Well done, Princess Marie! What a great score: an invitation to give the opening speech at the Ceremony to inaugurate the 10th Autism-Europe Congress in Budapest, Hungary. This is something else for the new patron of the Danish National Autism Association: to be immediately pulled into the fold for this dedicated group of people who study this condition and work hard to demystify it, and to have those who have it suffer less, especially from myths and stigmas. Chapeau!
Marie has spoken in the past about a family member having autism. Wonder who she's talking about? Her oldest brother is the only one with children and due to his last minute absence from Marie's wedding because of a bad cold or flu, we were never able to "meet" his kids via photos. Marie and her husband between them have four children, none of whom have been diagnosed with autism, nor show signs. Hm, who else does that leave?
