This couldn't have been an easy event to participate in. It is very sad that so many babies die every year.

I loved this photo:

The little girl is very sweet.

Countess Alexandra as Patron of the Danish Parkinson Disease Association

http://www.theroyalforums.com/5099-c...arkinsons-day/
Countess Alexandra celebrates International Parkinson's Day

Also, next Friday, the Countess is going to be at the finals of the Danmarksmester in Entrepreneurship & Innovation, which, from what I understand, is a competition where students from secondary schools set up 'companies' and design a product which are then judged by seven experts, the final judging being the one which Alexandra will attend.

Anne Mette Rasmussen is the wife of the former Prime Minister of Denmark. He resigned two week ago to become secretary-general of The NATO.

I don't know if she is involved with the Parkinson's Foundation - I guess she must be..........

Countess Alexandra as Patron of the Danish Association of the Blind

Today, Countess Alexandra distributed 1.4 million kroner from the Eye Fund to fund the research of 11 scientists who are trying to find a way to cure and treat those who suffer from eye diseases and blindness.

The Countess is the patron for the Dansk Blindesamfund, and said that she would be happy to give up this patronage if there was no longer use for it (meaning-she would like the researchers to find a cure).

Although this event happened a few days ago now, I might as well put the link to the blog post for more information for people just coming across this thread, so here it is: http://www.theroyalforums.com/6896-c...to-scientists/

Thank you for sending the photographs.

I do think that Countess Alexandra would look better with a different haircut. However, I admire her for her willingness make a change.

Back to the JJ Film site question. It seems odd that Countess Alexandra's photograph from the JJ Film documentary of her would be included. Martin was so young when he met her. It will be interesting to see what his interests are and how he develops as a photographer.

Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandras Fund

Countess Alexandra and Prince Joachim would usually give out grants from their 'Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandras Fund' at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen around this month wouldn't they?
The last photos I found were on
PPE Agency from December 19, 2007. Press release from the Kongehuset - Aktuelt - Arkiv for December 19, 2007.

Then last year, there was only a press release on December 12, 2008 with no photos
Kongehuset - Aktuelt - Arkiv

This year (2009) - No photos or press release.

I wonder whether this fund will eventually be dissolved given that both Prince Joachim and Countess Alexandra have remarried?

Countess Alexandra, in her role as Patron of the Children's Cancer
Fund, has visited the department for children suffering from cancer
at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen. Prince Nikolai attended as well!
They spent two hours at the hospital, Countess Alexandra read out
of a funny book she had chosen and held talks with the little patients.


Here's an article with several pics:

**Alexandra læste højt for kræftsyge børn **
