This post is to be moved, because the thread about about Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla visiting DK is unfortunately locked....

A few details:

One of the places they will visit is Gyldenrisparken -a nonprofit housing area, mainly for low-income families, singles, elderly, youths under education and young families. - I'm sure you are familiar with that sort of things in your own countries, it's just to make sure you know what I'm talking about.
Such housing areas can vary from being a ghetto with huge problems to being a very attractive and sought after places to live. - Such neighborhoods are usually called silver-wedding or gold-wedding neighborhoods, because the residents are often mature and live in fairly small apartments or houses.
Gyldenrisparken was completely worn down and it went through a comprehensive renovation a few years ago and is now a model-project.
As Britain face the same problems with nonprofit estates needing renovation and the PoW is interested in that sort of things, it's logic to put that on the agenda.

Advedøreværket = Avedøre Power Station.
Info in English. Facts about Avedøreværket Power Station
The power station is hyper modern and is one of the most efficiet in the world. It supplies a very large percentage of the housing in Copenhagen with central heating. - This is Frederik's territory. Some of you may recall he recieved an award a couple of years ago, because M&F's new residence relies on very energy efficient central heating.

The Citaldel = Kastellet (See in the Amalienborg thread) is located close to Amalienborg and it's natural that they should greet Danish Afghanistan veterans as Danish troops work closely with British forces in the Helmand province. (As well as US Marines, in providing support from main battle tanks).

It's pretty natural I guess that they should visit a Hamlet workshop at Kronborg of all places. As Hamlet is frequently performed there. At the time Shakespeare wrote Hamlet, Kronborg was a modern fortress and being well informed he would have known about it, and so would a segment of his audience. - But he and they would have been unfamilliar with the gloomy and medieval Copenhagen Castle, that at the time was the residence of the DRF. Copenhagen Castle would have been any scenographers wet dream in regards to setting up Hamlet!

So we were wrong .....

I admit to being skeptical about the rumours of this visit, but here I am with egg on my face . The only consolation is that a few may have more eggs on their faces than yours truly!

It did actually turn out to be a Scandinavian whistlestop tour apparently without the wind mills of Samsoe ..... apparently!

Indeed. I would understand the reason for the tour if it wasn't in connection with the Jubilee. I just don't get it.

We are informed that the Regent Couple will be the hosts for Prince Charles and Countess Camilla. (*) And as such they will live at Amalienborg.
The Regent Couple will accompany the guests around but the CP couple has also announced that they wish to participate in parts of the schedule.
QMII will also host a grand dinner, when is unknown.

It's clear that a number of details regarding the schedule are not in place yet.
The PoW has been to DK before but it's the first visit by Countess Camilla. And this visit has something to do with QEII's jubilee. - Whatever that may be.

(*) Interesting but I guess they know each other pretty well and are similar age wise. And who else to bend the protocol than the Monarch herself?

I see that the Crown Prince and the Prince of Wales will be visiting Rudolf Rasmussens workshop on 26 march. My brother works there and will be at the visit. I can tell you they are busy cleaning the place up. It'll be exciting to see how it goes.

Link to the homepage of the church, where D. Buxtehude was organplayer and Prince Charles has therefore asked for an organconcert played by the organ player at the church.

It's interesting to hear that in the TV-report of their arrival Camilla is constantly named "Lady Camilla" and BB obviously calls her "Countess Camilla". Of course she has these titles as Countess of Chester and of Carrick as well as Lady of The Isles but why do they use them instead of saying Duchess or even Princess?

As this is a official visit, for the Jubilee, I don't see why they would want to see the children. You can't know that.

Bear with these people! Checking the correct titles seems to be too much of an effort for them!
I'm afraid that the arrival of TRH has been eclipsed by the sad news of a stag party stunt going horribly wrong! The groom was going up in a small aircraft with an instructor; it crashed a couple of minutes after take off!
Both were airlifted to a regional hospital, but the groom did not make it!
How awful for his fiancé! - As for C & C there's still a full schedule for the next few days!

Charles and Camilla did visit little Estelle though, so they might want to see the Danish kids as well, including the little Princess.

Immediately after the arrival the Prince of Wales had a meeting with Danish environment minister Mrs. Ida Auken.
The PoW specifically requested this meeting, which was about the future outlook for the world environment and the 'green trinity' of energy, water and food security. As an environmental front runner Denmark has now been invited to join the the PoWs Environmental working Group.
Ms. Auken comes from a family of left wing politicians focusing on the environment. She is known for not being easily impressed by royalty and royalty related events, but she appeared to be genuinely charmed by Charles because of his passion for and involvement in the cause!
