Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, and Prince Nikolai attend Flag Day Ceremonies across the country

Today, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie were in Fredericia to attend ceremonies commemorating Flag Day. Flag Day takes place on September 5th each year and honors those who have served for Denmark and every year between 2011 and 2016, either the Crown Prince Couple or Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended the ceremonies in Copenhagen. However, since last year, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attend the ceremonies in Copenhagen while Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attend the ceremonies in another city.

 

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie first visited Ryes Kaserne were they were received by Colonel Soren Andersen. There, they took part in a wreath-laying ceremony.

Afterward, they attended a service at St Michaelis Church before attending a military parade.

In the afternoon, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie were received at Meldahls Town Hall where they met representatives from a shelter for veterans.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie then walked from the Town Hall to Klojhuset. This walk gave them the opportunity to meet with the crowd waiting for them.

In Klojhuset, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie took part in a lunch with veterans where one local veteran held a speech.

For the first time, Prince Nikolai also took part in the Flag Day ceremonies. Indeed, Prince Nikolai is now a student at Haerens Sergentskole in Varde and the school also had its own ceremony to commemorate the day.

For these somber ceremonies, Princess Marie wore her Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 jacket with a new white printed dress from Peserico, an Italian brand (with thanks to an anonymous reader). This jacket is her “funeral” jacket as she only wears it to attend somber events or funerals. The last time she wore it was for Prince Henrik’s funeral.

She paired the outfit with her new favorite combo: her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ black suede pumps and her Carlend Copenhagen ‘Aicha’ clutch. She wore the same accessories in Odense yesterday. Her earrings and her fascinator are old but sadly I don’t have any IDs for them.

Princess Marie officially welcomes new international students to the University of Southern Denmark

On Tuesday, Princess Marie was in Odense to take part in the official welcome ceremony of new international students at the University of Southern Denmark.

 

Princess Marie has been working with the SDU since 2009. Since she herself studied abroad and she has also learned a new culture and a new language upon becoming a Princess of Denmark, she works with the SDU to improve the experience of the new international students each year and to help strengthen the knowledge of university education and research.

After the ceremony, Princess Marie had the opportunity to meet with several students along with Principal Henrik Dam. Almost 1.000 international students from 83 different countries will spend this semester studying at SDU and Princess Marie said she was very happy to see that there were so many students interested in studying in Denmark.

Princess Marie wore a new Tara Jarmon black silk blouse. She wore the same blouse in red during the first day of the French state visit. She paired the blouse with her black Chanel skirt.

She wore her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ black suede pumps and her Carlend Copenhagen clutch. I believe her earrings might be new but I couldn’t find a good close up of them to be sure.

In addition to the Disaster Recovery Day, DEMA was celebrating the Zealand Emergency Management Agency’s 75th anniversary hence why Marie was visiting Naevsted.

There were a lot of exciting activities for the children and adults such as:

  • Become a firefighter for one day and get a diploma
  • See all emergency vehicles and special equipment
  • Cut into a car with a release tool
  • Get close to an exhilaration exercise
  • Meet actors like the Police, the Armed Forces, the Health Care and the Municipal Fire Department

Princess Marie had the opportunity to take part in several of these activities during the day. You can see a short video here.
