Fans of the royal family will be treated today to Queen Margrethe II and her husband Prince Henrik's annual carriage tour, starting from their residence at Amalienborg Palace to parliament's home of Christiansborg Palace and back again.

In the royal gold trimmed carriage drawn by white horses, the procession will begin at 9
am.

During their audience, Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik will receive their traditional welcome from around 800 of Denmark's most prominent residents today in the Knight's Room (Riddersalen) at Christiansborg.

It is the third segment in the royal couple's traditional New Year's receptions. The first part of the programme was the royal banquet, which took place on New Year's Day.

On Monday, the royal couple also rode the carriage to Christiansborg, where the Supreme Court, Royal Guard, foreign diplomats and the Royal Mounted Regiment's all wished the Queen and Prince a happy New Year.

At 9:30 today the royal couple will meet with members of the Danish military and the Emergency Management Agency.

After that, the pair will exchange greetings with officers representing the three highest ranks in the military, followed by handshakes with the top representatives from labour and employer unions.

The queen will make her return trip back to Amalienborg Palace at 12:15.
