"HRH The Crown Princess has agreed to become patron of Danish National Girls' Choir.


The Crown Princess becomes the new patron of Danish National Girls Choir, which consists of 50 girls between the ages of 15 and 22,

and is daily led by chief conductor Philip Faber." The patronage is for a 5 year period.

Thanks mls.

So I wonder, is this the last of the organisations to be handed back to the royal family for which Countess Alexandra was patron? 

Taking responsibility for the choir patronage for just a 5 year period is a good idea. It's well known that the Crown Princess is already heavily commited with her patronages and the Mary Foundation. At the end of the 5 years the Crown Princely Couple's older children will be of an age where they may start taking on patronages.

No, it isn't. Countess Alexandra was patron of the choir from 1995 to 2014. Since then she also ended her patronage for UNICEF. And I think it's very likely that CP Mary will take over that one too in a couple of years perhaps (she already had an event with UNICEF last year). UNICEF used to be under the patronage of Queen Ingrid, then Queen Margrethe who gave it to Princess Alexandra. But traditionally it was under the patronage of the Queen (Consort).

"HRH The Crown Princess visited today as patron WHO Regional Director for Europe Dr. Zsuzsanna Jakab and received a briefing on WHO's focus areas and the

organization's efforts to improve health and living standards and discussed future joint activities.

During the visit, the Crown Princess saw a WHO / UNICEF photo exhibition on vaccines for vulnerable populations on the occasion of the European Immunization Week,

which takes place on 23-29. April 2018."
