Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, Current Events 3: May - September 2008
 
It is The Royal Guardsmen's 350th Anniversary and The Danish Royal Family will be involved in the celebrations on the 30th June. There is a Gala Dinner that evening so I guess that this could be Marie's first offical engagement.

marmi 05-30-2008 07:00 PM

When Mary & Frederik were newly married Mary did the occassional solo event, but certainly, for the most part (very logically, to my way of thinking) the vast majority of her early engagements were carried out with her husband. (I actually miss this but thats not relevant here...) I think we can safely assume that it will be similar for Marie.

antonieta 06-10-2008 10:21 AM

According to JydkeVestKysten the newlyweds will be at home for castle concert.
They will be at Schackenborg

antonieta 06-10-2008 10:21 AM

to parcipate in this year's castle concert in Southern Denmark, GuldhornKoncert on Sunday in the castle grounds in Mogeltonder.

GlitteringTiaras 06-14-2008 01:21 AM

Now that Marie is back from her honeymoon with Prince Joachim it's time to get down to business.

First up: A concert with the Danish Drengekor at the Odd Fellow Palace in Copenhagen. Then, along with Prince Joachim, she will attend a reception for French Ambassador. Finally, she will attend the Rosenborg Tattoo 350th Anniversary extravaganza on June 26 with Prince Joachim. Finally, after a long hard week they can retreat and relax at their castle.

Only time will tell when Marie will tackle royal tasks on her own. One reason: She has not yet been selected as a patron for any organization.

Just a friendly reminder that this topic is reserved for the discussion regarding Prince Joachim and Marie's Current Official Events together. General news and information that may not "fit" anywhere else may be discussed in this topic, General News about Joachim, Marie, and Family.

Thank you:flowers:

Thanks for the picture & video. Marie acted very well for her firt outing, she looked very secure, also looked very happy.

GlitteringTiaras 06-16-2008 08:23 PM

Billed Bladet has a bit more information about the concert. According BB, guests eagerly awaited the arrival of the couple and once things got down the business the audience were treated to a great musical and entertaining experience in the company of actors Preben Kristensen and Tomas Ambt Kofod and opera singer Susanne Elmark and Gert Henning-Jensen.

Marie and Prince Joachim appeared to be entertained, as well as the rest of the audience, who were chosen to spend Sunday afternoon at Schackenborg.

Sønderjyllands Symphony Orchestra provided the music for concert at Schackenborg under the musical guidance of conductor Peter Ettrup Larsen.

By the way there is a photo attached to the article. Click the link and there you go.

I'm not trying to start an argument here, but it is not difficult to look secure when the arrangement is in the courtyard of your home and you basically know your surroundings. The real test is when she has her first official duty (ie. on the calendar) in Copenhagen later this week.

The only time she seemed a bit confused to me, was when she had to stop to receive the bouquet. But she seemed very friendly and nice when she got it.:flowers:

biboquinhas 06-17-2008 04:58 AM

Do we have some pictures of this first event? I can't found them? Is Marie going to be alone on the next event?

GlitteringTiaras 06-17-2008 05:02 AM

Here's a nice giant photo of the couple at the concert which took place in their backyard, essentially.

Yes you do have a point:smile:
Btw, there is no official event for her this/next week. Her event are with Joachim.

princess leonor 06-17-2008 05:57 AM

Lovely picture! They look very nice and happy together! Can't wait to see her first official event with Joachim!

biboquinhas 06-17-2008 06:45 AM

Well I think it is difficult enough when we have a lot os photograhers around and so many people looking even if it is in a familiar place, I think it is always difficult before she gets used to that! She looks very good!!

