Rough translation:

Press Release

State Visit of Their Royal Highnesses the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess to The Royalty of Denmark.

October 17, 2003

On the invitation of Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark, Their Royal Highnesses the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess will arrive in Denmark on October 20, 2003 for a 3 day State Visit. They will be accompanied by Mrs Lydie Polfer, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs and by Mr Henri Grethen, Minister of Economices and Minister of Transport.

The Grand Ducal couple and the Luxembourg delegation will be greeted at Copenhagen Airport on Monday, October 20, 2003 by Her Majesty the Queen and his Royal Highness The Prince Consort as well as by the Crown Prince, Princess Alexandra and Princess Benedikte.

After military honours and presentation of the personalities, the Grand Ducal couple will be driven to Fredensborg Palace for a private meal.

During the afternoon, the Head of State for Luxembourg will be informed about the biotechnology carried out by Novozymes Corporation, a world leader in enzyme production and industrial microorganisms. The program of Her Royal Highness the Grand Duchess will be to visit the celebrated Louisiana musem which has house collections of a number of Danish artists like Robert Jacobsen and Richard Mortensen. It owns also a considerable collection of sculptors (dont 13 œuvres de Giacometti?).

The Grand Ducal couple will take the occasion to discover together the treasures of Frederiksborg Castle, situated about 40 km outside of Copenhagen. Besides the musem, they will visit the chapel of the Order of the Chevalerie which contains the identities of those people admitted to the Order of the Elephant.

A gala dinner will be offered by Her Majesty the Queen in Fredensborg Palace to honour those from Luxembourg who are visiting for the first time.

On Tuesday, October 21, 2003, Their Royal Highnesses the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess with His Royal Highness the Crown Prince will to to North Jutland where they will visit with the Mayor of Aalborg.

In the meantime, the government members of Luxembourg will visit with their counterparts in Copenhagen. Lydie Polfer, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs will visit with Per Stig Moller and the Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. She will meet with other parliamentary members of the Danish Foreign Affairs Ministry. Minister Henri Grethen will visit with Mr. Bendt Bendtsen, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Economics.

The Head of State will take part in brief ceremony with the Mayor at the University of Aalborg with His Royal Highness the Crown Prince. This university has the reputation for political science and the promotion of dialog with regional industry and public authorities with a view of achieving intense cooperation and mutual benefits. At the Faculty of "Engineering and Science", His Royal Highness the Grand Duke will be invited to inaugurate a new research laboratory.

Her Royal Highness the Grand Duchess, in this time, will visit the "Bakkegarden" kindergarden which is considered to be a model for integrating handicapped children.

A museum for art in North Jutland developed by architects Elissa and Alvar Aalto and Jean-Jacques Baruël will also be visited by the Grand Ducal couple. In addition to the permanent collection, this museum presents a temporary exposition of Picasso, who had a long friendship and cooperation with the Norwegian sculptor Carl Nesjar.

After a brief visit to the cultural and commercial center of Aalborg in lieu of a review of the economics and culture, the Grand Ducal couple will return to Copenhagen to debut an evening of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Luxembourg under the direction of Emmanuel Krivine, who will give a concert for the Grand Ducal couple and their Royal Guests. The concert will follow a reception.

On the third day of the State Visit, His Royal Highness the Grand Duke will have an occasion to entertain the President and members of the Danish Parliament. He will address as well the Commercial Confederation of Danish Industry who represent the worldwide danish interests in industry and commerce. Mrs the Deputy Prime Minister Lydie Polfer and Mr. Minister Henri Grethen will also carry out exchanges with representives of the Confederation.

The program of Her Royal Highness the Grand Duchess will take in a visit to the manufacturer of "Royal Copenhagen" porcelain which was founded in May 1755 under the patronage of Queen Juliane Marie.

An official reception with the mayor of Copenhagen will close the officical program of this State Visit.

Before their return to Luxembourg, the Grand Ducal couple accompanied by the Queen and the Prince Consort will go to Odense, to visit and view the exposition where the paintings of Her Majesty the Queen Margarethe II are on show. This exposition presents "Brandts Klaedefabrik", an old method of making clothes.

I have a few comments:
1.) How come Princess Alexandra is in the welcoming committe at the airport?
2.) Is Mary going along to Jutland? Imagine all the photo opportunities?
3.) Any suggestions for corrections to my translation gratefully accepted.

Frederiksberg is probably the Swedish translation of borg. Berg means mountain in Swedish it's the Swedish equivalent of "borg"...merm....

I think we need a contribution from paulette .... ie: pictures of "the three castles Fredensborg, Frederiksborg and Frederiksberg".

And, an indication of where each of the 3 castles is located (relative to downtown Amalienborg) :) B)

Please tell me she didn't get introduced to the Grand Ducal couple wearing pants! If she did, it's a shame, as all the other women were in skirts/dresses

Thanks Josefine for the pictures. Very nice.

It looks skirt to me. The lighting wasn't great.

By the way, why did the CP look awkward with his own wife-to-be? Look at that hand-in-a-pocket gesture. as oppose to an earlier picture (see page 1) of him and Princess Alexandra. He looked relax and open in that picture. Anybody see what I saw?

Thank you lynnredbug, you're right about the lighting. The dark tights just made it look very pantsish to me (hence my post). I'm hoping for a clearer (better lit&#33 picture of her and CP Frederik.
But you're right, he does look more at ease w/ Alexandra. Trouble in paradise already?

Looks to me like the fashion selection committee is picking their way through shades of blue that might fit to Mary's skin (that isn't blessed by birth with the olive hue that Alexandra's has). This one would do the trick if there had been a necklace. The engagement dress was darker and didn't do it for me.

Thank you for posting all those pictures, Josefine

I hope you didn't mind, I copied some with sashes and added to the "Sashes from Denmark" topic.

The dress is better but the hair... ...not so sure about the hair, again. Maybe it's just the angle.

Mary looks really good, but the absence of any jewelry whatsoever is rather conspicuous. At least some earrings? I wonder if she was given any jewelry for her engagement?

I have to agree with those of you who have mentioned a lack of jewellery has made the occasion less than glittering for Mary. Some dangly earrings and a beautiful necklace in emerald or ruby would've completed Mary's outfit. And if she didn't have the earrings, at least a nice sparkly necklace. There was something incomplete to her outfit. I liked the dress; simple and elegant with the band of beading at the top. But the hair left much to be desired. It reminded me of the thirties/forties/fifties hair do - and not many people can pull that look off. Princess Grace could've pulled that look off, but not Mary.

Forgot to add that I'm not sure I like Princess Alexandra's hair either. It looks funny with the tiara. Maybe that bun on top of her head would be okay without the tiara, but not with.

It seems to me that the only women who got their hair dos right at this gala dinner were Queen Margrethe and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa.
