The pram is lovely, classy looking. They look so happy with their little one tucked safely inside. Joachim's exuberance is so evident. Nice to see royals acting like normal people with normal good feelings. Similar to Margrethe and Henrik.

The formal side is also eye-catching, but it is when they're incognito that true charm comes out. Joaquim and Marie may become the more popular couple of the two (referring to Frederick and Mary) princely couples.

well I think it is the same pram that Mary used with Isabella. If it isn't is very similar and I think they should have borough it from Mary!

Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende has a feature about Prince Joachim, in honor of his upcoming 40th birthday.

40 og genrejst - Danmark

The article talks about the prince's personality; he is a bit reserved, which has come across as snobbish in the past, but he is really kind and his demeanor is a bit of a throwback to royals of the past. It also states that Joachim was destined to become a gentleman farmer.

Could someone please translate the article with more detail? There are many paragraphs in the article itself, surely more than 4 sentences worth of broad translation.

Thank you.

The article then goes on to talk about his marriage and divorce from Alexandra; how she was always more outgoing than Joachim. It briefly mentions that there was a period in the late 1990s when the Danish people didn't have confidence in Frederik as a future king, but saw Joachim in that role instead. If you go to google and type in "google translate danish to english", you can read the full article. It does not mention any specific plans that the prince may have for celebrating his birthday. There are many paragraphs, but they really just go into detail on the main points.

Billed-Bladet also has a feature that looks at Prince Joachim's life throughout his forty-years:

He was a very cute little baby!

Cute baby and very handsome boy and young man. He is a very good looking prince.

I have a question about the translation Google comment. What are the actual steps to get a translation from Danish into English? Those of us who are not Danish speakers are often left out of the loop with some of the articles that are listed.

Thank you for this information.

Having read the translation of the longer article, I can see how Joachim and Alexandra may have been perceived as going in two different directions. It is important to note that at the time, Frederick was not married yet, therefore there was no crown princess, and that Alexandra had much more spotlight on her than Marie does now.

Alexandra, the business woman from a bustling Hong Kong, tackled the job of being a royal princess head on. It may have been overwhelming for the marriage, and a younger prince, who was in his twenties at the time. The perception of those royal
responsibilities may have gotten away from them as a couple and the marriage ended up floundering. All of this despite two beautiful boys.

Timing is so important in life.

I think the way Alexandra and Joachim's divorce was conducted speaks volumes of their characters. I have immense respect for these two adults, who put their children's needs and happiness ahead of everything and had simply an exemplary separation.
It was of course very hard for Alexandra to adjust to the Royal life, for she was the only leading Royal lady of Denmark for years (apart from the Monarch); it was considerably easier for both Mary and Marie. That may have well taken its toll on Joachim and Alexandra's marriage.
All 4 of them - Joachim, Alexandra, Marie and Martin deserve only the highest praise.

Thank you for translating parts of the article, sgl. I hope no one will mind me saying this, but I always thought it would have been better if Joachim were the first-born; he does seem to be the more prepared and hard-working of the brothers. I doubt Frederik would mind as well; he would have more time to pursue his hobbies and given his incredibly shy and private nature, would probably be quite glad of being the 'spare'.

Yes, both Joachim and Alexandra conducted their separation, divorce, and new marriages, with admirable style and grace, all to the benefit of their children.

Their parents' new husband and wife are conscious of their role as unifiers of a now extended family. All are thinking in terms of making the situation smooth and supportive for the children. This is very unusual and shows enormous caring on behalf of both Joachim and Alexandra. Very beautiful.

One can hope that these two young princes will continue to live happy lives with the new families that have been created.

Bunte has created a very nice quiz about Prince Joachim.

Billed-Bladet has interviewed a few of Prince Joachim's close friends in honor of his 40th birthday:

Billed-Bladet - Prins Joachim roses af vennerne

They have been friends with him since they were children. They say that he is loyal, a homebody, friendly, and as one says, "a miserable sportsman".

I like them, Joachim seems genuinely happy, and seems to have learned from past mistakes, whilst Marie is a sweet unpretentious young woman.

He is very attentive to her, is always there to open a door, lend a hand, take her arm, just beautiful. Hope this doesn't change with the years, as she becomes more familiar with the royal events, or as they have more children.

Very sweet to see such caring.

Do you think that Marie will get back from maternity leave after the christening? I miss her a little bit.

The schedule of events on the Danish calendar doesn't seem to go that far, but I would imagine that she would get back to royal duties at the end of August/early September. This is the time of year that most royals get back from their summer holidays.

I wonder if they will go to France during August, like they did last year, staying at the Chateau. Maybe the little fellow is still too young for international traveling.

I would imagine the French relatives from both sides of the family will be attending that christening, it's only a month away. I can't wait to see those pictures, and Marie's grandmother with him.

Funny that you should mention visiting France. Billed-Bladet has an article that talks about the French home Prince Joachim was having built is uncompleted and in an "untidy state". He started to build the home while he was still married to Alexandra. Apparently, the construction company that was working on it has declared bankruptcy. It is unknown whether or not construction will be completed.
