Summary of articles in Billed Bladet #13, 2011.
Prinsesse af Grønland - Princess of Greenland.
Written by our man in Greenland, Henrik Salling.

This covers the second part of the visit to Greenland, with a lot of emphasis on the national costume presented to la Marie.
The costume cosist of 25 different parts and from the details you can tell from where the woman wearing it originate.
I can see from the pics that the patterns on the upper part of the cotumes worn by QMII, Mary and Marie are different
The almost Scottish quilt like pattern around the waist of the three ladies are also different.
However Mary and petite Marie's kamikker (boots) are indentical.

The costume took several months to make and Princess Marie has not had any influence in the design: "No, I haven't had any influence myself, but I'm very pleased wth the result. I think it's incredibly beautiful. And it's incredibly comfortable to wear and very warm".

Bella Marie and her three boys all wore the Greenlandic national costumes at Nuuk University. Nuuk is the capital town of Greenland.
After having recieved flowers from the obligatory flowergirl, personified by seven year old Naasu, it was down to business.
There they handed out grants from the foundation of Nikolai and Felix. 50.000 DKK went to the establishment of an IT-academy for children. The plan is that eighteen Greenlandic children will take part in the project over a period of six weekends.
How about the IT skills of Nikolai and Felix?
Joachim: "I think they know considerably more than they let us adults know".

Q: Have you missed your little son, while you've been away?
Marie: "Yes, of course. But he is at home with his lovely nanny and is having a cosy time in the nursery. And he is at his very best, when he is in his usual environment".

But it wasn't all about cute boys, family pics and Marie dazzling the surroundings in her new costume. Joachim also went solo.
Joachim is chairman of the Royal Greenlandic Foundation and he inspected a house for children and youths in Nuuk, which has recieved support from the foundation. A house called Dandelion.
And here 100 children had been drummed up to recieve him.
It's actually pretty serious! The house is basically a refuge for children whose parents have social issues and this is indeed a very serious problem in Greenland.
It's also hoped that the house will help the children to brake the pattern of social issues and basically helping them not to end up like their parents.
Joachim: "In the ideal world there would not be any need for a place like yours. So that's why I'd like to say thank you for the work your are doing. It's very much needed".
