"How would I say Raffles in Danish?"
A whole bunch more short Raffles spots are up on YouTube, with different bits of voiceover.
"Asia really fascinates him", says Nikolai.

I don't know. Because I'm not sure what raffle is.

Isn't a raffle a kind of lottery?

Yes, but the hotel name is Raffles, the name of the British dude who founded Singapore. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stamford_Raffles

They are just having fun with the English ability to verb anything, though no, it doesn't make real sense.

Nik does attempt a Danish pronunciation in the second video.

Prince Felix will start an internship at A.P. Møller Mærsk ( container shipping company) which is headquartered in Copenhagen.

Wasn't Joachim working in shipping when he met Alex?

If Felix is the brainiac, I wonder why he doesn't want to go to university.

Maybe it is too late to start a university course now in the middle of the academic year and he will have to apply to start only in the Fall of 2022. I don't know, I'm just guessing here.

That makes most sense to me. He was supposed to be in army training this year but quit rather quickly but most likely not soon enough to start university studies.

I guess his father's contacts got him an 'internship' (normally that is part of some kind of degree program but in this case, it is most likely primarily to keep him busy for the next 6 months and in addition pick up some transferable skills).

Good. That internship will be of great help if he applies for and gain entry at Copenhagen Business School. (Which Nikolai is also attending.) CBS is a business-university, where he can gain his bachelor and master.

He was indeed. IIRC that was also at Mærsk.
CBS is a kind of university, with focus on a business career.

Correct.
It's the same for my daughter. She's having a gap-year now and will apply for whatever field of study she wish to pursue next year, (She's not yet 100 % sure) in order to start in August 2022.

Some quotes from his interview
https://mobile.twitter.com/Heaven_Le...92254663262208

"He is also trying to learn French: "I am not fluent in any way, but I try to speak French when I’m in a restaurant or shop. It’s difficult, right?”."

I think the most fascinating detail from all of this was that Felix apparently could have been a model too. And he has a very different look from his brother!

The Palace has released some lovely birthday photos of Princess Athena.

Athena has turned 10 today and the photos were taken by her mother Princess Marie:

Prince Nikolai has given an interview to B.T. where he talks about studying in Paris, now returning to Denmark and what the future holds.

Hmm, two things springs to mind:

He doesn't really say anything, but I find it interesting that he mentions his attachment to France. He has very strong connections to France, through no less than two families. His dad's and our Marie's families. So career wise his future may well lie in France.
That Alexandra's secretary controlled the interview is no accident either. His words has been checked and weighed and this is as close to an official statement we will get.

I'm not sure what we can put in Benedikte posing with him. Not at Nikolai's level, being a member of the DRF, but not a high ranking, nor a working member.
It may signify that the relationship is very serious indeed, but it may be also be a part of a natural portrait of Nikolai.

It would really be noteworthy had it been one of M&F's children posing with a sweetheart. Especially Christian and Isabella.

I guess I’m curious. For a handsome prince’s girlfriend, Benedikte seems to be mostly left alone by the press, or at least treated respectfully and not hassled overly much. Is it because of his distance from the throne, or would the press not bother at all if it weren’t for Nikolai’s looks and career?

Or is she intruded on and that doesn’t make news?

The members of the Royal family are mostly left alone when they're in private. There's most likely a deal between the press and the court and the media outlets and journalists that broke it would quickly find themselves without any access to the Royal family.
