Regent Couple & Crown Prince Couple Official Trip to Greenland; June 19th-21st, 2009
Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik, Cp Frederik & Cp Mary will begin a visit to Greenland on June 19 to celebrate celebrate Greenland's independence.
Celebrations begin June 20 but the main celebration is on June 21st which will be attended by the royal family.
Crown Princess Mary visits Greenland with The Mary Foundation: June 19-22, 2009
But it should have been a visit with the crown prince and the royal couple, no???
Thats what it was listed as initially, but I guess this doesn't exclude the royal couple & Frederik, as Paty's translantion says "and" implying 2 reasons for going; I'd just assume that she'll attend Mary Foundation events as well as the ones the other 3 attend.
Acording to the Royal Calendar, Only the Crown Princess will attend.
Greenland seems to be be a very popular place to visit for the royals this year :rolleyes:
Let's hope for good photo coverage of this trip :flowers:
Quite; does seem to be the "in" place for royal engagments this year. The CP Couple & Regent Couple are visiting Greenland soon aren't they?
I wonder if Mary will go with the rest of the family and then attened the events for the foundation. Wouldnt make sense for one family to go on two different planes when heading to the same place.
Interesting visit this would be.
Frederik and the Regent Couple will join Mary in Greenland in connection with Greenland's introduction of self government.

Nice practical outfit for Mary. Shame the family couldn't arrive together. Would have made for some nice pictures. :flowers:
I think it is nice that Mary was the first one to arrive and that she was alone. After all, she is the Crown Princess of Greenland not only of Denmark.
It looks very cold and rainy. Does anyone know where they stay when they visit Greenland? Do they have a residence there, or do they stay with government officials, or in a hotel?
Hope we'll have more pics because now it's only a few ones!
I love this photo:

I hope that they have decent weather for the remainder of their visit!
