On Tuesday, Prince Joachim made his way past Fredensborg Store Kro when he visited Fredensborg Rotary Club. In front of a lot of attendants he told about his working life in the Armed Forces.

There is of course a perfectly rational explanation.

No army officer would ever, as never ever, bury his hands in his pockets.
Nor would a gentleman ever be seen in public with his hands in his pocket - it's... impossible.
As we all know Joachim is an army officer and a perfect gentleman.

This is really the result of a collaboration between our Marie and Frederik.
The Rotary Club took contact to Marie when they learned that she and Joachim were to live in France for a while. Members of the Rotary Club expressed consternation and deep distress that Joachim for the next year or so would not have time to visit the club and by his mere presence set a standard for correct attire and behavior thus ensuring the club maintained its aloof standard. So they asked Marie to help, perhaps a portrait of Joachim, would comfort the other members?

Marie did some thinking and decided to ask her brother in law, Frederik. He's portrayed all the time, so he must know an artist who could portray Joachim.
Indeed he did.
Frederik brought along some photos of Joachim in his dress uniform. The artist then asked Frederik: "How should he pose?" Frederik replied: Why, just standing there looking natural, will do. - Like this."
Frederik then demonstrated to the artist how he looks when he is natural - with both hand glued to his pockets...
No problem, so the artist went to work.

And this wax-figure of Joachim was the result.
You have to admit it's very life-like! If it wasn't for the hands in the pockets you would be forgiven for thinking this really is Joachim!

In the second photo we see the real breathing Joachim. Without his hands in his pockets.
