DescriptionRoyal House of Denmark
Her Majesty the Queen

Denmark has a Constitutional Monarchy, which means that the monarch cannot independently perform political acts. Although The Queen signs all Acts of Parliament, these only come into force when they have been countersigned by a Cabinet Minister. As Head of State, The Queen participates in the formation of a new government. After consultation with representatives of the political parties, the Party Leader who has the support of the largest number of seats in the Folketing, (the Danish Parliament), is invited to form a government. Once it has been formed, the monarch will formally appoint it. Additionally, it is The Queen who is the formal Head of the Government and therefore presides over the State Council, where the Acts which have been passed by the Folketing, are signed into law. The Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs report regularly to The Queen to advise of the latest political developments. The Queen hosts official visits by foreign Heads of State and pays State Visits abroad. The Queen receives every Ambassador from foreign countries and also formally appoints and dismisses civil servants. The Queen's main tasks are to represent Denmark abroad and to be a figurehead at home. The Queen performs the latter task by accepting invitations to open exhibitions, attending anniversaries, inaugurating bridges etc.
