*sigh* This is so sad...I've been so used to having her as a Royal Highness and I still think she deserves the title after 10 years of service to Denmark. Not to mention for putting up with Joachim's publicized shinannigans.

Despite the fact that she's now no longer married to Prince Joachim, I think that she should be placed underneath the prince on the royal family website. After all she is the mother to the boys who are 3rd and 4th in line to the throne.

This is how it works in all royal families. Diana, Princess of Wales was the mother to the 2nd and 3rd in line to the throne and when she divorced, she was stripped of the HRH! So was Sarah, Duchess of York! And this would happen to any other woman who marries into the BRF and divorces. Of course, the divorces of Diana and Alexandra were vastly different!!!! I greatly admire and respect how Alexandra and Joachim behaved during this divorce! And despite the fact that she is at the 'bottom' of the family list, she still got a lesser title and is not cut off from the royal family! I have the greatest amount of respect for the Danish royals and how this divorce was handled! Other monarchies should take note!!!!!

Well... the divorce has already been granted to both of them.

It is quite sad seeing their marriage fall into this situation. But it is really like that. There are just some relationships which does not work out. But I really admire them because they handled the 6 months period properly without causing very HUGE trouble. They still remain friends also. Good luck to them!

I think we should all look to the future now. The divorce was their wish because their marriage didn't work, and I'm sure we're all sad about that - but let's put this divorce behind us and wish all of the involved parties good luck in their new situation. There's no point of living in something that doesn't work. Most importantly is also that their boys are well and cared for, and this seems to be both of their priority and so far they seem to have handled it very well.

And I'm sure that Princess Alexandra will go on and represent Denmark and the Royal Family in the excellent way she has always done! :)

What happens To Alexandra's title of Joaqhim remarries?
Will she remain HH Princess Alexandra? Will she still represent charities?
Or do you think the danish RF will slowly wean her away from danish events?
What do you think her role will be in 5-10 years aside from raising her boys.

Should Joachim remarry, his second wife's title would be "Her Royal Highness". I don't think it would have any bearing on Alexandra's new title of "Her Highness". I believe that the only think that will change that is if Alexandra remarries.

I also think that she would still have her charities since she's still a member of the Danish Royal Family. As to the weaning off, I don't think so. She's an intergral part of the success of the Royal Family having served for their interests for so long. She will still carry on her functions, but I don't know past the time should Joachim remarry.

I know that the majority of the princesses have received their titles due to marriage as courtesy. However, Maxima was created a princess and is thus said to be a princess in her own right. Please correct me if I am wrong here. So, does Alexandra's new title since her divorce (and even if Joachim remarries) and the fact that she will continue to be addressed as her HH and still be considered a Princess of Denmark mean that Alexandra is also a princess in her own right? It seems that the only thing that has changed his her prefix from HRH to HH.

Intresting, I'm not sure

An example we may be able to look to is the British royal family (I know they may do things slightly different)

England stripped diana of HRH and she was known only as princess of wales. Was she still a HH? I guess the question is was Diana created princess in her own right and after the divorce was she still considered a princess in your own right? (I wonder what they woud have called her now that Charles has remarried)

If she was made a princess in her own right upon her marraige and then stripped of it upon her divorce I guess its really still not considered her own, maybe her own right by marriage if that makes sense.

I don't think Diana was a princess in her own right. She was always either Diana, Princess of Wales, or The Princess of Wales before the divorce, no Princess Diana of Wales.

Queen Margrethe decided Alexandra's title when they got married, and I would assume that she was indeed made a princess in her own right without being 100% certain about it. But, should she remarry she would take on her new husband's name, etc... and, unlike the Norwegian royal family, who has a tradition for allowing the Princesses to keep their title, but not the HRH-style, the Danish royal family doesn't seem to have a precedent in modern time for what it does when a princess marries a commoner... that I'm aware of, without having studied it extensively.

I think what makes Joachim and Alexandra's divorce even more sad for me is that their marriage showed such great promise of that 'happily-ever-after, ride-off-into-the-sunset' quality. Especially in that picture of them during their wedding dance when Alex had her head tilted up towards Joachim's face so lovingly. Plus, she's given up so much of her life as she knew it to become a hard-working royal. All divorces are sad, but theirs was the most poignant for me.

Following on the previous ... despite it not being 'said', the way Joachim and Alexandra express themselves ... is surely along the accord(s) of what was laid down by the Kongehuset.

If some-one could differentiate between what Joachim, Alexandra and the Kongehuset said ... I would be ever so grateful.

Pigeons speak Danish? Who knew?

We revised our rules in November, and for copyright reasons we're not allowing posting of complete articles any more; we're also asking people who post links to foreign-language articles to give a short English summary of the main points of the article. I hope that helps.

If you don't know Danish, there's no need to remain in the dark hrhcp. I didn't know Danish either but I found this Danish English translator to be helpful. It makes a lot of mistakes for sure but you get the gist of the article.

I've found it helpful when following the DRF even outside of The Royal Forums. A lot of the more informative articles come from Billed-Bladet which doesn't have an English version. So if I go to the website ... Billed-Bladet: Danmarks Royale Ugeblad... and find an article I'm interested in, I just pull up the translator and translate it myself.

The translator works better when you put in a few sentences at a time.

I had forgot about this post :)
I´m swedish so ofcourse I understand danish aswell. So reading articles in Billed Bladet and other danish magazines works just fine... but hearing a dane speak is very confusing and I must say I dont understand half of it. Its so hard to hear what they are saying... I need written words

The announcement was made by the danish court. I dont think Alexandra or Joachim personally made any sort of statement about their divorce
