In Hanoi, Vietnam, Prince consort Henrik of Denmark visited his childhood house. Queen Margrethe II, the crown prince and his wife Princess Mary accompanied him.
Prince Henrik spent the first 5 years of his life in Hanoi, then French Indochina. His family returned to France in 1939 before returning to Indochina.

Wonderful pictures!!! Thanks to everyone who posted them.

The family looks happy and relaxed, although, clearly a bit unused to the heat and the humidity of a tropical climate.

The rickshaw tour seemed like fun. Although, I am not sure about Princess Mary's pants, they seem tight. The dress for the evening reception was blah and the shoes didn't go together with the dress.

How wonderful for Prince Henrik to show his family the home where he spent some very happy years, its great to see him at the centre of attention on the first day in Vietnam.
All four seem to enjoy the bicycle ride and the walk, they are all happy and relaxed in each others company.

A nostalgic trip for Prince Henrik, emotional, I'm sure. The queen is totally happy seeing him enjoy this visit. He's no doubt giving tidbits of personal information as they go from one place to the next.

I particularly noticed the break of protocol, as both the queen and prince took the arm of the crown prince and princess so they could walk four abreast as they neared what must have been the family home. Prince Henrik looks as though he wants them to hear everything he has to say about it.

He looks so happy, and the queen is very content seeing this.

Meeting at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam, 02 November 2009. During the visit, the Danish Royal Family will enjoy cultural activities held by the Danish embassy in Vietnam and visit development assistance projects which help reduce the country’s poverty. Denmark and Vietnam established diplomatic relations in 1971.

Its very interesting to see that Mary doesnt have events alone. It would be nice maybe for at least one event.

Stunning Stunning outfit from Mary. The presidents wife is quite small.
I wish Mary would have worn her wedding tiara.

You know now that you mention it, it does seem a bit strange about the dress code for this event. IMO, the Queen's dress (or skirt & top, I can't decide which it is), did not warrant a tiara. It was very nice but not "fancy" enough. On another note, I think it's wonderful that Prince Henrik is visiting the country that holds so many fond memories for him. And it's wonderful that he can experience it with his family.

It is very odd. Mary is wearing a really nice evening gown and no tiara or major jewelry and the Queen is wearing a two piece with a tiara. But hey, if your Queen I guess you get to wear a tiara whenever you want. Which tiara is that anyway? I liked Marys hat the other day. The must be melting though, It can get so hot over there.

It's a bandeau of daisies with tuqioses betweeen. The Queen inherited it from her mother. I think Mary has not worn a tiara because her Wedding tiara would to big compared to the the tiara of the Queen. It was also sometimes the Case at a State Visit of Queen Beatrix, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima to a southern Country (don't remember which one) where Beatrix was the only one wearing a tiara (the diamond badeau in this case).
