Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark's Visit to Japan: March 26-28, 2015

The Royal Court informs today that Frederik and Mary will pay a official visit in Japan from 26-28th March 2015 to lead a Greenland promotional campaign.

I guess this is the Japan visit there was cancelled due to general elections in Greenland, which has been moved forward to March.

The admins are welcome to move my post to a possible new thread.

During the visit the Crown Prince Couple will also meet the Imperial Family. The Crown Prince Couple participate in a lunch with Their Imperial Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan, visiting an exhibition opening with Their Imperial Highnesses Princess Takamado and Princess Tsuguko of Takamado and participate in dinner with Their Imperial Highnesses Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako.

Their official visits where all the events are together are also the best me thinks (;

But first it also was only Frederik who was scheduled to participate in this three days visit promoting Greenland, but pleasantly Mary accompanies Frederik.

Yes this visit is all about to promote Greenland and I can only imagine that Greenland is proud of having them to promote their country. As you know their 'King' Frederik and daughter-in-law as they call Mary just have a special place in the Greenlandic hearts.
