Queen Margrethe II chaired a Council of State at Christianborg Palace on Wednesday, 7 October 2020.
The Council of State is traditionally held the day after the opening of the Folketing, this time using the larger Table Hall, to ensure necessary space and distance between all participants.
Council of State Meetings are usually held in the State Hall.
Crown Prince Frederik also attended the meeting with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and seventeen of the 20 cabinet ministers.
These Councils of State usually meet about six times per year to ratify bills passed by the Folketing and present bills to Queen Margrethe which will be presented in the parliament.
Sometimes additional meetings are called for Queen Margrethe to attend to urgent matters so they are resubmitted and subsequently confirmed at the next Council of State.
