A video report from BB: VIDEO: Dronning Margrethe og prins Henriks tempo imponerer i Indonesien | billedbladet.dk

The article says the Indonesians have been very impressed with the workload of the Regent Couple, considering their age and they have been charmed by PH who has goofed and joked.
Perhaps our Indonesian friends can confirm whether that is correct?

Of course yes!They were Impressed by H.M Queen and H.R.H Prince Consort Henrik,They were 70+ but they had a nice work,look at Indonesia President & Wife still 50 but they can't clear The smoke/haze in Sumatra and Kalimantan
though,they didn't get much attention in Jakarta itself!The Brits and Swedes get more attention than them(TV didn't show them but,Wedding of H.R.H Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Ms.Sofia Hellqvist showed and about the Pregnancy of Kate Middleton,too!)
They're so lovely.Sorry,I can't provide as much as you wanted
Stay Tuned for (Just Info):
Private Holiday in Indonesia
H.M Queen visit to D.I Yogyakarta
H.R.H Prince Consort visit to Jawa Timur(East Java)
and So More(They willn't visit my HAZE area,Because They would be Ill(My Mom just back from Egypt and when she back to Home and She was Sick)
Hoping More Visit from Monarchy to Indonesia

As we know the state visit is over but The Royal couple are going to stay in Yogyakarta for 2 more days for private visit.

Queen and entourage touched down in Yogyakarta at about 10am today.Among others, Sultan of Yogyakarta and the rest of royal family greeted Queen Margrethe and invited her for lunch.Royal collections of old manuscript, spears,keris (ceremonial knife) were shown to Queen Margrethe.She was given a feast (dishes that are only served to Royalty and certainly Sultan favourite).Sultan says that they never once talked about business but her visit is purely to "say Hello".Sultan presented her a batik with Purbonegoro motif which is made of many motifs . One of the motif means authority and wisdom while the parang motif on it means that it can only be given or worn by royal family.
Queen Margrethe told The Sultan that Queen Ingrid is a Batik collector.


Queen Margrethe also went to witness Batik making process.One of the staff said that Queen is able to tell which batik has natural or chemical dye.Queen's favourite batik are relatively expensive because they are hand crafted (take a longer time to make) and are made with natural dye.She stayed in one of the Batik stand for quite some time to admire a blue Batik that is on display. She wishes that one day there will be Indonesians who are willing to go to Denmark to teach the art of making Batik.She is really fascinated by the beauty of Batik.

She also purchased ten or more pieces of Batik.Among them are Batik with indigo colour (her favourite colour).She was given a wall decoration (Batik that is made of 24 motifs) that was framed as a souvenir.

Today press conference was held in Candi Prambanan.It is a Unesco World Heritage site and is the largest Hindu temple site in Indonesia and one of the largest in Southeast Asia.You can read more about Prambanan here.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prambanan

Queen mentioned that she is impressed with Yogyakarta and its people.She went on to say that once she saw Candi Prambanan from her car she said to herself " wow spectacular"

The Royal couple toured Candi Prambanan using golf cart.

Thanks, Iceflower, khyx19 & deroyalista

Thanks for keeping us so well updated on local news coverage, it's most appreciated.

I see the Regent Couple as usual stay on for a couple of days to have a private look at the country.

The state visit got a pretty good coverage in the news here in DK as well. Also the business part of the visit, Indonesia is an attractive market.

I also think it's very understandable that younger royals get more press coverage. There is after all the glamour factor.
But the DRF has developed a tradition for follow-up visits. I.e. we can expect M&F and Joachim and our Marie to come visiting over the next few year, in support of Danish businesses and export offensives now that a bridgehead has been established.

Here is a BB video wrapping up the visit. VIDEO: Morsom slutning på statsbesøget | billedbladet.dk
QMII has many talents but mastery of technique is not among them. There appears to have been problems with a microphone for a TV network, so QMII was given a hand held and that she isn't used to!

- He's a singular man, PH. During this state visit we have seen him at his very best and then he can suddenly do a 180 and ruin it all.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #44, 2015.
Written by Trine Larsen.

With some 250 million inhabitants and having a growing economy making Indonesia the 10th largest in the world, it's a very attractive export market for DK, not least in regards to infrastructure, energy and sanitation. As such 62 companies accompanied the Regent Couple on this visit.

