The Royal Court of Denmark announced on 9 February 2023 that Queen Margrethe will be admitted to hospital later this month.
Queen Margrethe has suffered from back problems for quite some time and recently has become worse.
After consulting with specialists at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Queen Margrethe will undergo extensive surgery.
The operation is scheduled for Wednesday, 22 February, followed by an extended stay in the hospital and rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, Queen Margrethe’s official engagements will be postponed, cancelled or carried out by other members of the Danish Royal Family whilst she recovers.
We wish Her Majesty a speedy recovery.
