Royal Profile: Prince Henrik of Denmark

Prince Henrik Carl Joachim Alain of Denmark was born 4 May 2009, the first child of Prince Joachim and his second wife, Princess Marie. The prince has two older half-brothers from his father's first marriage, Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix, and a younger sister. He was christened on the 26 July 2009, and his godparents were:
  • Crown Princess Mary (paternal aunt)
  • Charles Cavallier(maternal uncle)
  •  Benjamin Grandet(maternal uncle)
  •  Britt Davidsen Siesbye  (family friend)
  • Christian Scherfig (family friend)
He was named for his grandfathers, one of his uncles or perhaps his great uncle and his father. His official style is:
His Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark, Count of Monpezat. He is presently 9th in line for the Danish throne.

He is likely getting ready to begin school this fall, and like his brothers (and father and uncle before that), he will probably attend Krebs

He shares a birthday with Pauline Ducruet of Monaco and Pablo Fernández-Sastrón y Gómez-Acebo of Spain. Pauline is the niece of Prince Albert II, Pablo is  the great-nephew of King Juan Carlos.
