Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark and Margrethe II with their two children. 1970. Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark (Danish pronunciation: [ˈhɛnˀʁæɡ̊]; born Henri Marie Jean André de Laborde de Monpezat 11 June 1934), is the husband of Queen Margrethe II. Henrik married Margrethe, then heiress presumptive to the Danish throne, at the Naval Church of Copenhagen on 10 June 1967. The couple have two sons, Crown Prince Frederik (born 1968) and Prince Joachim (born 1969). Henrik became Prince Consort of Denmark when his wife (Queen Margrethe II) acceded to the throne of her father, King Frederick IX, on 14 January 1972. In her New Year's speech to the Danish people on 31 December 2015 Queen Margrethe announced that Prince Henrik would 'wind down' and give up most of his official duties with immediate effect from 1 January 2016. Margrethe II (Danish: Margrethe 2.; Faroese: Margreta 2.; Greenlandic: Margrethe II) (Danish pronunciation: [mɑˈɡ̊ʁæːˀd̥ə], full name: Margrethe Alexandrine Þórhildur Ingrid; born 16 April 1940) is the Queen of Denmark. She is also the supreme authority of the Church of Denmark and Commander-in-Chief of the Danish Defence Forces. A constitutional monarch, Margrethe takes no part in political decisions aside from ceremonial state functions, such as appointing the Prime Minister, and does not express political opinions. Born into the House of Glücksburg, a royal house with origins in Northern Germany, she did not become heir presumptive until 1953, when a constitutional amendment allowed women to inherit the throne. As the eldest child of Frederik IX of Denmark and Ingrid of Sweden, she succeeded her father upon his death on 14 January 1972. On her accession, Margrethe became the first female monarch of Denmark since Margaret I, ruler of the Scandinavian countries in 1375–1412 during the Kalmar Union. Having been on the Danish throne for 44 years, she is currently the second longest-reigning Danish monarch after her ancestor Christian IV. She is also the longest-reigning of the three current Scandinavian monarchs, as Sweden's Carl XVI Gustaf has reigned since 1973 and Norway's Harald V has reigned since 1991. In 1967, she married Henri de Laborde de Monpezat, with whom she has two sons: Crown Prince Frederik (born 1968) and Prince Joachim (born 1969).
