Paris, France – The trip is part of Kate’s work with The Royal Foundation Centre For Early Childhood, and will also celebrate Jubilees happening in both Britain and Denmark.
It’s been a busy start to the year for the Duchess of Cambridge, who, most recently, was officially confirmed as the new patron of the Rugby Football League and Rugby Football Union. And her diary seems to be filling up rather fast, as today (Friday 6 February) it was announced that the royal will visit Copenhagen later this month on a working trip with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.
The duchess first launched the centre back in June 2021 through The Royal Foundation, with the intention to aid research, campaign and collaborate to drive awareness and action on the early years, the first years of a child’s life from conception through to age five.
This latest trip will take place between 22 – 23 February and will mark the first time that the duchess will be bringing the work of The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood to an international stage. The Centre aims to drive awareness of and action on the extraordinary impact of the early years for children, and it is the Royal Family’s hope that the trip will serve as an in – depth education into how Denmark’s world – leading approach to this stage of development.
During the visit, Her Royal Highness will spend time learning about how Denmark has created an enabling culture for early childhood development and how it harnesses the power of nature, relationships and playful learning in the first five years of life, as well as meeting with children, families, leading researchers and others working in the early education sector.
And of course, no royal around this time could ignore the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, and so the duchess will pay tribute to the historic ties Britain shares with Denmark and will celebrate the joint Jubilees taking place between Britain and Denmark (the Golden Jubilee of Margrethe II this year marks her five decades on the Danish throne).
Her Royal Highness will receive an official welcome to Denmark from Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II on the second day of her trip. The meeting is a timely reminder of the long – standing relationship between the two Royal Families and will coincide with the Platinum and Golden Jubilees being enjoyed this year.
