Succession fans joke that the Queen of Denmark made her grandchildren “Logan Roy.”

successor Fans can’t help but compare the Queen of Denmark to Brian Cox’s domineering HBO character, and many joke that she treated her grandkids to “Logan Roy.”

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark’s decision to strip the four children of her second son, Prince Joachim, of their royal titles was announced on Wednesday (September 28) in a statement shared by the royal palace.

“With her decision, Her Majesty the Queen wants to create the framework for the four grandchildren to be able to organize their own lives to a much greater extent, without being restricted by the special considerations and duties that formal membership of the Danish royal family entails it concerns an institution,” the statement said.

Since the news broke, amused Twitter users have pointed out the perceived similarities between the actions of the monarch and the popular drama’s ruthless patriarchal figure, Logan Roy.

Over the course of three seasons of the Emmy-winning drama, Logan’s four spoiled grown children – played by Jeremy Strong (Kendall), Kieran Culkin (Roman), Sarah Snook (Shiv) and Alan Ruck (Connor) – compete for their callous father’s affections to be chosen to succeed his media conglomerate.

However, at the end of the third series, Logan betrays his children with his decision not to proceed with the sale of his company, with many fans drawing comparisons between fictional events and the Queen of Denmark’s recent decision.

“She did them all in real life with Logan Roy,” one fan tweeted, while another shared one successor Cast photo alongside caption: “She was watching HBO.”

A third shared a photo of Logan’s nephew Greg (Nicholas Braun) with his line, “Well my grandfather passed my legacy on to Greenpeace.” Others simply shared gifs of Logan’s character.

The title change applies to Prince Nikolai, 23, Prince Felix, 20, Prince Henrik, 13, and Princess Athena, 10, who will instead bear their titles Count and Countess of Monpezat from January 1, 2023.

While the titles previously used by the Queen’s grandchildren “are being phased out”, the statement said all four grandchildren “retain their place in the order of succession”. They currently occupy places seven to ten in the succession. Succession fans joke that the Queen of Denmark made her grandchildren “Logan Roy.”
