Prins Joachim... Prince Joachim

Hvis du gerne vil lære mere om vores anden prins, Joachim, (du ved...kronprins Frederiks lille bror!) er det nødvendigt at du besøger ham ved hans hjem....

If you want to know a little more about our other prince, Joachim, (you know... Crown Prince/Future King Frederik's little brother), you really need to visit him at home....

Først-- Kør syd (næsten til den tyske grænse) til en hyggelig lille by som hedder Møgeltønder.
First- You must drive south (almost to the German border) to a cosy little town called Møgeltønder.

Anden- Tjek flagstang lige udenfra Schackenborg Slot for at se hvis han er hjemme (og JA, han var hjemme i torsdags da vi besøgte!)

Second-- Check the flagpole just outside of Schackenborg Castle to see if he is home (and YES, he was home when we were there for a visit on Thursday!)
Tredje- Tag en Viking med så han kan lære dig alle om Joachims rulle som prins. Vidste du at han er en landmand?! Og hans første kone var født i Hong Kong? Og han kan tale 4 sprog (kan du gætte hvilke?)

Third-- Take a Viking with you so he can teach you all about Joachim and his roll as prince. Did you know that he is a farmer?? And that his first wife was from Hong Kong? And he can speak 4 languages (can you guess which ones?!)
Fjerde- Kig efter de livgarden som stå ved slottet (ligesom Amalienborg og Gråsten) men du finder ikke dem.. Fordi Schackenborg Slot (Prins Joachims hjem) har ikke livgarden. Jeg syntes at det var lidt mærkeligt.....

Fourth- Look for all those royal guards (you know, the kind that stand outside of Amalienborg and Gråsten castles), but you will not find them... Because Schackenborg Castle (Prince Joachim's private residence) does not have them.... I thought that was a little strange....

Femte- Lig mærke til monogram på hegnen.. Kan du se at de er for Joachim og hans nye kone Marie?
Fifth- Notice the royal crest on the fence... Can you see that it represents Joachim and his new wife, Marie?

Du kan læse mere HER om Schackenborg Slot hvis du har lyst.
You can read more HERE (in Danish, of course) about Schackenborg Castle if you are interested.

You have to go there in summer, then you`ll see real charming Møgeltønder!

I've seen a couple of interviews with him. He seems like a nice guy. Gorgeous "house"!
