Summary of article in Billed Bladet #08, 2016.
Written by Dorthe Quist.

Which basically about an interview J&M gave to the Spanish magazine Hola and said about their children.

Joachim: "Henrik is extremely kind-hearted, but he can also be stubborn. As for Athena, she has a strong personality. She has three brothers and she just... rules! She's the viking of the family!
We try and raise them as any other children".
However, they also learn that there are times when they have to stand on a balcony with farmor (QMII) and be photographed, because that is also a part of their life and they have to learn to live with that.

Marie: "We never really discussed other names than Henrik (she has said she calls him Henri privately). I've always been fond of the name, even before I met Joachim. And then it made even more sense due to my son's farfar (PH).
As for Athena's name, it's also a name I've always been fond of... the Greek goddess. It's a strong name".

Joachim adds that the name fits their daughter, even when she was a baby.

This year Felix will probably be confirmed right? If so, maybe May?

Yes probably.
In Copenhagen children tend to be confirmed around age thirteen.
Further away from Copenhagen it's fourteen.

Don't know why.

However, many opt for a so-called "nonfirmation". I.e. they are either celebrated with a party and presents like those of the same age who are confirmed in church.
Or as is the case with my children, they get a party in their honor when they turn fifteen. That's the case with my daughter later this year.
It started with her older brother. None of our children are religious, so he preferred to be celebrated when he turned fifteen.
Fifteen is the age of sexual consent in DK - and also the age where you are no longer tried as a child if you break the law, but end up in a criminal court.

A nonfirmation is different from a confirmation in several ways: No religious ceremonies. No long white dresses, which some girls around thirteen-fourteen would rather do without! No posing in front of the altar or outside the church.
But otherwise pretty much the same. A big family-party with speeches (to the embarrassment of the child... ), homemade songs praising the child (who is even more embarrassed ) and truck-loads of presents (that's pretty cool though ).
Followed by a "blue Monday" after the confirmation, where the child along with friends go to town and shop and celebrate and shop even more.

Day out for Nikolai , Felix, and Joachim
Prins Joachim i byen med sønnerne: Fridag med farmand - Herognu

Not sure I like Nikolai holding Joachim's cigarette
Is it that hard to put it out for a moment ?

Thanks, Polyesco.

For a nicotine-addict your suggestion is

Do any of our Danish members, who just like me were born in the Younger Stoneage, remember the illustrations to the Jan-books?
Felix reminded me about them right away.

Yeah I know it's hard. But a horrible example for his teenage sons.
Put it out.

Nikolai and Felix are at that age were they focus more on their hair.

I always felt he looked a bit pale and weak - but the new photos are cute. I especially like the one at the window.

Wow hard to believe Henrik is 7. Happy birthday to the little prince.

Love the photos. All three of Joachim's sons are attractive young men. I love the second photo.

They are two goodlooking young men. Of course they had (and have) goodlooking parents, the apple does not fall far from the tree.
