The Finnish first lady is a very beautiful woman. She looks very elegant and regal. Very princess-like.

She has an impressive CV (especially compared with the CV of Princess Marie). And she writes poems!
Question to Finnish posters: Is she popular in Finland?
About Jenni Haukio and Sauli Niinistö:
President Niinistö's first wife died in a car crash in 1995, Niinistö has two adult sons. Niinistö survived tsunami in 2004, he was on a holiday with his sons and they all survived. I still remember how shocked Niinistö was when he was interviewed after he returned to Finland. Niinistö has written a book about the time after his wife died (("Five Years of Solitude") and he tells about his experiences in tsunami in another book ("Ordinary People at the Mercy of Great Events").
Jenni Haukio met Niinistö when she as the editor of Suomen Nainen, bulletin of the Women's League of the National Coalition Party, went to interview him in the end of 2005. They started dating at the beginning of 2007 and got married in 3rd January 2009. Their marriage came as a total surprise, they had managed to date totally in secret. The news broke at the day they were married. Since then the press has of course been very interested in mrs Haukio, she is a lovely woman and much younger than her husband.
The friends and colleagues of president Niinistö tell that Niinistö fell head over feels in love with Haukio. According to them meeting Haukio has changed Niinistö a lot, he has become more open, friendly and jovial. Niinistö and Haukio tell that they are connected by that they both love writing and reading books, they talk about that a lot at home. They both also love nature and like walks with their dog Lennu. Niinistö said that he feels happier, more secure and comfortable with Haukio. Haukio's friends have described her as an "old soul", who hasn't changed after she came to the public life.
The finnish gossip press was of course excited when Haukio became the First Lady in March 2012. But Jenni Haukio kept her mind, lived a quiet life, didn't search publicity but said that her main work was to support her husband. Haukio also said that she would keep her own job and started as the Programme Director of Turku International Book Fair in February 2012. The stylists tell in magazines how they would dress Haukio, but she keeps her own mind, she has told that she has no stylists but chooses her outfits herself and she wants to wear finnish outfits as much as possible. Haukio has also been praised of her good speeches in various events.
Before Niinistö became president, the couple wasn't keen to attend at celebrity parties but lived a quiet life.
Jenni Haukio is popular in Finland, and respected because of her career and how she approaches her role as the First Lady.

About mrs Haukio's dress: it is designed by Paola Suhonen, the dress is made of lace and satin. The print has all finnish regional flowers.

Mrs Jenni Haukio visited the Royal Copenhagen’s Flagship Store. During the visit, she was shown the porcelain factory’s special painting techniques.

I find it a little bit odd, that the First Lady had three events today, and she wasn't accompanied by anyone of the royal family in any of them.

A picture yesterday of Frederik with the president
http://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...finland-12.img

Frederik looks so young and handsome

Today Frederik with the president and Environment Minister.

Højgravid minister på bådtur med kronprinsen

I just noticed that when Marie arrived she had the medal of the queen's portrait (sorry if i am calling it incorrectly) she had it on the right hand side

but at dinner she had it on the left hand side.

I guess she forgot which side was correct
Im surprise Joachim didnt catch the mistake

Thanks for all the pictures

First, I will give our Prime Minister Helle Thorning some credit for yesterday evening, she looked lovely in her dress IMO. And it's always a joy to see Helle Thorning and Frederik together, they seem to know each other well and have fun together.
http://www.sn.dk/modules/xphoto/cach..._0_0_0_0_2.jpg

I like the pictures with Mrs Jenni Haukio and Mary together from yesterday. Jenni Haukio has made a good impression on me. Actually, I would describe her and Mary with some of the same characteristics, as some warm, calm and regal women.

And isn't it something relatively new that Mary and Frederik and Prince Joachim and Marie arrive by car and walk past to the photographers? If I remember correctly they used a private entrance in the past when there was gala dinners at Fredensborg Castle. I remember it as we only saw pictures from when they went into the hall?

The queen and prince Henrik with the presidential couple, who signed window panes before their departure from Fredensborg Palace today. More than 140 years the heads of state and guests of princely rank have written their names in a window pane which is put in one of the castle windows at the conclusion of the visit.

Dear Polyesco, you are mistaken.

It is, as you know, a wellknown fact that Joachim is the perfect gentleman and as such he would never correct his wife. That's....that's simply unthinkable. He would on the contrary rather have suggested to his precious Marie that the medal would complete her looks so much more when worn on the other shoulder.

I think you are right, Roskilde. It's unusual for J&M and M&F to walk past the photographers. Presumably they came directly from Amalienborg? Or J&M were visiting M&F in Kancellihuset?

I'd say so. I remember having read something about the house being readied for M&F a few weeks ago. It caused some attention because this is the first year since they moved in at Amalienborg that M&F is also using the "summer cottage".

Yeah, perhaps. However she wasn't without official/royal representation.
http://img.mtv3.fi/mn_kuvat/mtv3/vii...04/1630476.jpg The navy adjutant from the Danish navy is from the staff of adjutants of QMII. You can tell because his adjutants cord is over over his right shoulder. I.e. adjutant for the head of state or a royal. The Finnish adjutant is walking to the right of the First Lady in this picture. - Also with his adjutants cord over his right shoulder, because he is adjutant for the head of state.
Unless I'm mistaken the medal the Danish adjutant is wearing is Finnish?

Interresting But somehow, I don't think they have moved yet. I'm pretty sure that we then had heard about it. I think BB wrote they would move on April 16th. But of course, it dosen't necessarily mean that it is the truth

Good heavens Muhler! Surely Mme Helle is not a vampire! Perhaps the Finnish president is thinking of his own prime minister and wondering if he could persuade la belle Danoise to convert to Finnishness! In any case, I am wondering about the language used by both couples. Finnish looks nothing like Danish so that I am desperate to know whether they used English or is there a Scandinavian common language linking all Nordic countries!
