Crown Prince Frederik, his wife Mary and their four children arrived in Greenland on Friday for a week-long official visit. 
 
The first stop for the Crown Prince Couple was the small village Igaliko, with its total of 30 inhabitants. All four children – Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine – were given wool jumpers as a welcome gift. 
 
 
The royals also visited Narsaq on Friday, where they made stops at a slaughterhouse, a cultural centre and an elderly home. 
 
The programme for the rest of the week can be seen at the Royal House’s official website
