Coming from Yrma's favourite and most supportive rag-mag

HA! BB #35: BÝrnenes prinsesse - The children's Princess.

Recently, Marie visited the H.C. Andersen Children's Hospital in Odense. She she was recieved by Maja Augustinus Uhrenholdt, aged eleven. Maja is suffering from a rare lung disorder and she has so far spend about half her life in hospital.

During the visit Marie was told about the hospital and the research co-operation between the hospital and Southern Jutland University, which Princess Marie the patron of.

One of the projects involves following 3.000 children from birth until they turn eighteen. The purpose is to map their general health, individually, as well as a segment of the population. But also to learn whether their lifestyle has an effect on their health in the long run.

On the way to the cancer ward which she was to visit next, Marie took her time to say hello to all children on the way, and it was here that she noticed a mother sitting on a bench with her daughter on her lap. The girl was somewhat unsettled by the commotion, so Marie sat down next to them, and chatted with the child while caressing her knee. And after a little while the girl calmed down and didn't find it so bad with all those people around. Princess Marie also told the photographers maintain respectful distance, and not to thrust their lenses up the nose of the child.





Later on Marie visited the workshop ReMiDa. Here children have access to all sorts of discarded material which they can convert into whatever their creativity leads them. In the words of a three year old:
-"That thing deserves to become another thing".









And so the children had made hats from table napkins and one was presented to Marie as a gift, which she put on her head straight away. As you may be able to tell from the photos the napkin-hat was adorned with bottons, pearls and pompoms. The children had also made genuine princess shoes for Marie, complete with pearls and glitter.





Then the hospital clowns, Liva and Pablo entertained, before it was time for six year old Laura Rygaard to take over.

Laura Rygaard, having a tumor on her spine, and being in the princess-age, was dressed accordingly in a frilly skirt and silver shoes.





Laura told Marie about a computer game for the children at the hospital, which Laura herself has helped create. The game is basically a run down of what is going to happen when a child go to a hospital and it's developed as a way to explain the children what is going to happen so that they won't be so scared.

There is a very charming pic in the article of Laura whispering something to Marie, while they sit in front of a laptop. It looks like instructions... and Marie said afterwards:
- "It's utterly fantastic, because it's made and explained in a way that is not at all frightning".







In one of the corridors Marie met a familiar and dear face in the shape of the nurse Merete Matz, who for a number of years was nanny for Nikolai and Felix and who has also helped out at Schackenborg from time to time. They greeted each other heartily.

Our reporter observed that our Marie seemed much more confident, empatic and relaxed this time than usual. Suggesting that she has now genuinely settled in as Princess and also that this is a topic that is close to Marie's heart.

These photos are great. There was a time (not so long ago) when BB would have said this about Mary only.

They always praised Yrma, but I never see them write "the children's princess" - THANK GOD!

It is really not very hard to notice how Marie has grown into her role now, after what......five years?
She is praised for her grasp of the Danish language, for warmth toward the Danish people, and she makes everybody very comfortable around her. She truly has blossomed as a person, wife, and mother, and totally embrace of her new homeland. Now that's a Danish Princess!

These pictures are just fabulous and you can tell that Marie has that special "thing" that can help
her connect with people and especially children.  You'd never see Yrma connecting with them like this.

Danes hide your children...especially if they are brown. Ol'Yrma is going to be stalking the streets of Copenhagan in search of fun,impromptu photo ops with children and we know what happens when Mary encounters children.

Lovely article , It's easy to see from photo's that Marie enjoys meeting and greeting and that the  show ain't all about her. She doesn't mind if the kids steal the limelight !

Children are very honest, and the pictures we see of Marie they appear to be very responsive to her. How many pictures have we seen of a tense child with Mary, and I just don't mean her own.

She has a natural effervescence that Mary seems to force. Marie seems like the type that lets things roll off her and Mary seems to obsess. Marie has a naturalness around children and genuinely likes them. If she didn't I don't think she would have been attracted to a man who already had two children like Joachim did, even if he was royalty. She seems to like having her step sons around and has fun with them and I don't see her treating them differently than her two younger children.
