Opening of Parliament 2004

5 October 2004

Each year the Danish royal family is present at the new opening of Parliament (Folketinget) in October. They attend the first assembly in their box but leave before the opening debate takes place. The entire ceremony is broadcast live on Danish tv each year.

In her first year as a royal, crown princess Mary was present alongside crown prince Frederik, queen Margrethe II, prince Henrik, princess Benedikte, prince Joachim and princess Alexandra - who were just seperated but not yet divorced.
