Unless they have a real calling/desire. And that goes for females. If the male royals are expected to do some military service, the women should as well.
I guess the heir to the Crown is normally expected to have some military experience because, in most monarchies, the King is still the formal supreme commander of the Armed Forces , even though that role is now purely symbolic only .

In the UK, in particular, there has been a pattern of younger sons of the monarch being active military men and even being deployed in actual combat operations in a way the heir himself could not be ( Andrew and Harry are the most recent examples). However, that is not necessarily true in all countries. In the Netherlands, for example, neither Constantijn nor Friso had military training as far as I know.

I wasn't commenting on how monarchies do or do not expect their heirs to serve

I was responding to a poster who thinks that anyone with a title should be required to serve. It was their post I was responding to, questioning Their opinion that any one with a title should be in the military.

Serving in the military isn't the only way to serve one's country IMO. That's what I was saying.

And if monarchies like the UK think it is good that royal heirs serve, then it should be equal. We should see the females in the family be encouraged to serve as well. The military has women in it, if George and Louis are expected to serve, then so should Charlotte.

We're not talking 'heir' anyways as this conversation is about Nikolai and Felix.

I'm not sure I like this Superman-hairstyle. It's a bit too metro-sexual for my taste.
What's that around his right earlobe?

Nikolai set up a page on Instagram with videos of his experience that day. He speaks in English and gives full tittle.

I'm not sure it was Nikolai himself who set up this page. Or he must be used to talking about himself in third person... although other posts are in the first person, so I'm not sure what to make of it

"He speaks in English"
"Can't get over his accent!!"
"Getting pampered as a model-royalty in #diorsummer19 where he opened the show and closed it!'

'My chocolate fix'
'Im here! And ready for #diorsummer19 #princenikolai'

I agree.

Looks more like he contributed with a couple of selfie-vids.
Could it be his agency?

Well, actually Joachim had no choice to ever "allow", or not to, his eldest son´ s ambition to model because in Denmark you are considered as adult when reaching the age of 18 (and Nikolai will be 19 in 2 months time already!). So it was a decision Nikolai has made in his own right and his father had virtually no saying in this.

of course the DM would
I thought Nikolai's short length pants were part of the uniform
https://www.seoghoer.dk/sites/seogho..._nikolai_4.jpg
But the other boys seem to be wearing normal length pants
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/20...0277264499.jpg
Must be a fashion trend for Nikolai

I wont mention Joachim's too large tuxedo

I saw the video indeed it looks as Alexandra said:" don't hug my kid, he is mine" I am sure it is things behind doors we do not know and this action of Alexandra talks for itself

What...?!
I´ve seen many videos about Alexandra meeting Marie and the two of them have always been very kind and friendly towars each other. What you might have seen in this video, I didn´ t see at all!

It is a contratiction when you say "we do not know about the things behind closed door" (that could include which I am pretty sure of, that both women are having a good relationship) and Alexandra´ s "action" would talk for itself...


Alexandra, think of her what you will, never occured to me as a jealous kind of woman. I rather believe she´ s happy her sons are doing well with their father´ s 2nd wife.
