Haven't there also been rumors about A having been unfaithful?

When a marriage is failing, it is easy to make statements and suppositions of that nature about both parties....

Alexandra and Joachim have had the good taste to stay mute about this aspect of things, unlike Charles and Diana, who were so public and sloppy about it.

indeed, i don't believe in infidelity. it's mature to realise that a marriage doesn't work as it had in the past and that people change and i believe this is the reason why joachim was probably with marie when alexandra was living with martin, while officially they were still married. people need to understand that it is not their obligation to inform us of such a delicate situation (with kids involved) as SOON as it happens. it's normal they wanted to wait a bit and adjust to their new lives before they officially announce a rupture.

IMO this is all under water under the bridge and really has nothing to do with Joachim and Marie's current events.

Alexandra and Joachim were married. For whatever reason it didn't work out. They divorced. They are both married to other people, appear to be happy with the new spouses and co parent their children together. What more can anyone ask?

Due to the nature of birth (Frederik, Christian and Isabella), Joachim's role in the Danish Royal Family will get smaller and smaller as time moves on. Hopefully he (and Marie) will continue to support the Queen, Frederik (long may he reign) and if necessary Christian with the royal duties. That's all one can ask.

It is definitely water under the bridge, but as time goes by, more details regarding who actually wanted the divorce is emerging. That was inevitable. One can't hide the truth forever.

The most important part of this very public situation, due to the royal status, is that all seems to be working out in J and Alexandra's new lives and that the two children of that marriage seem to have continuity, stabiity, and happiness in their lives, no matter whether they are in Schackenborg or Copenhagen. That the four closest adults to them all get along is also of major importance. That way, the boys aren't put in the position of having to take sides, which is so often the case in divorces.
