Prince Joachim and Princess Marie arrive from France to join Queen Margrethe’s celebrations of Danish film industry – Royal Central – .


Queen Margrethe paid tribute to the Danish film industry at the traditional Fredensborg concert which took place in the Castle Church of Fredensborg Castle on Tuesday. Her Majesty organized a concert and a dinner for a large crowd. Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie joined the Queen for the celebrations.

In total, 175 guests were present for the dinner. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie live in Paris but visited Denmark for part of the week. They arrived in the country on Tuesday morning, with the couple due to return to France towards the end of the week.

A luxurious three-course dinner was served to the guests. A soup tureen from the royal garden accompanied by lobster was offered as a starter. As a main course, the guests tasted a fillet of venison with potato. For dessert, a “hit cake” was offered with mini oranges from the Orangery Royale.

Fredensborg concerts have been an ongoing tradition at the Royal House for over 20 years. More recently, in 2019, it was the Danish Commonwealth that was the center of attention, and before that it was, among others, the entrepreneurial environment and the health sector. This year, the Queen wanted to recognize the efforts of the film industry to make Denmark and Danish talent known to the world, and therefore Her Majesty invited a wide range of representatives of the film industry to Fredensborg Castle.

Denmark is a strong film nation with proud traditions. As early as 1896 the inhabitants of Copenhagen were able to attend the first screening of films on Danish soil and the following year the late royal court photographer Peter Elfeldt began production of a large number of Danish silent films on the daily life and major public events. Since then, Danish names such as Ole Olsen, Benjamin Christensen, Asta Nielsen and George Schnéevoigt have secured Denmark an important role in the history of cinema.
