The Danish Royal Family spend Christmas in Marselisborg Palace!

This year, Queen Margrethe spends Christmas with her sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren in Marselisborg Palace in Aarhus. It is the family’s first Christmas without Prince Henrik so it made sense that the whole family would be reunited. It was even better since Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix were spending the holidays with their father as they alternate between their father and their mother. (They spent Christmas with Countess Alexandra last year and Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, Prince Henrik, and Princess Athena spent Christmas in France with Marie’s family)

As they usually do when spending Christmas at Marselisborg, the family attends two church services. On the 24th, the whole family attended the Christmas Eve service. In previous years, Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik would arrive in one car, then Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, and their children would follow in another car and Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, and their children would arrive in a third car. They followed the same pattern this time but with one change: Prince Felix and little Prince Henrik went to the church in Queen Margrethe’s car so that she would not be alone on the ride from the Palace to the church.

On the 25th, Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, and Princess Marie attended the Christmas Day service. Crown Prince Frederik left early as he does not take part in the Communion, just like his father didn’t.

Princess Marie wore recycled outfits to both services. She debuted the red coat to the same Christmas Eve service back in 2013 but it is still ufo. She wore the coat with her black Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps.

For the Christmas Day service, she wore the Baum und Pferdgarten coat she debuted on December 1st and her navy Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ suede pumps.

On the 24th, Princess Athena wore a new coat by Zara.


We won’t see the Danish royal family until January 1st when they’ll attend the traditional New Year Gala Dinner. Queen Margrethe will make her annual speech on New Year’s Eve.

Princess Marie and the Danish Food Bank visit Ishoj

Today, Princess Marie woke up very early to join the Danish Food Bank in Ishoj.

Indeed, Princess Marie and the Danish Food Bank arrived at 7:15am at Gildbroskolen in Ishoj to give students breakfast in the school’s café. The Food Bank supplies food for 150 places in the Copenhagen area and Ishoj was their stop early this morning.

The Food Bank delivers food that is either too close to the expiry date or has damage to the packaging and therefore can not be sold in stores. Giving them to the Food Bank helps reduce food waste which is something Princess Marie is very passionate about. She visited the Food Bank earlier this year.

You can watch a video of the event here.

Princess Marie wore a very warm outfit for this event. She wore the Parajumpers coat which she debuted on a trip to Greenland last year. She paired it with a grey turtleneck sweater that she owns since 2015 at least.

She chose to wear checked trousers that she first wore only a year ago while visiting the H.C Andersen Children’s Hospital. We were already suspecting that they were Zara back then but couldn’t find the right model. Since we got slightly better photos today, I managed to find the pants. They are indeed from Zara and they have a ruffle detail on the pockets.

Marie also debuted new black ankle boots and they are also from Zara! They are available here for €39,95. I believe she also wore new diamond hoops earrings but I haven’t managed to find them yet.

This was Princess Marie’s last event of the year but I believe we will see the entire royal family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
