Danish Queen says she’s ‘sorry’ for stripping grandchildren of royal titles

Danish queen sorry for depriving grandchildren of titles

After taking away the royal titles of four of her eight grandchildren, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark said she was sorry. She hasn’t changed her mind about moving, though.

The 82-year-old queen, who has been on the throne for 50 years, said on Thursday that the children of her younger son, Prince Joachim, will no longer be called prince and princess after next year.

Queen Margrethe is in Korsoer, Denmark, on August 29 to celebrate her 50th year on the throne. Her sons, Crown Prince Frederik (left) and Prince Joachim (right) stand on either side of her.

Queen Margrethe is in Korsoer, Denmark, on August 29 to celebrate her 50th year on the throne. Her sons, Crown Prince Frederik (left) and Prince Joachim (right), stand on either side of her. Instead, they will only be able to call themselves counts and countesses of Monpezat, and they will be called excellencies. The royal household says that their HRH titles will be “discontinued.”

Helle von Wildenrath Lvgreen, the press secretary for Countess Alexandra, Prince Joachim’s ex-wife, told CNN on Thursday that Joachim and his children were “sad” and “shocked” by the decision. Queen Margrethe said in a statement released by the royal house on Monday that she saw the decision as “a necessary future-proofing of the monarchy.”

“In the past few days, there have been strong reactions to the decision I made about how Prince Joachim’s four children will use their titles in the future.” “Of course, that affects me,” the king or queen said in the statement.

I’ve thought about this for a long time. Since I’ve been king for 50 years, it’s natural for me to look both back and forward. As Queen, it is my job and my wish to make sure that the monarchy always changes to fit the times. This means that sometimes hard decisions have to be made, and it will always be hard to find the right time, “she said.

The Queen said that she made the “adjustment” so that the younger royals could live more normal lives. She did this because other royal families had made similar decisions to cut down on the monarchy. “Holding a royal title comes with a lot of responsibilities that will fall on fewer members of the royal family in the future,” she said.

The Queen’s oldest son, Crown Prince Frederik, is first in line to take the throne. Prince Christian, who is his oldest child, is second in line. Frederik’s four children still have their titles.

His younger brother, Joachim, lives in Paris with his wife, Princess Marie, and their two kids, Henrik, 13, and Athena, 10. From his first marriage to Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg, the prince has two older sons: Nikolai, who is 23 years old, and Felix, who is 20 years old. Even though Joachim’s children will no longer be royal, they will still be next in line to be king.

The Queen said, “As Queen, mother, and grandmother, I’ve made my decision, but as a mother and grandmother, I didn’t realize how much my younger son and his family would be affected.” That has a big impact, and I’m sorry about that. “

She also said, “No one should have any doubt that my children, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren are my greatest joy and pride. Now, I hope that we can find the peace we need to get through this as a family.
