I'm looking forward to following her visit there. Two busy days of engagements that should hopefully generate media coverage.

I think the BB headline to the video, Iceflower posted, is fitting: Mary received like a queen (consort).

Because she was.
If we are to follow the international protocol - strictly - It was notch below receiving a head of state, which would usually take place at the airport (but not always).
Being taken straight to the President's residence, rather than being welcomed by the PM first, is a very warm welcome, diplomatically speaking.

Mary would at some point, no matter what, have visited the President. As an official representative of the Danish head of state and on an official visit, that is simply a must. But the closeness of the relationship between countries can sometimes be read in when that visit takes place.

I find it to be a very big show of confidence in Mary, that she is leading an official visit on the exact same level as her husband. And being received at the exact same level as it would be expected Frederik would, had he visited Lithuania solo.

Agreed Muhler. I also saw that she witnessed an F16 fly over at the Presidential Palace. She then went on to meet the Parliament speaker and PM as well. She was also met at the airport by the Foreign Vice Minister. I posted a link to photos above. She is being treated completely like the Queen (consort) so far. And so far there is a ton of coverage of this visit and it has barely started.

Edited to add reports re engagements today:

Thank you Izzie for the updates. Mary looks so well, no doubt a heavy hitter in the DRF. Agree Muhler, this is such a show of support in Mary's ability and confidence. She is a pro.

Other NATO countries take turn in having units stationed in the Baltic countries. Especially smaller countries.
They are really human shields to prevent a certain country from doing another Crimea in the Baltic.
Hence why Danish fighters are stationed in Lithuania.

Danish military units are almost constantly present in one or more of the Baltic countries, and have quietly been so for many years now.

Mary will be meeting with Danish troops stationed in Lithuania tomorrow. I believe that is her last engagement of the trip per the schedule.

So far there has been coverage of the more "political" (for lack of a better word) portion of this trip with the meetings with the President, Parliament speaker and PM. She's also done the customary laying of a wreath. She also had events today at a museum exhibition, concert and dinner at the Danish embassy. Hoping that there is some coverage of that as well.

Here is an IG story of Mary at the museum. Also, the IG stories that follow are also of her visit to the museum and speech.

Absolutely.

For Lithuania this is very much a political visit and they are rolling out the red carpet for a close ally in the living embodiment of Mary.

As you may know Lithuania is facing a huge refugee (or migrants if you prefer) influx across their border to Belarus. And due to Western, including EU, sanctions against Belarus, the dictator there, Lukashenko, is using refugees as retaliation to annoy the West and in particular EU as much as possible.
- With the help of whom, do you ask? Well, refugees can't just walk up to Belarus they have to be flown in, or pass through Russia or Ukraine. And since Belarus is an ally of Russia and Ukraine and Russia are currently fighting a proxy war, the border between Belarus and Ukraine is well guarded. So someone is transporting refugees to Belarus. And the authorities in Belarus drive them close to the border and point the way... That's a fact. The refugees are saying so themselves.
Thousands of refugees are putting a strain on the Baltic countries.

As such the border is being cordoned off by Lithuania, with the more or less full approval of EU.
DK is a hawk within EU in regards to immigration and DK has voiced an open and vocal support for Lithuania in this respect, including donating 15 kilometers of barbed wire fencing to Lithuania.
And Mary being received with full honors, perhaps more than is strictly speaking correct protocol, Lithuania is showing their appreciation.
The flight pass by the Danish F16's is not just because Mary has pretty brown eyes, that's a political statement of support as well.

This visit is very much a political visit! - While at the same time being plausible deniable as being that.

- Nooo, nothing political to be seen here. It's merely our Crown Princess visiting a neighboring country. That she has a heavy entourage of Danish ministers with her is merely an emphasis of friendly relations and goodwill. That she is received by the Lithuanians almost as if she was the head of state, is merely because the Lithuanians are nice people.

To sum up, very cynically, this is so much a political visit.
For once trade and export take second place.
