Princess Mary’s 10-year-old nephew, Prince Henrik, has been tested for the coronavirus, after flying back to Denmark during the pandemic. 

The young prince is the son of Prince Joachim of Denmark and Princess Marie and is ninth in the line of succession to the Danish throne. 

Taking to Instagram, the royal family revealed that Prince Henrik was taken to Rigshospitalet hospital in Denmark with breathing problems associated with asthma.

He was tested for COVID-19 and thankfully, it came back negative, with the family now residing in Amalienborg Palace after returning to Denmark from France yesterday.

Prince Joachim is the youngest son of Queen Margrethe and a younger brother to Princess Mary’s husband, Prince Frederik. 

Back in January,  the 49-year-old, his wife, Princess Marie of Denmark and his kids, Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix, Princess Athena and Prince Henrik, set up home in Paris, which was supposed to last until September 2020.

The prince took part in a military training course, which is classed as one of the highest ranking in France.

“The additional training in France supplements Prince Joachim’s current post in the Danish Defence, where the Prince is special advisor to the chief of defense in relation to the reserve since 2015,” the Danish palace said in a statement.

“The stay in France does not involve any changes in the couple’s ties to their patronages and partner organisations.”
