Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are on a 2-day official visit to Iceland. Yesterday (18 June) they met Iceland’s President, Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, and his wife, Dorrit Moussaieff. After the meeting, the couple was given a tour of Harpa Concert and Conference Centre.
Later, the royal couple visited Hellisheidi geothermal power station located in the southern part of the country between Reykjavik and Selfoss, where they got an introduction to Iceland’s excellent use of its natural resources. The power station in Hellisheidi produces both heat and electricity generated from the heat of the Earth and Iceland is a pioneer within this field.
Victoria and Daniel also visited the company Össur global leader in the production of artificial limbs. Here they met the 13-year-old Milmar Snaer Örvarsson, who lost his leg due to cancer and now wears a special prosthesis.
Later that day, the Crown Princess Couple was invited to a dinner hosted by the President.
