Wednesday 5 January 2011 | Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik and Crown Prince Henrik attended the final New Year's Court at Christiansborg Palace today for the officers from Defence and Emergency Management, the First, Second and Third rank classes and invited representatives of major national organisations and each of their patronages. The Queen and Prince Henrik arrived in the golden coach escorted by the Guard Hussar Regiment Horse Cortage.

The coach is pulled by six draught horses with two outriders. Following the coach is an escort of 45 guard hussars. The golden coach, also known as "King Cstian VIII's coach", was built by coach builder Henry Fife in 1840, and is plated with 24-carat gold leaf. Below the carriage waiting at Amalienborg:
