Queen Margrethe of Denmark enjoyed a celebratory service at the Danish Church of St Katharine’s in Camden

Queen Margrethe of Denmark appeared in good spirits as she attended a service in honour of her Golden Jubilee earlier this week.

The royal, 82, who has been on the throne for 50 years, cut a regal figure in a bold red outfit as she stepped out at the Danish Church of St Katharine’s in Camden.

She accessorised with a burgundy handbag and a brooch symbolising her Order of the Garter positioned carefully on her vibrant red blazer. The longest-reigning living European monarch received the order of chivalry during a UK state visit in 1979.

Queen Margrethe drew attention to her face with a striking red lipstick, while opting to wear her hair pulled back to reveal jewelled earrings.

The Danish Royal House explained her visit to London in an Instagram post that has received almost 13,000 likes.

The monarch can be seen holding a bouquet of flowers and waving to those gathered outside of the Danish church.

The caption of the post reads: “In the first week of Christmas, Her Majesty the Queen is on her traditional December private stay in London.

“The Majesty spent Sunday morning in the Danish Church in London, where the Majesty took part in a celebratory service.”

The Queen was able to see for the time, the outer garment worn by clergy during services that she designed for the church during the pandemic.

It features colours that pay tribute to both Denmark and the British flag, with red and white.

One person wrote: “For us Danes abroad in London and the rest of Great Britain, it was a very special experience that His Majesty spent Sunday morning with us.”

“Her Majesty is very welcome indeed. I have before seen Their Majesties Queens Margrethe and Anne-Marie lunching at Sotheby’s in Bond Street. I do hope Her Majesty has a very enjoyable private visit during Her time in London,” another said,

A third added: “Brings back so many good memories. My husband and I got married in The Danish Church in London 20 years ago. The Church is so beautiful. I’m very happy that Queen Margrethe visited this very Danish and unique Church.🙏🏻🕯🇩🇰🇬🇧❤️”
