Princess Marie of Denmark dazzled in a pink ensemble as she walked around Paris with her family this morning.
The 47-year-old princess was a splash of color among her husband and children, who opted for more subdued tones to attend their son Count Henrik’s confirmation at the Danish church.
Marie accessorised her stunning, daring outfit with a navy clutch bag and navy pumps, and wore a leaf brooch on her blouse. Meanwhile her husband Prince Joachim and his sons Felix, Nikolai and Henrik wore dark and navy suits, Athena wore a floral print dress.
The event was also attended by Joachim’s brother, Crown Prince Frederik, and his wife, Crown Princess Mary.
In September last year, the Danish monarch announced that her grandchildren Nikolai (23), Felix (20), Henrik (13) and Athena (10) will no longer wear His/Her Highness titles from January 2023.

At the time, the monarch stressed that the move was “good for their future” and would allow the children – who would have retained their positions in the line of succession – to “manage their own lives without being constrained by special considerations and duties”. ‘ that implies a formal affiliation with the Danish royal family.
However, in the days that followed, Prince Joachim publicly spoke out against his mother’s decision – on the grounds that his children had suffered “damage” as a result.
After peace talks within the family and an unprecedented public statement from the Danish Palace in which Queen Margrethe justified her decision and apologized for any injuries, the rift in the family seemed to be over.
In April this year, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim came together to celebrate the Queen’s 83rd birthday, with all family members invited to the balcony of Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen.

Although the family appears to be reunited, it was announced earlier this year that Prince Joachim and Princess Marie will be relocating with their family to Washington DC in the US in the fall.
Joachim, sixth in line to the Danish throne, wants to make the move to take up a position as defense industrial attaché at the Danish embassy.
His family’s move to the US parallels Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s retirement as senior royals in the UK in 2020 to begin their new lives in North America.
Announcing the move in March, Joachim said: “I am proud to still have the opportunity to represent Denmark internationally in the field of security and defense.” “Transatlantic cooperation is an area of high priority and I am honored to that I am qualified for this task.”
