Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark are due to travel to the Netherlands in November to lead a sizeable Danish business delegation.

This is the first royal trip announced since the COVID outbreak hit Europe earlier this year. Several royal families had to cancel or postpone foreign tours and state visits as a result of the pandemic back in March.

The Crown Prince Couple will travel to the Dutch kingdom from 2-3 November and will spend time in The Hague and Rotterdam. The trip is being billed under the slogan “Partnering for Green Transition” and will see Their Royal Highnesses attend conferences and seminars.

The Netherlands is Denmark’s sixth largest export market.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary travelled on business promotion trips in 2019, including a visit to France and another to South Korea. They have previously visited Chile, Japan, Sweden, and the US, among others.

The Danish Royal House said about these business promotional trips: “The objective of the visits has been to strengthen the relations between Denmark and the countries visited and to support the growth and position of Danish companies in the markets concerned.”

The itinerary will be released in due course. It is not yet known if they will meet with King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima or any other members of the Dutch Royal Family.
