No, Madam didn't punch Marie, that's just play acting makeup for the rescue demos.
What a natural! Princess Marie was in fine form as she helped her local elementary school complete a two year long fire prevention program. Engaged and happy to be there, interacting well with the students, being very helpful and maternal in her approach - this is how a Danish princess should be! In the video below, a young student finds that Marie is "very friendly". Helping on a local level, with long-term involvement for maximum relationship-building, full participation instead of just observation and only the most common-sense acknowledgement of her position (flowers, formal entry, diploma distribution). Marie knows that there is no i in team!
Poor fame-hungry, camera-whoring Princess Yrma of Pictish Infinity. She has not tuned into the fact that getting out into the peasant-laden provinces acksherly gets you more attention from the press. Manly sows with new pricey foreign-label shoes and lipstick don't get attention in either the capital or the whisky-soaked suburbs, especially if you spend the rest of your time focusing on international attention through visits to Africa with a camera or to the US with the black Amex. Some strategery from our marketing genius Princess Buzzle!

Princess Marie Extinguishes Fire By Uwe Iwersen
FIRE AND WATER: It's not every day that you have a royal firefighter and teacher at your school. This is what students at Tønders Primary School had yesterday.
Princess Marie was pulled into her contingency uniform and therefore gave extra luster to the Fire Prevention Day which took two school years to go through.
It was part of the nationwide "Learn about fire-campaign 2012" of which Princess Marie is patron. And she is not afraid of fire or water: Following the instructional education, as she had gone through in 2011, Princess Marie was able to extinguish fires, spray nozzles and finally handed out diplomas to students.
