RoyaltyThe 82-year-old Danish Queen Margrethe tested positive for the corona virus on Tuesday evening. The palace has announced that. On Monday, the queen was still present at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and she was very close to other royals, including King Philippe and Queen Mathilde.
The Danish Queen Margrethe has contracted corona for the second time this year. The Queen currently resides in Fredensborg Palace. All her activities for the coming week have been cancelled. She was said to have a meeting on Friday at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen for members of the government and parliament.
It is striking that Margrethe was still present in London last Sunday and Monday at the farewell of Queen Elizabeth. During the funeral in Westminster Abbey she sat in the front row with her son Crown Prince Frederik, just like King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix. Just behind her were members of the Spanish royal family, with our own royal couple Filip and Mathilde behind them. The Danish queen also had very close contact with King Charles III on Monday. A photo of this was posted by the Danish royal family yesterday.

Are King Filip and Mathilde getting tested?
The royal palace in Brussels has not missed the fact that the Danish queen became infected: The monarchs have been informed and will provide the appropriate follow-up, in line with the measures in force,” they said in a response. “Even with high-risk contact outside the household, you don’t have to go into quarantine or get tested these days. They remain alert to possible symptoms.”
