On August 5, Prince Joachim, Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix attended the press

Yesterday, August 6, Prince Joachim participated himself, but had two accidents.
As a result of that some spectators got angry and acted disrespectful towards
Joachim (see the galleries). Princes Marie was present as well.

Billed-Bladet - Prins Joachim - mine fødder er for store

Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix takes place this weekend and Joachim is already in competitive mode: "This weekend, I'll recommend people stay behind me".

Ditching his shoes on the square in front of Copenhagen townhall, he crammed his long body into a formula 1 racer, kindly exhibited by Red Bull.
Joachim said afterwards: "My feet are too big and my shoulders too wide. I simply haven't got the dimensions for that car".

There is also a brief video.

Looking at Joachim's smile it's pretty safe to say, he's a true petrolhead.

- With a little luck, we'll see our Marie as well. Perhaps with bette Henrik?

If you think you can handle it, here is a gallery of some serious cute pictures of bette Henrik at the Copenhagen Historical Grand Prix today. - Okay, dad and our Marie are there too: Se billederne: Danmarks nye racer-prins | www.bt.dk

I don't know what bette Henrik has said or done in the second picture, whatever it is it is reducing Joachim and Oscar Siesbye to hysterical laughter.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #32, 2012.
Jeg vil køre race som far - I'll race like dad.
Written by Karina Didriksen.

Our Marie and bette Henrik joined Joachim last weekend, when he took part in the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix, - and came in third.

Wearing a team-shirt, with the names of the sponsors Marie joined Joachim's team in their pit but it was bette Henrik who ran with all the attention. Cars!
Lots of cars! And Henrik had to sit in front of the wheel in as many cars as possible, so he grabbed mom of dad's hand and dragged his parents from car to car.
Marie remarked: "Henrik is very fond of cars. That's difinitely in the genes. He knows all the brands, yes, he's pretty good at that".

Perhaps Henrik will also become a racing driver?
Marie: "Then I'll be so proud of him".
She went down and asked her son: "Will you be driving in races, when you grow up, just like dad? Or will will you drive a bus? - No, he says he want's to drive a racingcar like his dad".
Henrik was shy so only mother could hear his reply.

But right next to the pit stood a bright red double decker bus (*) and here the team could stay when they were not competing. Each time bette Henrik steered straight for the steering wheel and at some point the tunes of a children's song about driving a bus was heard. (**) When he wasn't busy driving the bus, Henrik found time to put his head out the window and greet passers by: "Hi, hi", they included Marie who kissed her son on the cheek.

While our reporter chatted with Joachim about the race a loud: "Hoooonk", was heard. That was bette Henrik who sat behind the wheel in dad's car.
Joachim smiled: "I think we have the beginning of something interesting here. There is a big potential coming up".
However Henrik still has a way to go before becoming a racing driver, as Joachim explained: "I've suggested that he turn the engine on, but he didn't dare do that. That was after all too much".

Atehena was looked after at home.

(*) Double-decker buses are rare in DK, so Henrik may not have seen one before.

(**) Presumably it was adults singing.

Today, August 3, Prince Joachim raced at the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix in Bellahøj in Copenhagen, where he was visited by Princess Marie (although the sub-headline says Maria ) and little Prince Henrik.

Prince Joachim wasn't that lucky today, August 4, he had an accident during the final. Fortunately he wasn't hurt:

Prince Joachim's Cortina looks like a total loss but fortunately he escaped unhurt. His comment: 'Only my pride is hurt'.

another large picture gallery from both days Marie et Joachim de Danemark : Henrik, 4 ans, comme chez lui au Grand Prix

Most of them are lovely pics, but I really don't like that Joachim smokes near Henrik

Thank you for the additional photos, fairy tale.

I also don't like how Joachim is smoking near little Henrik, I'm not a fan of parents smoking near their children (and smoking in general). On another note, I like this photo which iceflower posted of little Henrik covering his ears, it's very cute.

I agree, while i love that they take little Henrik (and i cant wait till they take little Athena one day too), I dont like that he still smokes around his small kids. I remember seeing the pictures of him smoking with little Nikolai on his lap years ago,

Agree about the smoking although there is probably just as much danger from pollution due to car exhausts! Automobile racing is not an undangerous sport; I don't wonder at the tenderness with which our Marie kisses Joachim knowing it might well be the last time. Boys and their toys!

Thanks for the many delightful pictures.

I saw a brief interview online the other day, where Joachim talked about his sport.
Also that he had had a few uh-oh-moments, where he may not have been in severe danger but nevertheless could have been injured. He also said that our Marie so far didn't object to him risking his limbs in this sport, because she hadn't seen it when something went wrong. - Well, she has now...

Bette Henrik was mentioned in a couple of captions as pointing the make of the cars he saw. A possible future petrolhead in the making.

I don't appreciate Joachim smoking near his children either, not least because bette Henrik (like Joachim himself) is suffering from asthma. However in his defence I'd say that it looked to me like bette Henrik went up to his dad and was picked up, while Joachim had a fag in his mouth. So that one can be excused.
Anyway, it would be a god idea to beat his habit, if not for health reasons then for economic reasons. How much is a pack of twenty cigarettes? 30 DKK? That's 5.3 $ or 4 € and the price is not going down!
So if he smoke one pack every two days, that's 977 $ a year. Imagine how many dashboard figures you can get for that.

Another thing worth noting is the affection and public kissing between Joachim and Marie.
The old Joachim married to Alexandra would be very unlikely to do that as a matter of course. The old Joachim was much more correct and aware of his presence in public, something he shared I believe with Alexandra. And perhaps that's one of the reasons for their failed marriage? They were too alike?
The new Joachim, has matured and learned that it won't kill you to show that you love your wife in public.

Still cheap compared to Toronto where a pack of 25 will run you $11 to $12.

Jeez!!

They've talked about raising the vat here in DK to such levels, but haven't so far for fear of the cross border trading going up even more.

Talk is cheap, but action always speaks louder than words! Here in Canada, smoking is not only expensive but socially unacceptable, To make matters even more explicit, the Canadian government pays tobacco farmers to use their fields for other crops. Regarding your comment about the reason for Alexandra and Joachim's divorce, thank you dear Muhler for opening up the possibility to speculate on why anyone would choose to leave the delicious Danish Royal Family! I think myself that Alexandra has no sense of humour and was not able to laugh at Prince Henrik's jokes. You can say what you want about our Marie but she is always entertaining AND she is French! If I were Joachim, I would certainly have more fun with Marie
