I don't know danish so I can't say if her danish is correct or not but she looks calm and has a lovely and clear voice!

I can't wait to see the pics!

Congratulations to Princess Marie who is making her debut in a very difficult language. With time, she will improve a lot.

I have to say that Princess Marie did wonderfully today..I was really impressed by her danish! Accented, off course, but clear and enunciated, very pretty.
And the outfit! Excellent!

I think calm and collected is a very good summerization of the presentation. It wasn't perfect grammatically, (there were some r's missing at some endings, and in some words) and it was stilted in places, but the speech improved much as she went along (and got a bit more confident :whistling:) But as she was very clear when she spoke, it was also fairly easy to understand what she was intending to say.

She looked very calm as she was leaving the National Museum.

Billed Bladet has written a gushing article about her Danish - they say that she speaks with a "soft and correct pronunciation", that she has really "cpatured the Danish language tone" and that "no-one may be in doubt now that she will be fluent in Danish very shortly."

Good for Marie! I have been cheering for her since the wedding. She looked lovely, she sounded lovely, and she seemed confident and charming. I hope to see her taking on more solo engagements. I'm sure that Prince Joachim is very proud!

Great to see Marie being confident enough to make her first public speech in danish - it has taken awhile but im glad she has perserved with learning a difficult language

Al_bina 03-05-2009 12:21 PM

It is nice to see Princess Marie undertaking a solo engagement, which indicates a good progress in mastering Danish.

crm2317 03-05-2009 12:47 PM

Although I don't understand Danish I believe the Danish members that she did very well. She is dressed beautifully I love the coat. Well done to her:flowers:
