Family Events

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie join the Danish royal family at a concert for Prince Henrik

On February 13th last year, Prince Henrik died in his home of Fredensborg Castle. The funeral took place on February 20th and tonight, Queen Margrethe organized a concert to commemorate the one year anniversary. Surprisingly, Princess Benedikte, Countess Alexandra and Prince Henrik’s family did not attend the concert.

The Royal Danish Academy of Music was responsible for the music tonight, aiming to reflect Prince Henrik’s lifelong interest in music. After the concert, Queen Margrethe hosted a dinner.

The royal family didn’t have any official events last week and the Crown Prince family was photographed skiing in Verbier, Switzerland so we can assume that Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, and their children were also on holidays.

You can see a video of the arrival here.

Princess Marie wore her Michael Kors sequinned top with a new black skirt.

“Her Royal Highness Princess Marie visited the Automation office space, where the princess had a chance to greet all our colleagues in the Automation team and have in-depth talks with our colleagues with autism.

One of our colleagues showed the princess our automation infrastructure where the programs modules to ensure that all our internal services can be automated. Another colleague showed how services are created to perform Nordea’s internal banking services and the self-service portal where customers order different items. A third colleague told about his participation in #Hack19. Hackathon is a two-day event where ideas are developed by employees across Nordea.

The princess was keen to learn more – she asked questions about favourite code language, where they had worked before and how it was to work for Nordea. Christoffer from Automation governance says: It was nice that the patron of the National Association for Autism showed interest in how we feel about working at Nordea. Princess Marie seemed genuinely interested in what we do, and she was very nice to talk to.”

We hosted a small reception where the princess had the opportunity to have more informal chats with all the team members. “Personally, I hope the visit will create more focus on employing colleagues with autism, both at Nordea and elsewhere,” says Majbritt Gyldengren, who is the coordinator for Nordea’s employees with autism.

The hiring of our seven colleagues was conducted through Specialisterne, which is a socially innovative company working to enable one million jobs for people with autism and similar challenges through social entrepreneurship, corporate sector engagement and a global change in mindset.”

 

Marie wore her old Ralph Lauren jacket with her Sergio Rossi boots. Both her earrings and her brooch are repeats. I can’t tell anything more about her outfit.
