Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee Gala

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, including the Balcony Appearance and Reception earlier today.

One thought on “Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee Gala

  1. Unlike the inbred English royal family, the Danes have produced some amazingly beautiful Princes and Princesses. Princes Nikolai and Felix and extraordinarily handsome (and sexy) men.
