Anachronisms 

In 1769, when Queen Caroline Mathilde is taking tea with the Dowager Queen Juliane Marie, they are clearly seen to be drinking from Danish Flora Danica cups. The Royal Danish Porcelain Factory was not established until 1775 and was the service was not put to use by the Danish Royal Family until 1803.
The Danish colloquialism "rolig nu" ("easy now") features in the dialogue, but this is a modern innovation dating back only to the 1990s or so.

Factual errors 

While all of the characters all speak Danish in the film, the court language in Denmark at the time was actually German. In real life neither Count von Bernstorff nor Johann Struensee spoke any Danish, and it is more than likely that Christian and Caroline also conversed in German rather than the "people's language."
