The King and Queen of Denmark have presented their first official portraits.

The photographs will adorn all state institutions in Denmark.

Three months after ascending to the throne, the King and Queen of Denmark have released their first official portraits. The photographs were taken by photographer Stin Ewald in the royal reception hall.

52-year-old Queen Maria poses in an elegant emerald green dress with lace sleeves. Stylists meticulously crafted her look, giving her a high hairstyle and evening makeup with smoky eyes. Special attention was paid to accessories – the palace prepared a special booklet describing the jewelry.

The Orders of the Elephant, worn by both spouses, are the highest chivalric honor in Denmark. Maria also showcased a new portrait order featuring King Frederick X – it was shown to the public for the first time and is intended for female members of the royal family.

Maria wears an historic emerald tiara, worn exclusively by queens and part of the crown’s diamond fund, adorning her head. The sparkling emerald stones of the tiara perfectly complement the queen consort’s bottle-green dress.

Meanwhile, 55-year-old Frederick X appeared before the camera in a classic ceremonial uniform and white gloves.

From now on, the portrait can be seen hanging in government institutions, including Danish embassies and consulates worldwide, as well as in courtrooms.

Meanwhile, last month, the royal couple announced their first joint royal tours. Next week, Frederick and Maria will make an official state visit to Norway. In early May, they’ll visit Sweden, and in June-July, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. The King and Queen will travel aboard the royal yacht Dannebrog.
