In the thread below about Prince Richard, Stig posted comments made over the years by Prince Richard. I was a little surprised by the one regarding Queen Ingrid and her dislike for Germans. Was this based solely on the occupation of Denmark by Germany in WWII? Or did she have a dislike for Germans before WWII? Both of Queen Ingrid's grandmothers were German, as well as her mother in law, and sister in law. Also, Queen Ingrid was one of Prince Richard's Godmothers. Prince Richard himself was half Swedish. His mother and Queen Ingrid were said to be childhood friends. Was Prince Richard exaggerating when he made the comments about Queen Ingrid and Germans?
