CP Frederik and CP Mary left Copenhagen Airport around noon today. Søren Hedegaard posted for 7 hours ago a picture on Facebook of him in the airplane with the text: On my way to Washington D.C. The entire Danish delegation usually travles together.

This means that Frederik and Mary right now must have landed in Washington - and in a few hours are ready for tonight's reception and the trips first official event.

Then the Crown Prince couple have a night where they can hopefully get some rest and get rid of the worst jetlag before they tomorrow morning begin 4 packed days.

Wish them a good trip. Always enjoy follow these :)

It's a dress that makes you fear some 'culotte' thing is going on... :lol: One of my least favorites from Mary's impressive wardrobe.

Looking forward to the rest of the visit!

Lucky you, wish I was there with you.

Certainly is a packed program for Frederik and Mary but this is the way for them, always busy,

Picture of F&M arriving:

Video of F&M arriving from the Danish Royal Family's Facebook:

Over 60 Danish companies joining in the visit og both DR's TV-Avisen and TV2 Nyhederne are travled along, so I guess we can enjoy good coverage also from the main Danish tv-stations. I saw several clips already in my morning tv-news today.

Now F&M are sleeping, but not much sleep for Frederik... He will soon have his first official event at 6.45 am.

Muhler 09-28-2016 07:46 AM

Yes, Frederik has a tendency to suffer from jetlag, while Mary at least appears to be more resistant.

USA is the third largest market for DK, (Germany being the largest, and Britain I believe fourth or fifth), so the commerce delegation is spearheaded by some serious heavy-weights among Danish companies!

And noting that Mary's hairdresser, Søren Hedegaard, is going, we can expect Mary being seriously dressed up during this visit.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 02:25 PM.
