Stunning in scarlet! Queen Margrethe II of Denmark beams as she arrives at St Katharine’s Danish Church in Camden for a service in honor of her Golden Jubilee
Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II commanded attention in a vibrant outfit as she stepped out in north London on Sunday morning.
The beaming royal, 82, attended a celebratory service in honor of her Golden Jubilee at St Katharine’s Danish Church in Camden.
Looking typically colorful, the Danish Queen donned a scarlet single-breasted jacket with a matching red and burgundy boater. She also wore her Order of the Garter, which she received on her state visit to the United Kingdom in 1979, invested in 1980.
The Garter is an order of chivalry founded by Edward III of England in 1348. It is the oldest order of chivalry in the British honors system, second only to the Victoria Cross and the George Cross.

Queen Margrethe pinned her hair under her boater showing off her earrings and opted for red lipstick.
She was attending the Danish Church in the North London borough for a celebratory church service in honor of her 50th Jubilee following her accession to the throne on January 14, 1972.
Queen Margrethe is now the longest living European monarch after the death of Queen Elizabeth II earlier this year.
The Danish monarch has been celebrating her jubilee for a few months and last week was photographed with her family in Copenhagen.

It was the first time since September that she had been seen in public with her son Prince Joachim.
Joachim, 53, who is Margrethe’s youngest son, was joined at Copenhagen City Hall by his second wife, Princess Mary, 46, as well as his sister-in-law, Crown Princess Mary, 50, and his older brother, Crown Prince Frederik, 54.
It was the first time the Danish queen, her sons and their wives were all seen on the same occasion after Joachim slammed his mother for stripping her four children of their royal titles.
In September, Margrethe ruffled feathers when she announced that Prince Nikolai, 23, Prince Felix, 20, Prince Henrik, 13, and Princess Athena, 10, would no longer be known as princes or princess or as His Royal Highnesses from 1 January 2023.

Instead, they will be Earls and Countesses and will be addressed as Their Excellencies.
Following his announcement, Joachim spoke to Danish publication Ekstra Bladet outside the Danish Embassy in Paris, where he lives with his French-born wife, Princess Marie, and his two youngest children, and said that her four children had been “hurt” by their grandmother’s decision.
But on the outing, the Danish Royal Family appeared to put the line on the titles behind them as they posed for photos ahead of the Golden Jubilee celebrations in Copenhagen.
