Thank you, Lumutqueen.

It's tempting to speculate as to whether this outfit is something the otherwise always correctly attired Joachim - acquired - while waiting for his luggage to turn up.

Prince Joachim visiting the VSLA Project in Nyingari. Small loans are given
to especially women in the villages. The funds for the loans are raised by
the villagers themselves. Every entry has to be entered in books and
wittnesed by the villagers. After fullfilling a payment the user gets a stamp
in her loan book - Prince Joachim donated 20 sh and got his stamp on his
right hand.

I must say, Joachim looks like he is having a good time. The places he is visiting looks really nice. The beach is just lovely.

Ahh alright then.
I must say those pictures on the beach show a very 'Princely Prince'. If you get me.

I'd go so far as to say that a crown wouldn't look amiss on this competent prince's head.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #43, 2010.
Jeg savner Marie - I miss Marie.
Written by Indius Pedersen (freelance).

Who had a chat with a very casually dressed Joachim standing in the surf at Coconut beach at sundown.
Indius Pedersen may be related to the incomparable Ulrik Ulriksen, just enjoy this excerpt: Prince Joachim smiles and is happy. Walking at the waters edge at Coconut off the coast of Ghana he enjoy the sun, which is slowly going down into the Atlantic. He gets a faraway look in his gaze, while he smiles quirkly. No one is in doubt as to who Prince would absolutely prefer to share this - his wife, (*) Princess Marie, who wait home at Amalienborg.
He neither cannot nor will he hide his longing: "I miss the Princess. Ten days is a long time when you would like to be at home". (**)
Joachim has been pretty busy during his stay in Ghana as patron for Care Denmark. Apart from having to do without his luggage for a couple of days, he crossed a precarious looking rope-bridge spanning 350 meters, petted a crocodile, associated with witches and handed out mobile phones.
The Care projects are designed as helping the recipients to help themselves.
Joachim has been in frequent contact with his oldest sons, who right now are on holiday in Japan with their mother Alexandra and Martin Jørgensen.
"I have a lovely relationship with Nikolai and Felix, whom I adore. They are great boys and we have no secrets for each other. And that can only work well, because Alexandra and I speak together in good way". (***)

One of the villages Joachim visited was one dedicated particularly for women who had become outcasts in their societies. In many cases the women had been accused of being witches, both on the principle that someone has to take the blame for a misfortune and because many people in that part of Ghana genuinely belive in witchcraft.
Being accused of being a witch is dangerous! So the women have to flee. Many fortunately manage to find shelter in a village for outcasts and the residents of such villages have decided that witchcraft doesn't work in the villages.
Now, it's easy for words like "superstitious" and "ignorance" to pop up in my head at least, when reading this. Until I think about what some people here in DK believe in....

(*) DK lesson: Actually "viv" = an archaic word for wife.

(**) This is wonderful! This simply calls for a song:

(***) Good greif! Has he been chewing silly weed? It's not like Joachim to be that sentimental. Maybe the scenery struck a cord within him?

Joachim looks like he is in high spirits at this event. Is it still cold in Denmark? His suit seems to be quite wintery colors for spring/summer.

It is around 20°C I don't think it is a heavy wintersuit, if you look at the fabric, but no summersuit, either

Joachim has been busy lately but as he is not wearing dresses, he unfortunately only get limited coverage.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #22, 2011.
Joachim's travle dag - Joachim's busy day.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Joachim opened the Odense Cultural Festival which takes place in Odense harbour and lasts for three days.
The weather was miserable! Leading Joachim to end his speech with the words: "Have a great/cool festival and mingle. (*) Then the weather surely will be better".
As is happening in so many other harbours all over the world right now, Odense harbour is also undergoing a major transition from a work space to a residential/cultural area and Joachim had a look at that as well and he said: "It's interesting how you connect the city centre with the harbour". (**)

Apart from that, there is a considerable number of Greenlanders in Odense and for them a new cultural/social house has been build. Joachim said: "In Odense there is a pretty large group of Greenlanders and I'm very pleased that they and others now get an opportunity to meet in completely new house". (***)

(*) I need a little help from English speakers, please. It's the expression: "Kom hinanden ved" which can be translated to mingle, socialise, interact, party together, get to know each other and so on. - I need a short appropriate English phrase to cover this expression. Any bids?

(**) He probably meant it, but it's also an example of saying something sensible while really saying nothing at all.

(***) There are IIRC up to 10.000 Greenlanders in DK, or the equivalent of the the number of ethnic Danes in Greenland. Unfortunately the main focus is on the very visible Greenlanders who do not cope with the transition from Greenland, to city life in DK. They end up in bottom of the society, as drug or alcohol users. That detracts from the Greenlanders who manage well, get an education and return to Greenland or settle here in DK.

.
I'm not a native speaker of English but here in Germany we use an English phrase for that and that's "Get together" meaning an event where people should get to know each other when they are new as a group or should re-acquaint after a period of seperation. A Get Together for example is normally at the evening before a conference when the people are all arrived at the meeting place but the conference will start only the next morning. So there's a Get Together Party for them to meet and greet and socialise. Is that what you meant? And is it the same meaning in English?

Thanks Kataryn

Get together, yes, that'll do fine.
