Marie to become protector of UNESCO Denmark

I have to admit that I already thought this was a done deal back in March, when she had her first engagement with UNESCO Denmark, but on the coming Tuesday, Princess Marie will be presented as the royal protector of the organization.

In the months since the first engagement at the National Museum, Princess Marie has attended meetings with the organization to learn more about the way it is run, as well as participating in an UNESCO conference on school environment projects last month.

The latter seems to reflect that while being a protector is, by and large, being a figure head – some knowledge about the organization and how it operates may also be required.

UNESCO Denmark will be Marie’s third protectorate. In addition to her protectorates, the Princess will also be collaborating with the University of Southern Denmark – however, this role has not been quite defined as of yet.
