Council of State


Recommended Posts





In the process of the succession of the throne, a Council of State will be held in the Council of State Room at Christiansborg Palace with the participation of HM The Queen, HRH The Crown Prince and the government. The secretary of the Council of State and HRH Prince Christian will also be present. 
During the Council of State meeting, The Queen will sign her abdication declaration. At that point, The Crown Prince assumes the throne as HM King Frederik X. At the same time, HRH Prince Christian becomes Crown Prince.
HM Queen Margrethe will then leave the Council of State Room, and The King will take the seat at the head of the table. HRH Crown Prince Christian, who as an adult heir to the throne will have a permanent seat in the Council of State, will take the seat to the right of The King.  
After the Council of State comes the proclamation, when the new sovereign is proclaimed by the Prime Minister from the balcony of Christiansborg Palace.
