A Belated 75th Birthday Present! Queen Margrethe Opens New Gardens at Fredensborg Palace

  September 16, 2016 at 5:20 pm by

Queen Margrethe has today opened a new ‘Seasonal Haven’ herbaceous border in the Fredensborg Palace Gardens that was a gift from the Danish Government, Parliament and a number of organisations and individual donors for her 75th birthday last year and has been in planning and construction since.

The Queen wore an appropriately matched pink, orange and yellow floral blouse as she walked the gardens with one of the landscape architects from the Danish Agency for Palaces and Culture who worked on the project with the Queen.

There are four segments of the Haven, one representing each season of the year, and has been designed based on drawings from pheasant houses from the 1700s.

The Queen gave her input into which types of flowers and colours should be used in what areas to create the overall design. There are over 10,000 bulbs in the garden, some of which were a gift from King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands to his godmother on her milestone birthday.
