Is P. Henrik not feeling well, or is just a timely thing to do now that he's over 75?

The article just said that he decided to step away from the position. It didn't mention his reasons. The news came from an official press release issued by the DRF. That press release also didn't state any particular reason. It very well could be due to Prince Henrik's age. This is a good job for Joachim to have, IMO. He can perform a lot of the duties from Schackenborg, and it is a great way for him to take on more responsibility. When Frederik becomes king, the two brothers will be able to work together with administering and granting the orders.

Does anyone know why Nicolae Ceauşescu has been given the order? Wasn't he the dictator of Romania? I can imagine why he had to give it back again though :-)

Protocol!
Without knowing all the "small print", it is standard procedure for state visits. Heads of state normally exchange the finest orders of their respective countries. I vaguely remember that the issue was publicly debated at the time of Ceausecu's visit, but as long as there are diplomatic relations with a country, I don't think it's possible to withhold an order just because you disagree with his/her politics!

Here's a link to a website (in English) that talks about The Houting Project:
LIFE Houting-project - Background & objectives

Houting are a type of white fish that have had their habitats destroyed. This group seeks to restore the environments of the houting, specifically in four rivers in southwestern Denmark. Joachim participated in an event in Tonder, the city where he and Marie live for most of the year.

Joaquim is totally engaged in talking with this gentleman. What a pity he's clipped his hair so short - it looked quite continental for a time.

What does continental mean in that context?

A more southern European style, a hairstyle that wasn't so short, but had more movement. He wore it this way on his trip to Russia with Marie, and also recently, through late summer, but cut it short again after opening of parliament.

I think it looks better that way, less severe.

Prince Joachim looks like he is in his element hunting. I like him much better in casual atttire (or in military uniform) than dressier things.

I think he looks every inch a prince in tails with his elephant sash and the like, as for gala occasions. He really looks elegant then.

Thank you for the photos. I have to say looking at Pic 1 I see a resemblance between Joachim and Frederik for the fist time ever.