Aotearoagal 06-17-2008 06:46 AM

Marie handles herself with great aplomb - she is natural, unselfconscious, no nervous mannerisms (or she keeps her nerves under control!) I must say I'm surprised - I didn't think she would measure up to Alex, but I think she may! She's well-groomed and has the kind of naturally lovely hair that goes up well without too much effort. She does have the advantage of an upper-crust background, but still, 9 out of 10 from me for Marie's first official engagement.

auntie 06-17-2008 09:33 AM

It seems to me that Joachim married both times woman from uppercrust backgrounds. Alex, with her diplomatic and proffesional history, and Marie with her generally upper class European upbringing, private schools and so forth. It seems to me, that that is what he prefers

Couple of pictures from Hola magazine. She looked ok, but could've looked better had she brushed her hair.

seto 06-17-2008 05:01 PM

She looks very nice and happy. Why exactly does she have to measure up to Alex? They are two different women who happened to marry the same man.

Odette 06-17-2008 05:40 PM

He looks so much in love..........and they both looked happy!

magnik 06-17-2008 05:55 PM

No one from the outside world has joined a royal family and was at ease from the get go. She may slip up or behave strangely or wear the wrong dress/shoes/hat or whatever.
I remember seeing Queen Silvia on TV a few weeks after her wedding. She was not very comfortable and it showed. Look at her now. As if she was born to the job. Give Marie time she has a lot on her plate. She may surprise us all.

Are you're saying that they attended official events before their weddings? There's a huge difference, they were marrying crown princes and were following a different protocol than Marie who wasn't marrying a crown prince. They were no doubt being prepared for their crown princess role.

norwegianne 06-19-2008 10:30 AM

Marie has been taken off the programme for the tattoo on the 26th, but it has been replaced with a trip to a Danish-German conference on the 27th in Berlin for both Joachim and Marie.

It's not known why Marie didn't attend. (An article from BT speculates in pregnancy or a quick spring cold... :whistling:)

The article mentions that Joachim said that everything was ok, but it was irritating that Marie was prevented from participating.

The remark was also short from the court and said that Princess Marie was prevented from attending. :ermm:

GlitteringTiaras 06-23-2008 03:58 PM

Billed Bladet also reports on the no-show Marie.


Princess Marie did not attend her first official task. It should have been 32-year-old first official task; however, it was instead a disappointment for the participants and organisers of the Danish Drengekors concert, as Prince Joachim arrived without Marie.

But where is the princess Marie?
Prince Joachim briefly stated that "...everything is fine. It is of course unfortunate that Marie is not present."

Prince Joachim did not want to deepen nor discuss his wife's absence any further, and the court refused to comment on the controversial episode.

Strange

amina1 06-23-2008 04:20 PM

It can be any reason....sick, nervous, undergoing a 'royal' makeover:biggrin:

Odette 06-23-2008 04:38 PM

One would think all the wrinkles were ironed out way before the wedding.
I want to believe she had a sudden illness that detained her.( Morning-afternoon sickness??) Hopefully there is no trouble in paradise. It would be so sad.

sneeuwklokje 06-24-2008 07:18 AM

Maybe a wardrobe crisis??:biggrin::biggrin:

Duke of Marmalade 06-24-2008 10:54 AM

What is the problem with confirming why she's not around? It's childish to do a no-comment regarding Marie's absence, it only will enforce speculations. I don't know what it is but I have a strange feeling regarding these two, something just doesn't seem right with this combination :hmm:

GlitteringTiaras 06-24-2008 11:45 AM

We may never know to be honest. Someone should have said something or make up some excuse/fib; for example, she had a serious fever, Hayfever, or she ate something the night before thus she wasn't feeling too hot the next day.

To say nothing leaves the door wide open... which is not a good PR move (whomever is handling the couple certainly failed PR 101 whilst at University.:rolleyes:)

The nice thing is that we can just lean back and wait and see, while the Royals will have to come up with an explanation should it happen again...:biggrin:. on a more serious not, I personally hope that all is well for them. It must have been something serious, though, she wouldn't have wanted such reports.

BurberryBrit 06-24-2008 05:04 PM

Looks very bad.

marmi 06-24-2008 05:12 PM

I agree, it doesn't look good not showing up for an event like this, but it looks worse still without a reason...

Al_bina 06-24-2008 06:53 PM

I for one think that there has to be something serious, which prevented Princess Marie from attending the event in question.

