Queen Margrethe II has passed on a special request regarding her forthcoming 80th birthday on 16 April 2020.
Celebrations for Queen Margrethe’s birthday were cancelled in March due to the coronavirus pandemic in Denmark.
Every year, Queen Margrethe receives flowers from well-wishers both near and far on her birthday.
However, this year, Queen Margrethe is asking people to send a bouquet to one of the many older citizens instead, especially someone who is going through a difficult time right now.
According to the Royal Danish House, another tradition has changed this year as well-wishers would arrive at the Det Gule Palæ (The Yellow Palace), which is next door to Amalienborg, to write congratulatory messages in a register.
However, from Tuesday, 14 April, a contributions register will be set up on the Royal Daish House’s official website — www.kongehuset.dk — where well-wishers can send their best wishes or congratulations to Queen Margrethe.
