“The cancellation is based on the current situation with infection in society and the uncertainty that remains about the development of Covid-19. The decision has also been made in respect of the many partners involved in a celebration of this size. A work that took place in the coming weeks and which would be extremely difficult to carry out,” the royal house explained.

Plans to celebrate the royal mom of four’s milestone birthday were announced in early December. Aside from the now-canceled gala dinner, the program includes two exhibit openings, as well as the opening of a new knowledge center at the University of Copenhagen. The Mary Foundation’s previously announced birthday celebration has been postponed to later this year.
