Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II held a service on Sunday as part of the celebrations of her 50th jubilee London visited. The 82-year-old monarch smiled and waved at onlookers as she arrived at Denmark’s St Catherine’s Church in Camden, London. She wore a red blazer and matching hat.

Margaret had the throne after the death of her father Frederik IX. inherited on January 14, 1972. In addition to the EU country Denmark, their kingdom also includes Greenland and the small Faroe Islands.

the celebrations for the gold anniversary had to be postponed several times. First, the Danish queen was thwarted by the corona pandemic, then the British queen Queen Elizabeth II died in September and the celebration was postponed again for reasons of piety. The time had come in mid-November. Margrethe was celebrated by thousands in Copenhagen.
