Joachim has been undergoing surgery for a disease, Dupuytrens contracture, which for some reason forms of lumps of the tissue under your skin, and eventually causes your fingers bend into the palm of your hand (wow, this is such a bad description of it but I am tired, so bare with me).

According to the bt.dk article; all of the (adult) members of the royal family have appeared in the revue, and have all received/earned their sash

As there is a genetic predisposition in getting Dupuytren's contracture and it's as high as 60-70%, there is a risk that the children will inherit it.

thank you for the information.
I recall prince Henrik having a similar bandage on his arm, years ago. Might Henrik have the same condition? (Im speaking of the prince consort)

That is my favourite pic as well followed by the one of little Henrik laying his hand on his mother's shoulder (see the first one in the jv.dk gallery) - extremely cute!


Here's a video:

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #34, 2013.
Written by Ken Richter.

In 1863 an oak rowing boat was found in a bog at Nydam in Southern Jutland. The oakboat turned out to rowing vessel for war and it is 1.700 years old. That boat is now exhibited at Gottorp Schloss in what is now Germany.
Joachim has been patron of that boat for 25 years and for the past eight years a replica has been made and on this day it was going into the water for the very first time.
Joachim brought along his wife and all his boys. The two oldest helped in laying the last hand on the boat before launch.
Now followed a number of speeches which may be a little boring if your are three lively boys, but they endured patiently.

Then time for the christening and the was left in the capable hands of our Marie who recieved a drinking horn with mead and christened the boat Nydam Tveir, tveir being old Danish for (the) second.
And finally the launch. But careful! The boat still has no ballast and as such it was rocking quite a lot, so Joachim had to admonish his two oldest to: "Now stay on the other side", so that the rest of the family could enter the boat safely.

Joachim explained afterwards: "It's amoving moment to see it float in the water. - I have followed the work (on the replica) every single year and the boat was perhaps the conception of Denmark as a seafaring nation".

BB also informs us that Joachim went to a Pink Floyd concert recently. - (Which proves that he has a good taste in music.) - Before he went in he said: "It's very big. I've never seen Pink Floyd before and you cannot let a chance like that pass you by".

Who can ever forget this track?

Mary is in Jordan and Frederik is coming to the U.S. Prince Joachim would be regent if Frederik is out of the country.

That goes for your country too. Don't know about Southern California but there were well developed cultures in Arizona and Nevada around that time. But then the desert returned...

He isn't, it's our Marie.

Merely a mild case of senility.
