A few days ago, Prince Joachim of Denmark underwent emergency surgery after having a stroke. Out of business, the news is rather reassuring.

The Danish people can breathe. A few days ago, Prince Joachim of Denmark underwent emergency brain surgery while on vacation in southern France with his family. Princess Mary’s husband “was admitted late Friday evening to the Toulouse University Hospital” Friday July 24. On site, he has “was immediately operated on for a blood clot in the brain”. The Royal Court then specified that “the operation was a success”, that the state of Prince Joachim was now “stable”, and that he was recovering from his operation surrounded by his relatives. A few days later, the news is reassuring for Joachim from Denmark. In a new statement, the court said that “the doctors’ diagnosis is now that Prince Joachim will not have any physical consequences or other consequences of the consequences of his blood clot”.

According to her, the stroke suffered by the prince Joachim from Denmark “is due to a sudden dissection of an artery, and the medical team believes that the risk of relapse is very low, once the artery is treated”. His stroke occurred while he was on vacation at Cayx Castle in the Lot, home of his father and owned by his mother, the Queen Margrethe II. He was first taken to Cahors hospital before being transferred to Toulouse where he was operated successfully. Prince Joachim “should leave intensive care quickly but will remain hospitalized for some time”, indicates the palace, Tuesday, July 27, in its press release. Very reassuring news for the Danes, but especially for those close to the prince, including his wife Mary, and his children Nikolai, Felix, Henrik and Athena.

Sixth in order of succession

The prince Joachim spent a year of training in Paris at the Center des Hautes Etudes Militaires (CHEM) as well as at the Institut des Hautes Etudes de la Défense Nationale (IHEDN) at the Military School. In France for several months, he met Emmanuel Macron on several occasions. On September 1, the prince Joachim will be appointed Defense Attaché in France, at the Danish Embassy. “Prince Joachim has a long experience with the armed forces (…) His skills will be put to contribution with his in-depth knowledge of the country, the culture and a strong local network”, explained the Court in a press release. As a reminder, the prince is the younger brother of the crown prince Frederik, called to reign. He is currently sixth in the order of succession to the Danish throne, after his brother and four children.