Actually the Regent Couple (RC) arrived the day before the official visit was to start. They drove straight from the airport to Hotel Raffles, where the RC stayed for the duration of the visit.
After a few hours of rest the RC met with the Danish delegation and Danish expats with whom they had a formal dinner.

This was QMII's first visit to Indonesia while PH has been there some seven times before.
It was also the new Chief of Court, Michael Ehrenreich's first state visit abroad - but things seemed to have worked well.
However, the RC are getting older and QMII's back isn't what it used to be. She can sit for quite a while, but standing that's a strain on her, so a chair was kept nearby at all times when she needed to sit down.

Jakarta is now a seriously big city and that means the traffic can be reduced to a crawl, so the RC and the delegation were transported around in 50 car convoy, not to mention the countless escorting bikes.

The President, Joko Widodo, is being compared locally with President Obama, partly because the two physically resemble each other, partly because of their similar politics.
He and the first lady, Istana Merdeka, received the RC at the presidential palace for the gala dinner. All that included the usual speeches and entertainment by performers from both countries.

At the return dinner at Hotel Raffles, it was the Vice President, Jusuf Kalla, as the guest of honor.

During the three days the RC saw a lot of things! It was a quite impressive schedule but the RC seemed to be doing fine. That included a lunch with the Sultan of Yogyakarta (Jakarta and surroundings) at his palace. A man QMII later described as a very exciting and unusual man.
Here Princess Pembayun, who is the oldest of the Sultan's five daughters presented QMII with a piece of specially made batik. Batik cloth and clothes are a thing Indonesia is very well known for and such a piece of cloth can easily take six months to make by hand. And QMII did indeed buy more cloth when she attended a show during the visit.

A visit to the huge Gadjah Mada University - that is working on establishing mutual links with Danish universities.

And also a visit to a more modest part of Jakarta, where QMII visited an activity center for children and young who have modest means. That included LEGO which the local children were busy building with. QMII, who now has some experience with smaller children and no doubt LEGO as well, sat down and demonstrated a couple of her interpretations in building stuff.

But is wasn't just QMII who got the attention. PH was in fine form and goofed and made fun where he went, that is when he wasn't busy teasing his wife.
He went solo on a couple of occasions. At some point he was a guest cook, helping a couple of local chefs making ice. But something went wrong and the ice became harder than steel and when tasted the ice he pretended to drop on the spot, amusing those present.
Tennis is a big thing in Indonesia! So when PH was to put focus on health and excercise and watched a tennis match he soon took off his jacket and revealed a polo shirt from the 2012 Olympics and together with the Minister for Environment and Energy, Lars Christian Lilholt, took on a couple of local players. Now, PH has played a good deal of tennis beforehand but it wasn't serious this time and whether he thought the Minister's effort was lacking is everyone's guess but the very tall Minister got a little whack on top of the head with PH's racket.

The RC stayed on in Indonesia for a couple of days after the visit, for a little private sightseeing.
Because there was plenty too look at. Like the Buddhist Borobudur Temple, which is the largest Buddhist monument in the world. And to ensure peace and quiet for the RC, the whole temple was simply cordoned off. The temple is otherwise visited by tens of thousands of guests each day.

During the press conference the RC were asked to pose in front of the Prambanan Temple. PH thought that was a good idea a brought out his own mobile and took up position in front of QMII to take her pictures. QMII said: "You won't dare". PH retorted: "I can also stand over here and photograph you". And went over to the photographers. But they did pose together in the end.

At the interview QMII said: "It's always nice to experience something together and we have had some fantastic days and experiences. I haven't been here before, but my husband have after his travels talked so warmly and vividly about the country that I have looked very much forward to experience it together with him.
It's very, very amusing to come here. It's a fine place with many tremendously sweet people, who have given us a warm and friendly welcoming. It's also amusing (QMII's all time favorite expression) to experience such a huge city as Jakarta. It doesn't look like anything one is used to seeing at home, that you can safely say".

PH will travel on to Vietnam, While QMII returns home, there is work waiting for her at home: "I would hardly have time for staying here longer. It would have been difficult to find the time. My husband's travel will be long and I simply couldn't find the time for that".

Mange tak, as always, Muhler, for your translation and photo links! It was fascinating to see-and read- the report on HM visit; always entertaining to watch HM Prince Consort's take on kingly behaviour! Having been lucky enough to visit Vietnam, I can certainly understand why Prince Henrik has decided to prolong his Asian stay, but I think Denmark will be much quieter without him
