Today, Princess Marie, Prince Joachim and their kids, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena visited Tonder Festival.
The Tonder Festival is a well-known folk music festival in Europe. The festival was founded in 1975 and Marie is Patron since 2009. She has attended every year since then, except for last year’s edition as she had to pull out because of Nikolai’s 18th birthday. Since 2013, Joachim, Henrik, and Athena join Marie at the event. Next year will be Marie’s 10th visit to the Festival as Patron and she said that there might a special event to commemorate this: “I do not know. Perhaps something special must happen. I enjoy being here”
The family had a busy program for this year’s visit. After the official welcome, they visited the new children area. Prince Henrik and Princess Athena were pleased with all the new activities and they asked to stay for longer than planned so the family had to miss their next event, a visit to the Wadden Sea.
Afterward, they attended Vishtèn’s show. Prince Henrik and Princess Athena were sat on the shoulders of Prince Joachim and mayor Henrik Frandsen, respectively, just like in 2016.
Before heading backstage to enjoy drinks and food as well as some private time, Princess Marie talked to the reporters about the development of the Festival since her first visit back in 2009: “A big development, I think. Now it’s bigger and it gets bigger and bigger. There are a lot of different activities for children too. They have actually gotten a whole new area here for children and families. And there are really many places to eat and have fun. And more and more musicians come from all over the world. From Ireland, USA, Canada and they are really skilled. It’s really a pleasure to be here.”

For this fun family outing, Princess Marie wore a new Charlotte Sparre blouse. The white Sea Life blouse is available here for 206€ (on sale). She paired the top with a new Uniqlo jacket and jeans.
She wore her Chanel ballet flats ( which she already wore when she visited the festival in 2014 and in 2016) and a new black Longchamp bag.
Princess Athena wore a cute Kaporal ‘Faza’ jacket. The jacket is reversible and can be worn in grey or in floral print.
We’ll next see Prince Joachim and Princess Marie on August 28th when they take part in the first day of the French State Visit to Denmark.
