Thank you, Iceflower

La Marie said initially at the pet hospital: "I'm very proud to see (learn) that Denmark has the best animal..family-pet treatment. It's very important that they have the best treatment, just like humans".

Our Marie also wittnessed a wolf having a dental treatment. I'm not sure wolves would be considered pets though.

Later on she said: "I love animals. I've always loved animals. I have two...little animals myself, at home". (*)

Petite Marie spoke with accent, but was easy to understand. She is beyond the point which all go through, where you pronounce every word very carefully. She has reached the point where she is beginning to babble away like the natives, albeit somewhat hesitant and not fully confident, which is why, I guess, she speaks lower.
She is wisely using simple words. There were no grammatical mistakes and was it me or did she speak with a slight Southern Jutlandic accent? It certainly wasn't a Copenhagener accent to me.
That should make things easier for those among you who study Danish, as I've been told several times that Southern Jutlandic Dansih is easier to understand.

(*) Marie! You shouldn't talk about Joachim and bette Henrik like that! - Sorry, too tempting.

No surprise that you couldn't resist, Muhler And thanks for the video translation!

What other animal do they have beside Marie's little dog, right now I can't remember any other?!

Here's an additional article from Billed-Bladet with great pics:

That's right.

They have a dog named Winston and a white quadroped of some sort...

You mean Oscar He was Alexandra's dog, and IIRC some of his sperm was frozen before he died, and Winston is one of his offsprings

Thank you for the translation. Marie looks her best during spontaneous moments because it allows people to get a glimpse of her personality. For example: the balloon incident seems to have caught her off guard but it was a good moment for her. I hope that in the future she tries to present a more natural side as I feel that Marie is still trying to be what she thinks people want of her rather than who she really is.

Her speaking and her translating appear to be coming along as I see less "blank stares" from Marie every time I see the events she attends.

Another very quiet week in BB, apart from a story about QMII handing out a watch to a member of the now relieved guards battalion on duty, it's all about our Marie and her family.
There are no news at all about M&F.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #12, 2011.
Marie gik stuegang - Marie on ward round.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you know la Marie visited the new and very modern veterinary hospital for family pets in Copenhagen recently.
After having cut the mandatory ribbin it was time for a tour of the ward.
Among them a (prudently) sedated wolf with toothache.
A dachshund named Ziggy, who had been run over by a car. The very sympathetic Princess learned that the dog had been lucky, only a broken leg.
Then she encountered two New Foundlander puppies, named Millie and Elektra who completely melted belle Marie's heart: "Oh, how sweet they are".

Petite Marie also tried to practise her skills at performing surgery on a presumably critically ill teddy bear.
- The bear was stuffed with a ballon and the purpose of the exercise was to cut through the skin without penetrating the membrane around the internal organs. Bang!
Marie exclaimed: "Sorry, it's my first day as a vet".

ADDED: Keen eyed observers will notice the polar bear Marie wore in a long chain around her neck.

Marie seems to have a lovely sense of humor.

Thank you.

Billund Airport is located in south central Jutland and is the second major airport in DK after Copenhagen.
The airport is expanding and would very much like to be even more dominant in western Denmark.

Here is another pic from TV2: Prinsesse Marie indviede ny flyrute - TV SYD - TVSyd - Nyheder - Lokal - Billund
I suggest you keep an eye on this link: TV 2/Regionernes netTV
And look out for more news from TV SYD, that's the regional TV which cover Billund. They may have a clip in a few hours.

ADDED: And wouldn't you know. We have a nice gallery from the local section of Jydske Vestkysten: JV.dk - Nyheder - Billund - Prinsesse Marie klippede snoren i Billund Airport
ADDED AGAIN:
There are captions to the pics in the gallery above and they provide a picture of the event. And the journalist who covered the event is very positive towards our Marie!
Pic #1: Marie was recieved by the manager of the airport.
#2: The mandatory flowergirl in the shape of seven year old Caitlin.
#4: La Marie was pretty busy, not only should she cut a ribbon, she also had to ring a bell and cut a cake.
#5: The fair Marie had been carefully instructed not to ring the bell twice! Only once, or she'd had to buy drinks for all present.
#6: Princess Marie is praised by the reporter.
#8: Present were also the ambassador to France, whom our Marie had a chat with.
#10: The cake. - With the Eiffel tower, which Marie had to slice.
#11: There were 70 guests present.
- It's, to put it mildly, not the first time that Marie, and her Joachim too, get a very favourable press in this Southern Jutlandic newspaper. J&M are after all their royals.

Thanks for all the links and information. I was going to say congrats to Marie for getting good press but then you added the last bit about the bias press so I will save that until I see the video. Though I will add the she does a lot of stuff with France but that could just be her niche in the family. After all Mary does do stuff for Australia so it is fair.

This seemed more like a fun event than a very official one. Marie looked quite relaxed and everyone looked happy & not bored

Billund and Paris, not London


Thanks for the great JV.dk gallery, Muhler, Marie looked really lovely and as to her origin she's
been the perfect representative of the royal family for attending this opening.

Thanks, Muhler. Wonder why she was instructed not to ring the bell twice and what the significance of that is?
