We might see a limiting system in place for Joachim's offspring.
With already 4 heirs from the crown prince the younger children of Joachim do not need to continue the line of succession.
To be honest im almost hoping his two older boys will end up as royal Consorts to two of the many heiresses Europe has these days. Maybe Henrik could also end up with Estelle and his older half-brothers marrying Ingrid Alexandra of Norway, Catharina-Amalia of the Netherlands, Elizabeth of Belgium or Leonor of Spain.
Joachim, Alexandra and Marie have done a brilliant job so far in raising these three fine young men and they would be a great addition to any family Royal or not.
