Re: Joachim's sons feel ostracised
Agreed. A great pity. This decision may have solved a future problem but has created new problems. Evidently Prince Joachim was informed formally 5 days ago, not by the Queen herself. Prince Nikolai said today that the situation has been made worse by the fact that it was made public so quickly. As you and I discussed an issue on a previous thread, it is not always *what* is done but *how* it is done.
Countess Alexandra's statement seems very strong, as does Prince Joachim's. Especially Alexandra saying her sons feel ostracised.
AS the Queen has said she has been considering the decision for some time she makes clear it was her choice so the criticism would seem directed at Her Majesty. Such a shame as the Queen seemed to have a good relationship with Alexandra.
I read elsewhere that Joachim was informed in May. So not a bombshell. I guess no one told Alexandra in advance, though.
