Joachim and Marie get on their bikes in Mexico

Monday March 8, 2010

Denmark's Prince Joachim and Princess Marie took to the streets of Mexico City on two wheels on Saturday.

The royal couple, currently on an official visit to Mexico, looked to be having a ball as they accompanied the city's mayor on the jaunt, which they made before opening a new bicycle-themed exhibition.

Their trip has seen them take part in a string of other cultural engagements, notably the inauguration of a display of costumes and props designed by Queen Margrethe for a new film.

The presentation, at Mexico City's Franz Mayer Museum, features items created by the monarch in her role as production designer on Danish movie Wild Swans.

An accomplished painter and dressmaker, the queen also worked as a screenwriter and has a small role in the film. 

In addition, Joachim and Marie took advantage of their trip to attend the Mexican premiere of the movie and visit the nearby Teotihuacan pyramids.
