Nobility: Denmark’s King Frederik celebrates first birthday as king

The new King of Denmark is celebrating his birthday. The whole family is waving and celebrating from the balcony of Amalienburg Palace.

Denmark’s new King Frederik X has celebrated his first birthday since his accession to the throne. Smiling and waving, the now 56-year-old monarch appeared with his family at lunchtime on the balcony of Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen.

He was accompanied by his mother Queen Margrete (84), his wife Queen Mary (52) and his four children, Crown Prince Christian (18), Princess Isabella (17), and the twins Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent (both 13). The dresses of the two queens appeared to be colour-coordinated – both appeared in bright pink outfits.

According to a report by the Danish news agency Ritzau, the royal family wanted to spend the rest of the day in private. Frederik succeeded his mother to the throne at the beginning of the year after she surprisingly announced her abdication in her New Year’s speech.
