Yesterday, Princess Marie was at the French Embassy in Copenhagen for the Prix Littéraire des Ambassadeurs (Ambassadors’ Literature Price). The Prix Littéraire des Ambassadeurs is a literary price created in 2002 by the ambassadors in Denmark of the countries taking part in the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), or the countries in which French language has a big influence.
Marie is Patron of the Prix Littéraire des Ambassadeurs since 2009. This Price aims to focus on cultural diversity and aims to promote the culture of French-speaking countries in Denmark. This year, Rwandan writer Scholastique Mukasonga won the price for her book ‘Notre-Dame du Nil’ (Our Lady of the Nile), published in French in 2012 and translated to Danish in 2014.
Princess Marie wore a new beautiful rose-print dress from Giambattista Valli and her favorite Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps with her Bottega Veneta clutch.
We’ll next see Marie on June 14th as she and Joachim will attend a reception for the Chamber of Commerce.
