The Royal House has announced that HM Queen Margrethe will speak to her citizens this evening at 19:00 at the occasion of her 80th birthday today. The speech will be transmitted live from Fredensborg Castle on both DR1 and TV2, it can also be live streamed at dr.dk select TV/Live.
As her normal birthday celebrations with amongst other the appearance and cheering from the balcony at Amalienborg castle have been cancelled, it seems that the Danish Queen has opted for a digital approach instead.
Today she was celebrated online with Danes singing for her all over the country – transmitted at 12:00 on DR1.
The pictures below are from her last large celebration five years ago when she turned 75.
At this occasion she was also celebrated with a carriage ride through Copenhagen City, something which due to the coronavirus crisis has been cancelled together with a range of other festivities.
