Being a monarch isn't fun anymore
“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being a monarch just isn't fun anymore,” she might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that she may branch out into other creative fields she is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouMargrethe.”
