This has been a very lovely visit with a impressive programme for Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary. 

They’re doing a wonderful work and are the best representatives of Denmark, and very popular. It is always a pleasure to see them together. Lovely

 

This visit was busy and great, but perhaps due to election campaign in Denmark these weeks not covered as well as the Crown Prince Couple's visit usually are? Both DR and TV2 have covered the visit in their news broadcasts, but they often send their own reporters with the Crown Prince Couple. Maybe I just haven't seen them, maybe the visit was just more lowkey than other visits? Or maybe I am just wrong :)
