What have the Danish royals been up to lately?
Queen Margrethe & Prince Henrik.
Tuesday, 9. November: The Regent Couple were hosts at a concert and reception for the diplomatic corps at Christiansborg Castle (seat of the Parliament). Crown Princess Mary and Princess Benedikte also attended. Mary’s husband Frederik was in Greece.
In this case the DRF are really working on behalf of the Foreign Ministry and it’s also a nice opportunity for the resident ambassadors to mingle.
Friday, 12. November: Prince Henrik attended the Alliance Francaises Jubilee at the Academy for Commerce in Copenhagen. Alas, the Danish world press didn’t show much interest!
Saturday, 13. November: Queen Margrethe watched the gala finals for The Lauritz Melchior Singing Competition in Aalborg Congress and Cultural Center (the Danish press corps is not that much into culture as well, it would appear).
Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary.
Monday, 8. November: Crown Prince Frederik attended the conference Global Green Growth 2010, in Copenhagen. The environment being something Frederik has decided to put focus on.
Monday: Crown Princess Mary attended the inauguration of forest-helper project at Boserup Forest, near Roskilde. Here are number of mentally handicapped were appointed “foresters assistants”. It’s basically protected jobs. Mary up ended being almost cross-examined about her pregnancy by the very enthusiastic forest helpers.
Tuesday to Thursday: Frederik was in Athens, Greece. Where he took part in the International Sailing Federation gala dinner and also at Rolex World Sailor of the Year Awards. Sailing being one of Frederik’s absolute favorite pastimes.
Prince Joachim & Princess Marie.
Wednesday, 10. November: Princess Marie opened the EGMON conference 2010 in Copenhagen. The topic for the conference was UN, criticism and reform.
The participants were young people from all over the world and the purpose was to make this conference resemble a genuine UN forum as much as possible. So the attendees had to argue on behalf of their respective country, irrelevant of their own personal opinion.
You simply must know more, right? No problem, just go to the Danish Royals Forum and read all about it.Filed under Denmark
