This weekend, Prince Christian of Denmark will turn eighteen. On the occasion of the big day, Queen Margrethe (83 years old) was invited to a celebratory dinner at Christiansborg Castle.
It is expected that 200 young people will participate in this event, with each municipality choosing two young people aged 18 years to participate.
