The Royal House in Aarhus
Most Danes are aware of the fact that the Royal Family enjoys to spend their holidays at Marselisborg Palace. In fact, the summer has not really started until the Royal Yacht is docked at Honnørkajen. But the Royal family is attached to the city in many other ways.
Did you know, for instance, that both the Queen and the Crown Prince have studied at Aarhus University?
Better still, Crown Princess Mary’s parents have even lived in Aarhus when the Crown Princess’ father, Professor John Donaldson, taught at the University.
Aarhus Cathedral is also very important to the Royal Family. In the summer of 1969, Prince Joachim was christened in the Cathedral, and more recently Her Majesty has created and donated both a bishop’s cape and chasubles to the Cathedral.
