Following the coronation of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark on Monday, the family will have their choice of lavish residences that form part of the holdings of the country’s royal family.
Frederik, 55, and Mary, 51, currently reside at Frederik VIII’s Palace with their children Prince Christian, 18, Princess Isabella, 16, and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, 13. This is one of the four palaces that make up the Amalienborg Palace complex.
During the summer months they have taken up residence at the Chancellery House, a building in the park at Fredensborg.
Following the historic coronation, it is expected they will remain at Frederik VIII’s Palace.
Queen Margrethe II, who announced her abdication during her New Year’s Eve 2023 public address, will continue her residence at Christian IX’s Palace. This will eventually be inherited by Prince Christian, who is next in line to the Danish throne.
Amalienborg is located in the centre of Denmark and is comprised of four palaces including Christian VII’s Palace, Frederik VIII’s Palace, Christian VIII’s Palace and Christian IX’s Palace.
Christiansborg Palace, the previous residence of the Danish royal family which was destroyed by fire and refurbished, now houses the Danish Parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Ministry of State.
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary took on their new royal roles on January 14, the day that marks the 52nd anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne, following the death of her father in 1972.
