Denmark's monarch, Queen Margrethe, 82, is currently recovering from back surgery that she underwent in February.

The queen is expected to return to royal duties this month, when she makes an appearance at Christian's IX's Palace at Amalienborg on Sunday to mark her 83rd birthday.

While Queen Margrethe will resume her duties, the palace previously said: "The Queen's rehabilitation is going well, but there will still be a number of major tasks that the Queen cannot complete as planned in the coming months. Information is given about this on an ongoing basis."
