That will be popular and get a lot of positive coverage. They are a nice couple and being close to M&F it will also be a warm meeting, with lots of laughter and fun.
I look forward to it. The Danish visit to Sweden was a great success.

A very business-like schedule!
Not much sparkle over this visit. Fortunately the couples are so good friends that their mutual interaction is worth watching in itself.
- The Crown Princess couple will stay with the Danish royal family in Amalienborg, says information officer Johan Tegel from the swedish royal court.
- The queen is on a private visit abroad, says information advisor Christian Meyer from the danish royal court to Svensk Damtidning.
Stora frågan inför Victorias och Daniels besök_ Var är Margrethe_ _ Svensk Dam
Here are some photos from this article about how close the Scandinavian royals, not least Frederik and Victoria are.
It's really little more than blah-blah, but there are some nice photos that you may like.
I especially like the photo with Mary and Haakon. It's a good relaxed photo.
Haakon and Mary photo is great :flowers:
But honestly if you didnt tell me the reason for the article, I would never have guessed from the photos. :ohmy:
They are all formal photos from official royal events. There is little showing the personal relationship between the royals. It would have been better if they showed some of the photos where they are together in their down time. There are plenty of those. Showing these families interact on a personal level as well. And not just on official duty and visits.
But like I said: A blah-blah article. :whistling:
Another fill-article, garnished with a few nice photos for your delight, see below.
This time slightly more interesting though.
Where is QMII during this visit?
The court merely says that QMII is abroad and that is private. It is speculated that she is still in Schleswig Holstein touring the places, that is full of archeological, historical and cultural things that can easily keep QMII busy for days!
The article also speculate that QMII has totally left this visit to M&F - and presumably the planning as well. M&F were as the CP-couple to accompany V&D most of the time anyway.
But here are the photos.
The airforce adjutant in the background of the last photo is Victoria's. She has her own adjutants, while Mary borrow hers from the staff of adjutants under QMII.
Victoria and Daniel were welcomed to the reception at the swedish ambassador's residence by ambassador Fredrik Jörgensen and his wife Marianne.
Swedish Press Agency published this photo of the press.
Victoria and Daniel came directly from Amalienborg Palace and rolled in seven minutes delayed in front of the dazzling white residence on Sankt Annæ Plads. But what smiles they offered!
It really shone from Crown Princess Victoria, in black and white leopard patterned silk with puff sleeves and sooty eye makeup.
- It's great to be here! she told Svensk Damtidning, with the greatest possible smile and her slightly hoarse voice.

:previous: Ah, the room they have so often been photographed receiving guests.
I notice both gentlemen have changed into something more comfortable. :cool::cool:
- I imagine they right now have their feet up, enjoying an evening brew, chatting away about children, job, funny experiences on the job, Haakon's shoes, joking, discussing how to stay fit with a back that could be better, see photos of each other's children and dogs, Frederik showing Daniel his latest paintings of contemporary art, "you simply gotta see these shoes, Victoria!", the twins appearing because they "cant sleep" and snuggling up to their parents while their ears are tuned on like parabolas... :tongue:
