Photographer Per Morten Abrahamsen took the photo of Queen Margrethe in the Dome Hall at Frederiksborg Palace.

King Frederik IX passed away on 14 January 1972, following a short illness with flu-like symptoms and a heart attack, and his eldest daughter, Queen Margrethe ascending the Danish throne.

The Queen has been the head of state in Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland, as well as commander-in-chief of the Danish Defence, using her motto ‘God’s help, the love of The People, Denmark’s strength’.

Queen Margrethe has represented Denmark abroad, including a visit to Australia and New Zealand in 1987 where Jane Connor observed in her book, Royal Visits to Australia, her arrival into Canberra ‘was attended by more Danish journalists, than locals, and more flies than either of them.’

The Queen’s Golden Jubilee will be celebrated with a series of events during mid-January 2022 with the Royal Family, government representatives and many foreign guests will mark this historic milestone.
