Danish Royal Family is suffering its own Meghan Markle “crisis”

According to royal experts speaking to MailOnline today, the Danish Royal Family is going through its own Meghan Markle “crisis,” and King Charles III will be “watching carefully” as pressure mounts on him to take “decisive action” regarding the futures of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and his other relatives.

With the justification that it is “for their own good,” Queen Margrethe, 82, has stripped four of her eight grandchildren of their princely titles, setting off a bitter family feud reminiscent of the one that erupted when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left the UK and immigrated to California in January 2020.

The sole reigning monarch in Europe said that other royals, especially her late cousin Queen Elizabeth II, had encouraged her to withdraw their titles so that her younger son Prince Joachim’s four children, Nikolai, Felix, Henrik, and Athena, might have more regular lives. The Danish palace subsequently noted that it is in line with similar efforts by other European royal families, particularly the Windsors, to streamline their kingdoms.

Her second son Joachim and his four children, meanwhile, have been “upset” by her choice. The two oldest sons of his previous marriage, Nikolai and Felix, have been dubbed “playboy princes” since they are professional models and did not finish their two-year military training because they both felt it was “not suitable for them.” Joachim, the prince, claims his mother only informed him five days before. Countess of Frederiksborg, his first wife, revealed Friday night that she is “in shock.”

The Danish Royal Family is in “crisis,” according to Jacob Heinel Jensen, royal journalist for national newspaper BT who has been at the center of the story in Denmark, and is now going through its own Megxit, he told MailOnline.

The circumstances in Denmark now are similar to those in the UK two years ago, he said. On television yesterday, we saw Prince Joachim acting out of character and lamenting the plight of his kids. There are obvious similarities between him and Harry.

We have seen this slimming down over all of Europe. He said, “The days of enormous royal families, supported by the tax payer, with prince after prince and princess after princess, are ended.”

Possibly discussing her intentions to streamline the monarchy with Charles during the “reception of the century” held at Buckingham Palace on the day of the Queen’s death, according to Mr. Jensen.

“Margrethe was quite close to the Queen,” Mr. Jensen stated. She was one of the few who addressed her as “Lilibet,” while Her Majesty addressed her by her Danish nickname, “Daisy.” I’m not sure how close she is to Charles, but her status as possibly Europe’s most senior royal was evident by how near the Queen’s casket was while she was in London.

Charles has long spoken about the need to trim down his family, and he will be closely following what is occurring in Denmark, the guy said.

The future queen, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, today supported her mother-in-law Queen Margrethe’s choice to deprive four of her grandchildren of their royal titles and expressed concern about the stability of her own children’s places. Because they are worried about what Prince Joachim may do next, Mr. Jensen said that this is a clear “olive branch” to him.

According to Mr. Jensen, Queen Margrethe has enormous popularity in Denmark and, like her late cousin Queen Elizabeth II, is adored for her devotion to the crown and the nation’s citizens.

However, polling indicates that opinions about her choice in Denmark are divided, with some calling her “The Ice Queen,” which may worry Prince Charles if he is contemplating isolating Harry, Meghan, and their children.

A year before Megxit, at the end of 2018, the Swedish King made his customary Christmas speech to explain why he decided to deprive five of his grandchildren of their royal titles. This marked the beginning of the streamlining of Europe’s royal family. The number of working royals in the Netherlands has been reduced by King Willem Alexander to only five, along with the number of his residences, servants, limousines, and working heirs.

Even this similarity and trend were addressed in the Danish Crown’s statement, which said that the Queen’s choice is “in line with comparable modifications that other royal families have undertaken in different ways in recent years.”

It is well known that King Charles III has advocated for the House of Windsor to be reduced in size for many years.

Margrethe, who is currently the sole reigning monarch in Europe, will also have observed her cousin Queen Elizabeth II’s tough stance on her son Prince Andrew, who was stripped of all his military distinctions and royal patronage in January due to his connections to Jeffrey Epstein and his multi-million dollar settlement with Epstein’s sex slave, Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Experts have warned that Margrethe’s action would increase pressure on Charles to expedite his plans, including making a decision quickly on Harry and Meghan’s future and whether Archie and Lilibet should be HRH.

