Queen Margrethe’s First Official Portraits, 1972

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark was joined by Prince Henrik as she posed for her First Official Portraits as Queen, which were taken by legendary photographer Rigmor Mydtskov around this time in 1972 (50 years ago), a month after her accession to the Danish Throne upon the death of her father, King Frederick IX.
