Written by City Radio on September 8, 2022
Denmark’s artistic and chain-smoking Queen Margrethe II has been hailed for unifying and modernising the monarchy in her 50 years on the throne, a milestone to be celebrated in pomp and circumstance this weekend.
The 82-year-old Margrethe, with her trademark white-haired bun is the first woman to hold the position of reigning queen. And she has become the second longest-serving monarch in Danish history.
Having come to power amid waning support for the royals in 1972, she helped restore its standing in the decades that followed.
