A new official gala portrait of Queen Margrethe II was released in Denmark on Monday, 21 September 2020.
Photographer, Per Morten Abrahamsen, took the new portrait of Queen Margrethe in the Dome Hall at Fredensborg Palace during the summer of 2020, to mark her 80th Birthday on 16 April.
This portrait replaces the previous official gala portrait from 2012.
The sovereign’s portrait is traditionally changed at regular intervals, coinciding with special events, anniversaries or round birthdays.
Queen Margrethe wears her regalia with the sash and brooch of Order of the Elephant, Denmark’s highest-ranking order of chivalry, her father King Frederik IX’s portrait surrounded by diamonds, and the Grand Commander’s Cross of the Order of Dannebrog.
The Queen wears her Perlepoire set consisting of a diadem, necklace, earrings and brooch set with precious stones.
Her Majesty has worn the set in several official gala portraits in the past.
