Queen Margrethe II of Denmark is currently enjoying her summer break at Graraston Palace with her sisters, Princess Benedikte and Queen Anne Marie of Greece.
The three sisters enjoyed a trip aboard the Royal Yacht Dannebrog around the Sønderborg Bay coast where they saw many bonfires in the area to mark Midsummer.
Also the Dannebrog’s crew assembled a choir to sing Holger Drachmann’s Midsummer song.
Graasten Palace has been the Danish Royal Family’s summer home when King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid (then the Crown Prince and Crown Princess) were granted the use of the South Jutland palace following their wedding in 1935.
Queen Margrethe, Princess Benedikte and Queen Anne-Marie spent many summer holidays at Graasten during childhood.
Following Queen Ingrid’s death in 2000, Queen Margrethe has continued this family tradition with her sons, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim, and her eight grandchildren.
