She is in her 90's IIRC.

It must be close indeed since she's cancelling.

ADDED: BB has little more: http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige...-alvorligt-syg
Baroness Odile de Sairigné is 97. She is Marie's paternal grandmother and her health has been getting worse in the past few years.

Prinsesse Marie: Farmor er stadig syg | BILLED-BLADET
BB writes that Marie is back i DK after having visited her grandmother, who is still in a poor condition though.

So perhaps we should have a look at the relationship between Marie and her beloved grandmother.
Summary of article in Billed Bladet #49, 2015.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Baroness Odile de Sairigne is 97.
Marie told about their relationship in an interview five years ago.
When asked what role-models she grew up with, Marie responds: "The first to come to my mind is my fathers mother. She is, apart from being my grandmother, my best friend.
She's 92, but still in good shape. She's a very, very strong woman.
Even though she's been through a lot, she has all the time held her head high. That's why she is still well and healthy, I believe.
My grandmother has always been the strongest in the family and I admire her wildly". (*)

And Baroness de Sairigne was indeed the one Joachim went to officially ask for Marie's hand in marriage. - Partly I'm sure because she means so much to Marie, but also because Joachim know the position the matron has in a French family.

When bette Henrik was born, Baroness de Sairigne was among the very first to be told and she was also high on the list of people who was shown the newborn when Marie and Joachim went to France prior to the baptism. Also because Baroness de Sairigne couldn't attend the baptism.

(*) That's an expression I'm certain she picked up from Nikolai and Felix. Five years ago Marie's mastery of Danish would have been less than it is now, so it's no wonder she picked up such a (youthful) day to day expression.

Prinsesse Marie og prins Joachim holder nytår med alle fire børn | BILLED-BLADET

Joachim and our Marie went to a Christmas event close to their home and here Joachim told the BB reporter that Nikolai and Felix will not be celebrating Christmas with them this year instead they will celebrate Christmas in another way.

However, instead Nikolai and Felix will celebrate New Years Eve with them.

Have some family time together, just not on Christmas Eve.

The 25th and 26th are typically family days, where you have a lunch with friends or family - or bonus-children as in this case.
For adults that's something we look just as much forward to as Christmas Eve itself.

Not to mention the movie premieres on the 26th.
So there are plenty of opportunities for quality time together between Christmas and New Year.

Like going to France?

Perhaps next year. M&F are away this Christmas, but I can well imagine J&M wanting to celebrate Christmas with our Marie's family once in a while.

The magazine edition of BB has more on Nikolai and Felix.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #50, 2015.
Written by Dorthe Quist.

The area J&M have moved to, Klampenborg, is an area where money is not an issue and where you wouldn't allow your au-pair to drive anything less than a Mercedes. - I mean, what would the neighbors think?!?
So such an area is of course well suited to a sales-reception of luxury goods.
That took place at Skovshoved Hotel located just a few hundred meters from J&M's home.

Arriving around 18.00 our Marie darted inside to have a closer look at among other things, fashion by Rikke Gudnitz, jewellery by Christine Hvelplund and bags from Cosi. - Joachim however kept back and enjoyed a glass of wine with a few other men, whose wives were also otherwise engaged...
And accompanied by Rikke Gudnitz Marie did indeed spend an hour looking around.

The whole thing last only a couple of hours and it's only for invited guests. - No paupers here please! (Paupers being defined as those who only have one Porsche)

Afterwards Joachim said: "There certainly was lots of inspiration" (for Christmas presents). Joachim was seen looking at a Cartier watch. - But nothing was bought or ordered though.
Joachim also gave a few more details on Nikolai and Felix. He explained that they have some kind of Christmas get-together with his oldest sons before and after Christmas.

Marie's grandmother is still very poor, and Marie said: "It was really good that I was able to be with her".

Iben Detlefs who was Joachims great love when he was in his youth, has died from cancer aged 48.
Historien om Iben og prins Joachim: Hun dømte ham som 'arrogant' - men så forelskede hun sig - Danmark | www.bt.dk

Iben Detlefs came from a small town in Jutland, from parents who had divorced. They met when she was 22 and he was 19 and Joachim fell in love on the spot.
Initially she didn't like him much, actually she didn't like him at all, she thought he was arrogant. But after having wooed her for three months she gave in and fell in love with Joachim well.
They were very close for the next five years and the press was certain she was the one to marry Joachim.
She was discreet, spoke French, knew how to use utensils and endeared herself to the Regent Couple.
But she also had her problems. Her mother got and Iben basically had to take over and be responsible for her younger brother.
Then Joachim went to Hong Kong to work in shipping (IIRC) for Mærsk and one day she got a call, it was over...

Two years later Joachim married Alexandra.
Iben also married a few years later.

She remained on friendly footing with the DRF and was invited to QMII 50th birthday and the Regent Couple's silver anniversary.

She remained friends with Joachim and as such her death must have affected him.

It is always sad to lose a friend especially this time of year. The prince family is dealing with an ill grandmother of Princess Marie also. I hope they find time to relax a little.

On the occasion of our Marie turning 40 in a few days she is giving a number of interviews it seems.

Also in the online version of the serious paper Jyllands Posten today.
She's pretty frank I'd say.
I haven't got time to write a summary let alone a translation, but she clearly leaves the impression of a young woman who had no expectations of ever becoming famous. A woman who lived an ordinary, albeit fairly privileged life without too many financial concerns.
So it was a huge culture shock when she suddenly caught the attention of the press when she started dating Joachim in earnest. And that attention almost resulted in her not marrying Joachim.
But she's clearly smitten with the man and in the end decided to join the DRF after doing some research it seems into what the DRF was and what it means to the Danes.

She seems to have found a comfortable balance now between being royal with all that entails in the form of duties and perks and being Marie, the wife and mother of two children, whom she obviously adore.

BB will also publish an exclusive interview in the next issue and I expect that to be better illustrated and perhaps more personal. - Marie is wonderfully talkative.