Why is Harry still an HRH? asked former MP Norman Baker, a renowned authority on royal finances, to MailOnline. Charles claims to desire to streamline the monarchy, but this must be sincere and not just pretentious. He has to reduce the expense to the tax payer. Just him, Camilla, William, Kate, and their kids will do. The remainder of them need to collect their P45s and either retire or find work.

The need to trim down the too large British royal family, he said, has long been evident and has only become more so as other European kingdoms, including the Danish one, have done the same to fit in with the 21st century. The fact that minor sidekicks like the Kents and Gloucesters still come with the bundle is becoming more ludicrous.

Tom Bower, an author and investigative journalist who just authored a biography of Meghan Markle, stated: “Charles does need to cut the numbers to defend the monarchy from criticism.” His main challenge is to counteract the Sussexes’ poison, which does pose a danger to his hegemony. The Sussexes’ issue is that their vitriol towards the Royal family in their book and Netflix series is essential to their financial existence. The greatest strategy for Charles would be to threaten to take away their titles if they show disloyalty.

When Margrethe and Charles visited at Buckingham Palace on the night of the Queen’s burial, several people saw how friendly she was toward Charles and wondered whether they had ever considered reducing their royal households.

‘The King, who was seen chatting to Queen Margrethe during his mother’s burial, may be pushed by her to take dramatic action over Harry and Meghan,’ said royal analyst Phil Dampier. On the royal website, the Sussexes have already been downgraded.

But until he learns the details of Harry’s book and Netflix program, both of which seem to be traveling back in time, Charles may be hesitant to make too many choices. The Danish Queen has been forceful, yet polarizing. Charles will want to make choices and absorb lessons, but he can’t put them off indefinitely.

And other royal families will have had an impact on Margrethe II’s choice as well. In 2019, her neighbor King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden stated that Princess Madeleine’s children will no longer have the title of HRH, leaving only Crown Princess Victoria and her offspring as the HRHs.

The Dutch royal family has likewise been drastically reduced in size. Prince Constantijn, the brother of King Willem-Alexander, and Princess Laurentien, his wife, are both employed full-time and do not receive any constitutional allowances from the crown as European royal families compete to maintain their standing and relevance.

However, Prince Joachim, 53, who is now wed to Princess Marie, his second wife, told the Danish news organization Ekstra Bladet: “We are all extremely sorry. Witnessing your children suffer damage is never enjoyable. They have been placed in an unfamiliar position. He said that the decision hadn’t even been announced to him for five days. The four children of Prince Joachim are Nikolai, Felix, Henrik, and Athena, who range in age from 23 to ten. As on January 1, they will no longer have such titles.

The government decided in 2016 that only the future king, Prince Christian, would get financing when his siblings reached adulthood. The queen’s other four grandchildren, born to Crown Prince Frederik, 54, would keep their titles.

In Britain, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to be at odds with King Charles and his son Prince William, his successor, particularly over their protection while in the UK and whether or not their children will be Prince and Princess.

Archie and Lilibet’s next book titles have not yet been revealed. The Royal Family’s website has already been modified to reflect the Prince and Princess of Wales’ new titles, but Archie and Lilibet’s have not.

The children, who are sixth and seventh in line to the throne after the death of their great-grandmother three weeks ago, now have the right to use the titles prince and princess. However, Buckingham Palace has yet to publicly clarify whether this will take place.

A King Charles representative also said last week that it was “unlikely” that any declaration would be made until at least September 26, when the official period of mourning comes to an end. No announcement has yet been made.

In accordance with regulations established by King George V in 1917 restricting the number of royal family members authorized to claim an HRH title, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, became qualified for the titles upon the death of the Queen.

The only royals permitted to use the HRH title are the children of the sovereign, the children of the sovereign’s sons, and the oldest surviving son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, according to the monarch’s Letters Patent, a formal edict expressing his desires.

