Royal Drama! Conflict Between Princess Marie Of Denmark And Her Husband's Ex-Wife Was Caught On Camera

Date July 2, 2018 15:35

Denmark's royal family is certainly not as talked about as the British royals, but these people have some drama going on in their midst as well. 

Queen Margrethe II's son Prince Joachim has been married twice in his life. From 1995 to 2005 his partner was Countess Alexandra, with whom he shares two sons, Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix.

In 2008, Denmark's royal heir remarried and is still devoted to Princess Marie. The couple has two children together: Prince Henrik and Princess Athena.

While Joachim and ex-wife Alexandra are on good terms (they share joint custody of their sons, and the countess often attends family events), it looks like Princess Marie isn't her predecessor's favorite family member.


Royal tension

Prince Nikolai just graduated from school and was celebrating his big milestone with members of his family.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended the graduation ceremony accompanied by the Nikolai's mother Alexandra. And that's when things got a little tense.

Marie embraced the new graduate for a photo opportunity, when the countess swooped in and pushed her hand away from Nikolai. Alexandra then put her own hand around Nikolai and the family posed for the photographers.

Princess Marie had a brief moment of confusion but was able to pull herself together and smile for the cameras.

Looks like Alexandra is very territorial and wasn't happy about seeing her ex-husband's new wife being overly friendly with her son.

Another royal conflict

This year is already full of blunders within different royal families. A few months ago, Queen Letizia of Spain didn't let her mother-in-law, Queen Sofia, take a picture with her daughters, and even pushed the royal's hand off Princess Leonor.

Does this mean all royals should be careful while trying to take pictures with their family? What do you think about the situation?
