On this important day, the entire nation wanted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her government with her likeable regent.

Unfortunately, Corona thwarted the plans.

An extensive event is now to be made up for in late summer.

Queen Margrethe had to be content with a smaller party for the time being, but all her loved ones were by her side and celebrated her properly.

Actually, Anne-Marie of Denmark (75), the second sister of the regent, should have been present.

Due to the corona infection of her husband Konstantin von Greece (81), she was unable to travel from Athens to Copenhagen, much to her regret.
