Here is the list of the state visits to DK,
indeed not many if you compare it with other countries: Kongehuset - Aktuelt - Statsbesøg

There was also a half-private visit of President Bush in 2005, with a birthday lunch in Fredensborg. Mary was pregnant then.

I agree. Whether she is speaking English or Danish, I think she sounds very nice. Her voice has a good amount of volume, and is not too high pitched or low pitched.

I totally agree. Between, she improved her Danish very well.

SLOVENIA (short visit)

2008
ICELAND
SWITZERLAND (short visit)

I wish they would come to Canada, specifically somewhere on the west coast. No royals, except the Brits, ever come here.

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia came to Canada in 2006.

Visit to Canada of Their Majesties Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden and Queen Silvia, October 24, 2006

But I would like that CP Mary and CP Frederik come to Canada too

Yes I understood. See my post #126

My list of the official visits of the Crown Prince Couple was a response to the comments saying "Not many. They do a lot at home...". It seemed some people might not realize that State Visits and Official Visits differed so I wanted to show that the Danish Crown Prince and Crown Princess have indeed been representing Denmark aboard.

Yes those are the Official Visits abroad, plus the Official Visits to Danish Commonwealth countries Greenland and Færø Islands. There were also Olympic Games in Athens, Turin and Beijing which might not be considered official but there were some official functions with the Presidents, Danish Embassies, and in Beijing the Danish Ballet and special Danish-Chinese cultural exhibition. There were also visits to other kingdoms for King Carl Gustaf's 60th birthday, Prince Sverre Magnus' christening, King Harald's 70th birthday, the silver wedding celebrations for the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg, other special celebrations in Norway (was it Queen Sonja's birthday or a wedding anniversay?),Prince Charles' 60th birthday which are part if that private-public grey area.

I believe that part of the reason why they are visiting the US is to honor a university in Nebraska that is celebrating its 125th anniversary. Dana College is a Lutheran university that was founded by Danish immigrants.

Here is a link to their website (with a mention of the CP couple's visit):

The US has quite a few Danish Business interests as well as many families and institutions that were founded by Danish immigrants. It stands to reason that those endeavors would be supported by the current government, and the faces of those governments. It also happens to be that many Americans have an interest in royalty in general, so it is a good way to kill two birds with one stone so to speak. They royals present themselves and at the same time prove themselves worthwhile of the cost that they incur, while at the same time supporting their countrymen, and the history of the country. I think that it is an admirable way to make oneself relevant, especially in these tough economic times, when royalty might begin to seem superfluous to some. (Not me, but I can see where others might take that opinion.)

Old Town looks very charming! It looks like she was opening an exhibition. Do you know what type of exhibition it was?

It seems she hasn't had that many engagements lately. Perhaps it is due to the eastervacation.

In the calendar on the CP Couples webside two engagement are scheduled for the rest of april (this doesn't mean though that we will only see her on these dates as not all of her activities are listed in that calender).

The 28'th of april she will head the opening of the "Sun-campaign 2009" arranged by the Cancer Foundation.

The 30'th of april the CP Couple will head the opening of the exibition "For the Gods, Spirits and Ancestors" at Gl. Holtegaard.
