The new patronages are in the fields of health and marine conservation, and previously had Prince Henrik, the Prince Consort, as their patron. They are the Danish Epilepsy Association and the Kattegat Centre.

The Danish Epilepsy Association’s primary focus is to assist the approximately 55,000 Danes who suffer from epilepsy. In a press release, the organisation’s national chairman, Lone Nørager Kristensen, thanked Prince Henrik for his work as patron since 1972, and welcomed the Princess in her new role. “I warmly welcome Princess Marie, our new patron. After attending our anniversary, she left all present with an impression of a princess with both a personal commitment and a sincere interest in epilepsy case,” he said.

The Kattegat Centre is a tropical shark centre located next to the Grenaa Harbour. It aims to “disseminate knowledge about marine life, the human relationship to nature and the marine environment.”

Princess Marie has visited both of these charities in the past, having attended the epilepsy association’s fiftieth anniversary celebrations in 2012 and opening the Kattegat Centre’s new experience zone in May this year.
