The Danish government has revealed how Queen Margrethe will be addressed after her 14 January abdication.

Queen Margrethe will remain “Her Majesty” after abdication, following in the footsteps of her Belgian counterpart, King Albert who abdicated in favour of his son, Philippe, in 2013.

A Council of State meeting will take place on Margrethe’s abdication day at Christiansborg Palace where the Prime Minister will declare a change in reign.

Upon her abdication, Crown Prince Frederik, her elder son, will become King Frederik X. His son, Christian, will assume the role of Crown Prince of Denmark.

Further details regarding the abdication will be announced in the coming days.

Queen Margrethe ascended the throne on 14 January 1972 after the death of her father, King Frederick IX.

Until her abdication, Margrethe holds the title of Europe’s longest-reigning monarch. Once she abdicates, King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden will assume that role.
