Amid Royal Controversies, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary Gear Up for Simplified Coronation in Denmark

Denmark’s Historic Coronation Amidst Royal Upheaval

This Sunday marks a significant moment for Denmark as Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary prepare to ascend the throne, succeeding Queen Margrethe, who surprisingly abdicated on New Year’s Eve.

The coronation promises a distinctive contrast to the elaborate ceremony held for King Charles in May.

Ceremonial Details and Route

Commencing around 1:35 pm, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, and their son HRH Prince Christian will travel from Amalienborg to Christiansborg Palace, while Queen Margrethe will depart from Christian IX’s Palace in a carriage.

Both processions will traverse key locations, including Frederiksgade, Bredgade, Kongens Nytorv, Holmens Canal, and Prince Jørgen’s Courtyard.

Council of State and Abdication Declaration

At 2 pm, a Council of State at Christiansborg Palace will witness the participation of Margrethe, Frederik, and Christian, along with the Government and the Council of State secretary.

This marks the moment of abdication, as Queen Margrethe signs a declaration officially relinquishing the throne. Post this, a formal reception for invited guests will be hosted by Frederik and Mary.

Balcony Appearance, Proclamation, and Carriage Ride

At 3 pm, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will make a balcony appearance at Christiansborg Palace.

Subsequently, the Prime Minister will announce the King’s accession to the throne.

Following the monarch’s speech and the honorary cannon salute from the Sixtus Battery, a carriage ride back to Amalienborg is scheduled, escorted by a mounted squadron. At 5 pm, a transfer of royal colors will occur from Christian IX’s Palace to Frederik VIII’s Palace.

Royal Family Dynamics and Prince Joachim’s Attendance

Amidst reports suggesting Prince Joachim, Frederik’s younger brother, attending the event solo, tensions within the royal family have been evident.

Joachim’s wife and children will reportedly stay in Washington DC, where Joachim serves as a defense industry attaché. This decision follows the Queen’s controversial move to strip four grandchildren of their HRH titles in 2022, a decision Joachim criticized.

Royal Family Turmoil and Joachim’s Perspective

Prince Joachim, whose children were affected by the title-stripping decision, expressed concerns about the lack of communication within the Royal Family.

Initially opposing the move, he later acknowledged the need for improved communication. Joachim’s perspective adds to the turbulent period that the Danish royal family has experienced, including rumors of Prince Frederik’s alleged affair.

Speculations on Queen Margrethe’s Abdication Motivation

Rumors suggest that Queen Margrethe’s abdication might be linked to preserving the marriage of her son, Crown Prince Frederik, and Crown Princess Mary, amidst alleged infidelity rumors.

While the royal family faces challenges, the Danish people anticipate the coronation of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary with mixed sentiments, acknowledging the complexity of royal relationships.
