Someday My Prince Will Come!

On October 8, Her Majesty The Queen of Denmark and His Royal Highness The Prince Consort were pleased to announce the engagement of their son, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince to Miss Mary Elizabeth Donaldson. The wedding will take place on Friday May 14, 2004 at 4 p.m in the Cathedral of Copenhagen. After the wedding ceremony, the royal couple will ride through central Copenhagen in a horsedrawn state coach by a route encompassing Vestergade, the Town Hall Square, Strøget, Kongens Nytorv, through Bredgade and finally Amalienborg Palace, where they will appear on the balcony of the Christian VII Palace.

 

Along the route, especially on Strøget and on the squares passed, gigantic flower decorations in red, white and blue will be placed, and on Amagertorv, a choir of 100 singers will burst out in song from the windows of the buildings surrounding the square as the state coach with the royal couple enters the square. Large screens will be put up at Rådhuspladsen (the Townhall Square), Gammel Torv and Kongens Nytorv since everybody won't be able to get a full view of the proceedings. The ensuing wedding celebrations will take place at Fredensborg Castle, North Sealand, where the wedding celebrations of both Queen Margrethe and Prince Joakim were held as well.

After the honeymoon (destination unknown!), the Crownprince and crownprincess will join the Queen and the Prince Consort for a voyage bound for Greenland onboard the royal yacht Danneborg starting on June 22.

Back in Denmark, the couple - again onboard the Dannebrog - will call at the ports of Århus (July 26th), Aalborg (July 27th, Odense (July 28th, and finally Sønderborg (July 29th) for town celebrations.

Miss Donaldson is a British and an Australian citizen and is currently a member of the Presbyterian church. She has agreed to become a member of the Evangelical-Lutheran church and to apply for Danish citizenship, thus relinquishing her British and Australian citizenship ties.

The marriage ceremony will be performed by the Bishop of Copenhagen, Erik Norman Svendsen assisted by Professor Christian Thodberg in the Cathedral of Copenhagen, Our Lady's Church.
