The Royal House of Denmark’s annual report 2021
Today, the annual report for the Royal House of Denmark’s activities in 2021 is released.
During the past year, the Royal House of Denmark continued to be affected by the coronavirus situation, which meant that a number of planned arrangements or events had to be cancelled or postponed. However, this does not change the fact that 2021 was also a year in which many events could be carried out.
Her Majesty The Queen and the royal family thus took part last year in more than 400 program items, including a state visit to Germany, several business promotional campaigns, historical celebrations in South Jutland and Greenland and a joyful visit to the Faroe Islands. In 2021, the royal family also celebrated a family event when His Royal Highness Prince Christian was confirmed in Fredensborg Palace Church after a year-long postponement.
The year also featured a number of new initiatives in the Royal House of Denmark’s organization. Among other things, the Royal House of Denmark adopted a comprehensive action plan that will make the Court more sustainable and that also affects the way in which all employees work.
The Royal House of Denmark’s annual report 2021 consists of – in addition to the narrative – the annual accounts for The Royal Civil List and Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and The Crown Princess’s annuity.
The balance sheet for the Civil List showed a surplus of approximately 1.7 million DKK. The year’s result reflects that 2021 was once again a year with a lower level of costs than normal. The positive accounting result must be seen in connection with the fact that the Royal House of Denmark utilized the lower level of costs to, among other things, invest in additional modernization and future-proofing of the Royal House of Denmark’s digital infrastructure.
