BOSTON — Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary are kicking off a two-day trade mission to Boston.

On Thursday, Frederik was scheduled to attend an event at Boston University highlighting ways to promote urban sustainability and climate resilience, including ways to ''future-proof'' cities.

The couple was expected to attend a business dinner with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh later Thursday and be greeted by Gov. Charlie Baker at the Statehouse on Friday.

Later, the prince will visit Harvard University, which he attended. The princess will visit Boston Children's Hospital.

The couple is leading a delegation of 60 Danish companies from the health care, agriculture, sustainability and maritime sectors — all of which are leading economic sectors in Denmark.
