Thank you, Fairy Tale

Let's have a look at what she's saying.
This translation is as close to what was said as I can possibly translate it. Phrasing and grammatical mistakes below are consistent with what our Marie said.

"I think it's very important to put focus on the handicapped people and how can you help them and improve their every day lives with new technology, innovation, offers. There are so many things here and it's exciting/interesting to have a place where people can share experiences and exhcange their ideas".

Q: What do you think of what you have seen? (Said very fast)!

M: "But/well as I say it was very exciting to see how newly technology can help handicapped people and there is a tele-machine (not sure what she is refering to), and there were games on the computer, there were so many different very, very exciting projects. I'm sure it will help many handicapped people, I hope so".

Q: As patron how important do you think it is to put focus on these things?

M: "As said before, it's very important to put focus on. And as patron of the National Association it's very important to put focus on (and here the video cracks up).

Her pronounciation is very good, she is very easy to understand. Her accent is fairly light. Especially towards the ending of the sentences, where we natives tend to snub off the endings anyway.
And as you can tell, her grammar was fine. She can hardly be blamed for the reporter not asking more varied questions!
So that's the level of her Danish.

Dear Iceflower,

Let me a few correction to the previous post:
auti.hu is not the official website of the Hungarian Autistic Society, it is a national information portal run by me and my wife - parents raising autistic child.
If possible, please indicate the source of the pictures, the pic1 was originally taken and distributed by MTI (the major Hungarian News Agency), the pic2 about Princess Marie was taken by auti.hu.

We herewith say thanks to the Princess for standing with the cause of people living with autism.

Thanks.

Thanks a lot for the additional information, bardossi!

You obviously make huge efforts for the site, it looks so professional and is filled with that much information, I guess it's understandable that one thinks it may be the main official one

Has the event attracted more public attention and press coverage in Hungaria than in the rest of Europe? Judging from the importance of the event and cause, I'm a bit disappointed that we haven't found more coverage yet.



By now two pics have been added to the royal website:

Thanks, Iceflower.

Judging from the pics it seems that our Marie has a good rapport with autists and is at ease among them, so they are at ease with her as well.

IIRC she has a close relative who is autist?

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #15, 2014.
Written by Henrik Salling.

As you now Marie is patron of the Autism Association and in that capacity she took part in a one kilometre run to celebrate the International Autism Day.
She ran with 34 autists and 20 paedagogues in the town of Taastrup.
To reassure the autists the route had been walked through to familiarize them not least with the road and railway crossings along the route.
Other autist joined in later, some of which had run almost a marathon, so presumably were running with the more severe cases or those who are simply not used to running.

When Marie arrived she was naturally met by the mandatory flower girl, in the shape of Danella. She had beens asked if she would present flowers to the Princess, but had misunderstood something, she thought the flowers were for her.
The situation was resolved by giving the girl a bouguet of flowers almost as pretty as the one our Marie got.
After having completed to run getting something to drink, Marie was shown some music instruments which have proven to be of big benefit for autists.
And she mingled with people, many of whom asked if the could pose for a selfie with her, which Marie obliged to do.

Afterwards Marie confessed: "I actually don't run so much. - It was nice to run with the children. I think they did well all of them".

And more on the guineapig.

Summary of short article in Billed Bladet #42, 2014.
Written by Ken Richter.

As you can tell from the galleries posted above, our Marie recently inaugurated a home for senior citizens with autism There are other homes for people with autism, but some of those who have diagnosed with autism have now become elderly and a home for them was not available.
In fact it's a part of a kind of commune with four small apartments for the senior autists.

Okay, Marie cut the obligatory red ribbon and gave a little speech: "Autism is a handicap you are born with, and which you must live with for the rest of the life. It's nice that there is now focus on elderly autists who need support all their lives".

Among them was 62, Torben Knudsen, who has lived in a home in the local area for 32 years, before moving in in this new apartment. He was chosen to show Marie his apartment which was duly admired by Marie, but it was mostly his guineapig Marie, who wanted to show Marie. And it was here it was obvious that Marie has experience in dealing with people with autism. She caressed the animal and asked: "May it come out or is that forbidden"?
Fortunately it wasn't and Torben could reassure Marie (the Princess): "Marie won't hurt anyone".

On her lapel Marie wore the logo of the Autism Association.
