Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II has announced her decision to abdicate the throne next month.

The 83-year-old monarch, whose role is largely ceremonial, made the announcement on Sunday during her New Year’s speech.

She said she would step down on Jan. 14, which is the anniversary of the 1972 death of her father, King Frederik IX, and her succeeding him on the throne.
