the trip is coming up. I think its usually done for outside trips to have a new thread created

HRH Crown Prince making travel to Nepal with the Red Cross in Denmark on September 17 to 20.
H.K.H. Kronprinsen foretager rejse til Nepal med Rde Kors i Danmark den 17. ? 20. september - Kongehuset

Billed Bladet article
Kronprins Frederik skal til Nepal | billedbladet.dk
"the Danish Red Cross says that the crown prince got to go out and look at some of the villages affected by the quake.
The villages are relatively far out, are places where the Red Cross has started in reconstruction and relief."

and it seems the Embassy in Nepal is getting ready

At least we got a program this time. Hoping for some good coverage

Frederik has kissed Mary and children farewell this morning because it seems like he this noon left Denmark and begun his travel to Nepal. (A flight of 15-20 hours depending on how many stopovers)

From the Danish Red Cross some hours ago:
"So it's time of departure to Nepal with HRH The Crown Prince".

According to the CP Mary message board, Frederik has an IOC meeting in South Korea on the 22nd, so maybe he'll go there directly from Nepal instead of coming back to Denmark.

I certainly think. In fact, Frederik would not be able to reach home to Denmark since the flight time is 16-20 hours. And Frederik's visit to Nepal ends on 21 septmeber.

Thanks, Roskilde & Polyesco.

Does anyone know what the current political and economic situation is in Nepal right now? And what's on the news there?

Here's a site that I've found helpful: World Time Server: current local time and date in any zone

There's a drop-down menu, just highlight the country you want. Not only will you get the time and temperature, but further down the page, there is a link to the local news. Enjoy!

this helps alot, thank you

an article on Frederik's arrival.
Kronprins Frederik er landet i Nepal | billedbladet.dk

a long flight follow by a long drive on dirt roads.

"Immediately after having landed in Nepal's capital Kathmandu took Crown Prince Frederik and the Danish Red Cross delegation hole on a tight work program over the next days, among other things, offers trips on foot to isolated quake-hit villages near the Himalayas.

Thursday. September 17, 2015 - Ulrik Ulriksen in Nepal

Crown Prince Frederik landed Thursday morning in Nepal's capital Kathmandu after a long flight from Copenhagen with a single stopover.

Immediately after arrival drove Crown Prince Frederik and the Danish delegation set off in cars heading for the provincial capital of Lamjung.

The Crown Prince is in Nepal to experience the Danish Red Cross relief work in quake-hit provinces far from Kathmandu.
Five hours by car lasted until the crown prince and the Danish delegation had traveled a few hundred kilometers of mountain roads and could unpack in a hotel in Lamjung district on the south side of the Himalayas impressive and awe-inspiring mountain range."

Thanks Polyesco,

I see it's BB's Ulrik Ulriken who is travled along and is covering Frederik's visit. Ulrik Ulriken's main task is to cover the Crown prince Couple (along with Marianne Singer), he covers many of the CP couple's event, travels and officiel visits (in fact, it's rare he covers any of the other royal members). He knows them well and F&M know him well.

This should means good coverage on billedbladet.dk during the entire visit.

I love this little note
"The Danish Crown Prince had requested that there be no welcome ceremony as this was a personal visit."
I think this suits his style no fanfare just straight to the issue

Thank you, a nice picture of Frederik in Nepal. Let's hope we soon get some more :)

It will be interesting if the press can get internet connection out in the remote areas which the delegation and Frederik are visiting. If not, we may have to wait for coverage until they once again reach to a place with internet connection.

Thanks for the links and photos.


Frederik is what my grandmother would have called a doer. There are doers and talkers she always said doers check for themselves the situation while talkers sit back and talk about it and themselves.
This is one of the many reasons I like Frederik, he is not worried about getting out there and getting his hands dirty.
