Portraits of the Royal Family

The official portraits may only be used for editorial purposes or by organizations in accordance with written permission from the Royal House.

The Royal Family’s official portraits are basically reserved for the Royal House, state and municipal organizations and patronages. This applies to both civil and gala portraits. In connection with publication, the new portraits are sent to the media and can be reproduced in connection with editorial coverage. The portraits may not be republished or archived without the permission of the Royal House.

Only exceptional permission is granted for republication of the official portraits. For the Royal Family’s participation in interviews, permission can be granted individually.


If use of the official portraits is desired, send a request to kom@kongehuset.dk.
