But the world would be a poorer place without the likes of von Trier. - Who when he had to cross the English Channel for the first time, insisted on sitting on deck during the entire crossing, wrapped in layers of clothing, because he was afraid the ferry might sink.
Wasn't he the one who sang Hitler's praises at Cannes or something? Sounds like the world would do just fine without his opinions, at least.

Well, he didn't actually praise Hitler. He was trying to tell some sort of convoluted joke and it didn't translate very well.

But Hitler-praise or not, we could do very fine indeed, without his opinions.

Thanks for the pics, Iceflower & Fairy Tale

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #4, 2013.
Marie overrakte pris - Marie presented award.
Written by Helle Skram de Fries.

Marie arrived slightly late to the Belgian embassy on a bitterly cold Monday. Perhaps that was why our Marie took her time chatting to the waiting flowergirl, in the shape of six year old Sophie who had looked forward to presenting the flowers, dressed in her finest.

Well inside Marie presented the Prix Litteraire 2012 to the author Sissel-Jo Gazan, gor her book Les Plumes du Dinosaure.
This is something she has taken over from her father-in-law Prince Henrik.
There were a number of speeched - in French. However the recipient held her speech in Danish. Sissel-Jo Gazan is Danish, the book has merely been translated to French and apparantly well enough to merit an award.
As the title suggest the book is indeed about feathered dinosaurs and it's not a novel, oh no, Sissel-Jo Gazan is a fully fledged biologist. (*)
After a brief receptin, Marie, wearing lilac glowes (**), rushed out to the waiting car and presumably home to birthday preparations for Athena who turns one today.

(*) Interesting. I was of the impression that the Prix Litteraire was always presented to authors of highly intellectual novels - and not the Bill & Ben cowboy novels ordinary people might read. Good, a book about dinosaurs may even be worth reading.

(**) The glowes may have warmed her hands, but the jacket was open in the neck and she wouldn't have survived standing at a busstop that day for more than five minutes max, without ending up in bed for the next eight days.

Thanks, Iceflower

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #4, 2015.
Written by Henrik Salling. (*)

When Marie went to the French embassy as patron of the Prix Litteraire des Ambassadeurs it was shortly after the terror attack in Paris. Most of her family live in Paris.
Asked by our reporter about what thoughts went through her head when she learned about the attack, Marie thought for a moment and said: "I must say that's a difficult question. But I thought: It's terrible. And I was very moved.
But unfortunately that's how it is today. But it's utterly terrible, so I won't say: I'm Charlie, but almost...".

The prize went to the Canadian author Kim Thuy who wrote a novel called Ru.
About that book Marie said: "Ru is a very inspirational story, that I clearly can recommend.
I try very much to read books in Danish because I so much would like to improve my Danish".

During the following reception Marie had a talk with the French ambassador, Francois Zimeray, who was moved by the recent events in France.

(*) Who speaks French and who has followed our Marie right from the beginning. I have long suspected, bordering on certainty, that he had and still has a crush on la belle Marie.
