23 February 2022

The Duchess of Cambridge will receive an official welcome from Denmark’s Queen Margrethe on the second day of her trip to the Scandinavian nation.

Kate has travelled to Copenhagen to learn first-hand from academics and health professionals about their country’s approach to the early years development of children that has made it a world leader.

But the two-day visit is also paying tribute to the historic ties Britain shares with Denmark and celebrates the countries’ joint jubilees – the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the Golden Jubilee of Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II, both of which fall in 2022.

Denmark’s monarch will greet her guest along with her daughter-in-law Crown Princess Mary of Denmark at Christian IX’s Palace in Copenhagen.

Later Kate and Mary, who have met a number of times in the UK and Denmark, will visit the Danner Crisis Centre.

The shelter helps women and children who have been exposed to domestic violence which is supported by the Mary Foundation, founded by the Crown Princess in 2007.

The duchess will begin her day by visiting a Forest Kindergarten, a teaching concept where children have lessons outside that focus on their social and emotional development rather than just on academic skills like numeracy and literacy.
