Denmark's Queen Margrethe has created the costumes and sets for a film adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 1838 fairytale "The Wild Swans," she told reporters on Friday.Why can't we have a creative queen like that?
The 68-year-old monarch has in recent years designed costumes and decor for several ballets inspired by the famed Danish author, and has since the 1980s delved into painting, drawing and book illustrations, as well as scenography for theatre and television production.
This is the first time she has worked on a film.
