It was a very affected Princess Marie and Prince Joachim, that on Saturday afternoon laid flowers at the French Embassy in Copenhagen.

“I could not believe it. It is very difficult to understand that it could happen in France. You can not,” said Princess Marie of the night’s terror attack in her hometown, Paris.

Many laid flowers and so did the couple too, who had all four children, Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena, with them at the embassy.

“They also need to understand the world we live in - without scaring them, of course,” said Princess Marie.

Princess Marie laid flowers and hugged Princess Athena.

“Flowers is the least we can do,” said Marie, who was clearly very moved and had difficulty holding back tears.
