They are getting divorced!!!
Margrethe and Henrik are sorry, but they are sure that it'll be figured out with the kids and so. Joachim lives at Schakenborg and Alexandra at Amalienborg with the 2 boys!
She will be Her Highness Alexandra, not princess.....

They've said that they've agreed about it and will share the kids. They both want to continue with their duties, with organisations and so, and hopes that they'll be supported in their decisions!
They can't say what the main reasons are, but they still hope that the people and press will accept it!

I saw the headlines on the Swedish gossip magazine "Svensk Damtidning" which said that the divorce was caused by Joachim's alcohol problems. But this must just be vicious rumour, don't you think?

What horribly sad news! Even thought there has been much speculation lately, I never really though that it was true. They really seemed like a couple who had it together. Their poor boys. :(

I saw this news at of all places, Imagine Scandinavia which has lots of photos of the couple's relationship and wedding and their kids. I was actually quite shocked to read this.

It seems to me to be a major bit of news ... or is that just me? It seemed that divorce was so rare in most other royal families other than the British and Monaco royal families.

But I guess marital relations must've been at such a crisis point that Margrethe would allow her son and daughter-in-law to divorce. Not to stir up trouble, but I wonder if the couple have wanted to divorce for some time but the Queen asked them to wait until after Frederik and Mary had been married for a few months and settled into their new life for a bit.

I guess sometimes there is truth to be found in those tabloid stories ... unfortunately.

Nobody can tell what the reasons were! It could be drinking problems or it could be thousands of other things!

Here's a translation of the statement. I'm sorry if someone's already made links or posted a translation and I hope it makes sense.

The Royal Family announces:
Their Royal Highnesses Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra, AMALIENBORG, September 16th 2004.

Her Majersty the Queen and his Royal Highness the Prince have instructed the Lord Chamberlain to announce that their Royal Highnesses Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra have decided to separate with the intention to seek divorce.
It is with deep regret that the Queen and the Prince have accepted this decision. At the same time the Queen and the Prince will give their full support to Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra in the difficult time that lie ahead. The Queen and the Prince wish to take part in finding a worthy solution for their son and daughter-in-law and that the children Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix will be ensured safe conditions.

There's an agreement between Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra about the decision and the conditions regarding the separation.

Prince Joachim will be living at Schackenborg. For now Princess Alexandra will be staying in the couple's apartment at Amalienborg with Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix. During the time they will be separated Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra will keep her current title and after the divorce she will be addressed Her Highness Alexandra.

Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra state:
"After many and hard considerations we have with mutual understanding decided to separate with the intention to seek divorce. There's an agreement between us about the conditions for the separation and together we will maintain custody of our children.

We each wish as far as possible to maintain our assignments including to take on official duties and continue the work with the organizations we are connected to. We have always experienced a great kindness and friendliness everywhere and we hope people will understand this difficult decision we've made".

Ole Ullerup, Lord Chamberlain.

This is such terribly sad news. I always love them together. I never thought the rumours had any truth in them. I really feel sorry for all of them. It must be such a tough decision on them all.

Why do they get a house in Denmark? Their daughter married a Prince not them! I see this as a real imposition on the Danish people!

While Princess Mary's father took a short term lecturing job in Copenhagen just after the wedding he did not expect to live permanently in Denmark at the expense of either the country or the Royal family.

Unhappy Sad news indeed...

It is now official: :(

The Danish royal house confirmed on Thursday that Prince Joachim and his Hong Kong-born wife Princess Alexandra are to divorce after nine years of marriage.

Danish public radio announced the news earlier this week following rumours that the pair had been living separate lives. While the palace initially declined to confirm the reports, the news was made official at a press conference in the Yellow Palace at Amalienborg on Thursday.

The couple, who married in November 1995, have two children – five-year-old Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix, who's two.

According to a statement read by royal family chamberlain Ove Ullerup, Queen Margrethe and her husband Prince Henrik "deeply regretted" the couple's decision.

Too bad I can't really understand fully the whole statement on the official pages of the danish royal house... What a surprise!! I mean they looked happy...
