Storyline

In her thirty-second annual New Years speech, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark speaks of the importance of face-to-face dialogue even in an age of electronic communication and the importance of this dialogue in regard to the conflicts and discussions of the society. She sends her greetings to Danish soldiers and aid workers, to Danes who live outside of Denmark, to Greenland and The Faroe Islands, and to those people who do their jobs well every day and make the country work. She also dedicates her attention to those who feel alone and encourages the listeners to use the new year to give attention to those who are left outside or left behind. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

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 »
