I suppose Joachim has to stay in France for Covid .
I very much doubt they were not invited. I'm pretty sure Alexandra's mum lives in Denmark. Not unlikely that they've simply been celebrating Easter in Copenhagen with their other grandmother and Alexandra – an added benefit of that is that they'd be close to their friends on the days they aren't having Easter lunch with the family

It would be nice to see how involved Nikolai and Felix are in this Foundation. I dont think we have seen them participate or a photo or two. They are certainly old enough.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing.

Surely it wouldn't take up too many hours of their lives each year.
It is after all in their name.
So at least Nikolai could show up.

Indeed.

The last examination was Danish and he got 12 = top marks.

That's a good day for his proud parents.

Glasses suit Alexandra, methinks.

Major congratulations to Felix! I wonder if we'll get a picture of him running after the "studentervogn" on Friday – a tradition for students finishing off their final exam with a 12.

Will the graduations in Denmark go on as usual or are there still restrictions?

Pretty sure they're limiting the actual graduation ceremonies to only include a handful of classes at a time but other than that, I think most restrictions that would've affected the usual celebrations have been lifted.

Let's have a look at what Felix said:

Joachim had returned from France to put the cap on the head of Felix. - It's tradition that a parent/grandparent or another who is important to the student puts the graduation cap on the head of the student.
It's also tradition that at least the parents and siblings are present - and often grandparents and sweethearts as well.

"It's unfortunately only for a short while. But just the fact that he is here, that is of course nice. My father put the cap on my head. My mother did it with Nikolai. It was a big moment."
The family was heading for a lunch together.

The final examination ended with top marks but Felix is not yet certain about his average.
"I haven't quite worked that out yet. But it sure isn't low."

Q: Are you actually the braniac of the family?

"Mm-yeah."

In the autumn Felix will start in the military.

One year in the town of Slagelse and the second year at a barracks of your own choice. - The (reserve) officers training in the army.

"It's been a big tradition in the family. Now my brother has tried it, so now I thought I'd try it as well."

Felix don't expect to opt out like Nikolai:
"I have been very determined to do it for some time."

After the two years in the army he may opt for Copenhagen Business School. But that is not yet for certain.
He will miss his high school as he met many new friends there, but Corona had an effect in the sense that he was schooled online for a year and a half. (Out of three years.)

It's interesting because based on this picture the court released for Nikolai's graduation and its caption, I've always thought that Joachim put the hate on Nikolai's head but now it turns out it was Alexandra. I wonder why they didn't just write that. But very neat that Joachim and Alexandra got to do it with a son each.

ETA (x2): After listening to BT's clip, I actually think Felix says that Joachim also did it with Nikolai which makes the DRF photo and captions make sense again. That, in return, means that Alexandra haven't gotten to do it but I suppose Joachim is able to reach better

On another note, Felix has always looked a lot like Joachim but going off of today's videos, I also think he sounds a lot like him. Truly his father's son!

ETA: He also says he'd been hoping for history in his last exam but got Danish – and still got top grades. He might've been hesitant to call himself the brainiac of the family but it sounds like he's got that title locked in.

I guess the press office got a few photos and wrote the captions based on that. - Without being told the details.

Must happen more often than we think.

ADDED:
Nikolai ain't stupid, that's for sure. But for whatever reason I have always seen Felix as - what we in DK jockingly refer to - being more practical minded than his older brother. Only shows how wrong you can be.

Felix may very well be "the brainiac" and it sounds like he did very well on his exams. But a more typical response from a brainiac is "I've always enjoyed school/learning." To me, it sounds like he might just be making a joke he can tease Nikolai about for the next six months. Besides, somehow I thought bragging about your academics is frowned upon in DK?

I don't know how well it comes across to non-Danish speakers but he was very clearly not bragging about anything. When asked if he was the brainiac of the family, his answer was closer to "eh" than "yes" and he clearly looked a bit uneasy answering. He also looked slightly uncomfortable when a journalist asked Nikolai how he felt about Felix "beating" his final grade. He generally seemed very humble and just happy – also in terms of getting top grades.

Prince Felix (with his new haircut), had to ride a horse-drawn carriage with his class today.
Both Prince Joachim, Countess Alexandra and Prince Nikolai were present when Prince Felix and his class today at 12 after graduation at Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium had to drive a horse-drawn carriage.
