Princess Marie of Denmark sizzled in a bright pink ensemble as she stepped out in Paris with her family this morning.
The Princess, 47, was a flash of color among her husband and children who opted for more muted tones to attend the confirmation of her son, Count Henrik, at the Danish church.
Marie accessorized her stunning, daring outfit with a navy clutch and navy pumps and wore a leaf brooch on her blouse. Meanwhile, her husband, Prince Joachim, and sons, Felix, Nikolai and Henrik, were dressed in dark, navy suits, with Athena in a floral costume. printed 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 have “His Highness” titles from from January 2023.

At the time, the monarch insisted the move would be ‘good for them in their future’ and allow the children – who retained their position in the line of succession – to ‘shape their own lives without being restricted by special considerations and duties”. ‘ that formal affiliation with the Danish royal family implies.
However, Prince Joachim publicly spoke out against his mother’s decision in the days that followed – claiming his children had been ‘wronged’ in the process.
After peace talks within the family, as well as an unprecedented public statement released by the Danish palace explaining Queen Margrethe’s decision in which she apologized for any harm that had been caused, the family rift seemed have been cured.
In April this year, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim gathered to celebrate the Queen’s 83rd birthday as all family members were invited to the balcony of Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen.

Although the family appears to be together again, it was announced earlier this year that Prince Joachim and Princess Marie would be moving their family to Washington DC in the United States this fall.
Joachim, who is sixth in line to the Danish throne, is making the move to be able to take up a position as a defense industry attaché at the Danish embassy.
His family’s move to the United States has parallels to when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down as Britain’s royals in 2020 to start 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 security and defence.” Transatlantic cooperation is a high priority area, and I am honored that they found me qualified for this task.
