Here's a bit of video from the airport. The last part of the video is a very clever journalist explaining the political context of the visit....it's in Danish so I guess my suggestions to ignore it are needless. Tyrkiets kontroversielle præsident besøger Danmark | Nyheder | DR

Muhler 03-17-2014 09:57 AM

And two articles from BB with pics: Tyrkisk statsbesøg: Stormende velkomst til Tyrkiets præsident | Billed Bladet

Tyrkisk statsbesøg: Sjældent visit på Amalienborg | Billed Bladet

It's windy today, as you can tell from the photos.
For once the whole show takes place at Amalienborg and not Fredensborg or Christiansborg.

I see Mary will be hosting a lunch for the Turkish first lady tomorrow. It's good to see that they are taking over more and more and that their residence is also used so much.

polyesco 03-17-2014 12:30 PM

Judging from the program, it is mostly Frederik and Mary being the "hosts" for the presidential couple. Frederik today with the president of Turkey at the Business seminars, Danish Industries and House of Green....and Mary tomorrow with the First lady.

A little bit more info on the president's program today, with Frederik.
Besøg ved Dansk Industri - Kongehuset

Crown Prince Frederik and Turkey's President Abdullah Gul arrives at the House of Industry in connection with the Turkish state visit on Monday, March 17, 2014 in Copenhagen.

http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/240/7/1...-besger-di.jpg

"Turkey has the potential to become the OECD country that gets the highest economic growth over the next 15 years, and it continues to provide good opportunities for Danish companies , according to a new analysis by the Confederation of Danish Industries .

It is therefore an important meeting , when Turkish President Abdullah Gul , Crown Prince Frederik , CEO of DI Karsten Dybvad , Economy and Interior Minister Margrethe Vestager and a number of high profile business leaders from Denmark and Turkey meet today to Turkish English Trade and Investment Forum in the House of Industry ."

Just watching the speaches at the state banquet.LIVE Tyrkiets præsident på besøg - følg gallataffel på Amalienborg | Nyheder | DR

I find it a bit odd the HE the President is not wearing any Danish orders. Maybe he refuses orders for political reasons. Any thoughts?

It is pretty windy today and as you can tell from this picture, Frederik has made sure his trousers won't fly away, by keeping them in a firm grip inside his pockets. :tongue: (We need a Marilyn Monroe-smiley).

it says it can't play. I'm not sure if that's because of my computer or a general error or because I'm outside of denmark.

We can't watch the program at the moment, but that might change. So keep checking! Whether there is geo-blocking for a certain program usually depends on copyright restrictions. So we might be able to watch the summary ;).

EDIT: Ok, it doesn't work:sad:

Have just seen the arrivals on TV ..

Our poor Mary lost her shoe as she stepped out of the car, but she handled it with her usual elegance.

Margrethe is in a recycling green dress.

Mary is in this dress from 2013
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-j9FB2WXhN2...%259Fraf+2.jpg

Marie is in a new red dress

**

The TV commentators also commented the Crown Prince Couple's important roles and high-profile under these state visits.

maria-olivia 03-17-2014 05:24 PM

I saw it also and very impressed, great red uniforms.
The entrance of Prince Joachim and afterwards Prince Frederic were not the same. The Crown Prince forgot what he had to do and where he had to go ..
The Princesses with their same tiaras again. Nice red dress for Marie.
HM the Queen was great as usual ! I like the palmette tiara.

Muhler 03-17-2014 05:36 PM

Okay, for those who couldn't watch the programme live (I'm sure a working link will surface later).
First half was basically the guests arriving. I.e. dresses, politicians and who's who of Danish commerce and industry because this is very much about business. Turkey has developed into a major industrial power in regards to heavy industry in particular.

This is actually the first state visit since the start of diplomatic relations between DK and Turkey in the 1750's.

A couple of details: Tanja Doky looked very elegant indeed and so did Mary and our Marie.
The Turkish President was flanked on both sides by Mary and QMII, I presume the Turkish first ladt was flanked by PH and Frederik but I couldn't see.
The Knights Hall/Great Hall the whole show took place in is very beautiful and it is AFIIR the first time I've seen an event from the hall. Unfortunately it's also fairly small, so the guests were divided and seated in several rooms.

It will please Polyesco, and others no doubt, that Frederik this time did the correct thing at the top of the stairs and made sure that Mary was to his right, as befits a precious person as one's wife.
I presume a technical glitz prevented Joachim from doing the same thing with his precious Marie.

A good deal of the commentaries was about how M&F are taking over more and more and with confidence.

And here is a what not to do, if you are a gentleman: http://www.b.dk/nationalt/dronningen...nborg#slide-12
The white west should reach about two centimeters or one inch below the jacket - not twenty centimeters!

In case anyone should wonder. Frederik is wearing the mess uniform of the navy, complete with his free fall jump wings.

A video from BB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4eFkdfXzw8
Guests and royals arriving.

Observe and admire how Joachim, being the considerate gentleman he is, always dispense from formality and allow our Marie to exit nearest to the curb.

Love all the pictures. Again, this is the kind of pictures and videos the BRF needs to provide.