GlitteringTiaras 06-25-2008 05:37 PM

Marie, along with Prince Joachim, made her first (well actually it's supposed to be the second) official engagement at the French Embassy. Highlights from the BT article state, that she is still having a hard time learning Danish. Prince Joachim interrupted the questioning by noting, "It goes, it goes" (or something like that); Marie has not yet said anything really except in English, the "see you on Saturday", at Møgeltønder City Hall shortly before the wedding. However, today's reception at the French embassy Marie had no fear when it comes to languages: Everyone spoke French around her including the Ambassador and other guests.

On Thursday, Prince Joachim will attend the salute and march at Rosenborg Slotsplads on the occasion of the Royal Livgardes 350 year anniversary. Marie, however, will "have a day off" said Prince Joachim. Nonetheless, on Friday she will be in Berlin for the opening of a Danish-German neighbourhood project. The reporter asked if Marie has taken on or has been asked to be a representative of any patronages? According to Prince Joachim's Secretary, Colonel Kurt Bache, "No" she still hasn't.

Click the link for several photos (it looks like she's wearing one of Mary's dresses. It looks very similar. Yes, she looks nice too.)

norwegianne 06-25-2008 06:24 PM

The article said that she answered the question of how it felt to be a Dane after the wedding and the honeymoon in "a very good Danish". (With the added embellishments from the journalist, of course :lol:)

Yes, because no one ever mispronounces anything. Right.

Thankfully she is trying, and I'm sure having Henrik as a father-in-law will be helpful ;)

Al_bina 06-25-2008 07:10 PM

Well... it is nice to see Princess Marie performing her official duty alongside Prince Joachim. Undoubtedly, the French Embassy is the most comfortable place for her in terms of the language. I am not sure about Princess Marie's style though. I always thought that French ladies have got an innate sense of style and ability to choose clothes that enhance the best in them. I can not say this about the new Princess of Denmark. The foregoing is my personal subjective opinion.

Thank you for the translation and the links, GT. :flowers:
But do the comparisons to Mary have to start already? I agree that the dress looks like one Mary would wear as well. But I doubt marie would raid Mary's wardrobe for her first official outfit in the capital of Denmark and certainly not when visting the French Embassy. I'd guess she brought the dress with her from Paris or bought is someplace else, otherwise it'd be tacky indeed.

But I start to think that it will be difficult for Marie to find her own place when it comes to fashion. She does resemble her sister-in-law. They have both the same expectations to fulfill when it comes to fashion. Mary already has carved her place as supporter of Danish fashion, so can Marie do the same at the same time? And can she dare not to support Danish fashion?

Maybe these two should really openly exchange their wardrobes as they won't probably be able to escape the comparisons anyway, so being open about it would save them at least money and make them appear "frugal" and "like real sisters". :biggrin:

GlitteringTiaras 06-26-2008 04:37 AM

Sorry, but her outfit reminded me of a dress worn by the Crown Princess. It's not a comparison (and come on JoP you know the context of a comparison post and commentary); if it were I would have given an indepth analysis of the two. But, I didn't. Nope not at all. ;)


Quote:

Oh come on, JoP. Marie has her own style which was clear from the moment she was "discovered." She's very simple... simple chic. Clean lines, easy cuts, classic pieces.

Anyway, Marie's next big gig is coming up with Prince Joachim... and yes, I am looking forward to it.

sneeuwklokje 06-26-2008 05:45 AM

As Mary and Marie are both very slimsized, rather petite brunettes, it makes sense to me that they will have somewhat of the same style of clothing. Imo Marie is more the "classic" Chanel type versus Mary that looks better in the more girly stuff. Marie's dress for this engagement is certainly a huge improvement to the fashion no-no's she usually dresses in. If she really puts an effort in on learning Danish as quick as possible, she could even end up being a "proper" princess. (Stop speaking French to her Joachim!!:rofl::rofl:)

suPeRgiRL! 06-26-2008 06:51 AM

I think ppl should stop comparing them. Shouldn't say Mary's style is better or the other way around. Both are beautiful & they both have their own individual style.

biboquinhas 06-26-2008 07:10 AM

Marie is changing guys!!! Beautiful hair, beautiful and different smile, the way she steps out of the car and her lovely dress. She is changing to become a princess and hope not a different person!

biboquinhas 06-26-2008 12:06 PM

Well Mary is my favorite Princess but she has a lot of work before beeing what she is now and I think that after two r three years we can see a different Marie. We can see a different Marie today, more stylish, with another smile more like a Princess! I think she will make it but she will be Mary of course she will be a Princess on her own way, but with some effort she will get there!

Paty 06-26-2008 12:09 PM

Sorry Ashelen but why she has to be close to Crown Princess Mary?. Why they must to be compare?

They are diferent women. Each one has their own charm, their own personality and their own style. I like both, They have nothing to do with each other.
IMO I wouldn´t like that Marie change nothing of her, she has not to become a Princess because she is a Princess right now with her qualities and her defects, that made her lovely and diferent.

Why being sorry? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Marie obviously found these eyes within her close environment. Her husband even faced his souverain because of his wish to make her his wife when the odds were that said souverain was not going to be amused - for me that is as closest as meaning that she is a treasure without any comparison as possible.

I personally have a relative who for me is beauty personified though people who judge by the cover and by health reasons and who don't know her and understand her loving person won't ever understand. So what? Enjoy pictures of Mary and find her beautiful to your heart's delight. :flowers:

But why always these comparisons?

RachelD 06-26-2008 12:33 PM

I think Marie looked VERY PRETTY. The dress was great. It was like a traditional 'little black dress', just not black but navy blue! Only problem I had were the heels...from the front they looked like granny shoes...sorry!
But, over all, very happy that she has now 'officially' started her Royal Schedule.

Both Mary and Marie are beautiful women - unique in their own ways.
Marie looks like she is avoiding the tanning salon - she doesn't look as tanned as before.
She also looks like her thoughts are far away - like she isn't really in the moment greeting people and such -
Maybe it's "stage fright" or the language barrier -

In today's Billedbladet, Joachim and Marie gives an explanation for the absence of Marie at the previous event. Seems she wasn't feeling quite well, and as they had a wedding of close friends to attend in Geneva the next day, they decided that she would stay home and try to get better so they could travel and attend the wedding. (Pretty pictures of them going to the wedding).

GlitteringTiaras 06-26-2008 02:22 PM

Thanks Norwegianne, for the update.

Poor thing, I feel for her. She must have been really ill for her not to attend an official event and wanted to feel somewhat better in order to attend a wedding.

I look forward to seeing her at her next gig with Prince Joachim.

Give her time, remember that she was not a princess before marrying so it will probably take a little bit to time to build up a wardrobe fit for a princess. The the non-royals who are now princesses have become more polished with time. I think we will see the same thing happen with Marie.

Maybe I am a bit oldfashioned (must be my thorough Dutch middleclass upbringing), but you don't show up at a wedding with spaghettistraps do you? At least wear a shawl or so to cover up.

I hope that Marie gains some polish and starts to groom herself better - she is so pretty and has a great figure
Joachim looks like he has loosened up a bit --- he is usually so stiff and formal looking - he looks more relaxed now

BT has an article plus one photo (more images here) of the couple in Berlin. According to the journalist, in his/her over gushing article: With smile on her beautiful lips and the twinkle her eyes, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie visited the German capital on Friday. The official visit for the couple was to attend the conference '"Re: Connect - a Danish-German naboskabsprojekt." The aim of "Re: Connect" was to revive and boost the historically close cultural bindings between Denmark and eastern Germany. By means of cultural exchange the two regions were brought closer together, informs the Danish Embassy in Berlin.

The couple also visited the south of the border and saw the remains of the Berlin Wall and the German Parliament. It was the couple's first official visit after their beautiful romantic wedding in May.

She is a normal person with a simple dress.
I think she wants to be treated like any other guests with her friends, not like a princess...

