I've read that according to a danish journalist, who writes often about the royal house, the cause of the divorce is his alcoholism.

OMG I canīt really believe this! Iīve thought the tabloids, which have published that, just wanted a story. IMO they didnīt look unhappy together and there children didnīt seem as if they would have suffered from a marriage-drama!

There have certainly been mutterings in the press, but to me it came as a shock when my friend got a phone call as we were walking home from school.

Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra seems to always have had diverging interests, but they have also seemed to work well together.

I hope everything will work out okay for Felix and Nikolai.

According to bt.dk this will be the first divorce in the Danish royal family in 165 years.

I think they're living in a house on Joachim's property of Schackenborg. Which is his private property, and no imposition on the Danish people. I'm quite sure that Alexandra's parents manage to support themselves, and are not a burden on the Danish people, nor the royal family.

They have lived there for some time now. Its not because of the divorce or anything. I think they moved to Denmark because Richard Manley was ill and wanted to be closer to his daughter.
And i dont see a problem with them living on Shackenborg, its a private estate isnīt it?

haha, you beat me by seconds norweiganne :)

Danish prince to divorce

16sep04

Prince Joachim, Queen Margrethe's second son, will seek a divorce from his Hong Kong-born wife, Princess Alexandra, Danish public radio said today.

<SPAN class=bodytext>The palace declined to comment on the report, saying a news conference was scheduled later today.


Joachim is the younger brother to the heir to Denmark's throne, Crown Prince Frederik, who in May married Tasmanian-born Crown Princess Mary.

Joachim and Alexandra's divorce would be the first in modern times in Europe's oldest ruling monarchy, which traces its line back to the Viking king Gorm the Old, who died in 958.

For several months, Danish media have carried reports and rumours that the couple had been leading separate lives.

I wonder how this will go on. Will Alexandra really stay at Amalienborg after the divorce. And what is about big festivities (e.g. the baptism of Frederikīs first born). Will they appear together? Will she appear or will she "just" go on with her charities. Yes, maybe they manage it to become really good friends (like prince Andrew and Fergie...but in the opposite to Alexandra, Fergieīs problem was rather the lack of acceptance at the Royal court), but how many couples do? I hope they will find a solution for their children. But if I would be princess Alexandra I wouldnīt want to live in a Royal building and would seek for a little independece, even though it would be a shame for us (the Royal watchers), who love it to watch her as "princess".

kittencrews 09-16-2004 09:23 AM

OMGosh, I just read that on HelloMagazine.com!!! This is a total shock!!

Martine 09-16-2004 09:35 AM

wow what a shock :( :( :( i'm really sad by this news, i really had no idea that they had problems...

But i hope they can put their problems aside and make sure that their kids don't suffer from the divorce

HMQueenElizabethII 09-16-2004 09:42 AM

Yes it is really a big shock!I'm not really interested in Danish Royals but i feel sad for the couple and especially for their children.they shouldn't have that,it shouldn't happen to them.They are small and lovely,they can enjoy happy childhood. I'm really sad

lucys 09-16-2004 09:42 AM

How sad. Do you think there will be more pressure on Mary now to get pregnant?

Posters from Denmark, how are people in Denmark reacting? I understand Princess Alexandra is very well liked.

norwegianne 09-16-2004 09:49 AM

My Danish friend, who I was with when I heard the news, didn't believe it. He thought his friend, from whom he got the news via phone, was joking. He was still in denial about the whole thing, but was going home to check a credible news-source as quick as possible.

Ennyllorac 09-16-2004 09:57 AM

I don't know what planet I have been living on because I hadn't read anything about the rumors!

karla64 09-16-2004 10:00 AM

I thought the same thing when I heard the news. It's just a little too coincidental that they're separating right after Frederick's marriage. It's very sad, especially for their sons. I hope they can manage to stay friends, like Prince Andrew and Fergie, if only for the sake of their children.

Dennism 09-16-2004 10:16 AM

I canīt believe this. It is unbelievable in a way. They looked so happy though.

H.M. Margrethe 09-16-2004 10:18 AM

I think that it is so sad that they are going to have a divorce.
Sad for ther sons but most sad for them self.
I hope and pray that they still can be frindes for them self and for ther children.
I am just happy to know that Alexandra is still loved by the Royal family and that she are abel to say her in Denmark with her parents.
As my teatcher said : "They are only human like us." :( :( :( :confused: :confused: :confused:
