Recap Day Seven (St Vincent) - Caribbean Tour 2016
November 26: Prince Harry was met off the boat at Kingstown Cruise Terminal Pier by the Governor General His Excellency Sir Frederick Ballantyne before attending a military parade at which he formally inspected the Guard. From there, Harry travelled to Kingstown’s Botanic Gardens where he toured the site, watching a number of cultural performances and planting a commemorative Baobab tree to mark the visit. Harry then visited the Vermont Nature Trail where he walked a short part of the trail and unveiled the final of the four dedications to The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy on this tour. Next, Harry made an unscheduled visit at a hillside village called Vermont on the island of St Vincent and met members of the public. He also visited the lookout point for the Argyle International Airport and toured the construction sight. That afternoon, Harry visited one of St Vincent’s beaches to learn more about the country’s initiatives which inspire young people through education in schools to care about and protect the endangered population of sea turtles on St Vincent’s shores. Before departing St Vincent, Harry attended a reception hosted by the Governor General and the Prime Minister at the Cruise Ship Terminal where he honored Duke of Edinburgh Award winners and met some of the Queen’s Young Leaders in the nation.
Mary and Frederik had front row seats, at Denmark’s biggest fundraising event, Danmarks Indsamling (Denmark’s Collection), on Saturday evening:
The Crown Prince couple arrived at the cruise ship terminal in Copenhagen, where the show took place, shortly before 9 pm and took their seats on the front row among a large group of very happy high school students.
During the event, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik also had time to talk to some of the high school students who were sitting next to them.
From their seats Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik clearly enjoyed themselves and were laughing and smiling as they applauded the many different acts. Among the performers were the Christiansborg All Stars, a band formed for the night of Danish politicians from different political parties.
The purpose of the collection is to raise money for some of the poorest countries in the world to help them reach the eight FN 2015 goals. The event, which takes place annually, has existed since 2007 and is always broadcast live on the Danish television channel DR1.
This year, the Denmark’s Collection raised more than 101 million Danish kroner.
