The royal guest list for Prince Christian’s 18th birthday celebrations

Prince Christian of Denmark will turn 18 on 15 October, with celebrations in the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

All of the Danish Royal Family will be in attendance to mark the heir to the throne’s big day. Margrethe’s sister, Princess Benedikte of of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece will also attend. It’s thought some of their children will also participate, although this hasn’t been confirmed.

So, which royals from across Europe will be in Denmark for the festivities?
