It has been stated that the monogram will remain. (Though, I'm certain that if Joachim remarries, some action will be taken...)

Oh, I adore this castle! I'd live there in a second! It's grand as a castle should be, but also has the warmth of a home.:) :) :) :)

BTW, thanks rchaino! I didn't think any inside pics existed!

Joachim lives 320km from Copenhagen (near the german border) and Frederik lives 45km from Copenhagen. Is that right?

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik bought it for him in 1978, if memory serves me right. He took over in 1993, but didn't move in until after the marriage to Alexandra in 1995. So, about ten years.

The castle is not open to the public.

It is situated about five km from Tønder, in the south of Denmark, close to the German border.

I think this castle is a little .... uuhm .... ''petite''. (it's actually called a manor house on the Danish court's web site). I can assure you I wouldn't settle for anything smaller than Fredensborg, not even if Joachim was on his knees in front of me

If you wanna send a letter to the prince you write on the envelope:

H.K.H. Prins Joachim
Schackenborg
DK - 6270 Tønder
Danmark

Map of Denmark: (I hope the link works)
Schackenborg is in the centre of the red circle:

Or Joachim will simply have to find himself an Anna or an Amelia or something (checking my own passport ) and he won't have to deal with this awkward headache.

I didn't know that Her Majesty and the Prince Consort had purchased it specifically for Joachim all those years ago. I had always heard that it was passed on to him from his godparents who didn't have any children or something like that.

Schackenborg has a long history, but the previous owner of the estate was the Schack family who owned it for 11 generations.

In 1978, the last head of the Schack family, Count Hans Schack, died without having produced any children - and he willed the estate to the then 9 year old Prince Joachim. Schackenborg was then added to the other royal residences, before the Prince overtook the management of it in 1993.

I was not bought. For hundreds years ago it was given to the nobility and they could keep Scakenborg as long as they had sons to pas it on to.
the last count didnt have children and there for it was given back to the crown

It's beautiful, but I agree with the comment upthread that it is more of a manor house than a castle, per se, even though that is what it might be known as by title.
