Who is Queen Margrethe II Ex-Husband: Meet Prince Henrik



Queen Margrethe II

, born on 16 April 1940, is the world's only current queen regnant and the longest-serving female head of state. Born into the House of Glücksburg, she became the heir presumptive to her father in 1953 when a constitutional amendment allowed women to inherit the throne. She married French diplomat Henri de Laborde de Monpezat in 1967, who had two sons, Frederik and Joachim. Margrethe succeeded her father upon his death in 1972.

As sovereign, has received 42 official state visits and undertaken 55 foreign state visits herself. Support for the monarchy in Denmark has been consistently high at around 82%, with Margrethe's popularity contributing to this support. In her annual New Year's Eve address on 31 December 2023, Margrethe announced her decision to abdicate the throne in favor of her son, Crown Prince Frederik, on 14 January 2024.

Queen Margrethe II was the first female Danish sovereign under the new Act of Succession, relinquishing other titles but maintaining the title to Denmark. She holds various official residences, including Amalienborg Palace and Fredensborg Palace, and serves as the colonel-in-chief of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment in the British Army.
