On their last official day in New York City, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II and H.R.H. Prince Henrik of Denmark were quite busy to say the least.
In the morning, Her Majesty visited Lincoln Center where she met the President and Executive Director of the New York Philharmonic and the Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. Soon, they ushered the queen into the building where she was treated to a special classical music concert.
Soon, she was off to have lunch with the Friends of the Royal Danish Ballet. Then Her Majesty rushed over to visit Scandinavia House to participate in the 100th anniversary of the Scandinavian Foundation.
Meanwhile, H.R.H. Prince Henrik was busy hanging out with the employees at Maersk, Inc. The prince consort was given a private tour of the company and discussed boring business matters. After that he bolted on over to Arla Foods, Inc. where he was given another tour and a lovely reception.
Later on this evening, the reigning couple will attend an exhibit entitled Centuries of Sterling Icons at the Georg Jensen store.
Tomorrow, H.R.H. Prince Henrik will continue his tour of the United States by visiting Solvang, CA as well as Stanford University and the Danish Innovation Center in Palo Alto, CA. As for Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II, she’s flying home to Denmark.
