Crown Princely Family Visit to Greenland; August 1-8, 2014

Greenland's two largest newspapers reports today that Frederik and Mary are going to visit Greenland this summer. The specific locations and dates is not organized yet.

The High Commissioner of Greenland, Mikaela Engell, says that as soon as a program is available the press will get more information.

Exciting, maybe the children will join them.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will pay an official visit to Greenland between August 1st and August 8th. They will be accompanied by their four children, and will travel on the royal yacht Dannebrog.

South and West Greenland will be visited, with the visit beginning in South Greenland, with the towns of Igaliko, Narsaq, Alluitsup Paa, Nanortalik, Qaqortoq and Upernaviarsuk being visited. In West Greenland, the towns visited will be Paamiut, Qeqertarsuatsiaat and Nuuk.

Correct. We may expect the family to fly to Greenland and/or Iceland and then either board Danneborg in a port somewhere, or fly by helicopter (not the most likely option since the Lynx helicopters are fairly small) to the escorting warship and then sail over to Dannebrog.

I will add that Dannebrog with a crew of up to 80 people, including some 60 hungry conscripts is a pretty large crew in modern terms and require a lot of food, just on a daily basis.
Due to the notoriously bad weather in the North Atlantic, it's simply a necessity to stock up well, because the ship may not be able to enter a suitable port while on the way to Greenland or while along the coast of Greenland.

As security and as a tender, the escorting warship, which must be expected to be bigger and have a larger storage space can also supply Dannebrog should she be in trouble of suffer shortages. The warship will also accomodate members of the press, that has happened on previous visits.
At least we can rest assured M&F, children and the crew won't have to live on hard tack, bad water and grog - even if the weather should turn seriously foul.

so how many people travel on danneborg on such a trip? one can imagine the ship getting really full when considering all the crew, the RF, the press and any aides to the RF such as bodyguards, nannies, officers...! do you think the food they pack for the RF is different than that of the crew and press?

The press does definitely NOT travel on the Dannebrog.
So it's the crew (up to 80 persons according to Muhler), the 6 members of the CP Family and their aids. I would say 90-100 persons all included.

I think Ricarda's assesment is pretty accurate.
M&F + four children + two-four PET officers + one or two nannies + one stylist of some sort + a LiW + perhaps Frederik's valet + probably Lene Balleby from the PR office as well and that would be about it, I believe. - Oh, and one liason person from the court.
No adjutant will be needed on this trip as the captain of Dannebrog almost automatically doubles as adjutant (the highest ranking adjutant BTW).
