According to people at the Scandinavian Royals MB, the addres is Svanemøllevej 12 in Østerbro in Copenhagen, about 4 km from Amalienborg and 3,5 km from Prince Nikolai's school. It cost 7 million DK, which is about 914 000 Euros. I saw at some website that it's 269 square metres.

Unhappy Princess Alexandra's New Home

I just saw Alexandra's house on Colourpress and in this thread. It's really very nice. However, I was shocked to learn about the acquisition of the house and the dates. I'm an innocent - I had no idea that Princess Alexandra and Prince Joachim had been in the process of divorcing much longer than I had originally thought (I thought it just occured when it was announced).

Regardless of the reasons why they're divorcing or who did what to whom, it's very sad because there are young children involved who might not understand why mommy and daddy don't live together anymore. I hope that everyone will work together to make their adjustment easier and less traumatic :(

What I find odd is that they managed to keep it a secret from the press for so long. I mean, the house. But as it was purchased around Mary and Frederik's wedding, it must have been the ideal time to house-shop. Especially to get ones mind off other things.

I agree. Perhaps the bushes are there to add privacy.

Yeah, that is odd. All during the events preceeding and up to the wedding, there not one shred of evidence that something was going on. Strange as it may seem, I have to commend the royal family for carrying on and keeping up appearances. Not one of them gave away what was going on between Alexandra and Joachim, including Alexandra and Joachim! They seemed close and happy.

I think because everyone was sooo focused on F&M the couple managed to slip under the radar.

Interesting that proximity to Amalienborg and Nikolai's school is mentioned but what about Schakenborg where Joachim will remain?

What are the logistics financially for the home?

Will the Queen cover the expenses of the home herself or will Alexandra be expected to out of her own allowance now that she is getting one herself?

I guess it would make sense in some ways if the Queen covered expenses for the home financially seeing as how Nikolai and Felix are in line to the throne. I think the British Queen made similar arrangements with Diana and Fergie when they divorced too?

Because the house is in need of repair and it will take a few months to renovate the home.

ALEXANDRA'S FIRST APPEARANCE SINCE DIVORCED ANNOUNCED

Denmark's royal leading ladies have been showing their arty side this week. Princess Alexandra stepped out on Wednesday to open an exhibition at the NB Gallery in Roskilde, while her sister-in-law Princess Mary did the honours at another show in Copenhagen.

Alexandra, who was her usual elegant self in a grey floral-print suit complemented by a cream hat, was making her first official appearance since the announcement that she and Prince Joachim are to divorce. A large crowd of well-wishers were there to greet the royal visitor, who seemed to be in good spirits throughout the event.

The Hong Kong-born princess' appearance comes hot on the heels of the news she is moving out of Amalienborg Palace. Royal officials have confirmed newspaper reports that she has bought a 270-square metre villa for £665,000. The 40-year-old will live in the former embassy in the Danish capital with her sons Nikolai and Felix.

Mary, meanwhile, received an equally warm welcome when she opened a new exhibit by the famous French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Wearing a sharply-cut black suit with a mauve hat, Prince Frederik's pretty wife was given a guided tour of the show by the snapper himself.

Alexandra news about apanage she will receive.
Alexandra will receive about 1.73 million kroner (233,000 euros, 288,000 dollars) a year, which will be tax-free unless she remarries, a statement from Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen's office said.Prince Joachim's civil list will as a result be reduced from 2.56 million kroner to 1.83 million kroner a year

Alexandra has worked hard and diligently for nine years for Denmark with Joachim. I think it is only fair that she receives recognition and compensation for her efforts. I also think she is entitled to a settlement like anyone else going through divorce proceedings. The government allowance serves the purpose.

I believe that since she is pursuing her many royal duties, she is earning her allowance.

Hello. I am new hear, but I totally love the imporvements on this site.
As far as the divorce, when I watched the F&M wedding, I got a weird feeling when I saw Alexandra walk down the aisle to sit. She looked kind of lonely. But I dismissed my feelings cuz I totally thought, like everyone else in the world, that her marriage was unbreakable. But I think that divorce is so wrong cuz Alexandra is a wonderful royal and I think that Joachim is making a big mistake in letting her go. But I appreciate the decorum that the royal family has presented. It was totally not like Diana & Charles where you could see their disdain for each other. Well I wish the best for Alexandra. But what will life be like for her afterwards? I wonder what will she be doing career-wise?

Welcome to TRL Reina!

And thanks for the lovely pictures of Princess Alexandra, Paulette! I'm glad to see that she supports the fight against breast cancer - especially now that it's October!

The messages about who's paid for her house seems not to be very clear yet. Some articles says that Queen Margrethe paid for it via the company that was set up to buy her a house - but according to their pre-nup agreement - it says that Prince Joachim are to provide her with a home in case of divorce. Maybe someone can shed some light on this?

The sum of her apanage seems appropriate too. I hope she and the boys will like their new home once they move in!

Here is the official statement from Denmark on the dimes and nickles Alexandra will receive post-divorce.

(In English, courtesy of the Scandinavian Royals MB): The Danish Government will soon propose a bill that gives Princess Alexandra an appanage of 1,735,000 Kroner (approx. $ 290,000) each year for the rest of her life, also if she re-marries - but in that case she'll no longer enjoy tax exemption.
At the same time Prince Joachim's appanage will be cut from 2,567,000 to 1,832,000 Kroner.

And if you can read Danish, the complete details: http://www.stm.dk/Index/dokumenter.a...n=0&d=2159&s=1

They forgot to mention that her apanage will follow the inflation, so *that's* not the exact amount she'll be getting, but that's what the amount is in today's money. If that made any sense.
