Prince Joachim, Princess Marie move house after lockdown is lifted in Denmark

Prince Joachim, Princess Marie move house after lockdown is lifted in Denmark

The Danish royals are preparing to end their quarantine they preferred to spend in Schackenborg Castle in southern Jutland. As the country lifts the restrictions, Prince Joachim, his wife Princess Marie and their children, Prince Henrik, and Princess Athena are preparing to move house.

The Schackenborg estate was the prince’s private residence from 1993 to 2014 before he sold the castle. As both Prince Joachim and Princess Marie are on the board of the Schackenborg Castle Foundation, they occasionally return to live there for short periods of time.

The Palace confirmed on Thursday the news that the royal family-of-four have been residing temporarily at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen since the outbreak of coronavirus across the globe.

The royal family returned to Denmark from Paris, France, where Prince Joachim has been undertaking military training. It is not known when the royal will resume his training as France has remained under lockdown during the novel pathogen epidemic.

Joachim and Marie’s son, Prince Henrik, is thought to be the youngest royal to have been tested for coronavirus.

According to the statement released by the Danish royal court on 24 March, the youngster was examined at Rigshospitalet in Denmark for breathing problems associated with asthmatic bronchitis. Fortunately, Prince Henrik tested negative for COVID-19 during his hospital visit.
