Royalty postcard

I could not resist, the blog is ment for lighthouse postcards, but this beautiful card is great. I received this beautiful card for my daughter, she is 5 and she loves princesses and this card has members of the Danish Royal House. Margrethe II (born 16 April 1940) is the Queen regnant of the Kingdom of Denmark. She is the eldest daughter of King Frederick IX and Queen Ingrid of Denmark. In 1967, she married Henri de Laborde de Monpezat, with whom she has two sons: Crown Prince Frederik (born 1968) and Prince Joachim (born 1969). When her father Frederick IX died in 1972, Margrethe succeeded him as Queen of Denmark and became the first female monarch of Denmark since Margaret I, ruler of the Scandinavian countries in 1375-1412 during the Kalmar Union.
 The stamp on card is perfect, it is issued in 2012 and it is dedicated to the 40th Jubilee of the Queen Margrethe II. She officially marked 40 years as head of Europe’s oldest monarch.
