The close-knit Danish family have been hit with sad news, as it’s been revealed that Prince Frederik’s brother is leaving Denmark.
Prince Joachim, who is the youngest son of Queen Margrethe II, is packing up his bags and moving his family across the sea to France.
The 49-year-old, his wife, Princess Marie of Denmark and his kids, Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix, Princess Athena and Prince Henrik, will set up home in Paris until September 2020.
For those wondering whether a Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton style feud has erupted at the Danish palace, meaning the Prince has decided to move away from his family, that’s not the case at all.
Prince Joachim will actually take 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.”
Considering their kids are all around the same ages, we’re sure Prince Frederik and Princess Mary will miss their relatives when they move to France.
And perhaps to take their minds off their cousins moving to a different country, Princess Mary and Prince Frederik took their brood along to the Handball World Championships finals in Denmark this week.
The Danish royals and their kids, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, and twins Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent, watched the action at the Denmark vs Norway final from a VIP box on Monday.
Proving that kids will be kids no matter what status they have, Mary’s son were pictured goofing around while the cameras were pointed on them.
