Crown Princess Mary joined Queen Margrethe II of Denmark (wearing her Modern Turquoise Suite) for the Royal Film Premiere of Netflix’s ‘Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction’ at the Moltkes Palæ in Copenhagen on the evening of September 6th. Queen Margrethe did the Costume Design and Scenography on ‘Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction’. Count Felix of Monpezat was supposed to join them but had to pull out due to illness.
Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction features set design and costumes by Queen Margrethe II. Since 1970, The Queen has been actively engaged in a number of artistic modes of expression: painting, church textiles, watercolors, prints, book illustrations, découpage works, scenography and embroidery. She is an honorary member of the Association of Danish Scenographers for her many years of work as a set designer in Danish film, television and theater.
“In the fairytale kingdom of Babenhausen, a young, self-appointed expert on love, Cazotte, is hired by the scheming Grand Duchess to help her secure an heir. While searching for a suitable future Princess, Cazotte teaches the timid and introverted Crown Prince the art of seduction and lovemaking. But their plan soon backfires, when an heir is conceived out of wedlock and the royal family has to seek refuge in the castle of Rosenbad. Here, as rivals within the royal family close in on their scheme, Cazotte himself falls in love with Ehrengard, the maid of honor, and gradually learns that in fact, he’s no expert on love at all.”
‘Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction’ premieres on Netflix on the 14th of September
