Procalamation of Enthronement of Queen Margrethe II
Denmark stopped anointing its kings at lavish ceremonies after the introduction of democracy as part of the limited monarchical constitution of 1848 rather than absolute monarchy (1660-1848). The anointing of kings was seen as being part of an absolute monarchy and was thus abolished.
The procedure for enthronement:
The new monarch is proclaimed from the balcony of the parliament building (Christiansborg). It happens on the morning after the death of the old monarch. The PM says three times, symbolically facing three compas directions*: “King (or Queen) is dead. Long live King (or Queen)”.
Then the new monarch makes a short address and reveals his/hers motto.
The comes the ninefold hurrah.
There is also a state council meeting in connection with the proclamation.
