I didn't realise that Nikolai was fifteen years old already, time flies! He is indeed going to be handsome once he gets older, as is his brother Felix. It's also nice to see Felix included in the photos.

Danish Ekstrabladet wrote on Tuesday that Nikolai has Facebook-profile as Nikolai Jørgensen. They have a photo of his account.

Ekstra Bladet claim that Nikolai is using Jørgensen because he has "spent more time with Martin Jørgensen than with his own father" – which is typical EB ridiculousness. Obviously he used Jørgensen to avoid getting noticed by tabloids like EB etc.

Apparently, one of his friends commented on one of his pictures that he's "Prinsen af næwer" – the Prince of Næver. Næver is a nickname for Næstved, the city in which Herlufsholm is placed

IMO, using Jørgensen creates more interest for the tabloids than if Nikolai were to use something more common (ie. the Danish equivalent of Smith or Brown). It gives them a platform on a silver platter to invent stories about the family dynamic/relationships.

I also find it disrespectful to use Jørgensen as a last name in this way. It gives the wrong impression, especially when there could have been a multitude of other options to use.

Jørgensen is a common name. I reckon there's quite a few Nikolai Jørgensens in Denmark, actually (I just checked my own Facebook, and I happen to know two myself).

To be honest, I don't think it would matter which name the royals use to disguise themselves. Unless they leave their profile picture blank, use a stereotypical name and set everything to be entirely private, the press will probably find out in the end – Frederik's Jens Peter Hansen didn't work out either. Granted, Jørgensen is attached to the family through Martin, but Nikolai is fifteen, perhaps he doesn't think down those lanes. I see Nikolai using Jørgensen as a loving gesture to Martin, with whom he and Felix obviously have a great relationship, as well as a teenager's somewhat naive way of trying not to get noticed.

The press will always find the social media pages of royals and celebrities, regardless of how private the settings are.

Even with Jørgensen being a common surname, a different one would have been a better choice IMO. Granted, like you said, Nikolai probably didn't think of any of the potential issues which the press may conjure up stemming from this, which as a teenager is to be expected.

There are approx. 89.000 named Jørgensen in Denmark, so it's not an uncommon name. The problem in this case is the context, as you mention! I only saw the headline on the news stand in the super market () and my immediate reaction was b.s., if you pardon the expression. But then again the story was printed in our worst gossip rag, which- for the record - has a pending News- of- the- World- like-phone-hacking case.

I didn't realise that it was Athena's birthday today. She's grown up so quickly! I loved the newest photos of her, she seems to be a happy little girl. I've always thought the children in the DRF seem to be very happy and "normal" children though, which is lovely to see. Despite the fact that they are royal, I've always gotten the impression that their parents are trying to make them have as normal a childhood as possible.

Athena is also very sweet and has always reminded me of the little girl who plays Marigold in Downton.

She has an interesting demeanor in the one where she looks into the camera. I bet she will be one intelligent young Lady.

Athena is a very cute little girl! I would love a baby sister for her but think Joachim and Marie are done.

Such great pictures. Steen Brogaard is one of my favourite photographers. Looks like little Athena is going to be the image of her maternal grandmother when she grows up – I really think her resemblance to Françoise Grassiot is striking, especially around the eyes and whenever she smiles
