Considering the day and circumstances, I do not find your remark amusing.

Thanks, Polyesco.

I think Joachim's words can be summarized into this brief quote: "Peace is everybody's business, not just the individual."

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #46, 2018.
Written Henrik Salling.

As you all know The War to end all Wars ended 100 years ago on the 11th November.
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended a ceremony in France to commemorate that day.
It took place in the French town of Braine, where a number of ethnic Danes, who at the time fought for Germany are now buried.
Briane is a partnership town with the Southern Jutlandic town of Haderslev, which during WWI was a part of Germany.
As such there is a special dedicated Southern Jutlandic cemetery in Braine.
The cemetery was opened in 1921 and contains the remains of 79 ethnic Danes dug up elsewhere in France. Most Danes were buried in mass graves, so is rare to find identifiable of Danes in France.

Marie joined her husband straight from Glasgow where she had attended a conference about autism.
So on the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day in the eleventh month 2018 J&M attended a moving ceremony, almost appropriately under a heavy November rain at the cemetery in Braine. Joachim dressed in his full dress uniform and with representatives from Denmark.
It started with memorial service in the local church performed in unison by Catholic priests as well as a Danish parish priest. And here both French and Danish psalms were sung.
Then a wreath was placed at the Danish cemetery in Braine, attended by Danish as well as French veterans associations. Here were also speeches including one from a very moved Joachim.

But of course it wasn't all sadness and dark memories. While there J&M also had the opportunity to cement the Danish-French relations on this more local level. And that took place in the evening before the 11th.
A very informal dinner in the local community hall followed later on by a concert in the local cathedral, Saint-Yved de Braine where Slesvig Music Corps (A Southern Jutlandic military band) played a new piece composed for the occasion as a present dedicated to Braine. The band also played a march, Prince Henrik's Salute - that moved Joachim.

- I cannot help thinking how much it must have meant to Marie to commemorate this very special day, that means so much to the French, in France.

Here's a video of the family attending the premiere. Of course they were once again asked about the move to Paris:

Thanks, Iceflower.

Hmm, interesting.
What do you think about their replies?

They are looking for a place to live.

It has not been decided how long they are going to be in France.

Joachim: Vi tager den første udfordring - det er det første år, så lad os nu bare fokusere på den,
"We take on the first challenge - that's the first year, so let us focus on that."

Our Marie about returning to France:
Det bliver dejligt. Jeg er meget glad for være tæt på min familie, og at børnene lærer lidt mere af den franske kultur og lærer at tale fransk lidt bedre. Det går godt, men... Det er en stor chance
"It'll be nice. I'm very glad about being close to my family and that the children will learn a little more about the French culture and learn to speak French a little better. It goes well, but... It's a big chance."

What do they hope to get out of this?

Joachim:
Det er en enestående chance. Det er spændende. Det betyder også noget for det danske forsvar, den invitation, der - via mig - er kommet til forsvaret,
- Det er netop en udfordring at bygge ovenpå alt dét, jeg foreløbigt har nået rent militært, men også det, vi alle sammen får oplevet at bo i Frankrig.

"It's a unique chance. It's exiting. It also means something for the Danish defense, the invitation that - through me - has been extended to the defense.
It's a challenge in building on top of what I have accomplished so far militarily, but also that we all will experience living in France."

It's all backed by QMII. (Of course it is! Or they wouldn't go.)
Joachim:
»Dronningen har været meget interesseret i det også og bakket positivt op om det.«
"The Queen has been very interested and also backed up in a positive manner."

Pretty much the same from BT: https://www.bt.dk/royale/prins-joach...vi-fra-danmark

Looks like the family had fun at the Lego movie today. Are Joachim and Marie friends with the Lego family or are they more Frederik and Mary's friends? (Although the fact they saw the film was probably purely a coincidence.)

Both Frederik and Joachim are friends with several of the Kristiansen family, who are behind Lego.

Basically the LEGO Family owns Joachim and Marie. They made Joachim a millionaire and of course they didn't do it for nothing. That's why the royal family (and not just the Schackenborg part) regularly turns up at LEGO events.

In all fairness I think it's just as much the other way around.
Lego is a major brand and export and by keeping the original park and HQ in DK, they employ thousands of people in central Jutland.
It would be very much expected of the DRF to help promote Lego.

In return, yes, the Kristiansen family, lend a helping hand.
We can discuss whether that is a good thing or not.
We can also discuss whether it was a good idea Joachim was made to take over a neglected place like Schackenborg. QMII and PH were probably a bit naive.

Thank you for answering Muhler. I must admit I didn't realise Lego was a Danish brand until I started following the DRF!

Not that many do actually.
And the very discreet Kristiansen family probably don't mind that they are virtually unknown, certainly outside DK and if I met one of them on street I wouldn't recognize any of them.
They and the Danfoss and Grundfoss families as well as other very wealthy DK business families, with whom the DRF are associated, tend to live very much under the radar.

Hmm, that sounds as if they seriously consider staying much longer than the announced year. They don't want to reveal that yet, which is why apparently answers like 'not decided' are given. If it was really a one year deal they could confidently state that they look forward to this great opportunity for Joachim to spend one year in 'military school' while the children enjoy getting to know their 'French side' a bit better.

Moreover, Joachim cannot answer the question what he hopes to get out of it? 'Building on top of what I already know' isn't a very precise answer. So, why take on this year of training? Seems like moving to France is the main reason...

Right now J&M are attending a celebratory service in Copenhagen Cathedral on the occasion of the 800th anniversary of Dannebrog.

UPDATE:

And here we have our Marie inside a hat: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...er-trods-uvejr

Heavy rain and thunder has passed through DK today, forcing many outdoor events to be cancelled or postponed. Including an outdoor concert M&F are to attend later.
In this case however, Joachim did manage to present six new colours for various organizations.
- But people standing out in the open with a flagpole, with a metal-point of various sorts, is not recommended during thunder and lightning, but they were lucky, it only rained.

Oh, and the acting PM gave a speech.
