Denmark’s Queen stripped 4 of her grandchildren of their royal titles!
Claiming she’s looking to protect the youngest royals from the pressures of public life, the Queen of Denmark stripped four of her grandchildren of their royal titles. The children’s parents aren’t exactly happy with the queens decision.
Queen Margrethe, now Europe’s only reigning Queen and longest-serving monarch, has decided that the children of her youngest son, Prince Joachim, should be able to “shape their own existence” instead of having to perform the official duties required of them if they kept the titles.
Instead, Nikolai, Felix, Henrik and Athena, aged between 10 and 23, will only be known as counts and countesses from next year.
“As of January 1, 2023, the descendants of His Royal Highness Prince Joachim will only be able to use their titles of Count and Countess of Monpezat, their previous titles of Prince and Princess of Denmark ceasing to exist,
With her decision, Her Majesty the Queen wants to create a framework for the four grandchildren, to a much greater degree, to be able to shape their own existence without being limited by the special considerations and obligations that a formal affiliation with the Royal House as an institution implies.”Said a statement from the palace
