Prins Joachim blev prikket | BILLED-BLADET

As patron for the Asthma and Allergy Association Joachim today subjected himself to an allergy test and the result was hardly a surprise.
He reacted to birch.

In fact he's allergic to grass and birch.

Surprisingly that wasn't a big problem when he was a farmer at Schackenborg. There are no birch woods west of Schackenborg and the wind in that part of DK, well all of DK in fact, is predominantly coming from the west.

This is very much Joachim's domain - suits and dinner jackets and receptions and small talk - lots of small talk!
In contrast to Frederik who in such a situation would prefer to interact with ordinary people.

- Good, then we've got both areas covered.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #35, 2016.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Dressed in their finest and with our Marie wearing a two-finger ring (*) they were the hosts for the gala dinner for Copenhagen Goodwill Ambassadors at Amalienborg.
The 80 ambassadors from 30 countries can now celebrate their 20th anniversary. Hence the dinner.
The whole idea is to promote Copenhagen (especially as a tourist destination) abroad.
Joachim is patron for the ambassadors.

Aparts from the ambassadors a number of current and former dignitaries from Copenhagen also attended. So did the PM who arrived later in the evening.

(*) Yes, you'll see a close-up of the ring in the scans tomorrow.

Thanks, Polyesco & Iceflower

Here is an article with photo from BB: Prins Joachim ærede Danmarks veteraner | BILLED-BLADET

Joachim is wearing the full dress uniform a of colonel in the army. And he is wearing the tent-hat, because he started in Dronningens Liveregiment, which was a semi-guards regiment, attached to a particular royal. In this case the queen-consort. Translated the regiment can be called The Queen's Own Regiment.
It was soldiers from this regiment who guarded Gråsten, when Queen Ingrid was in residence, rather than from the Royal Lifeguard.

The regiment has now been amalgamated into Jutland Dragoon Regiment.
So by trade Joachim was originally a grenadier, I.e. an infantryman from a mechanized regiment, in support of an armored regiment.

Thanks, Polyesco & Iceflower.

Jim Lyngvild is well known here in DK, for a number of things. He is also a super-royalist.
However he is also getting pretty well-known in China as well.
He is IRRC judge in a fashion-talent show, with I don't know how many tens of millions of viewers.
And he is launching his homemade beer-product to China as well. That's why he got the award.
In this context the photo of Jim Lyngvild getting an award by a real life Prince, is worth gold to him.

Jim Lyngvild is also one of the leading members of the Asa-faith. I.e. he believes in the old Nordic gods.

Thanks, iceflower

A nice touch. And a little surprise for the press and the public, but not the hosts, they were prepared.
So when dad listened to boring speeches, bette Henrik and mademoiselle Athena was taken for a tour of the center.
The center focusing on fish and what else live and swim in DK fjords and belts.
But as you can tell, dad had to rescue Athena's jacket from the water, because she was eager after padding a fish.

Such socks haven't reached us who live this far out in Jutland, but I believe striped socks are now fashionable in the towns?

Apart from that, it's nice to see Joachim's children enjoying themselves. Pity Vincent wasn't there, he would have yelled at the fish...

A very delightful video from BB, with I think, mademoiselle Athena's first interview: VIDEO: Prinsesse Athena og prins Henrik fortæller om sjov dag med far | BILLED-BLADET

First Joachim talks about them skipping school, because it is after all not every day, his children get to pad fish and whales (albeit small ones) so this might be educational.

Then at the middle of the video Athena is asked what she think was the most funny thing of the day and she replies: "To eh play... No. Eh. Being in Tour Land (under the water)".

What could be seen down there?
A: "Animals".

Bette Henrik however preferred meeting and padding the guinea pig Freya.
H: "I liked to touch it. And feed it. That was really funny".

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #12, 2017.
Written by Marianne Singer.

While our Marie was in Greenland, Joachim brought his two youngest children with him to the research and experience center Fjord & Belt in the town of Kerteminde on the island of Funen.
As the name suggest, the center perform research but also provide information about the environment in, on and below the Danish fjords and straits. That includes a tunnel that is submerged.
Even though the organizers knew Joachim would bring Athena and Henrik with him, it was a delightful surprise for the press and general public.

- Judging from the article and video above, we have learned that mademoiselle Athena has grown into a confident and talkative little lady.

While the adults held speeches and stuff, the children were led by a biologist to the "touch-basin", where they could touch seals, crabs and whatever is floating and swimming around in the water. That was a pretty cool experience.
When the children returned it was time to cut the ribbon. That task was left for Henrik to carry out, under instructions from dad: "Hands out of the pockets, thank you. Then you just cut".
Then it was dad's turn to get a guided tour of the center and here bette Henrik asked a lot of questions, which dad answered patiently. Henrik thought it was "real fun" to feed a guinea pig, while Athena was fascinated by the seals swimming outside the windows. Both children got the opportunity to feed fish to the resident guinea pig named Freja. Here dad prudently held on to his eager daughter's coat.
But there was also an interactive section where the children put on glasses to see the seabed in 3D as well as the changing seasons under the sea by turning a wheel.
The visit lasted for 2½ hours.

Afterwards Joachim told that he had taken his son out of school for the day: "On the occasion it was obvious to bring the kids along, so that they also could get an experience. It might be that a single school-day has been sacrificed, but I think there is far more learning in this, than just learning to put letters and figures together".

You mean the hands in the pockets?

There is of course a perfectly rational explanation.
You see prior to attending the event Joachim took a nap on the couch. And being a perfect gentleman Joachim can only nap in one position, lying on his back, with straight legs and his hands folded on his belly.

That's where mademoiselle Athena comes in. Inspired by her kusine (female cousin) Josephine, she decided to apply green nail-polish on her dad's fingernails. In the middle of the process Joachim woke up, but as a doting father it's of course impossible for him to admonish his daughter.
And since miss Athena expressed delight with the result of her work, Joachim of course could not remove the nail polish. As a perfect gentleman Joachim will consider any wish from any lady, even a mischievous daughter, a command. And as Athene believed dad should wear green nails on the job, that's what he did...

In the car he didn't have time to remove the green polish anyway, so Joachim opted to bend the rules a bit and park his hands in his pockets.
Had people spotted the green nails, they would have looked disapprovingly at him. - A perfectly attired gentleman does not wear shades of nail-polish that conflicts with his shirt!

- It's true, I have it from sources...

Thanks, Iceflower
