Jess, this means that the visit starts November 1 and not Nov 2, correct?
Looks like a busy trip.

JessRulz 10-14-2009 04:55 AM

According to the article, yes. Which is odd, because the official press release from the royal court said it began on the 2nd. But, given the amount of detail given in the article, I'm inclined to believe it (this isn't the first report ScandAsia has had on the visit).

sgl 10-18-2009 10:40 AM

Billed Bladet has an article talking about the upcoming visit to Vietnam by the Queen, Prince Consort, and CP couple:
Billed-Bladet - Frederik, Mary, Margrethe og Henrik skal på cykeltur

It says that they will ride in a bicycle taxi. This is the first time that the four royals have taken a state visit together. During the visit, the Queen and CP Mary will visit a flag factory, and the Prince Consort and Crown Prince will tour a brewery. They will also attend a party given in their honour. The article says that Prince Henrik is familiar with Vietnam. He lived there as a child, and returned during his student days.

Does anyone know when Queen Margrethe II, Prince Henrik, CP Frederik and CPss Mary shall arrive in Vietnam on Sunday, 1st November since their tour begins at 15.40(3.40 p.m.)?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,
EaO.

Thank you, Terri Terri for the information.

Terri Terri 10-31-2009 05:33 PM

Prince Joachim is regent from October 31st, which means that the Queen and CP Frederik are out of the country. So maybe the regent couple and the crown prince couple will arrive in Vietnam on Saturday night?

Lumutqueen 10-31-2009 06:10 PM

Yeah they will leave tonight more than likely, it is a long flight to Vietnam. :flowers:

Terri Terri 10-31-2009 07:19 PM

Yes...well over 24 hours I think! So it's a good thing that the Day 1 agenda starts later in the day and only includes the bicycle taxi ride and dinner at the Danish ambassador's residence...gives the royals time to recover from jet lag!
