Princess Marie Wears Velvet

She is just killing me here. Picture a young girl getting ready for her very first formal event; an early-eighties bar mitzvah in the middle of the frozen midwest winter. That young girl so wanted a velvet pantsuit to wear to that event, to stand out from the other girls who were sure to be wearing satin and ruffles and dropped waists*. That girl had a vision of how she would look, folks, and that vision is exactly how Marie looks here.

Universitetsstuderende fra hele verden er i denne uge samlet i København, hvor de skal komme med løsningsforslag på problemstillinger, der er stillet af erhvervslivet. Det er Copenhagen Business School (CBS), der står bag arrangementet, og som protektor for konkurrencen deltog H.K.H. Prins Joachim i aftes sammen med H.K.H. Prinsesse Marie i en velkomstmiddag for alle deltagerne. CBS Case Competition er en årlig konkurrence for studerende fra universiteter i hele verden. Alle deltagere får stillet en opgave, hvor de blandt andet skal vurdere problemer, som en virksomhed står overfor. Derudover skal de analysere tilgængelig information og udarbejde løsningsforslag. På billederne ses Deres Kongelige Højheder sammen med studerende fra National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Chulalongkorn Business School, University of New South Wales, Queens University, McGill University, University of British Columbia – Sauder School of Business, The Wharton School University Pennsylvania, Maastricht University, University of Belgrade og Copenhagen Business School. 📸 Martin Høien, Billed-Bladet og Philip Høpner ©

Of course I love every bit of this. It’s streamlined and it highlights her prettiness without adding any frou frou whatsoever. Now, Joachim, please straighten your tie and have a talk with your tailor about those trouser hems, thank you.

Marie and her date attended the CBS Case Competition’s Welcome Dinner in Cophenhagen, and as usual, New My Royals has more information on the event.

*Yes, I did get a velvet pantsuit and I loved wearing it. I didn’t kill it in grand style like Marie, but in my own way I think I wore it very well.
