The Danish Royal Family Is Going Through the Same Drama as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

King Charles III of the UK isn’t the only one stripping his grandchildren of their prince and princess titles.

On September 28, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark announced that four of her grandchildren will lose their prince and princess titles as of January 1, 2023. Instead, the children of Prince Joachim, her younger son, will henceforth be referred to as His Excellency Count of Monpezat or Her Excellency Countess of Monpezat. 

Joachim shares sons Prince Nikolai, 23, and Prince Felix, 20, with his first wife, Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg. He also shares a 13-year-old son, Prince Henrik, and a 10-year-old daughter, Princess Athena, with his current wife, Princess Marie.

For now, the four children of Joachim’s brother and sister-in-law, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, will keep their royal titles, as 16-year-old Prince Christian is expected to take over the monarchy in the future.
