Fredensborg is now home to both the Danish Queen and the Crown Prince Family as the Crown Prince family moved to their residence at Kancellihuset. The house was built in 1731 and

lies adjacent to the main castle. It was the home of Crown Prince Frederik’s grandmother, Queen Ingrid, for many years.

In 2004, Kancellihuset was extensively renovated and became the first home of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary until 2010, when they moved into their palace at Amalienborg.

Kancellihuset has its own large private garden with swimming pool, an outdoor riding area was added last year to Fredensborg Castle’s outdoor facilities, enabling the family to continue with their riding activities.

The house was the first home of Prince Christian and Princess Isabella and the family has used the house frequently for shorter periods of time since their move to Amalienborg in 2010, they always  expressed a wish to use it more and for longer periods of time especially during the warm season.

The royal house has not given any end date to their stay, but last year the Crown Prince family moved back to their winterhome at Amalienborg on the 1 October.

Fredensborg Castle is already home to the Danish Queen during the summer period, however, despite the royal presence, the park remains open to the public and  the church is open for Sunday service to the citizens of Fredensborg.

The move means that the crown prince couple’s flag will not be flying from their palace at Amalienborg but from their residence in Fredensborg.
