UPDATED: Princess Marie joins Queen Margrethe in Odense

Yesterday, Princess Marie joined Queen Margrethe in Odense at the Syddansk Universitet , of which she is Patron. This was Marie's first official event since the death of her grandmother last week. Marie was very close to her grandmother and she was at the funeral in France last week with Joachim, Henrik and Athena.

It's not often that we see Marie and Margrethe together on official engagements but it's clear from the photos and various reports that they are very close.

They greeted each other with kisses and hugs ( and a curtsey for Marie) and after the events , spoke with each other for a few minutes before leaving as Billed-Bladet reports:
"Her Majesty flung her arms around Marie when she saw her and the Princess answered with kisses and hugs to her mother-in-law. [...] After the official speeches and the appointment of some honorary doctorates, Queen Margrethe and Princess Marie wished each other a good weekend and a gratifying 'see you later'."

Princess Marie visited the SDU last month to welcome the international students and she was back, along with Queen Margrethe, for the ceremony and reception at the occasion of the SDU's 50th anniversary.

The SDU was created on September 15th 1966. The 50th anniversary celebrations included a ceremony where teaching prizes and research communication prizes were awarded and six honorary doctorates were appointed. A small cocktail reception was held before the ceremony , where Margrethe and Mary meet deans , teachers and doctorates but the royals didn't attend the big evening reception afterwards since it was only for staff and students. The party is held every year but the 50th anniversary was a good occasion for members of the royal family to attend.

For this event, Marie wore a new matching top and skirt. The front and the back are blue while the sides and sleeves are black. The outfit is unfortunately still UFO but the post will be updated when it'll be ID.

She also wore her Longchamp clutch and dark blue pumps that she owns since a few years and that are still UFO. UPDATE 31/10 : I found the shoes! They are by Zara!
