On Wednesday, Princess Marie unveiled her new portrait made by Mikael Melbye at the artist’s home. Prince Joachim was with her. The couple just got back from a couple of days of holiday in St Tropez, France. They will soon go to Cayx, in France, with their kids.
The new portrait of Marie was made in 2016 by Mikael Melbye and it is a private portrait. It will be hung in Joachim & Marie’s home in Klampenborg. It isn’t the first time Mikael Melbye made a portrait for the royal family. He made one of Queen Margrethe in 2011 and he made individual portraits of Prince Henrik, Prince Joachim and Prince Christian in 2014.
Marie and Joachim both really like the portrait as reported by SN.dk. Marie said : “I think it really shows the person I am. It’s important to me to be represented the way people know me “. Joachim agreed : “It’s so beautifully done! It couldn’t me more right! It’s amazing!”. You can see more photos here.
In this portrait, Marie is wearing an UFO top first worn in 2016 with her diamond earrings. She is also wearing her engagement ring as well as her custom made Christine Hvelplund ‘H’ and ‘A’ necklace. I really love this portrait as it looks just like Marie and the details are amazing!
For the unveiling of the portrait, Princess Marie wore a simple , recycled outfit ! She wore her black Zara jacket with an Emporio Armani top both first worn in 2012.
Her shoes are by Gianvito Rossi first worn in 2016 and she wore her favorite Christine Hvelplund ring.
What do you think of the portrait ?
This was the last official event of Prince Joachim and Princess Marie before their summer break. We might see them at Grasten Castle with the rest of the royal family at the end of July for the annual photoshoot but they haven’t taken part in it since 2014 so we don’t know if they will this year.
