The first official portrait of King Frederik X and Queen Mary of Denmark has been released online. The monarch ascended the throne on January 14, 2024, after his mother Margrethe II officially abdicated after 52 years of rule.

The picture of the couple was published on the Instagram page of the Danish royal family. The portrait depicts Their Majesties with the Order of the Elephant on chains, the country's highest national award. From now on, the photo will be displayed in government institutions, including Danish embassies and consulates around the world, and on Danish ships.

A sparkling diamond miniature portrait of the King can be seen on Her Majesty's chest. For many generations, there has been a tradition that women of the royal family should wear a photo of the monarch. Thus, when Mary was crown princess, she wore a portrait of Queen Margrethe.
