A significant link exists between The Anglo-Danish Society and Queen Alexandra. The Society was founded on 17th December 1924 with the encouragement of the Queen, formerly Princess Alexandra of Denmark and the eldest daughter of Denmark’s King Christian IX, who married Queen Victoria’s son and heir, King Edward VII. On 10th March 2023 it will have been exactly 160 years since the then Princess Alexandra married King Edward VII and became Queen Alexandra.

Queen Alexandra was the first to sign the Society’s guestbook in April 1925. She died at Sandringham in November that same year.

Frances Dimond is a member of the Anglo-Danish Society and has a keen interest in Queen Alexandra. She has spent many years researching her book, including in the Royal Archives, determined to attempt to rectify the negative or dismissive attitude towards Queen Alexandra which had gained credence in some other works. Her book aims to show the Queen’s true character and accomplishments.

For sign-ups or any questions about the event please contact Lone Mohr Curtis via [email protected]. We would be grateful if you could please sign up – and pay for – your attendance at this event by no later than 1st March 2023.

Payments should be made by bank transfer to our account: Sort Code: 55-70-13, account number: 78325285. Please use your name and the event as references for your payment.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
