Kongehusekspert after the new measurement: Give the throne to Frederick

crown Prince Frederik of denmark should soon be king, for it will serve the country best.

How does it sound from the kongehusekspert Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen, after a surprising poll made by YouGov for the B. T. recently showed that there is a growing desire in the population to queen Margrethe abdicerer and leave the throne to crown prince Frederik.

For although queen Margrethe button has taken a step wrong and has done extremely well as governor of the land, then there would be several advantages to follow the people's increasing desire.

"I think really, she should do it. Not for himself, but for the sake of the country, the family and the royal family as an institution. She would give the royal couple a flying start," says Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen and explains further:

"the Grounds to the royal family as an institution and concern for crown prince Frederik - who is as ready as he ever gets - and all the examples from abroad, where others have abdicated, it dictates that it would serve the country best if she abdicated."

According to Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen, history shows that rulers tend to become more popular, the longer they sit on the throne.

It can see both in Denmark and in the Uk, where queen Margrethe has been the majesty of the button 48 years, while the british queen Elizabeth has been on the throne for almost 68 years.

Both queens are very popular.

And if the 51-year-old crown prince Frederik to reach to get his heyday as king Frederick, the 10. with queen Mary at his side, it could, according to Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen be preferable that it would happen soon.

Within the future ruler gets too old.

otherwise, one could risk to end up in a situation like that in England, where more people want to see prince Charles' son prince William as king rather than Charles himself.

It is perhaps also one of the reasons that the 93-year-old british queen has not given the baton.

"In England they have the comical situation. Queen Elizabeth has not much scam to Charles, and people would rather have William and Kate. Our queen this easier," says Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen.

Queen Margrethe of denmark has several times denied that she will abdicate – with less health, put an end to her work as a regent.

Recently she told it in september during an interview with the Swedish newspaper Expressen:

"Not that I can imagine, no, but maybe if I was utterly hopelessly ill. My position is to sit the whole life. The mission is for life," said the Queen, who added:

"I don't feel any pressure to change my attitude. It is a duty that follows the task of following after his father. It makes you, as long as you live."

Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen dare not hazard a guess about whether queen Margrethe will abdicate or not.

But the fact is that the Danish crown prince couple in recent years has been pushed more to the fore and have been given more important duties.

Recently, they have been on a film in Paris in October, and in september took against the Swedish kronprinsessepar, who was on the film in Denmark.

And so surprised, not Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen, to the desire to see the crown prince as the king has been greater:

"It is natural, for you can't push the crown prince and crown princess further and further forward, without it gives the feeling that perhaps it is time that they took over," he says.

If queen Margrethe of denmark had to consider an abdication - perhaps because health begins to tease - then it would not be anything bad time.

"It's really a real consideration. For when should you stop? You should probably stop while still on top. While you still can and still is popular. And it is she. The enthusiasm and loyalty for her is undiminished," says Sebastian Olden-Jørgsen.

Should it happen that the Queen chooses to leave the throne to his eldest son, as it happens, however, hardly within the next months.

On april fills the Queen 80 years, and shortly after, you can celebrate the 100 anniversary of the reunification of southern Jutland with Denmark.

And the two significant events will be the Queen probably can not do without.

"I'm quite sure that she under any circumstances will be reuniting with. It means something to her, and you could well have a little feeling that it means less for the crown prince," says Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen.
