He encouraged the king as long as possible to maintain the English alliance, which led to the marriage between George II of Great Britain's daughter with the king's elder son.

Around 1740, Count Christian Ernst's preference swung towards France and he ceased his influence.

During a trip through Europe accompanied by Chancellor Ulrik Adolf Holstein, the Crown Prince decided on Margravine Sophia Magdalene, one of the ladies-in-waiting at the court of the Saxon-Polish queen Christiane Eberhardine in the Castle Pretzsch.

Sophia Magdalene came from a minor margraviate (not greater than Lolland-Falster) of the Hohenzollern dynasty where able consciousness was inversely proportional to the funds; half of the land was mortgaged, and her father died young.

The marble monument was completed in 1768, but not installed at Roskilde Cathedral until 1777.

The monument includes a sarcophagus and two female figures, "Sorgen" ("Sorrow") and "Berømmelsen" ("Fame").

His plans to make their only daughter, Princess Louise, Queen of Sweden never came to fruition.

There were numerous building activities connected to Christian VI, and he was probably the greatest Danish builder of the 18th century. Among their works are Christiansborg Palace (built 1732–1742, burned in 1794, rebuilt), Hirschholm Palace a summer country retreat in North Zealand in current day Hørsholm municipality (built 1737–1739, demolished 1812) and the Eremitage (built 1734–1736, still standing).

Christian's foreign policy was a peaceful one and Denmark kept strictly neutral.

In both trade and commerce, it was an age of advancement; some new companies and banks were founded.

He got a better education and acquired more knowledge than his father and grandfather.

As Crown Prince he was allowed by his father to find a wife by himself.
