Today, Princess Marie was at Nordea to meet with employees that have autism as Patron of the National Association for Autism. She was able to talk to them and learn more about their daily tasks and work. UPDATE 08/02: Nordea sent me a press release and a new photo.
“Her Royal Highness Princess Marie visited the Automation office space, where the princess had a chance to greet all our colleagues in the Automation team and have in-depth talks with our colleagues with autism.
One of our colleagues showed the princess our automation infrastructure where the programs modules to ensure that all our internal services can be automated. Another colleague showed how services are created to perform Nordea’s internal banking services and the self-service portal where customers order different items. A third colleague told about his participation in #Hack19. Hackathon is a two-day event where ideas are developed by employees across Nordea.
The princess was keen to learn more – she asked questions about favourite code language, where they had worked before and how it was to work for Nordea. Christoffer from Automation governance says: “It was nice that the patron of the National Association for Autism showed interest in how we feel about working at Nordea. Princess Marie seemed genuinely interested in what we do, and she was very nice to talk to.”
We hosted a small reception where the princess had the opportunity to have more informal chats with all the team members. “Personally, I hope the visit will create more focus on employing colleagues with autism, both at Nordea and elsewhere,” says Majbritt Gyldengren, who is the coordinator for Nordea’s employees with autism.
The hiring of our seven colleagues was conducted through Specialisterne, which is a socially innovative company working to enable one million jobs for people with autism and similar challenges through social entrepreneurship, corporate sector engagement and a global change in mindset.”
Marie wore her old Ralph Lauren jacket with her Sergio Rossi boots. Both her earrings and her brooch are repeats. I can’t tell anything more about her outfit.
Princess Marie had two unannounced events last week. On January 30th, following the news of her future move to Paris, she attended a charity fashion show hosted by Danish designer Jesper Hovring.
She wore a new pantsuit with her Christine Hvelplund earrings, Judith Leiber clutch, and her Michael Kors pumps.
On January 31st, Princess Marie met with director Marcus Mandal and creative director / CEO Klaus Schiang-Franck from Citizen Dane. The producing company made a short film about autism in 2017 and Princess Marie had attended the premiere back then.
She wore a new Theory blazer (with thanks to Elena) with her Tara Jarmon blouse and Zara pants.
Her ankle boots are ufo from October 2018 and her necklace is from Georg Jensen.
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.
You can watch a video of the event here.
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.
