Trivia

The Danish monarch's annual speech for the New Year is a tradition since 1 January 1941 when a recorded Christian X speech was aired on radio. The first televised speech was held by Frederik IX in 1958, also on January 1st, in connection with an annual state banquet. It is now televised annually on 31 December on several channels, live from the monarch's study at Amalienborg and accompanied by pictures of the change of guards outside. Queen Margrethe II, who gave her first New Years speech in 1972, writes her speeches herself based on a draft from the Ministry of State. Her speeches have a personal touch and hold subjects of ethical and cultural character. See more »
