Queen Margrethe of Denmark to celebrate Golden Jubilee in January

Asia's Tech News Daily

Queen Elizabeth isn’t the only royal celebrating a momentous milestone in 2022.

Queen Margrethe of Denmark will also commemorate a significant jubilee, marking her 50-year reign early in the new year.

Princess Mary‘s mother-in-law will celebrate her Golden Jubilee over four days from January 13-16.

Here’s everything we know so far about the celebrations:

What is the actual date of the Queen’s ascension to the throne?

Princess Margrethe became Queen of Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland after her father King Frederik IX passed away on January 14, 1972.

However, she only became heir-to-the-throne in March, 1953 (the year of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in the UK) after the government passed a changed to The Act of Succession which gave women the right of succession if there was no male heir.

This was subsequently changed again in 2009, allowing the eldest child, regardless of gender, to succeed to the throne.

What is the Golden Jubilee celebrating?

Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee will celebrate her 50 years as the Head of State.

The theme of the year will be based on a motto the monarch adopted when she took to the throne: “God’s help, the love of the people, the strength of Denmark”.

The momentous occasion will be marked in January but there will be events in several places across Denmark throughout the year.

It will be one of the biggest events held in honour of the monarch since the loss of her husband, Prince Henrik, in 2018 – especially given the widow’s 80th birthday celebrations in 2020 were scaled right back amid the pandemic.

What events are planned?

The Queen’s 50th Government Anniversary, as it’s also being called, will include the release of a number of new books, TV interviews and documentaries across the year.

However, the bulk of events announced so far are planned for the days around January 14, 2022:

Monday, January 10: The Queen holds a press conference at Amalienborg.

Thursday, January 13: The Queen opens the exhibition “A Queen’s Jewellery Box” at the Royal Collection, Amalienborg Museum.

Friday, January 14:

  • The Queen and Crown Prince Frederik begin the day with a minister at Christiansborg Castle.
  • The Queen will be joined by her two sons Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim as well as their wives Princess Mary and Princess Marie (respectively) as Danish Parliament celebrates the anniversary.
  • There will be a wreath-laying ceremony at King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid’s grave at Roskilde Cathedral on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of King Frederik IX’s death.

Saturday, January 15:

  • The Queen and the Royal Family will appear on the balcony of Christian IX’s Palace at Amalienborg for the Changing of the Guard at midday
  • The Queen will ride in a carriage to Copenhagen City Hall, where there will be a celebration and official lunch, and where the Queen will appear on the City Hall balcony.
  • The anniversary is marked in the evening with a party performance on the Old Stage in the Royal Theatre. Her Majesty will arrive for the festive evening in a carriage from Amalienborg with an escort of the Gardehus Regiment’s Horse Squadron. The special concert will be broadcast on TV, by DR.

Sunday, January 16:

  • Service of thanksgiving in Our Lady’s Church in Copenhagen.
  • The Queen holds a gala dinner at Christiansborg Castle, where the royal family, foreign guests and Danish dignitaries will attend. The gala celebration will be also broadcast on TV, by TV 2.

Will Princess Mary and Prince Frederik be involved?

Yes, the Crown Prince couple, as they’re often referred to, will be there by Queen Margrethe’s side at a number of events.

Australian-born Princess Mary has already been named in a number of official events across the four-day celebrations.

While heir-to-the-throne Prince Frederik will be by his 81-year-old mother’s side for a great deal of engagements.

It’s not know what (if any) role Mary and Frederik’s four children – Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine – will have in the festivities.

Although, they are all expected to make an appearance on the balcony of Christian IX’s Palace at Amalienborg on January 15.

Who else will be attending?

The official guest list hasn’t been announced yet and it would probably depend on the coronavirus situation over the winter months across the northern hemisphere as to how big that guest list gets.

Queen Margrethe is related to the Duke of Edinburgh, so if Queen Elizabeth went to Denmark for the celebrations, it wouldn’t be a big surprise.

Similarly, the Danish monarch is related to many of the Kings and Queens across Europe.

So Queen Maxima of The Netherlands and King Willem-Alexander, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain, as well as Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden are all likely to receive invites.
