The first foreign tours for King Frederik and Queen Mary of Denmark have been revealed.

Following Danish tradition, the King and Queen will visit Norway and Sweden in their first official visits since Frederik ascended the throne on 14 January.

The Danish Royal House said in a press release: “In Denmark, there is a tradition that a new regent together with his spouse is the first to start travel activities with visits to neighbouring countries. Thus, the plan is for the King and HM the Queen to visit Sweden and Norway first.”

However, King Frederik will travel to Poland on an official business promotion beginning on 31 January. He will be joined by Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Climate Energy and Supply Minister Lars Aagaard and Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Jacob Jensen.

The trip to Poland has been planned for quite some time – prior to Queen Margrethe’s decision to abdicate. The King will visit Warsaw and the port city of Szczecin to promote Danish businesses.
