Denmark’s Prince Joachim and Princess Marie have spent two days in Iceland this week, to celebrate 100 years of the Danish-Icelandic Society.

The couple arrived on Thursday evening, where they were welcomed with a reception by the Society at Nordic House in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik.

On Friday, it was another day spent in the capital with Joachim and Marie being given a tour of the city to highlight the architectural influence Denmark has had. They were given a tour of the new opera house Harpa that has been partly designed by Ólafur Eliasson, a Danish-Icelandic architect.

Prince Joachim praised the country and their architecture coupled with nature to the media, while Princess Marie said this was not the couple’s first visit to Iceland, that they have previously visited ‘under the radar’.

On Friday night the official celebration of the Society’s centenary was held at the Hotel Holt, which was also attended by former President Vigdís Finnbogadóttir. A concert was given after the dinner.
