The Danish Royal House has released the schedule for Queen Margrethe’s abdication and King Frederik’s accession.

On 14 January, a Council of State meeting will take place at 2:00 pm at Christiansborg Palace.

Following that, King Frederik X will be proclaimed King of Denmark on the balcony of the palace at 3:00 pm.

At 5:00 pm, the royal colours will be transferred to Frederik VIII’s Palace, Amalienborg – the residence of the new monarch – from Christian IX’s Palace.

There will be no coronation as this is not a tradition in Denmark.

Following the abdication, Queen Margrethe will retain the style of Her Majesty and the title of Queen. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will, of course, become King and Queen of Denmark, while Prince Christian will obtain the title of Crown Prince of Denmark.

Additional details will be released as the day nears.
