Thank you, Paty.
That's a pleasant surprise. I like watching them doing official visits together.
Iceland is a beautiful place and I hope we will get to see a lot of beautiful pictures.
When I visited Iceland a few years ago I was lucky enough to experience the most beautiful weather (quite unusual as I was told),
I hope they will have the same luck.

According to the embassy's website they will visit the capital Reykjavik and some places in South and West Iceland.

Thaks also for the info Ricarda. They will spend 3 days visiting the country and they will visit for sure many beautiful places, so I hope this thread will be a window to know, more closely, the culture of Iceland and also to know what type of ralations Iceland and Denmark have.

I have never been in Iceland so I´m unpatience for the begining of the visit

What absolutely horrifying stockings the Icelandic first lady has on. Good grief! On another note, it's nice to see the CP couple out and about. Is Iceland still a protectorate pof Denmark, or do they just have political ties?

Here is a VIDEO from the conference. Start if the video, the first lady takes off her sunglasses & hands them over to Frederik but he doesnt take thembut then everyone laughs about it.

No it isnt. It gained their independence from Denmark in 1904. I think there is some kind of relation between the two countries.

Fantastic! Thank you Ayvee and Princess Maxima. Hopefully we'll be able to see a better view with details of the gown soon. The trip so far seems to be running smoothly and all parties look great.

However, I must say that Mary's make-up at tonight's gala was a little on the heavy side. I prefer a more "light" look for evening... something similar to the late Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's make-up style.

I have to say that the First Lady of Iceland has got a very peculiar taste in fashion. Her ensemble reminded of the 1980s fashion: large belts and huge shoulders. As for the stockings, I am speechless.
Crown Princess Mary looked great wearing a classical and demure outfit. I wish she wore brighter colour to enhance her complexion. I also liked Crown Princess Mary's gala hairstyle.
