Mistreatment of Danish Royal Family


Valued Senior Member
The Queen of Denmark has apologised after stripping four of her grandchildren of their royal titles - but has not reversed the decision.
Queen Margrethe II's oldest son, Crown Prince Frederik, is first in line to the throne. His four children will keep their titles.
His wife, Crown Princess Mary, supported the Queen, saying "change can be difficult and can really hurt. But this does not mean that the decision is not the right one".
That's ok then.
So, where does this leave her younger son's (Prince Joachim) family?
From the beginning of 2023, Joachim's four children - Prince Nikolai, 23, Prince Felix, 20, Prince Henrik, 13, and Princess Athena, 10 - will be known by the titles Count and Countess of Monpezat instead of Prince and Princess.
And what does Prince Joachim have to say about that:
Prince Joachim - the younger son of Queen Margrethe - said he was upset by the change.
"It's never fun to see your children being mistreated like that," he told Ekstra Bladet. "They find themselves in a situation they do not understand."
His wife, Princess Marie, said her youngest child had been bullied at school following what she called the "short-notice" announcement.
Meanwhile in the real world....
