The Crown Prince Couple started the national holiday with laying wreaths at The Monument for Denmark’s International Effort in Kastellet, Copenhagen. The Minister for Defence and Speaker of Parliament gave speeches at the monument.
The couple also attended a church service at Holmens Kirke to honour the soldiers Denmark has lost during the last few years.
The couple also visited Christiansborg Palace Square, where Crown Prince Fredrik inspected a parade force of 1200 soldiers.
Flag Day has been marked in Denmark each year since 2009 to honour troops who are currently deployed or have served in the armed forces in the past.
This follows as Crown Princess Mary gave the opening speech at a human rights forum in Copenhagen last month.
Sharing an image of the royal delivering her moving speech and sharing a message of hope on Instagram, the Danish royal family said: “Human rights, love and world goals were in focus when Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess gave the opening speech at the Copenhagen 2021 Human Rights Forum in the UN city of Copenhagen on Monday afternoon.
“Copenhagen 2021 is the common name for the LGBTI + events WorldPride and EuroGames, which take place in Copenhagen on 12-22 August.
“The purpose of the Human Rights Forum is to put human rights and inclusion in relation to LGBTI + people on the agenda.”
Crown Princess Mary is also going to visit Italy this week to participate in the Salone del Mobile, a fair celebrating art and architecture.
Crown Princess Mary married Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark in 2004.
They met in Australia whilst the Prince was visiting for the 2000 Summer Olympics.
Mary and Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, share children Prince Christian, 15, Princess Isabella, 14, Prince Vincent, 10, and 10-year-old Princess Josephine.
In July Mary was made a regent by her mother-in-law, Queen Margrethe II.
