Prince Christian, the son of Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik, is preparing for his television debut just before turning 18. The Danish royal palace has shared previews of the upcoming broadcast on their Instagram account, featuring Prince Christian at a recording studio microphone.
Additionally, they've posted photos of Christian and his father Frederik in various settings, such as inside a car and at the Danish Parliament, known as the Folketing. In honor of his upcoming 18th birthday on October 15th, Prince Christian has recorded a special program exploring various Danish institutions, including Parliament, the Supreme Court, the church, and the military.
The program is scheduled to be aired on October 14th on DR's digital platforms. To mark this significant milestone, Queen Margrethe will host a white-tie gala dinner at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen on October 15th. Among the guests will be representatives from the country's youth organizations, emerging talents, and members of foreign royal families.
The requirement for a white-tie dress code implies that it is probable for royal women attending the event to be dressed in formal evening gowns and adorned with tiaras.
Several foreign royals have already affirmed their presence at the gala, including Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and his 19-year-old daughter, Princess Ingrid Alexandra. Additionally, Sweden's Crown Princess, Prince Daniel, and their 11-year-old daughter, Princess Estelle, will also be in attendance.
On the morning of his 18th birthday, Prince Christian will join his family and Queen Margrethe on the balcony of Frederik VIII's Palace. Additionally, on the 14th of November, he will take part in a Council of State meeting during which he will formally declare his commitment to uphold the Constitution. Prince Christian, as the eldest son of Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik, holds the position of being second in line to the Danish throne, marking him as a future king.
He is presently in the last year of his secondary education at Ordrup Gymnasium.
Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik have three other children as well: Princess Isabella, who is 16 years old, and 12-year-old twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.
