Re: Usage of the Crown Jewels (Denmark)
Actually i ready somewhere that it not so welcome when the Jewels are used and for that reason HM wore for an official painting not the emeralds from the Crown Jewels but the pearl Parure. In the painting she wear a green gown worn first for her 70th birthday celebrations and later for CP Victoria's Wedding which would have matched perfect with the emeralds. So the gown was painted in silver instead of green
See text in the official website which describes them as being " The collection of Crown Jewels for use by the reigning Queen ". It is reasonable to suspect that a request from Queen Margrethe to use any of the jewels should be taken as a command. A member of her household probably is the appointed person to communicate these requests with Rosenborg's officials. I would expect for security and logistical reasons that these requests are made well in advance of the date the jewels are to be worn. Queen Margrethe said in a documentary that she tries to not keep them gone for long. https://www.kongernessamling.dk/en/rosenborg/room/the-treasury-section-3/
