I agree with you, but we still don't know if he was invited to attend this event. The entire family is often not always invited to every function. This event was listed on the DRF's website in the calendar for a while. Joachim and Marie's names were never listed. It was always listed as the Queen and Prince Consort, and the CP couple. Joachim has never shied away from duties or backed out of anything (as far as I know), so it would be very much out of character for him to blow something off to attend a soccer match instead.

Most invitation - at least the once that are nameless - goes directly to the Royal courts and then the Queen, and only her, decides which member of the Royal Family will go to what. In this case, it really makes a lot of sence, only to let the Royal Family be represented by the Crown Prince couple and the Queen and the Prince consort. The Queen (and the Prince consort) because she is the Head of State, and Crown Prince Frederik (and Crownprinces Mary) because he is next in line and the member of the Royal Family who has the closest connection to the military, with education in all 3 branches of the Danish military including the Special Forces of the Royal Danish Navy and he still serves as a Senior lecturer at the Royal Danish Defence College.

Prince Joachim, although also educated in the military and still active in the defence reserve, does not have the same public connection to the military.

For those reasons, and because there is a limit to how many royals you can have at one place at the time, without loosing the focus of what they are there for, only the Queen, the Prince consort and the Crown Prince couple attended.

I do also agree with Zonk. The future is with the Crown Prince couple and they will get most of the high profile "jobs". Especially since they probably wont take over the business for a good many years. And Joachim and his family will slowly get less and less attention. It is simply not needed. Though for the young princes, it might be a different matter.

Perhaps one should assume that the Queen, her family and staff are capable of planning for the events they need to attend. If the Queen thought P Joachim and Marie should be there they would have attended.

Indeed...

The annual Flag Day will take place on 5. September. Here soldiers and civilians who have served (and sometimes died) abroad are honoured.

M&F will take place at a ceremony at Kastellet at 10.00, (part of Copenhagen Fortress, located a little more than a kilometre north of Amalienborg, see Amalienborg thread), here a wreath will be placed.

A clip from the Defence site of M&F placing a wreath at the memorial for the fallen at Kastellet on the annual Flag Day.
http://www.forsvarskanalen.tv/Defaul...id=7919&bhcp=1

READ THIS: Having rechecked I see that the links leads to the same site, so the clips I referred to are (4) and (5) in parantesis.

Within the first 30 seconds or so, we see M&F arriving and for those who enjoy watching Frederik in his full dress navy uniform, he is also shown inspecting the honour guard.
At 03:00 we see M&F placing the wreath and standing still while a sombre version of the royal anthem is played.

I notice there was a Chinese officer present. Perhaps an attache from the embassy?

And a second clip, covering the main events in Copenhagen. http://www.forsvarskanalen.dk/Defaul...id=7972&bhcp=1
M&F are seen intitially outside Christiansborg.
At 01:37 at Kastellet.
And at 02:34 at the service in the naval church.

Today is the annual Flagday, where those who have served abroad are honored and those who died or were wounded - in body and soul, are remembered.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended a ceremony at Kastellet (part of Copenhagen fortress) this forenoon.

Here is the first (small) pic from the ceremony from TV2: Levende og dde udsendte hyldes - TV 2 Nyhederne
Joachim is wearing the full dress uniform of a lieutenant colonel in the army. Marie is also appropriately attired.

You may wish to keep an eye on this site for further coverage of the event throughout the day.

Thanks, Iceflower.

I notice that for once PET is present in connection with an event involving J&M. AFAIK J&M were the most senior present. The higher ranking government ministers joined in later today.
But of course such an event is naturally a pretty high profile target for terrorism, so I guess it was general percaution.
PET has after all prevented several terror plots in recent years.

A long video from the Defence site, showing the ceremony at Kastellet, where J&M laid down a wreath.

Video: 12 kranse lagt ved monument

The Foreign Minister give a speech lasting some three minutes, then they place the wreath.

Notice at the beginning that Joachim very correctly salute before shaking hands. It's a little detail, but I appreciate it, it shows respect for the occasion.
