Interesting!

A solo-trip.
That's usually something M&F do together and sometimes Frederik alone.

Indeed. Very much building up to serving the country as Queen-Consort!

But isn't Frederik going on a state visit in March to Argentina? So maybe it was decided that CP Marry can do this solo trip....she is certainly very capable.

She sure is.
And this is IMO an extra pad on her shoulder.

They wouldn't send Mary if they weren't sure she can "sell" on her own. Is able to mingle with suits, without saying anything she shouldn't. And is high ranking and interesting enough to attract the appropriate attention in her own right.
There is also a little politics in such a visit, in the sense that she is likely to drop by the governor of Texas to say officially hi.

To me this indicates that the politicians as well as the business people have full confidence in her.

I wonder if she'll visit Clear Lake School while in Houston? That would be a nice trip down memory lane for her -- and a treat for the students, too!

How exciting! Im sure Mary well do so well, she already had a little practice run going to Finland last year in Frederik's place.
It will be a busy March for the DRF: Frederik to Canada 3-6, Mary to Texas 10-13, and then the Queen and Frederik to Argentina 18-20.

This visit seems to be mostly about culture and creative industries, with the minister of culture accompanying her. She did a similar visit to Seattle last year.

"The campaign is a part of a multi-year push to promote Danish culture in the USA backed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture. Last year, Her Royal Highness helped to launch the campaign, which will strengthen Danish arts and culture throughout the USA. At that time, the launch took place in Seattle"

Mary sure is going to be busy in spring! This will be interesting to follow.
