New official gala portraits

updated


25 April 2024 

Following the change of throne in January, the first official gala portraits have now been published of King Frederik and Queen Mary! The portraits were taken in the Green Hall at Christiansborg Castle in Copenhagen. 

The moment was captured by talented photographer Steen Evald. He is the master of some of my favourite portraits of the royal family - like the couple's wedding photos and those taken on occasion of their 5th anniversary in 2009. Huge fan of Evald's work.
