The King of Denmark, of course, was also the King of Iceland until 1944 when Iceland became an independent republic.

When I saw the first pix of this dinner I thought someone had died. 2 princesses in black - at a State Dinner! I thought for one moment the Queen had joined in but it turned out to be dark green.

Thank goodness for Benedicte!

Deeply disappointing.

Looks black in the pix I've seen but regardless still really dismal apart from Benedickte.

No gala feel about this State Banquet.

It's a shame the CP couple weren't at the welcoming.
Some lovely pictures from the dinners arrival.

Icelandic is incomprehensible to most Scandinavians, except perhaps for the Faroe Islands. - These two languages are as close to the language spoken here some 1.000 years ago, because that's when the islands were settled and due to the isolation, (and a deliberate policy) the languages have not evolved nearly as much as Swedish, Danish and Norwegian.

A nice BB video of Mary and the First Lady visiting a kindergarten.

M&F are very much to be the "tour-guides" on this visit.

- I noticed in the video of the DRF arriving that Joachim and our Marie were congratulated with their daughter
Joachim, with a twinkle in his eye, telling how mademoiselle Athena appreciated the guards lining up in her honor...

Just a little tidbit about the first lady of Iceland, she is Canadian and I believe she met her husband when they were going to university.

BB reports that CP Frederik was like a fish in water today, and not just was he a good host for the President Couple, but very much also a good host for his wife Mary

Gallery from The Crown Prince Couples and President Couple's visit at the Copenhagen Hospitality College:

Nice gallery from today's many events:
