BT has an article about how much Joachim work in the Defense Command. His position is nominated at 20 hours a week.
Prins Joachim ansat til 20 timer om ugen: Men så meget arbejder han rent faktisk

BT has tried to find out how much it really amounts to, but the military has declined to give away details.
A reply from the military says that there is no registration and: "Just as with other senior executives in the defense there is no upper limit for time at work".

But in his interview to Børsen Joachim has commented on his workload: "It's a part-time position. If I am to put numbers on how much time I use, it's everything from weeks where I'm not here, to last week where I was on a course the whole week with the defense and had a work-week for up to 70 hours.
If I'm not away traveling I will come by the office a couple of times a week as a minimum in order to be productive here.
There are many who likes to write subjectively without considering how much they know and don't know. All of a sudden it's trumpeted a message that you are lazy, lethargic and idle. Of course that affects you. But I can only say that it is absolutely not an objective news-presentation".

- I will add that Joachim and our Marie attended a gala-dinner last night after a hectic week with the Defense Command, where Joachim and other among other things traveled to Greenland to look at the security situation there. - DK is in these years increasing its military presence and ability to rapidly move military forces to the arctic. F-16 fighters were tested in Greenland a couple of years ago but found operationally unsuited for the climate to operate from bases there.

The problem with Joachim, as it also sometimes is for Frederik, is that they don't get as much press-coverage as their wives. Meeting people in suits may be important, but from a media-perspective it's not particularly news-worthy.
That there IMO actually is a point in having a look at Joachim's workload is another matter. I think he shuld be seen out and about more often or change his and Marie's apanage to an expense account under QMII, more or less akin to the arrangement Benedikte has.

You may recall that J&M a few years ago bought a villa in France.

Now it has been put up for sale. You can see the advert with pics here: Buy a villa/house in montauroux, Provence - Var | HH-7138412

They have tried to rent out the villa, also at reduced prices, but apparently without that much profit, so now it's up for sale. Kom med indenfor i det sydfranske luksuspalæ: Joachim og Marie sætter sommerhuset til salg

I completely forgot they bought a place in France, we usually saw them at Chateau Cayz.
Maybe one of Joachim's friends might be interested?

Apparently to see if it was something for them - okay for bette Henrik.

My guess is that Joachim got his hands on some free tickets and thought: "Justin Biwer? Hmm, perhaps his style is like Iron Maiden? But girls seems to like him, so his style is perhaps like Selena Gomez? - Whatever, I'll ask the boys".

Nikolai and Felix probably laughed themselves to sleep that night.

TILLYKKE: Prinsesse Marie fylder 41 år | BILLED-BLADET

Our Marie turns 41 today. This weekend was caught going into a cinema with her two children, Athena and bette Henrik - to see the Lego-Batman film BTW.
Here she said: "It's a secret what I shall (do on her birthday) but it will be with my father".

Let's talk about money.

Prins Joachim scorer kassen - og får hård kritik: 'Der er mange, der er skuffede' | BT Danmark - www.bt.dk

After the same of Schackenborg Joachim still owned several estates and land around the manor.
Now he has sold a farm.

There was no debt in the farm, so the income from the sale goes into Joachim's pockets.
An amount of some 22 million DKK = 2.95 million € = 3.1 million $ = 2.5 million £.

The surplus after the sale of Schackenborg has been estimated at 56 million DKK. Reduced after the purchase of their current home, which was sold for 34.5 million DKK.
The worth of that home has since then gone up some 4 million DKK.

He has also put up for sale a summer cottage in France, for 16 million DKK. - It may be sold for a little less though.

So if we put all these figures together. Not counting private fortune and investments I'd say J&M are now comfortably rich. In as much as they can live very comfortably indeed for the rest of their lives without lifting a finger - and at the same time ensure the four children will be very well off when they inherit the fortune.

It's a new thing that members of the DRF speculate in buying and selling land and property. But why not?
The sale of the farm means that there will be less of a direct affiliation with Southern Jutland and the DRF, since no one from the DRF now live there.
But M&F are supposed to take over Gråsten - and who knows perhaps one of their four children will settle in Southern Jutland?

wow, nice for Joachim .
Did not know they had purchased a summer cottage in France.
Do they still use Schackenborg for weekend visits?

Frederik and family do seem to enjoy their stays at Gråsten, hopefully they do in the future.

Land speculation indeed is a very interesting past time! The price of houses in my home town of Toronto has risen astronomically, so that anyone who owns a house in the city is practically a millionaire!It would seem that the same phenomenon is happening in all major world cities, so that Joachim is following the trend...bravo

Absolutely! Copenhagen has gone almost complete Los Angeles. In the sense that it's becoming much more difficult for core-middleclass income groups, like nurses, to afford buying property, not to mention living within the city limits!
Many good apartments are being bought and sold for speculation. And hired at very affordable prices to friends. Alexandra lives in such an apartment.
The prices for daily commodities can easily be up to a third higher in Copenhagen than in Jutland. Even taking the tourists traps along the west coast into consideration.

J&M very much use Schackenborg as a weekend retreat or as a base if they happen to have a job in that part of the country. After all they still know quite a lot of people in Southern Jutland.
