7- 9. April 2019 - Crown Prince Frederik in the Mediterranean



"Today, H.R.H. The Crown Prince returned home from a two-day visit to the frigate Niels Juel, which is currently guarding a French aircraft carrier

group in the Mediterranean.

Here, His Royal Highness met the crew, which counts 140 men, and which consists of marines and personnel from the Air Force and the Army. Niels Juel, along with French, British and American ships, is tasked with looking after the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle. The crew does that by solving maritime safety tasks, where they, among other things, ensure free navigation in risk areas and control the airspace around the aircraft carrier."





"For two days I have visited the Danish frigate Niels Juel, who is currently sailing in the Mediterranean. Here, the frigate and its crew help protect the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle. Niels Juel does this by solving maritime security tasks, such as. ensuring free navigation through escort and defense of ships in risk areas.


In the pictures you can see French fighter aircrafts, which facilitate from the aircraft carrier deck. It is also among Niels Juel's tasks to handle the control of the aircraft carrier, and they do so by keeping an eye on the air traffic. During my visit I have been informed about Niels Juel and Charles de Gaulle's many tasks. In addition, I have greeted the crews and gained insight into the many complex tasks that the Danish Defense solves in this marine military operation. It has been a great experience. ”H.R.H. The Crown Prince."

Yesterday, 9th April, Crown Princess Mary and CEO of Global Fashion Agenda visiting companies.



Crown Princess Mary:


"Yesterday, together with the CEO of Global Fashion Agenda, Eva Kruse, I visited four Danish companies, Chr. Hansen, Novozymes, Designers Remix and Bestseller,

all thinking in sustainable strategies and solutions and contributing to the sustainability agenda.


The four companies are just a small sample of the many committed people in Denmark who think new and sustainable solutions. I visited the businesses because the important sustainability agenda interests me a lot but also as a prelude to Copenhagen Fashion Summit in May, which is just about creating a sustainable fashion industry.


I would like to learn more about what it takes for a company to think sustainably as a business strategy and also about the potential for growth that sustainable solutions bring.
The four companies are just a small sample of the many committed forces in Denmark who think new and in sustainable solutions."
