Open Post | Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark is finally celebrating her Golden Jubilee, the 50th Anniversary of the Accession to the Danish Throne, after most of the originally lavish celebrations were postponed in January. However, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, many of the events have been cancelled or postponed. This Open Post includes all the links and details, as well as LIVE updates since I am in Copenhagen and have received media accreditation, so be sure to return to this page regularly until the full article on the celebrations is published!
