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.

I aftes havde Hendes Majestæt Dronningen indbudt til mindekoncert for Prins Henrik. Koncerten, der blandt andet bød på Musettas arie fra La Bohème og Gioachino Rossinis duet “Un soave non so che” fra La Cenerentola, fandt sted i Fredensborg Slotskirke i anledning af årsdagen for Prinsens bisættelse. Det var Det Kongelige Danske Musikkonservatorium, der havde stået for musikprogrammet, der afspejlede Prins Henriks livslange interesse for musik. 📸 Keld Navntoft, Kongehuset ©️
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.
She paired the look with her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ glitter pumps and her ufo clutch from 2007.
For the jewels, she wore new Christine Hvelplund earrings with her two diamonds Christine Hvelplund bracelets and a new Christine Hvelplund flower-shaped ring.
We’ll next see Prince Joachim and Princess Marie on the 25th.
