The hospital of Middelfart has a special center for patients with back problems,
that center has been renovated and has now been officially inaugurated after
that time of renovation.

Here are two additions:

Thank you, Iceflower
I guess we'll see more on TV at some point, judging from the cameras.

Interpreting the pictures it's (again) my impression that our Marie is most at ease when she is interacting with people or dogs and that she genuinely like that.
One of the things I like most about la Marie is that she has an "open face", for better or for worse what we see is how she feels at any moment.
I have the impression that attending loong meetings or listening to long speeches reeeally isn't her cup of tea, - and that shows.

As a secondary Princess she can afford an "honest face" and I hope she never changes, it's actually refreshing to see.

It's not the first time we've had a French Marie in the DRF. The last one, would get up and leave a dinner table, if she heard the bell of fire engines in the street and rush towards the fire, encouraging the firefighters, who in return presented her with a feminized firefighters uniform, complete with a brass helmet.
She also sported tattoos, so our present Marie has a long way to go, before she can topple her predecessor.

My mother can tell that sometimes the first Princess Marie was the first to arrive at fires... So the story went that it was she who had started the fire

IDK if it´s true about the firestarting, but it´s true about her being the first on the spot

We have a saying, "she is wearing her heart on her sleeve," but it means the same! I agree with you. She looks so engaged and happy here.

That I think is a myth. She would have been found out quickly.

I understand she lived in the centre of Copenhagen. Marie would have been able to reach a very large part of Copenhagen within twenty minuttes, even by foot.
In the early 1900's the city was even more densely populated than now, the buildings were closer together, with the infamous second and third back yards. Fires that weren't stopped immediatly would have spread fast and have become very visible very soon after it had started.
In stark contrast to today with firewalls, sprinklers, alarms and containment doors - where often all you see is smoke.

My family told about a true horrorstory from their childhood in the 1920's, where two young girls lived in a room just beneath the roof of a building on fire. They couldn't get out and they cried out for help through the window of what must have been the fifth floor.
The new buildings were tall in the rapidly expanding cities and the firebrigades couldn't keep up. There were no fireengines with ladders going that far up.
The girls didn't dare crawl out the window onto the roof and jump. I doubt would have helped anyway. Eventually.... they stopped screaming.
That was a pretty traumatic event for a young child, who would become my grandmother.
The then very modern house of flats (there were toilets inside the flats mind you!) still stands, not far from Marseliborg in fact.

Who was the first Marie from France in the DRF? I searched for her but didn't find a princess of that name in Denmark before "our" Marie?

Sorry my facts weren´t right I just checked with my mother and she could tell me that it was Prince Knud, who the citizens of Copenhagen thought would have started a fire.
In Gladsaxe there was a big timberstore and he was the very very very first person at the spot... But then again people talk

Jon Bloch Skiper wrote an account of the first Marie in a Q&A in BB #29, 2009.
She was Marie of Orleans, great grandchild of King Ludvig-Phillippe.
She became a Danish princess in 1885, when she married Prince Valdemar, the youngest son of King Christian IX.
She died aged 44 in 1909.
She was a very unusual woman for her time! She had a tattoo on her upperarm. (Considering the fashion back then, that would not have remained hidden, even if she cared).
There is a picture of her, proudly posing in a somewhat unofficial firemans uniform, on which she wrote her thanks for recieving the honor of becoming an unofficial fireman.

She also had a motto, which was printed on the sheets of paper on which she wrote her official letters: "Qui gu'en grogne je m'en moque". - I'll leave it to French speaking members of this forum to translate...

But the present Marie appeared on the 19.00 news on TV2 tonight. That clip should soon be available.
The vet hospital is state of the art. It took three years to build and 130 (I believe) veterinarians should recieve their education there at any given time.
Our Marie also attempted surgery on a teddy bear, stuffed with a balloon. That requires a steady had with the scalpel! Well, the surgery may have been successful, but alas the patient did't make it.... Bang.

ADDED: I see that FasterB has already provided an excellent link.
It was a very nice touch of her to attend the funeral of an eccentric - as the only one.

Here it is in danish: Hendes ordsprog var "Qui s'en grogne, je m'en moque", dvs. "Den, der gør vrøvl over det, spotter jeg "

The first French Princess Marie in Denmark was Princess Marie of Orléans (1865-1909) from the former French royal family.
She married Prince Valdemar of Denmark, the youngest son of King Christian IX in 1885. They had five children.

A gallery from BT: Prinsesse Marie var dus med dyrene | www.bt.dk

Showing among other things our Marie preparing to operate on the (now late) teddy bear.
And she appears to be smitten by some of the dogs. The last two pics show her with a dog she apparantly fell for completely.

This Marie seems like a wonderful role model. The English translation would be 'fogeddaboudid' or, more formally. 'he who complains I invite to take a hike!'
