Lovely photos! A wonderful bonding day for the three brothers. Joachim has 3 handsome sons, Nikolai seems to have grown up so quickly.

Our Marie celebrated her 40th birthday Saturday with a big party at Villa Joachim.
Frederik was there as well, wearing - well, I'm not quite sure what he is wearing but it looks comfortable.

That's J&M current home. It hasn't got an official name and Emiliekildevej may be something of a mouthful for most, so why not Villa Joachim?

Looking very sexy I must say.
Nice seeing him attend with his cousin Gustaf and Carinna.
Marie's birthday was in February right? Celebrate all year why not lol.

Perfect weather for a garden party this weekend. The temperature hasn't dropped below 14 degrees C at night = 57 F.

The evening-dew doesn't even fall before around midnight these days. So it's summer big-time right now!
With the sky being almost bright as day until 23.00.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #23, 2016.
Written by Henrik Salling.

As you may remember our Marie wanted to celebrate her 40th birthday in the summer and that's what she did. And since Joachim's birthday was this Tuesday I guess he was celebrated as well.
Anyway, the weather was fantastic Saturday at Villa Joachim on Emiliekildevej when a little more than 100 guests arrived.
The house is surrounded by high hedges and shielded by neighbors so hardly saw anything apart from the guests arriving.
In fact a few of the guests arrived early, prior to 16.00 and had to wait a little while for the gate to be opened, but then they started to trickle in.

The theme of the party was Nikki Beach Style - which stems from Saint-Tropez and Ibaza and it's defined by wearing white clothes and hanging around in white lounge furnitures in white cabanas (have no idea what cabanas is). Frederik, judging from the photos, appears to be among the few who nailed the style - or perhaps he was just, I'm not sure...

The dance troupe Pivot had been hired to provide entertainment and that was also according to the theme. Mette Louise Just Kryger from Pivot explains: "Princess Marie herself had wished for the party in our entertainment being in best Nikki Beach Style. Princess Marie would like for our show to kick-start the party and that's why our dancing costumes were a little cheeky/saucy/kinky/naughty".
When the dance show ended confetti was spread all over the garden.

The dinner and speeches were done by 19.30 and that's when the dancing started.
However, even before that a grumpy neighbor ringed on the gate-phone and requested the music being turned down.

As you know Mary was in Fredericia 200 km away, with the Home Guard, so she wasn't with Frederik. But Gustav and Carina from Berleburg went with him.
So was Countess Alexandra and hordes of the Wedell-Wedellsborg clan.
The very close friends of J&M, the Siesbye's and Scherfig's were there as well.
As well as Marie's hairdresser and stylist, Dennis Knudsen.
(Dennis Knudsen has closed his hairdresser salon but he will still take care of Marie's hair and presumably Alexandra's as well, since he in an article recently said he chosen her and cut the connection to Martin Jørgensen - without going into too many details).

Don't know when the party ended, but as the temperature that night didn't go below 16 C (60 F), they could easily have slept outside, as long as they remained under cover. - Something the home guardsmen at Fredericia were no doubt grateful for!

Anyway, see for yourselves here: https://app.box.com/s/irwnh50feht30b4lfa7tonyhg53kot8m

-----------------

Yes, it was a very tired Prince who gave an interview there, while trying to stay awake.

Joachim explains later in the video that his son fell unconscious when they came home.

The mood appears to have been very merry at the recent party! Naboerne fik nok af prinsesse Maries 40 år fødselsdagsfest: Politiet kom på uventet besøg

The party started at 17.00 and shortly after the music was turned on, high.
Se & Hør quote a woman who was walking her dog for saying: "I'll soon/on the verge/consider call the police. There is such a terrible noise in the whole area".

Another neighbor went to the gate-phone (is that what you call it in English?) to ask for the music to be turned down. - In vain.

Then around 00.40 a patrol car from the police turned up and parked a few meters from the gate.

The police confirms that there were two complaints about the noise. "We then ascertained that there was no music when the patrol-car arrived".

And indeed shortly before the police arrived, the music had been turned down and a few minutes after the police drove off again, the first guests started to leave.

- The general rules here in DK is that, within reason, it's okay to play loud music during weekends until 22-23 and then turn the music off. Of course provided that it doesn't happen every weekend.
But after midnight, then you can expect the police to drop by and in more serious cases they simple seize the stereo.
So most people who are having a party usually drop a note to the neighbors that on this and this day, we will be holding a party and sorry for any inconveniences. That usually does it. - Give and take, within reason.
I'd say ringing the doorbell around 18.00 is perhaps a little too sensitive, while keep playing loud outside past 23.00 is a sure way to really annoy your neighbors!

Why not? That's even more stylish and the impression I have of mademoiselle Athena is that she rules!

And as on queue here is a BT article focusing in particular on Joachim's workload, or lack of it as it is claimed in the article. Så få dage arbejder han: Joachims driverliv

BT has calculated the number of workdays for the individual members of the DRF for the first six months of 2016, whether an event has lasted a few hours or it was a full day event.
Being Regent or Rigsforstander has not been counted in. - Nor has time at the office.
I.e. only events where they have been seen out and about is counted.

Joachim is getting some heat.

But I think I'll leave the details to someone else, lest someone should think I'm biased.

So the CP who has only done 55 duties is OK because he did a photo call But his brother who on top of duties, works a part time job in defense, gets flack for only doing 30 It would be like calling Edward lazy because he doesn't carry out as much as Charles.

As for the defense 'he has only done 2 engagements' These reporters do realize this is not a ceremonial position where he is going to be out in the public eye everytime he works right??? Just because he doesn't live in the capital doesn't mean he doesn't work.

The reality though, beyond the defense work, any 'planning' isn't taken into account because how can it? They don't punch a time clock. There is no evidence how much planning any royal does for an event beforehand, and what is done by staff. At least an actual job, like defense or flying, there is a concrete set.
