New royal girlfriend speaks out
16.03.2006

The Royal Family has given its seal of approval to the relationship between Prince Joachim and his new French girlfriend

Nearly a year after finalising his divorce, Prince Joachim has publicly announced that he is involved in a relationship with a French woman, Royal tabloid Billed Bladet revealed on Thursday.

In an interview with B.T. newspaper, Joachim, 36, said of his life after entering into the relationship with the 30-year old Marie Cavallier: 'I am a happy man. If I am brimming with joy, it's because I am. I'm not complaining.'

Is Marie actually speaking to the press or are they quoting friends etc?

She does have something about her that is very Maryish!

Not a wise decision unless she had Joachim's permission prior.

imo she had to keep silence about her relation with Prince Joachim, people now would have a better opinion of her..maybe she´s pretty and has style, but she made a big mistake talking to the press

I dont think she would have talked to the press if she didnt have approval. She does look a lot like Mary and has a much warmer appeal. Shes very cute. Im just wondering why he would pic a girl that looks so much like Mary and start a serious relationship with her.

I couldn't agree more, PrinceJohnny25! I think she must have Joachim's approval to chat to the press, after all.
and I agree this girl somehow oozes much more warmth than Mary's ever done. Just my perception. Also, she is a true natural beauty: stylists won't have to fret over this one, she's gorgeous already. Lucky Joachim.

And, off topic, I realize: anyone know what sort of dog that is? It's so so cute! What I also wonder, but that's for another forum entirely: if Marie's at her day-job, who looks after her pet? (sorry to get off topic here, but I'm contemplating getting a dog, but am hesitating because I'm away a lot and so is my spouse)

I thought that the resemblance between Mary and Marie was quite obvious, too. The long dark hair and the dark eyes.

I guess the men in the Danish royal family like brunettes!

This is strange. With the interviews I'd say she's either out the door or getting ready to walk down the altar.

But the Copenhagen Post is pretty reliable so if it says she has the royal seal of approval, then I guess they're right. I wanted Joachim to get married again but this is a strange way to go about it.

Theres a reason why she is talking. Joachim has done a lot to keep her private and out of the press. There is a reason why he and the Palace are itroducing her so abruptly and strangly. I just cant quite figure out why.

I agree with you half way. I dont find her annoying I find the whole way they are doing it annoying. Why are they introducing her like this. It is so unusual and almost self destructive. It dont understand it. I know the Danish royals are very media savy and are very friendly with them but even this seems out there.

From what I read, its not what she's saying in the interviews that is unusual but the timing and the fact that Joachim hasn't come out and claimed her himself. But if the interviews were planned by her and Joachim with the permission of the DRF, the timing and the manner was definitely a collaboration between the two of them so if only the girl annoys you, that seems a little strange.

I'm not annoyed by either of them, just puzzled.

It's not strange at all. The reason why I find her annoying is her complete lack of discretion. Couldn't she have simply anwered some questions with a simple yes or no. Maybe a small statement rather than go into a whole dissertation about her relationship with him? She is going into so much detail it's disturbing (for a well educated woman she sure lacks common sense when it comes to dealing with journalists); moreover, she tends to brag a bit from the transcripts I've read.

As a result, I find Marie very annoying.

:) Another good point, PJ, as to why I find this whole thing extremely bizarre. Again, as a result Marie ends up being annoying to me. In fact, I am not the only one who has this feeling towards her. The reactions to her and the interviews, photos, etc on the other boards has been somewhat the same: puzzled by her, the situtation, and some wish she would just go away already.

Well that assumes that neither Joachim nor the DRF had any input into the what she would divulge in the interview. If they approved it, it is a good chance that they discussed what she would talk about.

There are too many unanswered questions here about the whole situation; it is puzzling.

We'll probably find out more in days to come.

My question is that if she had the permission of Joachim and/or the royal family, why didn't they come out in a (more) reputable publication? Why a royal tabloid?

The Danish royal family has a tendency to use Billed-Bladet and B.T when they're being interviewed. Princess Elisabeth's 70th anniversary last year was marked with an interview in Billed Bladet and Prince Henrik's temper tantrum was ignited by an interview in B.T.

The editor of Billed Bladet recently was knighted by the Queen.

At this stage in the relationship, I'm not sure if it is right to go to the more serious Jyllandsposten/Politiken.

An interersting tidbit is that when Joachim and Marie were on their holiday together in France last year, they signed in to the hotel under the name Cavalier (sp?) which the Danish press took to mean that Joachim was being romantic, as the meaning of it in Danish would be kavaler. Now it turns out that it wasn't like that at all, and it was in fact her last name...

There are amanzingly many similaryties between Mary and Marie. Names, birthdays, looks etc. I wonder if we hear something from Joachim soon. Or maybe dementi from royal palace
Interview with Joachim from B.T: http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100021711/

Joachim: Love works well.

When Marie Cavallier dreams of becoming mother to three children, she has found the right man in Joachim. Even if the Prince already has two boys, and many perhaps thought that he'd become father for the last time, he's got no plans of stopping there.

"I like children very well. Why should I then imagine that this was it?" he says to B.T. on Sunday. He underlines that it is not something that he has made a firm decision about.

"I don't go around thinking deeply and seriously about it, but neither do I walk around thinking "this is the end.""

"You can't only take those large decisions because you've been through something. But I do have two wonderful children, and it doesn't say anywhere that I can clone them," he says with his wide smile, that he's been using very much recently.

It's probably not very many Danes who don't know today who's to blame for his good mood.

Her name is Marie Cavallier, and she's been his girlfriend for about six months. Denmark first learned to know her a tiny bit this week.

Joachim, himself, is not hiding that his life is very good right now.

"Love works well. My life is well. That is it." the prince tells B.T. on Sunday.

Translated by me.

Thanks norwegianne. That makes more sense now.

Like others I was struck with Marie's resemblance to Mary. Its unusual for brothers to be attracted to the same type of girl although they may be very different once you get to know them.

LOL Warren Come to think of it I don't think Joachim or Frederik have ever dated blondes.

At least its not as unusual as guys marrying girls that look like them. I've seen some husband and wife teams that look like brother and sister. Its always a little jarring.
