Exactly my thoughts, Odette!
Noone at the royal court could imagine a divorce even in
their wildest dreams! However it did happen, and the DRF got caught
on the wrong foot.
The settlement was a blow to esp. Prince Joachim's economy, and
the Queen lost a family heirloom - the Alexandrine diamond drop
tiara - in the process. She gave it to Alexandra as a wedding gift.
In hindsight, the clever thing would have been to grant Alexandra
the right to use the tiara.
When we discuss the Danish pre-nups, don't forget the there is
no information about the DRF assets in the public domain. If there
were, you'd probably see for yourself that the DRF are paupers
compared to say, the British, the Dutch and the Swedish RFs.
I suspect that most of their assets are tied up in the property of
Marselisborg, the Trend estate and the French chateau Caix.
So for future reference: If you want a generous divorce settlement,
don't marry a Danish prince!
