I believe that part of the reason why they are visiting the US is to honor a university in Nebraska that is celebrating its 125th anniversary. Dana College is a Lutheran university that was founded by Danish immigrants.

Here is a link to their website (with a mention of the CP couple's visit):

The US has quite a few Danish Business interests as well as many families and institutions that were founded by Danish immigrants. It stands to reason that those endeavors would be supported by the current government, and the faces of those governments. It also happens to be that many Americans have an interest in royalty in general, so it is a good way to kill two birds with one stone so to speak. They royals present themselves and at the same time prove themselves worthwhile of the cost that they incur, while at the same time supporting their countrymen, and the history of the country. I think that it is an admirable way to make oneself relevant, especially in these tough economic times, when royalty might begin to seem superfluous to some. (Not me, but I can see where others might take that opinion.)

Old Town looks very charming! It looks like she was opening an exhibition. Do you know what type of exhibition it was?

It seems she hasn't had that many engagements lately. Perhaps it is due to the eastervacation.

In the calendar on the CP Couples webside two engagement are scheduled for the rest of april (this doesn't mean though that we will only see her on these dates as not all of her activities are listed in that calender).

The 28'th of april she will head the opening of the "Sun-campaign 2009" arranged by the Cancer Foundation.

The 30'th of april the CP Couple will head the opening of the exibition "For the Gods, Spirits and Ancestors" at Gl. Holtegaard.

I'm sure that her schedule will get busier in May and June.

During this time of year the Danish Royals have very little engagements. But then the pic up quite a bit, and more and more will be added. They also have numerous private engagements that are never published.

What would be considered 'a private engagement'?

I would imagine that private engagements include attending weddings, christenings, private parties, etc. Frederik and Mary recently attended an event for their children's pre-school. They were there as parents of children in the school, not in any sort of royal capacity. These types of things probably come up throughout the year. Frederik's sailing events might also fall under this category.

Private engagements are also meetings with their patronages, work meetings with the Mary Foundation, etc. These are not entered on to the actual calender, but a seperate section called "Other Activities" and only after the event has taken place. Pictures are rarely seen from these.
