Amalienborg Palace is the ceremonial home of the Danish Royal Family. This classical palace can be found in the heart of Copenhagen complete with its own large square and a monumental equestrian statue of Amalienborg’s founder, King Frederick V.
Every day and night, Amalienborg is guarded by Denmark’s own Royal Life Guards. Several years ago K&C produced their own version of these guardsmen in their special ceremonial ‘scarlet’ tunics and bearskin caps (similar to Britain’s own Royal Foot Guard Regiments). On most occasions however when the Guard parades at Amelienborg they wear a different parade tunic… the Navy Blue double-breasted one… That’s usually what most visitors see when the ‘Changing of the Guard’ ceremony takes place each day the monarch is in residence.
