On October 16th, Landsforeningen Autisme, the National Association for Autism, announced that their Patron, Princess Marie, had invited five children and their siblings to spend the afternoon with her in Tivoli Park.

Princess Marie wanted to invite the siblings and families to visit Tivoli with her and the children as she knows that it can often be difficult for the siblings to feel at ease and find their place in a family where a lot of the attention can be focused on the children with autism. Billed-Bladet reports that Marie had a lot of fun with the children.

Princess Marie wore a new coat by Emporio Armani. The coat is made of mohair and has a Prince of Wales print.
