That Looks Familiar! Crown Prince Frederik Inspects LEGO Replica of Palace During First Day of Chinese Visit
Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik began a four-day working visit to the People’s Republic of China on Saturday, where he was treated to a sight he is incredibly familiar with: the Amalienborg palace complex, albeit made out of LEGO.
The LEGO model is part of the A Royal Modern Household exhibition that is being held at the Danish Culture Centre in Beijing. The exhibition tells the story of the recent restoration of Frederik VIII’s Palace, the Crown Princely Family home, and the modern artworks commissioned for the interior.
Earlier in the day, the Crown Prince was present at the final of the Sino-Nordic Cup Football Tournament put together by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs between football teams from China, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Frederik cheered the Danish team on to victory, before heading on to the pitch for some kicks himself.
The day concluded with a reception hosted by the Danish Ambassador to China, A. Carsten Damsgaard.Filed under Denmark
