Their mother loved dance and music, her children have inherited her passion and that shared devotion to the arts all came together as the daughters of Ingrid of Denmark presented awards that carries her name in Copenhagen. Queen Margrethe II, Queen Anne-Marie and Princess Benedikte shared the duties as they handed over the Queen Ingrid Music Grants in the Danish capital on October 26th.

The grants were set up in 2005 by the Charitable Society of the Queen Ingrid Memorial and they are presented every two years to young artists specialising in dance and music.

This year's recipients were jazz singer, Sinne Eeg, and Royal Ballet soloist, Andreas Kaas.
