Margrethe, who became queen the day after her father King Frederick IX died in 1972, replied “absolutely not” when asked whether she would step down.

The Danish population and members of the royal family have already been celebrating the queen’s birthday ahead of her milestone event on Thursday. A street parade with horse-drawn carriages took place in the city of Aarhus last week, where Margrethe greeted 5,000 locals.

In spite of the pomp and grandeur of the festivities, Margrethe revealed that she only has one birthday wish – “to be surrounded by my family,” she said.
