And at the same time Mary is hosting a lunch for the First Lady in Frederik VIII's Palace, where Mary Foundation and its focus areas will be presented.

It's very clear that Frederik and Mary takes over more and more. It is also M+F who will accompany the presidential couple around to the different events.

Interesting how the Queen, Mary & Marie are all in some shade of blue.

Hi Marta,

It's just the translation. For some reason Google always translates Crown Prince Couple in Danish to Crown Prince in the English. But Mary will participate in all the events.

Just my thought, Dazzling. Queen Margrethe must really love that outfit. I most of all think she looks like a blue Teletubbies :biggrin:

More information on the business lunch hosted by Frederik at Hermitage Palace.

Erhvervsfrokost på Eremitageslottet - Kongehuset

Is this the first time they are using Hermitage Palace for events like this?

Muhler 09-18-2013 02:01 PM

DR1 will show a half an hour summary from todays events at 20.50. That's in 50 minutes from now.

You should be able to see it outside DK.

Perhaps someone will check and post a link?

-----------

As Roskilde points out M&F are indeed taking over more and more from the Regent Couple.

Frederik taking the Vietnamese President and and large part of the 150 strong business delegation to visit the newly restored Eremitage Slot is important. We can expect quite a number of deals to be closed in the these days.
DK has cultivated Vietnam for some years now. It is, I understand, notoriously difficult to enter a South Asian market from the outside and this is where the DRF comes in. By their status they ensure that Danish and Vietnamese businesses meet on a higher level than otherwise.
The DRF state visit to Vietnam a few years ago was at the beginning of this commerce offensive and we are now getting to the point where the fruits have ripened.

Mary and the Vietnamese First Lady will deal with the more soft topics. Nevertheless Danish pedagogical methods have been studied with interest in China and presumably also Vietnam, especially in regards to kindergartens and younger school classes, in contrast to the more strict methods so far used in China and Vietnam. (Which we Danes incidentally are studying). The Free From Bullying concept appears to one of the things that we may export as a know how. (Thank you Australia).

I always laugh at the comparison to the Teletubbies but there is one problem: there is red, purple, yellow and green Teletubbies ... and there is not the blue one :D
The Queen has a lot of beautiful dresses... and she dressed this blue one for the second time in a few days ( coat and skirt, because we don't have "information" which blouse She wore in Sweden ;))
