Crown Princess Margrethe of Denmark is accompanied by her longtime friend, Helle Stangerup, hurry across the campus on her first day at the University of Copenhagen (which I’ll be attending for an exchange semester next year) on this day in 1959, where she studied law and the humanities, for a year before studying prehistoric archaeology at Girton College, Cambridge, from 1960–1961, political science at Aarhus University between 1961 and 1962, the Sorbonne in 1963, and at the London School of Economics in 1965.
