Princess Marie visits SOVI in Herlev with Autism Denmark

Image
Today, Princess Marie was in Herlev as Patron of Autism Denmark since . This cause is very important for Marie as her nephew (son of her brother) is autistic.

She visited SOVI which is a social workplace for autistic people. She was given a tour of the facilities and an insight into their daily life.

The workshop aims to create job identities for autistic people. According to Kongehuset : " Employees learn to be included in workplace and communities through an individual planned course to prepare them for the labor market."

Marie had the occasion to meet a lot of people in the workshop! 
Today, she wore a new blue blazer by Ralph Lauren with a black top and black pants.


She also wore Sergio Rossi  black suede ankle boots and an old UFO clutch. She first wore these booties at the Festival of Light in May 2016.



She wore diamond earrings with a new ring and a Fleur de Lys brooch that she first wore for the Christmas Eve service.

Reception hosted by the Icelandic Presidential couple during their state visit to Denmark

Image
Last night, after a day of engagements with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, the President of Iceland and his wife hosted a reception in honor of the Royal family at the Hotel in Copenhagen.
Return dinner & reception hosted by the couple visiting is a traditon during a state visit which the entire royal family attends. It's usually a great way to see them together in a less formal setting than during a gala dinner.

For this reception, Princess Marie wore a jacket which she first wore in 2011 while pregnant with Princess Athena and a old UFO skirt.
She also wore her Bottega Veneta brown clutch with nude Sergio Rossi pumps and her Christine Hvelplund earrings and ring.








We'll next see Marie tomorrow when she'll visit Herlev with AutismDenmark.
