The couple will first have a private lunch with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary at Frederik VIII’s Palace in Amalienborg, before the group pays a visit to the UNICEF emergency distribution centre in the Danish capital.

The purpose of the visit is to “maintain global attention on the crisis in East Africa”, where a devastating famine is currently overpowering the region. The distribution centre in Copenhagen is UNICEF’s worldwide coordination centre for their humanitarian efforts in East Africa, and provide food, water, vaccines and other medical supplies to the areas most affected.

This will be the Cambridges’ first official visit to Denmark, and their first official visit to a European nation.

Crown Princess Mary visited the Horn of Africa in August this year to bring attention to the humanitarian efforts.
