The exhibition
The National History Museum celebrates the jubilee of HM The Queen’s reign with the special exhibit ‘’Regent for 40 Years – Queen Margrethe 1972-2012’’, which tells the story of The Queen’s role as regent. Among other things, the exhibition gives insight into The Queen’s official role and an opportunity to take a tour through the four decades in which The Queen has reigned. On the occasion of the jubilee, the artist Niels Strøbek has painted a portrait of The Queen, which is being unveiled in connection with the exhibition’s opening. 

The exhibition opens 12 January and runs until 22 April.
 
Portrait by Niels Strøbek
Today, a new official portrait of HM The Queen, HRH The Crown Prince and HRH Prince Christian was unveiled. It took place in connection with the opening of a jubilee exhibition at Frederiksborg Palace. 
 
It is the Danish painter Niels Strøbek who has created the large portrait of the three royals, in which they can be seen dressed in gala by the balcony door in the Great Hall of Christian IX’s Palace at Amalienborg. It is an official portrait of the reigning monarch and her two successors and, at the same time, a portrayal of a family. 
 
Viewers also meet persons who have left their stamp on the country in the areas of politics, business, culture and more.  Main developments in each of the decades are described on film by four influential prime ministers – Anker Jørgensen, Poul Schlüter, Poul Nyrup Rasmussen and Anders Fogh Rasmussen. They also tell about their cooperation with The Queen. 
 
The painting was commissioned by The National History Museum at Frederiksborg Palace, where it will henceforward hang and be part of the permanent collection.
