Prince Joachim & Princess Marie's Official Visit to Japan; October 29-November 3,2011

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #25, 2011.
Marie hjælper Droningen - Marie helps the Queen.
Written by Trine Larsen.

In the end of October and beginning of November, our Marie and Joachim will go to Japan, partly to inaugurate and present the exhibition and movie: The Wild Swans, in which QMII made a considerable contribution. Partly also to promote Danish commerce.

The visit was actually scheduled for May, but was postponed due to the tsunami.

M&J now have a considerabe routine in this as they have done something similar before, i.e. combining culture and commerce, in USA, China and Mexico.

(Corrected. Thanks Sternchen).

What about princess Marie?
Does she has her own agenda at this visit?

I read somewhere that our Marie was not supposed to take part in the ceremony in Hiroshima.
I read it some time ago, but I can't remember where.

Maybe she recovers from the trip - she is as pregnant as Crown Princess Victoria, after all and it's a long flight to Japan, even taking a route over the pole.

According to the following article from today, Princess Marie already travelled from Tokyo
to Kyoto while Prince Joachim was in Hiroshima.

So far it seems like a visit with an agenda that's not too crowded, there has not been a
detailed programme released, so I can imagine that there are only a few main events.

- As Kataryn pointed out, I too guess the fair Marie needs to put her feet up a bit, as she is pregnant.
I wonder if her hairdresser accompany them? Not unlikely since Joachim, and not least Marie are going to promote Danish fashion. - So fashionable maternity outfits are coming up, ladies.

I wonder why Marie is going at all, if she goes she should do the full program or be staying at home, what would be prefectly understandable in her condition.

One reason could be that she looks better in dresses than Joachim...
One of the main purposes of this visit is to promote Danish fashion.
From a glamourous point of view, a pregnant princess is interesting news.
Another thing is that while Danish commerce worship Joachim, they are just as fond of our Marie, because she provides additional pr just by being there.
J&M is a good team.

She's pregnant which means she can't run at full speed, but that hardly makes her handicapped, so why not go with her husband to Japan?

Maybe she wanted to pick up a couple of comfy kimonos to wear around the house.

Im surprised no detailed program has been released, I would've expected one just before the visit as what happens usual.

I don't expect to see Marie at all events that Joachim is attending and vise versa. Past visits and other royals don't attend all events & as Marie is pregnant I would expect her agenda not to be so busy.

There are a couple of photos of Princess Marie in Japan on gettyimages.com and I saw some on Daylife but the site never opens properly for me.

Thank you, Iceflower

That's what I hoped to see from our Marie.
She looks good in her "work clothes".

And now a sweet little story from Japan: Billed-Bladet - Prins Joachim i Japan: Overrasket og rørt

Joachim is patron for the diabetes association and as such he visited the Tokyo Women's Medical Hospital, because insulin is provided by the Danish medical company Novo Nordisk. - In fact if any of you have diabetes it's more than likely your insulin is from Novo Nordisk.
Here he met Mirika Ninoi who hesitantly and shy presented him with a letter, written, somewhat childish, in Danish.
Here Mirika Ninoi tells him about how she had looked forward to meeting him and how she would like to be singer, when she grows up.
Unfortunately that may be unlikely to come true, because diabetes is for whatever reason a tabu in Japan and people with diabetes are stigmatized.
Eight million Japanese have diabetes.

The letter moved and delighted Joachim. (*)

Joachim also met another girl, five years old Maku Ismikawa.
He said in his speech: "Openness and dialogue is important and the best thing is if the school is also open and involve mates and friends, so that all can support the children, so that they don't grow up with the feeling of being outside and different".

(*) That kinds of gifts are the most precious.
One of most treasured things I have, is a car a boy gave my while serving in Croatia. I don't even know his name.

Danish Prince Joachim, right, and Princess Marie leave a decoupage workshop after meeting Japanese children from the tsunami-hit areas in northern Japan's Higashimatsushima city, during a workshop in Tokyo, Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011.

Thank you, Dazzling
We can always count on you to dig up something.

I wonder if anyone has an explanation about the badge Joachim is wearing on his lapel?
