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.
Today, Princess Marie woke up very early to join the Danish Food Bank in Ishoj.
Indeed, Princess Marie and the Danish Food Bank arrived at 7:15am at Gildbroskolen in Ishoj to give students breakfast in the school’s café. The Food Bank supplies food for 150 places in the Copenhagen area and Ishoj was their stop early this morning.
The Food Bank delivers food that is either too close to the expiry date or has damage to the packaging and therefore can not be sold in stores. Giving them to the Food Bank helps reduce food waste which is something Princess Marie is very passionate about. She visited the Food Bank earlier this year.
Princess Marie wore a very warm outfit for this event. She wore the Parajumpers coat which she debuted on a trip to Greenland last year. She paired it with a grey turtleneck sweater that she owns since 2015 at least.
She chose to wear checked trousers that she first wore only a year ago while visiting the H.C Andersen Children’s Hospital. We were already suspecting that they were Zara back then but couldn’t find the right model. Since we got slightly better photos today, I managed to find the pants. They are indeed from Zara and they have a ruffle detail on the pockets.
Marie also debuted new black ankle boots and they are also from Zara! They are available here for €39,95. I believe she also wore new diamond hoops earrings but I haven’t managed to find them yet.
This was Princess Marie’s last event of the year but I believe we will see the entire royal family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Today, Princess Marie is spending her last day in Greenland as Patron of Autism Denmark.
In early morning, Princess Marie attended the presentation of the Open College Network (OCN) diplomas to children. OCN is an international method used to recognize and validate informal knowledge and learning.
She then had lunch with Nuuk’s mayor and she attended a reception for Autism Denmark – Greenland’s circuit. She then opened the 2017 Autism Conference by delivering the opening speech and attended the following dinner. You can read her speech (in Danish) here. We have no photos of the dinner yet but you can see more photos of the conference here.
For the first events of the day, Marie wore her Parajumpers coat her Armani Collezioni jacket with her Céline bag.
Yesterday, Princess Marie continued her official visit to Greenland as Patron of Autism Denmark. Unfortunately , we have very few photos so the post will be updated if more photos appears.
At the end of the afternoon, Princess Marie visited the Greenland National Museum. Unfortunately , we don’t have any photos of this visit.This was a busy day for Princess Marie as she visited three residences for people with autism.
She first visited Uulineq, a residence for the children with autism. She then visited two others residences : Suluppaluk for young people and Qiimaneq for adults.
For this second day, Marie wore her Parajumpers coat again, with her Giorgio Armani jacket (you can see the neckline in the first photo)
She also wore her black Céline bag with winter boots.
Today, Princess Marie started an official visit to Nuuk, in Greenland. She will be back in Denmark on March 17th. The day started with a sad news when Kongehuset announced that Prince Richard, Princess Benedikte’s husband passed away. All our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Princess Marie , as Patron of Autism Denmark, will open the Autism Conference in Nuuk on Thursday.
Today, she landed at Nuuk Airport and was welcomed by members of the Greenland government and other officials . She then visited the airport , accompanied by a young employee , who has autism. Princess Marie had the opportunity to learn his duties and how he deals with autism at work. You can see more photos of Princess Marie’s first day here.
