The mother of Christian of Denmark, Isabella of Denmark, Vincent of Denmark and Josephine of Denmark would also state there the inspiration and admiration she has for these queens. “As crown princess, you are faced with the challenge of having to occupy a very central place in a foreign country,” said the princess of Denmark. “You have to learn a new language and a new culture, while many eyes are on you,” she continued. “There is a strong feeling that there is a lot to do. But also great opportunities to shape your own role,” she concludes.