According to several reports, King Charles intends to run a “slimmed-down” monarchy during his reign, which would allow him to concentrate on his heirs rather than his disgraced brother the Duke of York.

According to royal insiders, Charles feels Prince Andrew no longer has a place in the monarchy, and the Duke of York won’t be awarded any of his military titles again after losing them when information about his connections to Epstein came to light.

The Prince will lose all of his military titles and patronages, according to a January statement from Buckingham Palace. It is believed that the decision was significantly influenced by King Charles and Prince William.

The unrest caused by Queen Margrethe’s choice is still going on in Denmark.

As his mother “says there’s no good explanation,” Prince Nikolai said that he is saddened, astonished, and perplexed by his grandmother Queen Margrethe’s decision to dethrone him and his brothers “for their own benefit.”

The queen informed the 23-year-old prince and his three siblings that stripping them of their titles would be “good for them in the future.” As a result, the prince will no longer be allowed to use the title His Royal Highness.

It happens at the same time that his mother’s publicity secretary, Countess Alexandra, questioned why the change couldn’t have been postponed until their wedding, when they would “lose their titles anyhow.”

Naturally, my whole family and I are really upset. The choice and how swiftly it really happened have shocked us, as have my parents,’ Prince Nikolai, Prince Joachim’s oldest son, told the Danish daily Extrabladet.

From outside the Copenhagen flat he shares with his partner, he told reporters, “I am extremely bewildered as to why it has to happen like way.”

The decision has also left Countess Alexandra, mother to 20-year-old Princes Nikolai and Felix, “extremely sad” and “shocked.”

“There’s no good explanation,” she says, “and she can’t believe why and why now.” CNN was informed by Countess Alexandra’s press secretary, Helle von Wildenrath Lvgreen.

When they eventually get married, they would be stripped of their titles anyhow. Since her sons are young men who would soon get married, why not wait until that time so that the titles would vanish on a joyous occasion?

The Danish royal family retaliated on Thursday morning after Prince Joachim claimed his four children had just a five-day warning from their grandmother Queen Margrethe that they would lose their titles.

The decision had been “long time coming,” according to the palace, and was intended to “future-proof” the monarchy. The palace acknowledged that there are “a lot of emotions” around the matter.

The news that their titles of prince and princess will be removed, as well as their inability to use His or Her Royal Highness, has been deemed harmful by Prince Joachim, 53, the youngest of Margrethe’s two sons. Nikolai, Felix, Henrik, 13, and Athena, 10, were among the children who received the statement.

We’re all terribly depressed. Witnessing your children suffer damage is never enjoyable. In a conversation with the Danish news sourceEkstra Bladet, he added, “They are being placed in a position they do not comprehend.

Outside the Danish Embassy in Paris, where he resides with his second wife Marie and their children Henrik and Athena, stood Prince Joachim, who is sixth in line to the throne after his brother and his children.

The offspring of his first marriage to Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg, are models Nikolai and Felix.

The revelation came as a “blast out of the blue,” according to Alexandra, 58, who spent 10 years of her marriage to Prince Joachim before divorcing him in 2005. Her boys now feel “ostracized” from their family, she said. Additionally, according to her spokeswoman, Joachim did not hear the news directly from his mother but rather through a royal assistant.

Prince Christian, 16, Princess Isabella, 15, and Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, twins, age 11, who were born to Margrethe’s oldest son and heir Crown Prince Frederik, will all continue to hold their titles.

According to a local media source, the decision has caused a “icy” climate among the Royal Household and has riven what was once a fairly harmonious family. According to Danish royal writer Kenth Madsen, “the Queen and Prince Joachim have never engaged in a public argument.”

They did indeed present a unified face when they honored Queen Margrethe’s Golden Jubilee a few weeks ago.

Queen Margrethe, 82, who attended the burial with her oldest son Crown Prince Frederick, expressed her hope that the change would free her grandchildren from the ceremonial obligations and unique considerations that come with being a member of the Danish Royal Family.

