Prince Joachim and Princess Marie at the Reception for the Olympic and Paralympic athletes

Today, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie (along with Queen Margrethe, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and Princess Benedikte) attended a reception for the Olympic and Paralympic athletes at Christianborg Palace. Crown Prince Frederik didn't attend because he injured himself yesterday.

The reception is held after every Olympics and Paralympics games , and it's the same in most country, and the entire adult members of the family attends. This year, Christian and Isabella were there too, probably because they weren't in Rio this summer.

The family welcomed the guests to the reception , before Queen Margrethe made a speech to congratulate all the athletes.

For this event, Princess Marie wore red & white , the color of the Danish flag. She wore an old UFO jacket with a red dress. We first saw that dress last march , during her trip to the Faroe Islands. At the time, we had very limited photos so I couldn't identify it but i managed to find it today! It's the 'Paige' dress by Diane Von Furstenberg! This is the first time (that we know of) that Marie is wearing DVF.

As we can't see the dress closely, I made some close-ups for comparisons.

Surprisingly, I learned that this dress dates back to 2008 and I don't remember Marie wearing it publicly before last march so i think she wore it privately for years before suddenly wearing twice in 7 months 8 years later, she's full of surprise!

She also wore the brooch that was given to her after Princess Athena's birth and her LK Bennett 'Sledge' pumps and 'Leola' clutch.
