Riot in Denmark: Queen Margrethe revokes the titles of the children of her son Prince Joachim. A survey showed that many Danes now want this decision for Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary’s children.

The scandal surrounding Queen Margrethe’s title decision, 82, is still very moving. From January, the children of their son Prince Joachim, 54, and his wife Princess Marie, 46, – Prince Nikolai, 23, Prince Felix, 20, Prince Henrik, 13, and Princess Athena, 10, – are said to no longer be princes and princesses , but “only” may use the titles Count and Countess of Monpezat.

Split opinion on Queen Margrethe’s decision

The Danish Voll is divided on the situation. A survey of 1,271 Danes by the Danish tabloid “BT” showed that more than half – namely 56 percent – did not see Queen Margrethe more positively or negatively as a result of the decision. Only 17 percent have a more negative opinion afterwards, 22 percent are even more positive.

Should Prince Frederik and Princess Mary’s children also be deprived of their titles?

“BT” has now commissioned a new survey in which 1,248 Danes should give an answer between November 11 and 15, 2022 to the question of how much they agree with the statement that three out of four children of Crown Prince Frederik, 54, and Princess Mary, 50, will also be stripped of their prince and princess titles. The result: 25 percent totally or partially disagreed that Princess Isabella, 15, Prince Vincent, 11, and Princess Josephine, 11, lose their titles, but 32 percent totally or partially agreed. 44 percent are undecided or don’t know how to answer the question. A note: the total is 101 percent due to rounding.

The results on whether the Danes also want Prince Frederik’s and Princess Mary’s children to have their titles revoked are very tight. Striking: After all, almost half of those surveyed have no correct opinion on this. Queen Margrethe will probably not allow herself to be talked into her decisions anyway.