The announcement also made hints that the monarchy is being simplified, echoing King Charles’ wishes for the British Royal Family and other European royal homes.

At a gathering in Copenhagen yesterday night, Queen Margrethe justified her choice, stating, “I believe it will be beneficial for them in the future. It is a consideration I have had for quite a long time.” That is the explanation.

Prince Joachim has said this morning that he was just notified of the decision five days ago, contrary to reports that he initially received the information in May.

I had five days’ notice before telling them. I received a plan in May that generally said that it would take place when the kids reached the age of 25.

Now I just had five days to inform them. In January, Athena turns 11,” he said.

In a statement to Danish magazine Se og Hr, his ex-wife, Countess Alexandra, added: “This comes like a bolt from the blue. The kids experience exclusion. They find it difficult to comprehend why their identity is being stripped away.

According to Helle von Wildenrath Lvgreen, her spokesman, Joachim was informed of his children’s destiny by an assistant.

It is said that Queen Margrethe never talked to her sons or grandkids.

The spokeswoman said, “The children have been informed by their father that they are losing their titles, just as Countess Alexandra was informed by Prince Joachim.”

The decision has been long in coming, as the Queen acknowledged yesterday, according to a new statement from the Royal Household published this afternoon.

“We recognize that there are a lot of emotions involved right now, but we hope that the Queen’s intention to safeguard the Royal Household for the future can be honored.”

According to the agreement, starting on January 1, 2023, Nikolai, Felix, Henrik, and Athena shall be addressed as either His Excellency the Count of Monpezat or Her Excellency the Countess of Monpezat.

However, they will continue to hold their places in the succession hierarchy.

They are now ranked seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth, but if any of Crown Prince Frederick’s offspring were to become parents, they would drop down.

The Danish Royal Household made the shocking disclosure in a statement that was made public yesterday.

“Her Majesty the Queen bestowed the titles of Count, Countess, and Comtesse of Monpezat to her sons, their wives, and their descendants in April 2008,” it said.

‘His Royal Highness Prince Christian, the sole grandson of the Queen, is anticipated to receive an annuity from the state as an adult, it was also reported in May 2016.

Her Majesty has determined that the descendants of His Royal Highness Prince Joachim may only use their titles as Count and Countess of Monpezat beginning of January 1, 2023, since their prior titles as Prince and Princess of Denmark will expire. This is a logical extension of her decision.

The descendants of Prince Joachim must now be addressed as Excellencies.

The Queen’s choice is consistent with previous, varied modifications of a similar kind made by other royal families.

Her Majesty the Queen intends to set the stage with this choice so that the four grandchildren will have more freedom to direct their own lives without being constrained by the obligations and unique concerns that come with being formally affiliated with the Royal House of Denmark as an institution.

The statement ended, “All four grandchildren retain their positions in the line of succession.”

Because of her strong relationships with several current monarchs, Margrethe, the world’s longest-serving queen who is celebrating her Golden Jubilee this year, is known to European royals as “aunt Daisy.”

She is the second cousin of Norway’s King Harald V and the first cousin of Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf.

She had a strong connection with the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen, and a distant relative, and she expressed very intimate tributes to them when they passed away.

At the Queen’s burial earlier this month, her son Crown Prince Frederick attended with her.

The Queen often appears with both families and seems to have a strong connection with both sons and all eight of her grandkids.

But today, it’s said that there is a “ice-cold air” between the Queen and her grandkids.

According to the main Danish magazine Ekstra Bladet, “there is ice-cold air between Queen Margrethe and her grandchildren after she decided that they would lose their titles as prince and princess from the New Year.”

“The news was not given by the queen herself, which has devastated the four youngsters as well as their parents.

They haven’t been summoned to Amalienborg for a cold Coke and a justification for why they must now be addressed as counts and countesses, she said. even not that far.

According to Business Insider, the Danish Civil List gives Queen Margrethe £800,813 a month, or £9.6 million annually, to run the royal household, which includes workers, buildings, and administration.

