Happy New Year 2024 LIVE: Danish Queen Margrethe II surprises nation with abdication after 52-year reign

Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II, who has been in power for over 50 years, has surprisingly announced her decision to abdicate in 2024, as reported by CNN.

In her annual New Year’s Eve address televised in Denmark, the 83-year-old queen revealed her intention to pass on the crown to her son, Crown Prince Frederik.

In illustrating her perspective on the future, Queen Margrethe II cited her personal experience with a back surgery she underwent in February 2023.

“In two weeks time, I have been Queen of Denmark for 52 years. Such an amount will leave its mark on anybody–and also on me! The time takes its toll, and the number of ‘ailments’ increases. One cannot undertake as much as one managed in the past,” the queen said, according to CNN.

Korean actor Cho Yeo-jeong remembers late ‘Parasite’ co-star Lee Sun-kyun in New Year’s post

“Parasite” actor Cho Yeo-jeong paid tribute to Lee Sun-kyun in the New Year, remembering her late co-star as “a warm and good” artiste.

Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite” was a stinging satire on class divides in South Korea and etched history in 2020 when it became the first non-English film to win an Academy Award for best picture. It also bagged three more Oscars, including best director trophy for Bong.

“I will never forget the honour of being together (with you). I will never forget (your) cheerfulness of always making everyone smile. I will be a warm and good actor like you. I’ll embrace a new year that is not pleasant. I’ll try to do well,” she wrote in the caption.

Cho played Choi Yeon-gyo, the Park family matriarch, opposite Lee, who essayed the role of Park Dong-ik, the Park family head, in the genre-defying movie. (PTI)
