Today, Princess Marie, as Patron, opened the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival in Copenhagen. The Festival will officially start tomorrow and Marie will visit its stands and meet with the exhibitors on Sunday. It is the first time that Marie will attend the festival twice.




This year's edition marks the second year of the new CCFF. Indeed, this new version of the festival was created in 2016 when the original festival 'Copenhagen Cooking' decided to collaborate with the Food Organization of Denmark. Since Marie was Patron of Copenhagen Cooking since 2011, she became a Patron of the CCFF. This is the sixth time she visited the Festival (2011, 2012, 2014,2015,2016).

Today was Princess Athena's first day of school ! Athena turned five in January and she started Grade 0 at St Joseph's Sisters School in Ordrup , near the family home in Klampenborg, today.

A small photoshoot was held in front of the family house this morning, before their departure to the school in order not to bother the others families and children going to the same school. Prince Henrik is also enrolled at this school. Princess Athena was understandably shy and nervous on this very important day and she didn't want to get out of the house.

For this important day, Princess Marie wore a new UFO dress with an Isabel Marant jacket first worn in 2016 and her Tod's blue wedges. Princess Athena was very cute in her floral dress and pink cardigan with matching sandals and h…

On the 5th, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena came to support him. Before the race, Prince Joachim showed the children around and they supported him during the race. We can see that Princess Athena, who turned 5 last January , is wearing a new gold bracelet! It is a family tradition that every girl of the family receives a gold bracelet when they turn five. This tradition was started by Princess Margrethe of Connaught. The tradition was kept by her daughter Queen Ingrid of Denmark and then by her own daughters. You can read more about it here.

On the final day of the Grand Prix, Princess Marie (with her dog Apple) was there along with Henrik and Athena. Prince Joachim and his team finished third of the Grand Prix and Marie, Henrik and Athena looked very excited.

Princess Marie met with the children and took part in the activities of the day, including a treasure hunt, despite the bad weather. After the treasure hunt, children and their families reunited to eat a well deserved ice cream.
