Yes, on Tuesday he will be in Toronto at Harbourfront Centre to open SuperDanish: Newfangled Danish Culture, which is a comprehensive study and homage of/to Danish visual and performing arts, culture, lifestyle, design, architecture and food.

I wasn't sure if he was still coming in light of the divorce. It seemed up in the air last week when I was speaking with a PR person at Harbourfront Centre about it. But if he is there, so will I! ;) There was some talk about Princess Benedikte taking his place if he felt that it was more important to be at home with his sons at this time.

It is an evening reception with the Prince and Adrienne Clarkson, the Governor General of Canada. But before that there is a media preview with questions and answers with the media and Prince Joachim will tour some of the exhibits taking place at Harbourfront Centre, specifically The Power Plant and York Quay Gallery. I think he is also expected to take in one of the performances, too, but I'm not sure. (Plays fall under Entertainment ... for which I am not the editor of.)

Here is the link for SuperDanish at Harbourfront Centre: http://www.harbourfrontcentre.com/superdanish/

I saw on the CBC that there's also going to be a debut of an opera based on one of Margaret Atwood's novels (I think its called 'the handmaid's tale' or something), it's written by a Danish guy. Maybe Joachim will attend the performance.

Prince Joachim in Canada
 
Prince Joachim is supposedly still coming to Canada next week. I haven't heard anything solid about him not coming. My friend works at the Governor General's office and she said there was no changes in the Governor General's schedule for next week. So I think he is coming, maybe he he'll get away from the press for a few day ... probably not though ;)

His Royal Highness Prince Willem of the Netherlands was in Vancouver about a week ago, but it was a private visit to do with the International Olympic Commitee.

I have a picture of Joachim at the hotel in Toronto. I told Alexandra that she created a monster once she taught me how to upload pictures:)

But a good kind of moster mgrant! :p

In case anyone wants to "surprise" Joachim at his hotel ;) he is staying at the Westin Harbour Castle -- surprising that he is not staying at the Fairmont Royal York -- which is where members of the British royal family stay when visiting Toronto. QE II has a special floor that she stays on whenever she visits and it is not rented out to just anybody; only dignitaries stay in that suite when it is not occupied by QE II or members of her family.

Some very surprising things from my meeting with him this afternoon:

He is still wearing his wedding band.

He is very, very tall.

He cuts a very dashing figure in a suit!

He has a very deep voice. If you only heard his voice on the radio without knowing who he was or anything about him, you would know immediately that he either smoked heavily at one point or still does.

He actually has a wry sense of humour. He was cracking jokes with the media.

OOOh.. I love the Westin Harbour castle. I stayed there for a week 3 years ago and had a wonderful time!
