Crown Princess Mary on Economic Mission to Texas: March 10-13, 2019
The Palace announced today that Crown Princess Mary will be on an economic mission to Austin and Houston in Texas, USA,
from March 10 - March 13, 2019.
Details about the visit can be found here:

That's usually something M&F do together and sometimes Frederik alone.
But isn't Frederik going on a state visit in March to Argentina? So maybe it was decided that CP Marry can do this solo trip....she is certainly very capable.
She sure is.
And this is IMO an extra pad on her shoulder.
They wouldn't send Mary if they weren't sure she can "sell" on her own. Is able to mingle with suits, without saying anything she shouldn't. And is high ranking and interesting enough to attract the appropriate attention in her own right.
There is also a little politics in such a visit, in the sense that she is likely to drop by the governor of Texas to say officially hi.
To me this indicates that the politicians as well as the business people have full confidence in her.
I wonder if she'll visit Clear Lake School while in Houston? That would be a nice trip down memory lane for her -- and a treat for the students, too!
How exciting! Im sure Mary well do so well, she already had a little practice run going to Finland last year in Frederik's place.
It will be a busy March for the DRF: Frederik to Canada 3-6, Mary to Texas 10-13, and then the Queen and Frederik to Argentina 18-20.
"The campaign is a part of a multi-year push to promote Danish culture in the USA backed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture. Last year, Her Royal Highness helped to launch the campaign, which will strengthen Danish arts and culture throughout the USA. At that time, the launch took place in Seattle"
Mary sure is going to be busy in spring! This will be interesting to follow.

It's night in Texas now, but the royal family writes that Mary in the morning wil fly to Houston where she continues her official visit.
That's why the official program first starts at 2pm today.
Who's accompanying Mary, apart from her lady-in-waiting?
The Danish Minister for Culture Mette Bock is accompanying her.
Personally I can hardly stand the sight of her, but she is very competent!
