This morning, Princess Marie continued her week of engagements in Denmark at Mulernes Legatskole. Read more below
Princess Marie visited Mulernes Legatskole in Odense for her first official event as Patron of the Alliance Française in Denmark. She became Patron earlier this year, taking over from Prince Henrik. Alliance Française is a network of associations that has been working since 1884 to promote the interest in French language and culture in Denmark. The network deals with history, politics, music, cooking, film and literature.
At the school, Princess Marie met for the first time with the Danish departments of the Alliance Française. After Princess Marie was welcomed by the French ambassador to Denmark Caroline Ferrari at the school, there was a brief introduction to the Prince’s writing, an introduction to Alliance Français’s work, and a poem reading, where eight of the high school’s French students recited a poem from one of the Prince’s poetry collections.
Following the meeting, she opened an exhibition which includes a number of literary works by Prince Henrik. Prince Henrik donated a book in 2017 in the form of a selection of Prince’s own literary works to the association. The book includes some of Prince Henrik’s poems and cookbooks.
You can see videos of the event here. Charles-Henri Keller – one of Prince Henrik’s nephew- accompanied Marie to this event as usual.