Her estimated net worth is now £37 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The children of the Queen apparently get around £183,750 per month. The majority of this money goes to Crown Prince Frederik, with 10% going to his wife, Princess Mary.

State-owned and managed by the Agency for Palaces and Cultural Properties, several of the Danish Royal Family’s estates are located in Denmark.

Included in this are their primary residence Amalienborg, their summer home Grsten Palace, their spring residence Fredensborg Palace, and their hunting lodge Eremitageslottet.

Marselisborg Castle, Château de Caix in France, and the royal hunting lodge in Jutland at Trend are among the private assets owned by the Danish Queen.

While Prince Joachim works as a Defense Attaché at the Danish Embassy in Paris, where he has lived with his second wife Princess Marie since September 2020, he sometimes travels back to Denmark to stay in the Schackenborg Castle in southern Jutland.

Before selling the property in 2014, the prince lived on the estate as his private house from 1993.

However, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie periodically return to reside there for a little length of time since they serve on the board of the Schackenborg Castle Foundation.

Prince Joachim had a stroke in the summer of 2020 while on vacation in France with his family and had to be taken to the hospital for urgent brain surgery.

The oldest grandsons of Margrethe, Felix and Nikolai, Prince Joachim’s sons, have chosen a life in the spotlight.

Both of the 20-somethings, who are Danish residents, enrolled at the National Military Academy but left before finishing their courses.

They have had successful modeling careers, appearing in several commercial campaigns and on magazine covers.

When Nikolai appeared in the Burberry show at London Fashion Week in 2018, he attracted notice from all around the world. He did this in front of a front row that included Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Michelle Dockery, Naomi Watts, Zendaya, and Idris Elba.

He has a number of modeling jobs and is represented by the Danish modeling agency Scoop Models.

When he appeared on the cover of Vogue Scandinavia in February, he threw royal admirers into a frenzy.

When he appeared in the magazine, the 22-year-old exuded refinement and looked effortlessly chic in a similar pink Dior jacket and pants as he stood in front of a variety of vibrant flowers.

In 2019, Prince Nikolai started his B education at Copenhagen Business School. When he is not modeling, Nikolai studies business administration and service management there.

He was able to visit his younger siblings and his father more readily the previous year since he was living in Paris as part of a school exchange.

He began training to become an Army Lieutenant at the Royal Danish Military Academy at the end of last year, but it was revealed in October that he had left after only two months because it “wasn’t for him.”

In photographs and an advertisement advertising the new Reflect line of necklaces, earrings, and rings, Prince Felix decided to make his modeling debut for the jewelry brand Georg Jensen.

Even before his grandmother’s declaration, Felix was anticipated to choose a professional path different than that of a “working royal,” since the royal is farther down the line of succession, and modelling is undoubtedly a common job option for minor royals throughout the world.

While becoming into their own selves, Felix and Nikolai sometimes attend royal functions.

Early in September, they joined their parents for the festivities for their grandmother’s golden jubilee, and they both looked extremely sharp.

The day after attending the funeral and other mourning activities in London for Queen Elizabeth II, Margrethe tested positive for Covid-19.

Together with her son Crown Prince Frederik, she was present in Westminster Abbey, and the two afterwards attended the Queen’s Committal Service at Windsor.

The princess also visited the Queen’s casket in Westminster Hall on the eve of her death and went to the “reception of the century” at Buckingham Palace, where she was seen mingling closely with King Charles.

The monarch joined Queen Sonja of Norway at a literary event in Oslo on Monday, marking her first public outing since she was found to have Covid in her system.

Prior to their attendance at a dinner at the Grand Hotel, Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Queen Sonja of Norway presented each other with the Nordic Association’s annual language prize at Nordens Hus.

For the gala dinner, Margrethe donned an eye-catching long pink skirt together with a navy blue lace top.

She arrived at the Grand Hotel with her hair neatly pulled back and a blue blanket draped over her shoulders.
