The Danish Cultural Institute is proud to have HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark as its patron. Her Royal Highness accepted the patronage in 2005 and has since visited a number of our institutes.
Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat, is the wife of Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark. Mary’s patronages range across areas of culture, the fashion industry, humanitarian aid, support for research and science, social and health patronages and sport.
In 2007 Crown Princess Mary announced the establishment of the Mary Foundation which aims to improve lives compromised by environment, heredity, illness or other circumstances which can isolate or exclude people socially.
