"The Crown Prince's family is surrounded by modern art in their home at Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg," it reads.

"Where ten Danish artists moved in before their Royal Highness almost 10 years ago with the task of decorating a number of the palace's many rooms. Last year, another work of art was added by the Swedish photographer Miriam Backstrom, who in the form of a series of tapestries has created a modern interpretation of one. The work fuses with the interior from 1828, which is an example of the Danish Empire's style, characterised by, among other things, painted stucco ceilings."

The third image shows intricately knitted rugs, originally designed from 2D images. "Miriam Backstrom produced a number of digital images," the family explained. "Which have subsequently been transformed into the woven rugs that now hang in the Ladies' Hall in Frederik VIII's Palace. The room is used by the Crown Prince and Crown Princess for representative purposes.

"The tapestries in Frederik VIII's Palace are the newest in the royal castles. This week it was marked on Kongehuset's social media that it is 20 years since Professor Bjorn Norgaard's tapestries were hung up in the Knights' Hall at Christiansborg Castle."

Prince Frederik and Princess Mary have been isolating at Amalienborg Palace with their four children since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Typically, the children (Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine) would have been at Lemania-Verbier International School in Switzerland, but the couple were forced to pull them out so that they could return to Denmark before the country closed its borders.
