King Frederik has been awarded the Danish Red Cross’s Medal of Honour.

His Majesty was presented with the Red Cross’s highest honour on 29 February by the president of the Danish Red Cross, Jette Runchel, and general secretary Anders Ladekarl at Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg.

The representatives from the organisation thanked King Frederik for his support for the Red Cross in Denmark and around the world.

The Medal of Honour is usually awarded to former presidents of the Red Cross, and the King’s late father, Prince Henrik, was also presented with the award many years ago.
