Thanks a lot for all your updates, photos and information :thumbsup:

 

All in all, no much coverage so far? Or what? TV2 and DR use to travel with them on these big and busy official working trips and cover the visit a lot, but I still haven’t seen much from them. Despite such a busy programme and big visit and a exciting first day... Maybe it will come today as it’s not Sunday anylonger 😉

If you have time to keep an eye on the Danish press, it would be great ?!

Perhaps there will be more news in the Danish press when the business part of the visit starts. The first two days is culture.

A good feature in the TV2 News this morning from today's event.
Very nice pictures of the couple and beautiful landscape.
And Mary beautifully dressed in a Japanese inspired white lace dress and flower in her hair.

Thanks for the tip. In fact I thought it was from the dinner, since we didn't see any picture yet.

;):)

It seems to be difficult to get photos from the embassy dinners in general. It's the same with most foreign visits

Like their matching colours, and especially Mary's beautiful hairstyle. And envy them for visiting so nice places :-)
