Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attend the presentation of ‘Fyrstelige Maltider’ at Amalienborg

Today, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended the presentation of ‘Fyrstelige Maltider’ (‘Princely Meals) at Amalienborg Museum in Copenhagen. Both Prince Joachim and Princess Marie are involved in Denmark’s fight against food waste which made them excellent representatives for the book today.

Fyrstelige Maltider is the first book of its kind to gather knowledge about and describe the meals of the princely and nobility over the centuries.  The book tells, among other things, about the shelter and the various meals of the meal as well as the raw materials underlying the different dishes. Here is more information from the press release :
The book describes the rankings at the meal, the shelter and different meal serving forms and the many raw materials on which they were based refined dishes that were put on the richly covered tables. […] It is written by the country’s leading experts in food history and caters to everyone with one interest in both court culture and cuisine.”

During the presentation, Prince Joachim held a speech in which he revealed that his father, Prince Henrik, had a big influence on his food habits. He said that Prince Henrik would always tell him that  “There is no bad food, only bad manners. […] My father has always said everything can be eaten, and he is quite right”. Prince Joachim also said that Prince Henrik always wanted his sons to eat the food that was served on their plates.

Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and the guests also had the opportunity to taste some of the meals that were described in the book.

For this event, Princess Marie wore her Marni green printed blouse. She first wore it during an official visit to Iceland in 2016. She paired the blouse with black trousers and black suede ankle boots, although I can’t tell which ones exactly.

She carried her Carlend Copenhagen ‘Aicha’ clutch, first worn last December. Her earrings are old and UFO but I believe she wore a new ring.

Princess Marie opens an exhibition in Charlottenlund

Today, Princess Marie was in Charlottenlund to open an exhibition at the Ordrupgaard Museum which is a museum for French Impressionism and art from the Danish Golden Age.

The “Pissarro. A Meeting at St Thomas” exhibition opens to visitor tomorrow and will close on July 2, 2017.   This exhibition is held in honor of the 100th anniversary of the sale of the Danish West Indies to the US.

This exhibition shows the works of French-Danish painter Camille Pissarro and his friend, Danish painter Fritz Melbye who met on the island of St Thomas, in the Danish West Indies. Camille Pissarro was born on St Thomas’ island and he met with Fritz Melbye during his youth, both of them impacting the life and art of the other. Princess Marie officially opened the exhibition with a speech before meeting guests and visiting the exhibition. You can read her speech (in Danish) here.

For this event, Princess Marie wore her Marni top again. She first wore this top during an official visit to Iceland in 2015.

Since the top has a very busy print, as you can see in this close-up, she added a new black skirt that is still UFO.
