Queen Margrethe of Denmark has been named the Robert Award’s Costume Designer of the Year.

The former reigning monarch was given the prize for her artistic work in the film “Ehrengard – The Art of Seduction.”

Queen Margrethe was awarded the honour on 3 February.

The Royal House released a photo of the Queen with her award on their social media channels.

Regarding winning Costume Designer of the Year, Her Majesty said: “I am deeply grateful, touched and proud of the recognition that the Robert Award represents. Receiving an award that the industry itself awards makes me particularly happy, and it has been a great joy and pleasure to be able to contribute to the expression of the film. I would like to thank the entire team behind the film, but I especially thank all those who have made my ideas, sketches and drawings a reality – not least the talented people who have sewn and worked with the many costumes.”

The Robert Award is presented annually by the Danish Film Academy (similar to the Oscars in the United States). She was up for two prizes: Set Designer of the Year and Costume Designer of the Year.

Queen Margrethe abdicated the throne in favour of her eldest son, Frederik, on 14 January, after reigning 52 years.
