The Queen presented the Queen's Watch, a bi-annual tradition begun by her father King Frederik IX to honour outstanding service. At Rosenborg Castle there was a military parade and the Queen presented the watch to Royal Guard Tim Thestrup Foss, although, as with last year, the Queen sat through the ceremonial event with a pair of crutches beside her.
