Today is Princess Athena’s 5th birthday! Princess Athena is Prince Joachim and Princess Marie’s second child. She has three older brothers, Princes Nikolai, Felix and Henrik. Kongehuset released three photos taken by Princess Marie.
Today was also the start of the State Visit from Iceland to Denmark that will end on the 26th. Usually , the entire royal family welcomes the Presidential couple at the airport but the President and First Lady of Iceland arrived in Copenhagen last night so they were officially welcomed to Denmark by Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik at Amalienborg Palace at 10:00.
The couple then met with Denmark’s Prime Minister at Christianborg Palace. In the afternoon, the Royal couple and the Presidential couple attended events in the Palace. Tomorrow, the Presidential couple will spend the day with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.
We will see Marie at two events related to the state visits, as usual. The first is tonight’s gala dinner and the second is the farewell reception tomorrow. For tonight’s gala dinner, she wore a new black dress with her old UFO velvet clutch and her old black pumps.
The new gown was custom by Danish designer Ole Yde. The brand thought “she looked radiant in it”. This is the fourth Ole Yde gown worn by Princess Marie since 2013. She also wore her wedding tiara with her Christine Hvelplund earrings and a new Christine Hvelplund bracelet.
