Frederik VIII’s Palace at Amalienborg is the setting this evening for a dinner in connection with the Crown Prince Frederik Foundation’s 25th anniversary.  

Today, the palace serves as the Crown Prince Couple’s private residence, and The Crown Prince is thus the fourth Danish successor to the throne named Frederik who has lived in Frederik VIII’s Palace.

In connection with the renovation of the palace from 2004-2010, ten Danish artists decorated a number of the palace’s ceremonial rooms. Artist Erik A. Frandsen is behind the decoration of The Crown Princess’s study and the palace’s banquet hall.

The banquet hall runs across the palace, and the walls are graced with five mirror-polished steel plates. The plates are four meters high and are engraved with bouquets of flowers. The engravings were made with a drill, which is one of Erik A. Frandsen’s special techniques.
