THEMES FOR STATE VISITS FROM FINLAND

Royal Couple offers President of Finland, HE Sauli Niinistö Väinämö and Mrs Jenni Elina Haukio welcome to Denmark on 4-5th April 2013.

Presidential plane lands on 4 April in Vilhelm Lauritzen terminal, Copenhagen Airport, where the royal couple and the royal family will receive Presidential couple. There will then be welcome at Fredensborg Palace with an escort from Garderhusarregimentet. In the evening the royal couple hosted a gala dinner at Fredensborg Palace.

The program of the Finnish state visit reflects the fact that Finland and Denmark historically has a long value community and for many years have had mutual business interests and cultural exchanges. In both countries, there is great interest in clean-tech and green growth in these years, which focuses on the program of visits to Danish companies in this sector. During the visit, President and HRH Crown Prince attend 'Roundtable discussions' in Danish Industry with companies from both countries.

The significant cultural exchange between Denmark and Finland also reflected in the program. First Lady and HRH Crown Princess will visit the School of Architecture and the School of Design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools in Holmen, focusing on study projects on sustainability. During the visit, First Lady, among other things visit the exhibition of the young Finnish photographer Nelli Palomäki at Ordrupgaard and a special exhibition design by the Finnish designer Kaj Franck Design Museum Denmark in Bredgade in Copenhagen. President pair shall also visit Royal Copenhagen.

Another important field of interest for both countries is education. Therefore, the First Lady and Crown Princess guest Ørestaden School to see a modern, newly built school with new learning methods as the focal point in a creative environment.

There have previously been Finnish state visit to Denmark in 1977, 1983, 1994 and most recently in 2001 when President Tarja Halonen visited. The royal couple was on a state visit to Finland in 1973.

About the gifts president Sauli Niinistö and his wife Jenni Haukio gave to their hosts, at least these:
- the queen and prince Henrik: The Claritas vase, designed by Timo Sarpaneva
- the crown prince couple: The Aalto Flower vase, designed by Alvar Aalto
- the children: Moomin Dish Set
- Querida, the dachshund of the queen and prince Henrik: a finnish raincoat for dogs, with greetings from Lennu, the dog of the presidential couple.

I have just watched the news on TV and it shows a little clip of Mary and Frederik and our Primeminister arriving to the dinner. It wasn't much I could see, but Mary had a nice hairdo and it look like she wears a blue dress.

Margrethe, Henrik, Frederik, Mary, and Marie are all wearing the Finnish Order of the White Rose. I can't see Joachim, but I would assume he is as well.

Margrethe is wearing the dress she wore during the 2007 State Visit from Sweden. I can't see her tiara.

Mary is wearing a dress she first wore to a wedding 2004 and then she had it modified to it's current state and wore it to Vietnam in 2009. She is wearing her Wedding tiara.

Marie looks to be wearing a new dress and she's of course wearing her floral tiara.

I just found out that the Finnish First Lady is 5 years younger than Mary, 1 year younger than Marie. She seems so mature (I mean this in the best sense).
She has an impressive CV (especially compared with the CV of Princess Marie). And she writes poems!
Question to Finnish posters: Is she popular in Finland?
