European royals have emerged in power to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
A gala was held in Copenhagen to mark her 50 years on the throne – as she now becomes the world’s longest-serving female sovereign after Queen Elizabeth’s death. Only Hassanal Bolkiah – the sultan of Brunei – has served longer.
Royals from Norway, Greece, Sweden and other countries attended the event, along with leading European dignitaries.

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark herself looked incredibly happy as she welcomed guests into the theater.
She wore a beautiful red dress and adorned with jewels and also liked to pose for pictures.
The monarch, who has reigned for 50 years now, must have been relieved that the gala went ahead.
Several events planned for her were canceled this weekend following the death of Queen Elizabeth. However, the Danish Queen would certainly pay her respects to Elizabeth during this event.
And further social mediaa, she posted a message requesting a minute of silence before the festivities started.
The event was packed with European members of the royal family, in addition to members of the Danish royal family.
Among them were Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark and Carlos Morales Quintana, and King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.
