New Lord Chamberlain at the Royal Danish House

Her Majesty The Queen has named the Royal Danish House’s master of ceremonies, chamberlain Kim Kristensen, as the new Lord Chamberlain effective 1 April 2021.

Kim Kristensen assumes the position after chamberlain Michael Ehrenreich, who, after six years as Lord Chamberlain, has decided to resign from his post in order to retire. Michael Ehrenreich has chosen to arrange his departure so that his successor has time to plan for the 50th jubilee of The Queen’s reign in 2022.

Her Majesty The Queen expresses her warmest appreciation for Michael Ehrenreich’s attention to his duties as Lord Chamberlain. At the same time, The Queen has decorated Michael Ehrenreich with the Grand Cross of the Order of Dannebrog.

The Royal Danish House’s new Lord Chamberlain, Kim Kristensen, has been the Royal Danish House’s master of ceremonies since 2012 and, at that time, came from a position as defence attaché in Paris. Previously in his career, Kim Kristensen was the adjutant for The Queen and Prince Henrik, chief of staff of the Danish battalion in Kosovo, and chief of the Danish force in Afghanistan.
