The photos, which can be viewed on Instagram, were taken in the Knights’ Hall of Christiansborg Palace in Amalienborg in September this year. Then the Queen announced that the four children of Prince Joachim would lose their current status. The change will come into effect on January 1, 2023, and until then Nikolai, Felix, Henrik and Athena will be referred to as His Excellency the Count of Monpezat or Her Excellency the Countess of Monpezat respectively. Siblings will retain their places – seventh through tenth – in the line of succession.

53-year-old Joachim admitted in an interview with the press that his mother’s decision divided the family and he felt cheated. As he stated, he learned about everything only five days before the publication of the statement. However, the Queen has long been planning such a move, which she believes is in the best interest of her grandchildren. Nevertheless, she apologized to relatives:

It is my duty and desire as Queen to ensure that the monarchy always moves with the times. Sometimes it means having to make difficult decisions and no time is right for them.

Holding a title comes with a number of responsibilities that will fall upon fewer members of the royal family in the future. . . .

“I made a decision as a queen, mother and grandmother, but as a mother and grandmother I did not take into account how much my younger son and his family feel affected. (…) I am sorry for that,” admitted Małgorzata. “No one should doubt that my children, daughters-in-law and grandchildren are my great joy and pride. I now hope that as a family we will find a way out of this situation,” she concluded.

The decision does not apply to the four children of Prince Frederik I Princess Mary. Unlike their cousins, 17-year-old Prince Christian, 15-year-old Princess Isabella and 11-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine remain at court as children of the future royal couple.

Royal experts suggest that Małgorzata takes away the titles of her granddaughters due to the conflict between her sons. Joachim is supposed to be head over heels in love with his sister-in-law. The Swedish women’s weekly Svensk Damtidning even published a photo that allegedly shows the prince trying to kiss his brother’s wife while dancing together. “(…) She moved as far as she could, keeping a smile on her face, and Maria (Joachim’s wife) witnessed this embarrassing moment,” journalists wrote.
