Danish Queen Reveal Titles Conflict Hurt Her

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark

Queen Margrethe of Denmark expressed her sadness on Saturday at a split that has developed among the royal family as a result of her choice to deprive four of her grandchildren of their titles.

The 82-year-old monarch stated in September that beginning January 1, the names prince and princess would no longer be used by the four children of her youngest son, 53-year-old Prince Joachim.

She has stated that the choice was made to let Joachim’s children Nikolai, 23, Felix, 20, Henrik, 13, and Athena, 10, enjoy regular lives free from royal duties.

The choice, however, ignited unparalleled royal drama in Copenhagen because it infuriated Prince Joachim, who perceived it as a slight.

Queen Margrethe said: “It hurts me that the relationship with Prince Joachim and (his wife) Princess Marie has run into difficulties” in a televised New Year’s message on Saturday.

“Any family, including mine, can experience problems and arguments. This has been seen by the entire nation, she claimed and continued by expressing her conviction that “the family can approach the new year together with confidence, understanding, and new courage.”

Following the queen’s revelation in September, Joachim’s first wife Alexandra expressed her “horror” to tabloid B.T., while her oldest son Nikolai expressed his “extreme bewilderment” to the media.

Princess Marie, Joachim’s wife, described their relationship with Crown Prince Frederik and Mary, the heir presumptive to the throne, as “difficult.”

Just days after the incredibly well-liked royal family celebrated the queen’s 50th anniversary on the throne with pomp and smiles, the outpourings have shocked the Scandinavian nation.

Queen Margrethe‘s action was in line with a tendency among other European royal families, particularly those in Sweden and Britain, to streamline their kingdoms.
