Danish royal family, the second son of Queen Margrethe II. He is second in line to the Danish throne after his brother, Crown Prince Frederick.
In 1986, Prince Joachim, like his brother before him, graduated from Oregaard Secondary School. He went on to serve in the military, becoming a captain in the Reserves. His interest in agriculture took him to Australia, where he studied practical farming and to Denmark, where he attended agricultural college.
He married Alexandra Christina Manley, an English commoner and resident of Hong Kong, on 11/18/1995 at Renaissance Frederiksborg Castle church, about 30 miles north of Copenhagen. The ceremony was attended by some 300 guests, the Kings of Sweden and Norway, and royalty from all over Europe. The couple split up in September 2004 with a divorce finalized in April 2005 after nearly 10 years of marriage and two children, the Princes Nikolai and Felix. In 2008 Joachim married Marie Cavalier on May 24, 2008 at about 5 PM local time in Moegeltoender, Denmark. His new bride is French-born and converted from Catholicism.
