Programme for Crown Princess Mary’s visit to Seattle released

Crown Princess Mary will visit Seattle this week for a visit that will see her highlight Danish arts and cultural programmes.

The Royal House revealed her schedule of events, and the Crown Princess will have a busy couple of days with events surrounding the official opening of the Nordic Museum.

Upon her arrival on Thursday, Crown Princess Mary will visit the Nordic Museum to attend their Launch Party. While there, Mary will reveal more information about the cultural promotion, “which…aims to create better conditions for Danish art and culture in the United States” in the next three years.

The Nordic Museum is, per its website, “the largest museum in the United States to honour the legacy of immigrants from the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.” It features arts and cultural exhibits to promote Nordic culture.

On Friday, Crown Princess Mary will speak at the University of Washington’s debate event for the empowerment of women and economic constraints. The debate has been organised by the Danish Embassy, the University of Washington and the International Center for Research on Women.

Later, she will visit the Novo Nordisk Research Centre to learn more about the work they do. In the evening, she will attend the Gala Dinner at the Nordic Museum and receive a tour of the facilities. Other attendees of the Gala Dinner include the President and First Lady of Iceland, the Secretary-General of Nordic Council of Ministers, all the ambassadors of Nordic countries, politicians, business leaders and other important personnel.

On Saturday, Crown Princess Mary’s last day in Seattle, she will attend the official opening of the Nordic Museum and give a speech to mark the occasion.

Crown Princess Mary is in Seattle through to Saturday. She last visited the United States in 2016 with Crown Prince Frederik, with stops in Washington D.C. and Boston.
