Tonight, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie , along with Crown Princess Mary, attended a gala dinner hosted by Queen Margrethe in honor of the Army at Fredensborg Palace.
This gala takes place every three year and honors the soldiers receiving the King Christian X Medal for Good Service awarded to soldiers with more than 25 years of service. The award was created on September 26th 1945, on King Christian X’s birthday, and is awarded on the same day each year.
When they arrived, Prince Joachim told photographers he was looking forward to the evening as he works in the military himself. Indeed, he works daily a special advisor on developing a new full-force concept that will strengthen the use of volunteers in the Home Guard and personnel of the reserve, without being paid obviously, and he is Colonel in the Reserve.
Here are videos of the arrival :
For this gala dinner, Princess Marie looked absolutely gorgeous in her new black gown from Danish designer Ole Yde. The gown was presented in pink in the designers’s Fall 2016 Collection.
She paired the dress with her trusted Bally shoes (first worn in 2012) and her old UFO clutch from 2010 with her favorite Christine Hvelplund earrings and bracelet.
We’ll next see Prince Joachim and Princesse Marie on October 3rd for the Opening of Parliament !
