A number of the events that had been scheduled to mark the 50th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen’s Accession to the Throne in mid-January 2022 will instead be held on 10 and 11 September 2022. These include, among other things, a celebration at the Copenhagen City Hall, a command performance at the Royal Danish Theatre’s Old Stage, a celebratory church service in Copenhagen Cathedral and a gala banquet at Christiansborg Palace. In addition, there will be an opportunity to pay tribute to The Queen in connection with a grand changing of the guard at Amalienborg Palace Square. The final program will be announced later in the year.


The adapted program for the anniversary day on 14 January 2022 thus looks like this:


09:30: HM The Queen begins the day with a council of state at Christiansborg Palace together with HRH The Crown Prince.


10:00: HM The Queen, The Crown Prince Couple, TRH Prince Joachim and Princess Marie and HRH Princess Benedikte attend the Danish Parliament’s official celebration of the anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne.


12:00: HM The Queen, The Crown Prince Couple, TRH Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, HRH Princess Benedikte and HM Queen Anne-Marie participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at Frederik the 9th and Queen Ingrid’s grave at Roskilde Cathedral.

Article about the Faroe Islands and Greenland Stamps: Beautiful anniversary greeting: Greenland and the Faroe Islands celebrate Margrethe | PICTURE MAGAZINE (billedbladet.dk)


It is not only in Denmark that Queen Margrethe's 50th anniversary is beautifully marked.

Queen Margrethe is in the lead role on Friday 14 January, when Her Majesty's 50th anniversary is celebrated in style in Denmark, and you can follow it all here on our website.

Queen Margrethe is celebrated

Also in Greenland and the Faroe Islands, Queen Margrethe's 50th anniversary is marked.

This happens, among other things, with new stamps.

Work with the two brands has been very demanding and challenging, and along the way, use has been made of techniques dating back 1000 years.
Stamp making began in the spring of 2021, when Margrethe was photographed in her Greenlandic and Faroese national costumes.


Special technique from the High Middle Ages

Photographer Steen Brogaard is behind the pictures, and they were taken in the Dome Hall at Fredensborg Castle.

Subsequently, illustrator and engraver Martin Mörck has worked with the pictures.

He first created the expression of the stamps and then scratched the final motifs into steel.

This special technique and way of working with image creation goes all the way back to the High Middle Ages.


Icefjord and Magnuskatedralens ruin

The Greenlandic stamp shows the Queen by a fjord with icebergs in the background, and the Faroese shows Margrethe at the ruin of the Magnus Cathedral in the village of Kirkjubøur on the island of Streymoy.

Below you can see the stamps that have just been presented on the Royal Family's Instagram profile.


The stamps, which are released in minisheets, can be purchased from Friday, January 14.

Queen Anne-Marie cannot travel to Denmark.

"Her Majesty the Queen marks her 50th golden jubilee in January 2022. We at Gardernetværk have been thinking about what we could come up with to give the Queen as a suitable gift.

During this process, we became aware that there was a great desire to establish a new guard building at Marselisborg Palace. When we heard from several of our younger members that it was a worn out (and ugly) building, it was right for Gardernetværk to be in charge of raising money so that the old building could be replaced with a new one."

"More specifically, the millions go to a brand new guard building, which stands by Marselisborg Palace in Aarhus - the Queen's summer and Christmas residence. The old guard building, which the lifeguard stays in when they take a break, is outdated and the guards need better working conditions. This is what Michel Klitvad, president and founder of the organization Gardernetværk, which consists of former and current guards, sergeants and officers, says."
