Princess Marie's Partnership with the Syddansk University

Quote:
October 2
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie participant, University of Southern Denmark in Odense at commemorated 16.00.
Here is an article from BB about this event, the couple will also hold a dinner later that day. It says that Marie will be helping the university out, does that mean she will get a job or help them for a day?

Article in English & the original article

I'm not entirely sure, Dazzling, but my translated version says that Marie has an international profile, and that the university is hoping that the princess will be able to help them promote their programs and courses to an international audience. It says that the university hasn't yet figured out exactly what tasks Marie will take on in order to promote the school, but that they feel that she is the one who will be able to represent the school internationally.

Yes I understand that this work with the university is a kind of new patronage for princess Marie.

It's great to see that she's more and more involved in her royal activities and that she takes part in something she likes!

Im thinking maybe a new patronage as Ccile said. It would be great to see her take on education. Maybe during their visit they will mention something.

I agree that this would make an excellent patronage for Marie. Princess Benedikte has done some work with education, but I don't think that this university has had a royal patron before. This would be a great patronage to be involved in, especially since it is so close to Schackenborg. Many of the royal patronage events seem to take place near the capitol, so it is nice to see the royals involved in events in the other parts of Denmark. I am really curious to see what the university comes up with for Marie. It's great that she is starting to take on more and more royal duties.

Wow! A university. This sounds like there is more to it than just attending a ceremony. Would love to know more of what it entails.

It is very good for Marie and Joaquim to carry out royal duties near their residence, or relatively near. That way, F and Mary do theirs elsewhere, and there is much more exposure overall.

Before Mary, Alexandra had to do things in Copenhagen, but now that Mary is in that position, it is far better for Joachim and Marie to stay together at home, and be more visible in their own "neighborhoo", or their own part of Denmark.

Interesting how the royal patronages and duties are being assigned, it's happening very carefully.

Joachim is as attentive as ever, looks at Marie with such tenderness. It's nice to see. She is still a bit nervous around the press, I think, and keeps her eyes on the cameras...

Thank you for the link to the article, Princess_Robijn! It sounds like Marie will work as an ambassador for the university. Since she has been an international student, it sounds like the university plans to use her to reach out to prospective students from other countries, or to promote the school to students in other countries who are considering studying abroad. It will be interesting to see exactly what tasks they give to Marie.

A big assignment, but one that she can most likely handle well. Her own experience as an international student, and also a way to publicize the university to others. I wish her much success and believe she is capable of doing this well.

that is such a cool new patronage for marie. has it been confirmed as such? i'm glad she is increasing her list of duties.

it would be interesting to see if they will do some sort of "grant" to study in the university as it happened with mary and copenhagen uni, taking a couple of students per year from australia (france in marie's case). we shall see how it develops.

What a great site Myroyal's blog is - so many updated pictures. Marie still can't help looking straight at the cameras instead of just acting like they're not around. She's very conscious of their presence.

It looks as though she got on a podium to deliver a speech or something. Does anyone know what was said?

Joachim just seems to take all of this in his stride, he's so used to it. Hope she gets to that point as well.

I haven't seen any yet. I'm not sure of where MyRoyal got their photos. I was hoping that the photos would be online today, but I still can't find any. It looks like Marie addressed the audience at the event. I would love to know what she said, and whether it was in Danish or another language.

I think there are many of us who would like to know what Marie said and in what language. Perhaps a bit of English and Danish?

She has such a radiant smile on that podium.

Finally! An article and photo of Marie at the university:
Billed-Bladet - Marie slår et slag for Sønderjylland

The article says that she plans to devote her time and energy to patronages in the southern part of Denmark. It says that she fits in well, and that she wants to work on projects that strengthen that area of Denmark. She did give a speech in Danish, where she talked about how she studied abroad, and that it is important to share information and pass on experiences to others. Marie said that she hopes to be able to motivate other students to consider studying abroad.

Marie has a page about her workload on the official website now Kongehuset - Kongehuset - HKH Prinsesse Marie - reshverv
And according to this she is actually not patron of Syddansk Universitet. It's called "cooperation" (samarbejde) to promote the university. Don't know why, perhaps it's not customary for universities to have a royal patron.

Thank you for the link, Ricarda! I don't know if Marie's exact role with the university has been defined at this time. This may be the reason why they listed her affiliation as a partnership. I think that the Danish Royal Family's website did a very good job at describing how patronages work. I've never seen such a detailed description from a royal house, and I think that their description is very informative.
