Today, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended Flag Day ceremonies. Flag Day is each September 5th and honors those who have served for Denmark and every year since 2011, one couple attends the ceremonies in Copenhagen. Last year, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended.

This year, both couples attended. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the ceremonies in Copenhagen. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended the ceremonies in Skive for the first time. They first attended a service at Skive Church.

 


Then, they laid a wreath at a memorial at Skive’s Kaserne.

The couple had lunch at the Kaserne where they learned about its history. It was a special commemoration for Skive’s Kaserne as fifteen years ago, they lost three soldiers during a mission in Kabul.

 They finished the day by watching the military parade in front of Skive’s Kaserne.

For this event, Princess Marie choose an appropriate outfit , wearing her Zara ruffled coat first worn earlier this year and her Warehouse dress first worn at Prince Nikolai’s confirmation in 2013.

Princess Marie unveils her new portrait by Mikael Melbye

On Wednesday, Princess Marie unveiled her new portrait made by Mikael Melbye at the artist’s home. Prince Joachim was with her. The couple just got back from a couple of days of holiday in St Tropez, France. They will soon go to Cayx, in France, with their kids.

 The new portrait of Marie was made in 2016 by Mikael Melbye and it is a private portrait. It will be hung in Joachim & Marie’s home in Klampenborg. It isn’t the first time Mikael Melbye made a portrait for the royal family. He made one of Queen Margrethe in 2011 and he made individual portraits of Prince Henrik, Prince Joachim and Prince Christian in 2014.

 

Marie and Joachim both really like the portrait as reported by SN.dk. Marie said : “I think it really shows the person I am. It’s important to me to be represented the way people know me “. Joachim agreed : “It’s so beautifully done! It couldn’t me more right! It’s amazing!”. You can see more photos here.

In this portrait, Marie is wearing an UFO top first worn in 2016 with her diamond earrings. She is also wearing her engagement ring as well as her custom made Christine Hvelplund ‘H’ and ‘A’ necklace. I really love this portrait as it looks just like Marie and the details are amazing!

 

 For the unveiling of the portrait, Princess Marie wore a simple , recycled outfit ! She wore her black Zara jacket with an Emporio Armani top both first worn in 2012.

What do you think of the portrait ?
This was the last official event of Prince Joachim and Princess Marie before their summer break. We might see them at Grasten Castle with the rest of the royal family at the end of July for the annual photoshoot but they haven’t taken part in it since 2014 so we don’t know if they will this year.

Denmark’s Training Ship is welcomed back to Copenhagen by members of the Royal Family

Today, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie bought their children Prince Henrik and Princess Athena to a very special event! Denmark’s Training Ship is back in Copenhagen and the members of the Danish royal family were there to welcome them as well as their families. Prince Joachim is the Patron of the ship who welcomes 80 students.

The ship was traveling since last year and was in the Virgin Islands or the Bermuda for examples. The members of the Danish royal family meet the ship’s crew last summer in Rio de Janeiro during the Olympic Games.

The family took a boat to join the ship in Vedbaek so they could be on the ship for the last part of the trip , from Vedbaek to Copenhagen’s port. It looks like it was a really fun event for Henrik and Athena.
