It is expected that Margrethe will have a long rehabilitation period after the operation.

“Her Majesty has been afflicted with back problems for some time and the situation has recently deteriorated,” the palace said.

“After consulting the specialists at Rigshospitalet, The Queen has decided to undergo extensive surgery.

“The operation is scheduled for Wednesday 22 February at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, where The Queen will also be hospitalized afterwards.

“Consequently, a longer sequence of physical rehabilitation is to be expected.

“This means that Her Majesty’s official program will be postponed, canceled or handled by other members of the royal family in the near future.”

This undoubtedly means that Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will be busier than usual.

Frederik’s younger brother Joachim and the Queen’s sister Benedikte are also likely to take on additional tasks.

Margethe’s back problems have resulted in her having to sit at official events in recent months.
