The Crown Prince family
The next generation of royalty is growing up fast. The Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have four children and the eldest, Christian, is second in line to the Danish throne. HRH Crown Princess Mary is originally from Tasmania and is known as a style icon. HRH Crown Prince Frederik is a very popular figure in Denmark and has been voted Dane of the Year in Danish opinion polls more than once.
Royal Pomp and Ceremony
The Queen celebrated 40 years on the throne with pomp and celebration in January 2012. On special occasions such as these, the Crown Pair traditionally take a carriage tour from their home, Amalienborg Palace, (insert Guide DK link) through Copenhagen. The whole family also gathers on special occasions to wave to the public from the palace balcony. Visit the Monarchy website to find out when the next regal celebrations will be happening for a taste of your own royal Danish traditions.
The Royal Yacht Dannebrog
Since the 1930s, the impressive Royal Yacht Dannebrog has served as official and private residence of various members of the Royal Family during state visits abroad and summer tours of Denmark. The yacht is named after the Danish flag and is still fantastically ship-shape, despite its 75 years of age!
