Prince Harry starts his two-day visit to Copenhagen

Representing his grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Harry will begin his two-day trip to Copenhagen, Denmark today on request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Starting off, Prince Harry will visit Amalienborg Palace and meet with Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. The two have met before including the 2012 Olympics. The Queen Mother’s funeral, the Diamond Jubilee Lunch among others.

From there, Harry will head to KPH Projects. The campaign allows for start-ups and small businesses to connect to improve the society around them through working with social, cultural and environmental issues.

After KPH Projects, Harry will visit GAME headquarter. GAME is focused on creating social change through youth-led street sports and culture.

To end his first day, Prince Harry will attend a reception hosted by the UK Ambassador to Denmark at Tivoli Gardens.

On 26 October, Prince Harry will start the day off on a tasty note. The prince will head to a Danish bakery for the ‘One of Us program. While there he will meet users of the program and its volunteers which are all focused on changing the perception of mental health. A passion in which Prince Harry has been working on, alongside his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with their Heads Together Campaign.

Another visit close to his heart will be seeing a project that works to rehabilitate wounded Danish Armed Forces soldiers. Prince Joachim and members of the Denmark Invictus Game team are also involved. Prince Harry just saw many of the team members last month in Toronto as they competed at the 2016 Invictus Games.

Finishing off his quick trip will be a conference on ‘Making a Difference’ held in the Ørestad Gymnasium at a High School. The school is part of a collection of global changemaker schools; they have partner schools in the UK.

Upon returning to the UK, it will be a short stay before Prince Harry heads to Chicago for the Obama Foundation Summit held on 31 October.
