Frederik & Anne Launch New Save the Children Campaign
TRH Crown Prince Frederik and The Princess Royal today joined forces in Copenhagen for the launch of the Save the Children Fund’s new campaign, “Knit a Hat,” at the Fund’s centre in Copenhagen.
The two royals, who are both patrons of the Save the Children Fund, brought along a knitted hat to donate, in keeping with the new campaign. “Knit a Hat” aims to reduce infant mortality rates in developing African countries, where there are many cases of preventable disases like pnuemonia, diarrhea and measles. A press release from the Danish branch of Save the Children, Red Barnet, stated that “even in Africa, there are cold nights” which explains the campaign of donating knitted caps to be sent to African children.
The cap brought by Prince Frederik was not made by him though. “I would love to have knitted it myself. But it is not true,” he said in the press conference.
The Princess Royal is currently in Copenhagen for the 121st IOC Session and Olympic Congress, which runs until October 9th. Read more about the IOC event here.British Royals, Danish Royals
