The Photo Revealing Queen Mary of Denmark’s Surprising Connection to Superstar Taylor Swift: ‘Completely Fascinated by This’

The life of a superstar musician and Danish queen may seem like worlds apart – but Mary of Denmark and Taylor Swift share one interesting similarity.

During her state visit to Norway earlier this month, the Australian-born European royal styled her hair with accessories from a designer beloved by Swift.

New York designer Ellen Hunter is best known for her ornate handcrafted jewellery – and her hair accessories have become a celebrity favourite over the years.

Queen Mary was photographed wearing the Daphne comb ($113 AUD) at the dome hall at Fredensborg Castle, the Danish royal family‘s spring and autumn residence.

The queen wore the hair accessory for the Armed Forces’ Badge of Honour dinner in September 2023, three years after Swift debuted the famous comb in her Cardigan (cabin in the candlelight) music video back in 2020.

Swift paired the delicate gold comb with a velvet Ralph Lauren dress, while Queen Mary styled the accessory with a sleek black suit and her medals.

Most recently, Queen Mary wore the Jane comb ($248) from Ellen Hunter during the Danish state visit to Norway in May 2024.

The Jane comb uses filigree – a method where the maker twists gold wire together and solders it – which makes its design more intricate.

It has three vintage-inspired designs twirled together atop a 24 karat gold-plated comb – and only three units are in stock at the time of writing.

Queen Mary also dazzled in the Amanda comb ($338) as she posed next to her husband King Frederik X of Denmark and Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr
