another year of success.... Princess Marie - A modern princess.
This year will mark 10 years since Marie and Joachim saw each other the first time. This Sunday, Princess Marie and Prince Joachim, will baptize their second child, and it is almost on the date four years ago, that the two married. No the French-born Marie is Danish, lives in Møgeltønder and matched her family and her princess duties.
She was 31 years old when she was officially presented as Prince Joachim's fiancée in October 2007. Today she is 36, and a mother of two. There is 'something' about her appearance. Or rather, there has been 'something more'. A kind of maturity, which is not only about being five years older and have had two children, but perhaps rather is a picture of how it looks when one finds herself in the life that well-adjusted and calls for one.
They were married on 24 of May 2008, in Møgeltønder Church. But this year is actually 10 years ago, that Marie and Joachim saw each other the first time. Marie was single then. Joachim was married. There was nothing between them at the hunting party other than good chemistry. But as Marie so beautifully told in the first major interview, the couple gave after the engagement:
- It was almost like it was meant to be, or at least it was a very strange coincidence that we should meet in this period. How else do otherwise explain it?
Only when Joachim was on his way out of his marriage, a few years later, he resumed the contact to Marie. The rest of the story is familiar: A Danish couple on vacation in Avignon, France spotted Prince Joachim, who stood close together with a pretty brunette. The couple snapped a photo and sent the picture home to See and Hear.
How Marie chooses to apply herself in the future will be exciting to follow.
See a gallery of Princess Marie in all shades of her work - and a few pictures of her wedding dress from her wedding to Prince Joachim. We could not resist ...
