More details:

Alexandra has purchased a six-room, 215 square meter house.
(The average Danish home-owner family of four persons and a medium sized dog, lives in a house of some 120-160 square meters.)

Alexandra has given up her apanage of 2.4 million DKK - but instead she will receive a yearly pension of 600.000 DKK - of which she has to pay taxes.
That is double the average income of an average Dane, which in 2016 was calculated at 299.000 DKK. (Info from Danish Statistics - which is an interesting read, actually. See here: Statistics Denmark)

It is speculated that Alexandra might involve herself with NGO work but otherwise no do much work. Perhaps write a book.

On 15th January she will move from her current 300 square meter apartment, which she has rented (at a favorable price) from a businessman, to her new house.

Countess Alexandra has given an interview to TV's Mr. Nice Guy, Jes Dorph Petersen, which is to be aired tonight.

In that interview she speaks briefly about her children and the divorce, and unexpectedly being shown a clip of Nikolai, she's completely taken aback and tears up.

I hope you can see the clips. The one I'm referring to is the first clip: Alexandra overrasket af prins Nikolai i sjældent tv-interview - brød ud i tårer - TV 2

Here a well-articulated and confident Nikolai says about what he has learned from his mother:
"The most important thing my mother has taught me is to take responsibility, to help others you meet on your way. like she does, and stand up for what you do/live up to what you do. If you can say to yourself that this is right, you should dare do it/go ahead with it".

- I think Alexandra's reaction speaks for itself. That's a seriously proud mother!

In the last clip Alexandra explains that they from the beginning were open towards their children about the divorce and also why it didn't work.
She explains that she "has the second-best think to a happy marriage and that was a happy divorce".
She also says that she and Joachim have a very good relationship with each other and that the children can feel that.

Based on comments and feedback from viewers Alexandra has left a very positive image of herself after the interview on TV yesterday.

Didn't watch the whole interview, only the clips I wrote about above.
Haven't got time to write a summary now, but if you Google translate the article here, you should get the gist.
