Re: Spoilt Brats...
Alisa. There is no evidence they're spoilt brats. I guess if you are raised as a Prince, surrounded by relatives and courtiers who respect the titles of the institution of monarchy but then have the title removed, it may seem a negative thing to do. I agree that in future the numbers of Princes and Princesses should be limited -This is easily done by saying in future only children of the monarch or Crown Prince will be given a royal title at birth. Taking a title away is something different, and has obviously caused hurt. This seems a shame in a family that previously seemed very close.
...is how Joachim and his family come off complaining.
It's a very wise decisions as 10-20 years from now there could well be nearly a dozen Prince/Princesses of Denmark at hand. Furthermore as Nikolai has shown they could very be using their titles for financial gain and other ventures.
It's sad that Joachim and Alexandra feel that their children's identity is tied up with not who they are (grandchildren of the sovereign) but the titles Prince/Princess of Denmark. They could really learn a lesson or 2 from Princess Anne and her children.
Also Alexandra herself went from Princess to Countess and she hasn't faired badly.
