Princess Marie of Denmark has joined the ranks of her fellow family members, by undertaking training with the Civil Defence.
According to a press statement on the Beredskabsstyrelsen website, the Princess received her diploma for basic training with the agency, known in English as the Civil Defence, on June 23rd after completing four weeks training.
Princess Marie is now assigned to the Volunteer Deployment Force in Herning, north of her home in Møgeltønder; and is skilled in basic fire fighting, first aid, and rescue communications, organisation and operation.
She joins the rest of the senior Danish Royal Family members, who all have some form of military or defence training. Queen Margrethe II undertook voluntary service with the Danish Women’s Flying Corps for several years in her youth; the Prince Consort undertook infantry military service in Algeria in the early 1960s; Crown Prince Frederik has undertaken training in all branches of Denmark’s military forces, most notably the Royal Danish Navy Frogman Corps; Prince Joachim trained with the Queen’s Own Regiment and the Prince’s Own Regiment; and Crown Princess Mary is the most recent member to undertake training, completing a course with the Home Guard in 2009.Filed under Danish Royals
