Sep 18, 2015-

Danish Prince Frederick, who is on a four day Nepal visit, arrived at Besi Sahar in Lamjung on Thursday to meet the families affected by the April 25 earthquake.

People waiting for the Prince’s arrival failed to recognise simply dressed Frederick, who was wearing a black shoe, a casual pant, and shirt along with a neck scarf and carrying a side bag.

Prince Frederick arrived at Besi sahar-based Hotel Gateway Himal Resort in a Red Cross vehicle at 6pm yesterday. The Danish Crown Prince had requested that there be no welcome ceremony as this was a personal visit.

Prince Frederick took stock of the quake affected families and held meeting with Chief District Administrator and the team Security Agency deployed in the area.

A 15-membered team including the Danish Prince is scheduled to visit the quake-affected families at Pachol, Dhodeni and Pheleni VDCs and assess the situation after the Great Earthquake, informed Programme Manager at Nepal-based Danish Red Cross Prakash Aryal.
