Danish Royals

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark Visit Mexico City. (VIDEO)

fmgalla200901smallOn Monday, November 11, 2013, Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark began their three-day official visit to Mexico City, Mexico at the invitation of the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto.

According to the Danish royal court the purpose of the visit is to strengthen bilateral ties in the areas of health, agriculture, and climate-friendly technology between Mexico and Denmark.

The day began with a visit to the Fundación CTHDUCA where the crown prince couple were “…introduced to the foundation’s work with education and care for people with Down’s Syndrome.”

Soon, they were off to visit the Museo Nacional de Antropología where they viewed several exhibits.  Two hours later the crown prince couple met with the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto and First Lady Angélica Rivera de Peña, at Los Pinos.

Later in the afternoon, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary visited the Papalote Museo del Niño, and then met with the mayor of Mexico City, Miguel Ángel Mancera Espinosa, where he gave the crown prince couple the keys to the city.

In the evening, future king and queen of Denmark will attend a charity concert at El Plaza Condesa featuring a performance by some Danish band I never heard of.  Sorry.   😦
