of her father King Frederik IX,january 14th 1972.
HM is also an accomplished artist/designer/writer and her work(paintings) is found on exhibition sometimes.
She also designed many costumes for theatre plays and/or ballets and complete sets,and,on special occasions,
designs vestments for the clergy of the Lutheran church.
In keeping with the tradition of her parents,the entire/extended family spends part of the summer holidays at Graasten Palace,so HM's sisters and husbands & children,grandchildren are taking part as well.
After that HM and Prince Henrik spend most of the summer in Caix,France,at their estate/winery Chateau de Caix.
During her absense her son Crown Prince Frederik acts as Regent,and in case he's abroad as well,
