Queen Margrethe's Official/State Visits 1973 to Present



Welcome to Queen Margrethe's Official and State Visits Thread.

HM Margrethe II has made over fifty official/state visits which, of course, do not include weddings, christenings or funerals since becoming Queen of Denmark in 1972. This thread is an attempt to provide an overview of the Queen's foreign visits.

Enjoy!
