There is an unusual royal tradition in Denmark — all princesses receive a golden bracelet for their 5th birthday. The tradition started in the times of Ingrid of Sweden. Her mother gave her a golden bracelet for her 5th birthday and soon after, she died, making her daughter an orphan. The young princess cherished the present so much that when she had her own daughter, Ingrid decided to start a tradition and give the same present to her. Since then, all girls of the royal family receive this gift.
