Marlene - It's very sad to see King Constantine in such a fragile state. Does he have a particular medical condition or is it just an age issue? I've always admired how he and Queen Anne Marie led their lives quietly and seemingly without fuss. Just sad.

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

He has been unwell for some time but I do not know why

I remember reading that King Constantine suffered a stroke around November 2016 while visiting Denmark. He may have suffered additional ones since then.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask a question regarding styles in the Royal family of Denmark.
Once and maybe still, if a Prince of Denmark didn't ask for permission to marry, they lost their style of Prince.

Second question is, the children of HRH, Prince Joachim are Highnesses. Those children's male descendants still style Highness's and Prince's as long as they have approval from the Monarch before entering a marriage ?

There seems to be no real pattern to follow.

Thank you in advance.

There were reports in 2016 that he had suffered a stroke but I dont think there was any official confirmation.

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

In Denmark, children of sovereign are HRH and Prince or Princess of Denmark. Children of the Heir apparent are also HRH. Everyone else is HH. The children of Vincent will be HH. However, all Margrethe's descendants are Count and Countesses of Montpezat. I believe that when Frederik succeeds to the throne, there will be a further limitation of the royal titles - Joachim's kids will not be working royals in terms of royal duties - so I expect that the three sons' kids will not be royal and will use the countly title instead. Although there is equality in succession, Isabella, Josephine and Athena cannot pass their royal rank to their kids.

Looks like Princess Elizabeth wasn't present. I wonder if she's ailing.

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

She may not have been invited as she as she is not immediate family. None of Benedikte nor Anne Marie's children were invited -- again not immediate family.

Princess Elisabeth is listed in the list above just after Princess Athena and was sitting next to the Queen's sisters.
