One thought on “Princess Marie attends first meeting as Special Cultural Representative + Program announced for Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee

  1. Marie looks all business-like in this Maje jacket. I wish she had worn a lighter colored blouse underneath it to lighten up the outfit and show it off a little more.

    Yea for celebrations next year! I can’t wait!!!
