Crown Prince of Denmark visits the Pope


Prince Frederick, heir to the Danish throne, and his wife Princess Mary visited the Pope.

“Your Holiness, good morning”.

The meeting was very cordial. Although the topics discussed were not made public, it is likely that one was climate change since the prince is also concerned about this issue. 

As a gift, they brought him this vase from the Royal Copenaghen shop, the famous porcelain factory.             

“An old tradition...”

“A modern expression of a very traditional flower...”

They also brought him a book with photos of their official residence, which they have just restored.

“The interesting element it is that we introduced contemporary art.”

The pope gave them a medallion and the four great documents of his Pontificate. 

Denmark is the oldest kingdom in Europe, and Prince Frederick is called to be its king. He and his wife enjoy great popularity, and their four children are greatly appreciated by the Danes.
