The ceremony took place at the Copenhagen Town Hall, where Niklas Matthiassen and Birger Steen Hansen were presented with the 2012 edition of the prize. Mr Matthiassen was awarded the ‘Little Brother’ prize for his work with physically and mentally disabled children through a Ballerup football club; while Mr Hansen received the award for his commitment to children who use the Strandbo in Fjellerup.
Princess Mary listened to speeches from people who have been assisted by the Foundation, before posing with the prize winners for photos.
Fllowing the conclusion of the awards ceremony, the guests headed on to a quick reception where they were served the Town Hall’s famous pancakes.
The Danish Royal Court today also released a new series of portraits of Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik. The portraits were taken by Jacob Jørgensen, founder of JJ-Film, the father of Countess Alexandra’s husband Martin.Filed under Denmark
