However, the Crown Prince Family will join Queen Margrethe II for their annual family Christmas at Marselisborg Palace, when she takes up residence from 20 December 2019.
Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and their two children, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena will also participate in the festivities.
Queen Margrethe started the annual tradition upon her accession in 1972.
The Royal Stables (De Kongelige Stalde) was built in 1740 and currently houses 11 white horses which are mainly used for official events, including state visits, New Year’s Levees, ambassador receptions, summer trips and birthdays.
