Royal cousins have reunited in Denmark as the children of Queen Margrethe of Denmark, Princess Benedikte, and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece joined together at Graasten Palace.

The Danish Royal Family released several images of what they called the “cousin-cousin” meeting at the palace that saw family members gather together after travelling from Greece, Germany and the US.

Queen Margrethe, Princess Benedikte and Queen Anne-Marie were all in attendance as some of their children visited the palace for a summer stay. Both Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim of Denmark and their spouses attended, as did all three of Benedikte’s children, Gustav, 7th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, Princess Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

Four out of Queen Anne-Marie’s five children flew into Denmark to spend time with family: Princess Alexia, Prince Nikolaos, Princess Theodora and Prince Philippos. Crown Prince Pavlos was unable to attend.
