This gala takes place every three year and honors the soldiers receiving the King Christian X Medal for Good Service awarded to soldiers with more than 25 years of service. The award was created on September 26th 1945, on King Christian X’s birthday, and is awarded on the same day each year.

When they arrived, Prince Joachim told photographers he was looking forward to the evening as he works in the military himself. Indeed, he works daily a special advisor on developing a new full-force concept that will strengthen the use of volunteers in the Home Guard and personnel of the reserve, without being paid obviously, and he is Colonel in the Reserve.
