Up to this point, the Royal Danish Court has not released any information regarding the scheduled activities during the visit. However, from the website of the International Press Centre one can conclude that:
  • Official photoes will be taken in the Chinese Room at Amalienborg Palace
  • The expected state banquet will also be held at Amalienborg
  • The President is to see an exhibition and hear a concert at the National Museum of Denmark.

Here is the full programme of the state visit of HE Mr. Georgi Parvanov, President of the Republic of Bulgaria and Mrs. Zorka Parvanova.

March 29
10:00 The President and his wife are received by HM the Queen, HRH the Prince Consort and other members of the Danish Royal Family at Copenhagen Airport. After a presentation at the terminal, the guests and hosts leave for Christiansborg Palace at 10:20.
10:50 Escorted by the Royal Hussars, the motorcade departs from Christiansborg Palace.
11:15 The President, his wife and the Reigning Couple of Denmark arrive at Amalienborg Palace. The exchange of gifts and decorations, along with the taking of the official photo, will take place in the Chinese Room of Christian VII's Palace.
12:00 - 12:30 The President visits the Copenhagen Opera House (since Her Majesty is an avid opera fan, she might serve as a formidable 'tour guide' of the House. However, the press programme does not mention Her Majesty's participation in this part of the programme).
12:40 - 14:45 The President participates in a luncheon at the Danish Industry during which he will give a speech. Meanwhile, Mrs. Zorka Parvanova visits the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
15:00 - 15:35 The President takes part in a Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Resistant Movement Cemetery "Mindelunden" (again, the programme mentions no royal participation, but Her Majesty normally accompanies her guest on this traditional part of a state visit).
16:20 - 17:20 The President addresses the Danish Foreign Policy Society at the Royal Library.
17:20 The President meets the Bulgarian community at the Royal Library and returns to Amalienborg Palace at 17:55.
20:00 STATE BANQUET for the President and Mrs. Zorka Parvanova. The speeches will be televised.

March 30
07:45 The President and Mrs. Zorka Parvanove leave Amalienborg Palace.
07:55 Arrival at the royal lounge of Copenhagen Railway Station.
08:00 Departure for Århus, the second largest city of Denmark, by special train. The Bulgarian delegation has requested to be shown the most modern in IT and waste disposal technology.
11:00 Arrival at Århus Railway Station, transport to Århus City Hall.
11:10 Arrival at Århus City Hall. Official reception during which the host for the day, Mr. Nicolai Wammen, Mayor of Århus, will give a speech and a Bulgarian choir will perform.
11:45 Arrival at IT-centre "Katrinebjerg". The President takes a tour of the premises. Meanwhile, Mrs. Zorka Parvanova visits the art museum of Århus, "ARoS".
12:30 The President arrives at Waste-Centre Århus and visits the premises.
13:10 The President and Mrs. Zorka Parvanova visit "the Old Town" where Mayor Nicolai Wammen will host a luncheon at 13:30. At 14:45 the couple's motorcade departs for Århus Railway Station.
14:57 The train leaves Århus, headed for Copenhagen.
17:55 Arrival at Copenhagen Railway Station. Departure for Amalienborg Palace.
19:15 - 22:50 The President and his wife host a return arrangement for the Danish Royal Family consisting of a concert, exhibition and buffet. The event takes place at the National Museum.

March 31
In the morning, HM the Queen and HRH the Prince Consort take leave of HE President Parvanov and Mrs. Parvanova. The President will write the guest book and window pane. The rest of the day is devoted to politics and will thus be without royal participation. Whilst the President is at the Danish Parliament and talks to HE Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Mrs. Zorka Parvanova visits the porcelain factory "Royal Copenhagen". After a joint luncheon hosted by the Prime Minister, the couple depart for Bulgaria from Copenhagen Airport at 15:40.

Great to see Princess Alexandra attending the dinner :rolleyes:

norwegianne 03-29-2006 11:17 AM

Argh, it's frustrating. I heard the Marching band earlier than usual at work, but I didn't think about it being because of this... But the cars were still outside Amalienborg when I left work, so I took a picture...

marilla 03-29-2006 11:41 AM

I love Mary outfit, especially hat and pumps. And this suit is very smart and modern.

Princess_Beatrix 03-29-2006 12:38 PM

CP Mary looks stunning! I love this red hut! :)
Queen Margrethe seems to wear her favourite outfit. She looks great too, in her well-known dress.;)
