of (though to my knowledge never prosecuted for) petty theft or cleptomania in shops they frequent in their own countries, Ingrid's sister-in-law Princess Lilian and stepmother Queen Louise among them. One of the ladies or a court functionary (I don't remember who now) was asked about this a few decades ago and explained that the reason it happens - always quite openly and noticeably - is an assumption that any shop owner knows where to send an invoice and that royalty traditionally never carries cash or credit cards. Shop clerks, never owners, are the people known to start gossip about cleptomania, as far as I've seen and heard, especially those who were not attentive enough to make a note of what was taken. Thus, it's perfectly possible that Queen Ingrid has had such a reputation, without any crime ever being intended. SergeWoodzing (talk) 20:00, 2 March 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Title when husband reigned[edit]

Danes! Correct me if I'm wrong: Ingrid was officially called Danmarks Dronning (the Queen of Denmark) during her husband's reign. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 21:39, 29 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@SergeWoodzing: That's correct. You become a queen if you marry a king, but only a prince if you marry a queen. The name of the Danish article is Dronning Ingrid (Dronning means queen). Christian75 (talk) 12:26, 29 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! Did her title change after she was widowed? --SergeWoodzing (talk) 15:25, 29 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SergeWoodzing: She became an enkedronning (literal widow queen) but the public (and news) still called her (just) "queen". I did a search and found an article about Crown Princess Mary[1]. it says that if she become a "window queen" she would still retain her rank of majesty and you still have to adress her as "Your Majesty".
