Princess Marie officially welcomes new international students to the University of Southern Denmark

On Tuesday, Princess Marie was in Odense to take part in the official welcome ceremony of new international students at the University of Southern Denmark.

 

Princess Marie has been working with the SDU since 2009. Since she herself studied abroad and she has also learned a new culture and a new language upon becoming a Princess of Denmark, she works with the SDU to improve the experience of the new international students each year and to help strengthen the knowledge of university education and research.

After the ceremony, Princess Marie had the opportunity to meet with several students along with Principal Henrik Dam. Almost 1.000 international students from 83 different countries will spend this semester studying at SDU and Princess Marie said she was very happy to see that there were so many students interested in studying in Denmark.

Princess Marie wore a new Tara Jarmon black silk blouse. She wore the same blouse in red during the first day of the French state visit. She paired the blouse with her black Chanel skirt.

She wore her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ black suede pumps and her Carlend Copenhagen clutch. I believe her earrings might be new but I couldn’t find a good close up of them to be sure.

The Tonder Festival is a well-known folk music festival in Europe. The festival was founded in 1975 and Marie is Patron since 2009. She has attended every year since then, except for last year’s edition as she had to pull out because of Nikolai’s 18th birthday. Since 2013, Joachim, Henrik, and Athena join Marie at the event. Next year will be Marie’s 10th visit to the Festival as Patron and she said that there might a special event to commemorate this: “I do not know. Perhaps something special must happen. I enjoy being here”

The family had a busy program for this year’s visit. After the official welcome, they visited the new children area. Prince Henrik and Princess Athena were pleased with all the new activities and they asked to stay for longer than planned so the family had to miss their next event, a visit to the Wadden Sea.

Afterward, they attended Vishtèn’s show. Prince Henrik and Princess Athena were sat on the shoulders of Prince Joachim and mayor Henrik Frandsen, respectively, just like in 2016.

Before heading backstage to enjoy drinks and food as well as some private time, Princess Marie talked to the reporters about the development of the Festival since her first visit back in 2009: “A big development, I think. Now it’s bigger and it gets bigger and bigger. There are a lot of different activities for children too. They have actually gotten a whole new area here for children and families. And there are really many places to eat and have fun. And more and more musicians come from all over the world. From Ireland, USA, Canada and they are really skilled. It’s really a pleasure to be here.”

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie join the royal family to celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

Today, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie joined the royal family to celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.

Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte attended the commemoration at the Parliament at Christianborg Palace. Queen Margrethe made a speech celebrating Martin Luther’s 95 theses which started the Reformation. A children’s choir also performed.

Here is a video of the family’s arrival :

In the evening, the family gathered at DR Concert Hall to attend a concert celebrating the Anniversary.  The music was in tune with Luther’s universe with Bach, Wagner and Poulenc.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie posed on the red carpet.

For the day event, Princess Marie wore her Zara black belted jacket , first worn in 2014 , with her black Chanel skirt, first worn in 2010 , and a new top.

She carried the same Bottega Veneta clutch as earlier in the day with her Jimmy Choo black glitter Romy pumps she debuted earlier this year. The brooch was a gift from Queen Margrethe for Princess Athena’s Christening in 2012 and the earrings are old.