She is a Princess now; it's not like she can turn it on and off when she wants too. 24/7 for the rest of her life she must behave, dress appropriately, and represent Denmark even during private events. :smile:

Joachim is wearing a pinstripe suit - the wedding must have been very informal. Marie is approprietaly dressed. She looks cute, fresh and lovely - and more stylish than some royals we sometimes see at official events. Give her a break - Denmark do not need another Mary.

True... no one likes a copycat.

What Denmark needs (if at all) is a new princess eager and engaged in her new role with appropriate clothing worn at each event. Marie will fill that role, without a doubt.

Moving on: Pretty soon when we will see images, as well as articles, of Marie with the rest of the royal family I'm sure she won't disappoint. :flowers:

If only we could be so lucky twice :smile:

Wonderful pics, thanks for sharing!
In my opinion princess Marie is stylish and elegant a real princess :)

rominet09 06-29-2008 07:56 AM

Beautiful outfits for a beautiful girl !

acdc1 06-29-2008 09:26 AM

Marie looks beautiful. If she's been feeling poorly, hopefully she will be better soon.

When will an "official" picture of her be put on the website (i.e. wearing her Order of the Elephant)? Don't get me wrong, I think that the picture there now is gorgeous.

Marie is so elegant and beautiful in that dress. It really suits her.

After another no-show (twice already) to the 350 Royal Guardsman Rosenborg Tattoo Parade with Joachim, Marie was well enough to attend a concert at Tivoli with the rest of the royal family. You can read the topic and see images HERE.

biboquinhas 06-30-2008 11:35 AM

Well first it was very very bad for Joaquim to say that Marie was not felling well so she stayed at home in order to travle next day to attend a friend's wedding!!! Of course pleasure comes first that is very unpolite thing to say IMO!!! Second when I though she was starting to dress like a Princess with that blue dress she has dissapointed again with this awful Back and white suit! Also that dress from the wedding is not the best, but I think that is just her way of dressing and her taste in clothes!

princess leonor 06-30-2008 11:48 AM

But it is possible for someone to feel sick one day and to feel better the next! It doesn't mean she was avoiding her duties and wanted only pleasures! But, did Joaquim say that Marie prefered pleasure?

pamk 06-30-2008 12:40 PM

Scenario: "I don't feel like attending a concert in my own backyard, so I'll just throw this outfit on, hair's a mess - I'll just pin it up - don't even have time for make-up - oh well, no one will notice or care!"
"I don't feel well and can't attend my royal duties" Next Day: "I feel sooooo much better - let's go to the wedding!" (Plus there's family in Geneva to visit with!)
"I don't feel well enough to attend the military parade" BUT "I feel well enough to attend the next event" and on and on and on ......
This "sick" bit is going to start to wear really thin with the DRF --- Marie better get her act together really fast. I don't think that she had a clue as to what she was getting herself into by marrying PJ and becoming a part of the DRF.
If there are any "gray suits" (like at Buckingham Palace) who work for Queen Margarethe, they are going to come down hard on Marie - just like they did with Fergie. Marie needs to shape up and get with the program - fast!

Actually I like the outfits she has worn, very understated but classy.
After the honeymoon, how soon & how many engagements did Mary have?? I just can't remember. Marie has had a busy week (for such a new comer),I truly wish her luck.

samitude 06-30-2008 01:18 PM

Maybe Marie's pregnant already and that's why she's sick one day and not the next! :devil: :lol:

marlene 06-30-2008 01:43 PM

I'm going to agree with samitde. it would easily explain the eratic attendance at events.Now we just have to wait and see!!!!

I remember that Mary had a ton of pre-wedding events --- she wore heels, hats - the whole show - and she looked wonderful. She seemed to be under such a microscope BEFORE she married Fred and she seemed to hold up fine.

I guess that to me Joachim and Marie seem so oddly matched. He looks so much older than she is --- always sort of stiff and fuddy-duddy in his manner and dress. Marie looks so much younger than she is and not at all worldly and sophisticated in spite of her beauty. It is said that "opposites attract"
