Prince Nikolai of Denmark was confirmed in a private ceremony in Fredensborg Palace Church on Saturday.
The ceremony was followed by a luncheon at Fredensborg Palace.
Prince Nikolai and family celebrate his confirmation
The family posed for photos on the steps, with Prince Joachim and Countess Alexandra both beaming with pride for their eldest son.
Joachim’s wife, Princess Marie, discreetly stood for photos with their blended family along with Countess Alexandra’s husband, Martin Jorgensen. Marie and Joachim’s son, Prince Henrik, was also in attendance for his brother’s confirmation.
It is wonderful to see this family function so well both publicly and privately. Joachim and Alexandra and their new spouses have seen to the children’s well-being first and foremost, and I admire them for that. Congratulations to Nikolai on his important milestone!
