Danish Television Networks Gearing Up for Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II’s Jubilee! Basically, A Week of Non-Stop Documentaries and Live Programming!
So, are you ready to watch and celebrate Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark’s 40th anniversary on the Danish throne on January 14, 2012?
Yes? Good. So am I. And, so are the Danish television networks, DR1 and TV2.
Beginning on Sunday, January 8, 2012, DR1 will air a documentary about the super amazing Queen Margrethe II. The next day, Part Two of the program will air.
Tuesday, January 10, 2012, Her Majesty will hold a press conference at 4pm in the Great Hall at Christian IX’s Palace. Prince Henrik will also be in attendance.
On Wednesday, January 11, 2012, the Danish royal family, minus Princess Marie, will attend the opening of the exhibition, Royal Gala, at the Amalienborg Museum. Later on in the evening, TV2 will air their live interview with Her Majesty starting at 8pm.
On January 14, 2012, DR1 and TV2 will broadcast live the wreath laying ceremony at Roskilde Cathedral, the carriage ride through Copenhagen, and the reception as well as balcony appearance at the Copenhagen City Hall.
At 8pm, DR1 will air the glamourous gala concert live from DR Concert Hall.
On Sunday, the Danish royal family will meet with the Council of State at Christiansborg Slot. Afterward, they will appear on the balcony at Christian IXs Palace at Amalienborg Slot live on DR1.
After a brief luncheon hosted by the Crown Princely couple at Frederik VIIIs Slot, the royal family will attend a celebratory service at Christiansborg Slot chapel starting at 3pm.
At 8pm, the Danish royal family — along with members from the Norwegian and Swedish royal families, local dignitaries, and the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg family — will attend a gala dinner at Christiansborg Slot. Again, it will be aired live on DR1 and TV2. The latter will apparently broadcast the after party.
Now, there is a good chance you can watch all the festivities on DR1 and TV2 online so you might want to bookmark their websites.
