The new King and Queen of Denmark have taken their first procession through the streets of Copenhagen in their new roles.

The couple travelled from Christiansborg Palace back to their home at Frederik VIII’s Palace, Amalienborg via a horse-drawn carriage after Queen Margrethe’s abdication and the proclamation of King Frederik. 

Their four children, Crown Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, followed behind in a car.

The crowds in the Danish capital were excited to see the new royal couple with some seen running down the street to catch a glimpse.

After arriving back home, King Frederik and Queen Mary briefly appeared on the balcony to greet the crowds in the Amalienborg complex.

King Frederik kissed his wife on the cheek as they waved to the adoring crowds. Their four children could be seen smiling in the background, although they did not make an appearance on the balcony.

However, a few moments later, the doors reopened and the family appeared to greet the crowds once more with the King and Queen being joined by their children for a final wave.

King Frederik was emotional again and kept touching his heart as thanks to his people for the reception he had received as their new king.
