A new portrait and a logo have also been released. The portrait, found here, was taken by Tina Harden. The logo, which features the birth date and age topped by the royal crown (found here) was designed by Paul Bear in conjunction with Wonderful Copenhagen. The logo and portrait are to be used in shops, cities, etc which are celebrating the Queen's birthday.

City gifts Queen generously

Queen Margrethe II turns 70 next month, and the birthday girl is already getting some pretty expensive presents.

Copenhagen City Council has decided to present the regent with a gift of 230,000 kroner in honour of the occasion. An agreement between the palace and the council, however, has already earmarked the funds to renovate the royal reception rooms in the parliament building.

Anti-monarchy group banned from Queen's birthday

There will be no demonstrations against the monarchy allowed at Queen Margrethe's 70th birthday celebration, which is to be held at Amalienborg Palace Square on 16 April.

Copenhagen Police announced yesterday that the Republican Constitution Movement (DRG) – which announced earlier this month it would hold a demonstration when the queen comes out onto the palace balcony – is banned from the event.

it seems odd to me that they can "ban" demonstrations. that's what demonstrations are all about, things it is difficult to stop. demonstrations entail some sort of "disruption" and if they could stop them (by security measures) you would have thought they would? banning them with words seems odd to me - obviously the more you ban it the more people would like to perform them... does this mean that the security measures will be more restrictive than usual?

otherwise, i'm very happy we will see the dutch royals in denmark. i believe mette marit would not come because of neck problems. let's hope other royal families confirm their attendance!

Don't think Mette-Marit will be attending. :sad:

They may not like the Queen, her position and what she represents; but I think they should at least show some respect on this important occasion.

Queen Margrethe opened an exhibition at the Amalienborg Museum on Thursday April 8. 2010. Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik took the short stroll from the Palais to the Museum on foot across the Amalienborg Palaca Square.
