Not necessarily, CP Frederik is the IOC representative from Denmark and he will be going to Vancouver. All of the royals have sports included in their patronages. CP Frederik - Sailing; CP Mary - Swimming and Golf; Prince Joachim - Motor Sport and now Princess Marie - Skiing.

This is a good fit for Marie. The Billed-Bladet article says that she has been skiing since she was a young child. I am curious about what the group does. How exactly do they promote skiing, and what sort of charity work does this group do?

This is the official site

according to the site its about supporting skiing in Denmark. So maybe Marie will start supporting teams and encouraging attending their winter events.

Well, now I'm feeling psychic In the thread on Possible Protectorates for Marie, I suggested the Danish skiing association (Danmarks Skiforbund).

I think it is an excellent fit for her; it is something she enjoys, and it is an organization that could do with some royal patronage as skiing is not big in people's minds in Denmark given the flat terrain and usual lack of snow in winter. (Although a lot of Danes go to the alps, or Sweden or Norway to ski).

So what are you saying, UserDane? The Danes need practice? Maybe Princess Marie will help the association promote ski lessons and training for ski rescue.

I'm glad to see Marie taking on another patronage. Does anyone know when she'll have her first event with this group?

He he I may be implying that. I think the Danes have improved (I don't ski myself) - but I have heard that one of the regular winter flights from Austria I think to Copenhagen is popularly known as 'the bone express' by the insurance companies - that's when they send a doctor and collect all the Danish broken arms and legs etc and bring them home

Yes, it's been so bad that the regular Danish health insurance (Sygesikringen) has stopped (or talked about stopping) covering transport home from skiing in the alps.


I wonder if this news means Marie and Joachim will be heading for Vancouver in February?

CP Frederik just got elected late last year as the IOC Representative from Denmark. Vancouver would be his first on-the-job event as an IOC Representative...so I don't think that Joachim & Marie will be in Vancouver.

The Danish delegations for the Winter Olympics are usually smaller than the delegations sent for the Summer Olympics...and even in the last Summer Olympics, only CP Frederik and CP Mary attended. I think that the Crown Prince Couple will go to Vancouver in February this year.

AFAIR Mary never attended the Winter Olympics. Frederik might attend alone.
