Yesterday, Princess Marie was in Birkerod to open the international BIGMUN conference.
The conference is hosted by the MUN (Model United Nations) Society in Birkerod’s high school. It is a fictional scenario of an UN General Assembly allowing students from invited schools to discover how an UN General Assembly works for four days and to discuss and learn about international politics as the BIGMUN conference follows the same rules and protocols as the real UN conference.
Princess Marie gave the opening speech of the conference. Marie is patron of the danish branch of the UN organization for education and culture, as well as the danish branch of UNESCO and of the danish AIDS Fondation. All these topics are on the agenda of this conference.24 schools were invited this year : 10 from Denmark , 4 from Germany, 3 from the Netherlands, 2 from Spain, 1 from Sweden, 1 from Scotland, 1 from Lebanon and 1 from the USA. You can listen to a part of her speech in the video above and you can read it (in english) here.
For this event, Princess Marie wore a new Emporio Armani white jacket with a new black Zara turtleneck and black pants
She also wore her By Malene Birger clutch and what looks like her Sergio Rossi ankle boots. She wore an old brooch with small diamond earrings.
We’ll next see Princess Marie tomorrow when she’ll open the Summer in Tonder exhibition.
