The Queen will appear at the City Hall (Rådhuspladsen) balcony – where thousands of people will be able to gather on the City Hall Square below – to celebrate her jubilee.

This year has already seen events to mark the Queen’s jubilee, but the balcony appearance has been rescheduled on repeat occasions for different reasons.

It will now take place on November 12th, the palace confirmed in a statement.

The celebrations were initially scheduled for the beginning of 2022, closer to the exact date of the jubilee. They were postponed until September due to Covid-19 restrictions.

A second postponement saw celebrations on September 10th toned down following the death of Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Margrethe will step onto the balcony in central Copenhagen at 1pm, according to the November 12th schedule.

Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary to visit homeland Australia with children

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is to visit Australia, the country of her birth, with her children for the first time for five years.

Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary to visit homeland Australia with children

The visit will be part of a private Christmas visit in December, the royal palace said in a statement. Crown Prince Frederik, the heir to the Danish throne, will also travel to Australia.

Although Crown Princess Mary has visited Australia within the last five years, her children have not accompanied her on any of the more recent visits.

Strict travel curbs in Australia during the Covid-19 pandemic reduced options for the Danish royals to visit Mary’s homeland.

Crown Princess Mary was born Mary Elizabeth Donaldson and is originally from Tasmania. She met Crown Prince Frederik during the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

The couple married in 2004, with Mary taking the title of Crown Princess and automatically receiving Danish citizenship.

The palace did not give details as to the length of the upcoming visit or where in Australia the family are scheduled to travel to.
