Lovely Athena turns 8 today! And the Palace has shared some nice new photos taken by Princess Marie:

Thanks, Iceflower.

Our Marie's mother can't be in any doubt that Athena is her granddaughter! The resemblance is clear.

And here's another photo of of mademoiselle Athena, albeit not recent: https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...lsdagdwehw.jpg

Athena is so cute! I can't believe she's 8 already. I like how the dog was included in the photos too.

Yes, IIRC our Marie's Apple died not that long ago, and they have a new one.

Nikolai's girlfriend, Benedikte Thoustrup, has moved into her own apartment at Store Kongensgade (downtown Copenhagen) purchased by her parents for almost one million Euro.
The large apartment is 128 square meters.

According to the Public Register, she moved in there in mid January.

In contrast Nikolai moved into his own apartment, also located in a desired part of Copenhagen. His "mere" 70 square meter apartment cost 4.1 million DKK.

Nikolai has Benedikte have just returned from a skiing holiday together in the French Alps. At Couchevel.

- I think it's safe to say that both apartments are an investment.

At a fashion event in Copenhagen yesterday Alexandra answered a few questions about Nikolai's move into his appartment:

- Perhaps she has her future daughter-in-law, Benedikte, in mind (if and when Nikolai ever pops the question) in regards to Nikolai buying cupboards and closets large enough.
As any seasoned husband knows when you buy a new wardrobe: One quarter is for the husband, the rest for the wife. That's a law of nature and there is nothing you can do about it.

That's something men, especially young men, simply can't fathom. (Not least because most of Nikolai's clothes are destined to be lying around on the floor or slung over tables and chairs anyway. )
Nikolai has no doubt looked at a closet like this and thought: There is oceans of room for all my clothes!

And Alexandra has immediately responded: No, there isn't! And certainly not with a nesting girlfriend around.

Floodrobe? That's new to me.

Mmnaahh. - I'm saying Nikolai is an unmarried young man.
A man like that can have a dead cow in his bathtub without noticing it! Another law of nature.

Not only that but a way to legally transfer money to your kids. As soon as the kids earn their own money, they can buy the apartment from their parents for an agreed sum which is far below what the apartment had cost or is worth at that time. So the parents make a loss from selling the apartment and the kids can use their payments to lower their taxes. Or so I read as a reason why rich people in Denmark buy apartments for their kids and sell them to them later on.

Nikolai, like his fellow students at Copenhagen Business School, has been sent home.
But due to the travel restrictions and limits on public gatherings, he can't work as a catwalk model either.

Understandable. It's best everyone keeps safe during the pandemic.

Thanks, Eya.

And here they are in high-res: http://kongehuset.dk/sites/default/f..._billede_2.jpg
http://kongehuset.dk/sites/default/f..._billede_1.jpg

The outdoor-pic was taken in the town of Tønder, located three km from Scackenborg.
Both were taken Saturday.

Mademoiselle Athena shows promise.
Children are often the best photographers, they don't think, they just snap away.

Yes, and the picture of the family probably around the same time. It even looks like our Marie is holding a phone/camera.

- And as always when something interesting is going on, dad is relegated to holding the dog. Hmm, wonder why I find that familiar?

With the changes made to the Swedish royal house last year (birthday photographs of Prince Carl Philip's and Princess Madeleine's children are no longer published by the Swedish court, although their parents publish them on their personal social media), I think the Danish royal house is the only remaining European monarchy which treats children of a monarch's younger child as essentially equal to the children of a future monarch. It will be interesting to see whether that remains the case, given that Prince Joachim's children appear to be destined for more private careers than Princess Elisabeth.
