Queen Ingrid as a role modell
Interesting, I did not know that about Queen Sonja. However, I do remember reading (perhaps on this message board) that Queen Ingrid was close to the daughters of Princess Ingeborg. So it makes sense that she would want to help the daughter in law of Crown Princess Martha. Also, the fact that her daughter Queen Margrethe is close to Queen Sonja.
You have to remember that there wasn't many other senior female Royals in Scandinavia in the 70's and 80's. Crown Princess Märtha died in 1954, Princess Sibylla died in 1972, Queen Louise died in 1965.
So Queen Ingrid became a very important female role modell for all three current Scandinavian Queens :-)
