Translation of quotes.
First from DR.dk:
"The (physical) shape is fine.
But I have to say that there are still things I work on... and that's how it will be for a long time yet.
It's after all not just me and my physical well being that was hit. My wife (informal word), my children and the nearest family - we have all been affected by this. I was hit physically, but they were on the front row. That's why the family is also a part of this healing and we thank out Creator for every single day. Simply."
Q: Has the priorities changes as a result of this?
"We are after all together here in our little life in Paris, which with Corona on top of that has become even less physical - and we enjoy to be able to be together. We enjoy every moment we have. And it's right down in the light detail like helping the children with the homework. Just that, being together..."
Q: So comfort and presence matters even more?
About France being in lockdown:
"It really is weird times.
There are restrictions on movement, there is curfew, we have to have a permit if you move more than one kilometer away from the home.
In a way that's not what you connect with neither France, Paris, let alone the day to day life we have all been born and grown up in. But we all have to contribute in order to be a part of the solution and not opposite directions.
Of course I adhere to the demand about wearing a mask. We owe that to each other, but you also owe that to yourself. It's too stupid to walk around thinking you can't get Corona. All can get it. Some can be hit very severely, some are fortunate, but there is no reason not to step carefully. This is serious."
Does the terrorism affect the family?
"It sure does. We are all aware of it. You become that, the moment you turn on the French media. It's no joking matter here. It's a threat, and where the threat strikes that is not something we should bet on. It's serious, no matter where in France you are, but in particular in the capital.
For that reason alone, there is a bit of a cloud hanging above everybody here in France."
The day to day life in Paris:
"Keep in mind that I'm half French and down here I can also cultivate the French side of my personality and blend into the French day to day life when I wish to.
In the same we can within the four walls of the home be Danish, we can be French, we can Danish-French, we can mix it just as much as we darn well please.
And as for the work at the embassy and that about being stationed in Paris, then Princes Marie and I are proud to be those, who after my father, keep the connection between Denmark and France close."
Returning home or not?
"I have simply decided to take things quiet and easy. Just stepping into a full time job for the Defense abroad is a major change, it's a whole new world to me.
The job as defense attache is for three years at a time, with possibility for an extension of up to one additional year, but I will not look further into the future - that would simply be unmanageable for me.
We enjoy living in the present - with the trouble that sometimes entails. We always look forward, because there will always be something exiting beyond the next hill."

About the public sympathy he got when he fell ill:
"It was incredibly warming and it was also something we all felt. So the sympathy we all got, that really has gone straight to the heart."
