Catching up: Prince Joachim attends miltary conference, Princess Marie walks her dog, Prince Nikolai on the cover of VOGUE Ukraine

On March 21st, Prince Joachim attended the “From Soldat to Civilian” conference at Industrien Hus in Copenhagen.

Prince Joachim is the Colonel of the Reserve and a special advisor to the Chief of Defense. The conference aims to talk about how soldiers can be useful in their future civilian careers because of the skills they have and the experience they gathered during their years in the military. This event was not covered by the Danish Court so I don’t have more information about Prince Joachim’s speech except that he talked about his work with the Center for Reservestyrken in order to show the daily cooperation between soldiers and civilians in the reserve.

The Danish Royal Family spend Christmas in Marselisborg Palace!

This year, Queen Margrethe spends Christmas with her sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren in Marselisborg Palace in Aarhus. It is the family’s first Christmas without Prince Henrik so it made sense that the whole family would be reunited. It was even better since Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix were spending the holidays with their father as they alternate between their father and their mother. (They spent Christmas with Countess Alexandra last year and Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, Prince Henrik, and Princess Athena spent Christmas in France with Marie’s family)

As they usually do when spending Christmas at Marselisborg, the family attends two church services. On the 24th, the whole family attended the Christmas Eve service. In previous years, Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik would arrive in one car, then Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, and their children would follow in another car and Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, and their children would arrive in a third car. They followed the same pattern this time but with one change: Prince Felix and little Prince Henrik went to the church in Queen Margrethe’s car so that she would not be alone on the ride from the Palace to the church.

On the 25th, Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, and Princess Marie attended the Christmas Day service. Crown Prince Frederik left early as he does not take part in the Communion, just like his father didn’t.

Princess Marie wore recycled outfits to both services. She debuted the red coat to the same Christmas Eve service back in 2013 but it is still ufo. She wore the coat with her black Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps.

For the Christmas Day service, she wore the Baum und Pferdgarten coat she debuted on December 1st and her navy Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ suede pumps.
