King Frederik and Queen Mary of Denmark have begun their trip to Greenland.

On the first day of the visit, the couple arrived on the royal yacht, Dannebrog, in north Greenland at the Pituffik Space Base.

They then travelled to Qaanaaq to greet the townspeople who performed dances and songs at the sports hall. They also attended a reception at the Town Hall.

King Frederik and Queen Mary next visited Aasiaat where they were greeted by Mayor Ane Hansen and members of the municipal council.

A reception at Aasiaat Museum and Niels Egedes Plads followed with a cannon salute and choral singing at the museum and music and dancing at Niels Egedes Plads.

The King and Queen first visited Greenland 20 years ago while Crown Prince and Crown Princess.

Greenland is part of the Kingdom of Denmark and is located in North America. It borders Canada.
