Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary accompanied Queen Margrethe to see the new portrait, which coincides with a new exhibition, The Faces of the Queen.

Artist Niels Strøbek created the new portrait of the Queen as a private person under an open starry sky without any royal insignia, surrounded by a simple pearwood frame, adorned with the royal crown.

Niels Strøbek has previously painted four portraits of Queen Margrethe within 45 years.

Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary had a tour of the exhibition after the unveiling.
