‘Not for him,’ says a Danish prince who pulls out of military training after only two months.
The Danish Royal Family has acknowledged that Prince FELIX of Denmark has dropped out of his Army’s Lieutenant Training barely a few weeks after starting it.
Prince Felix, 19, took a break from his military training at the Royal Danish Army’s Sergeant School, which he had started in August. The Danish palace released a brief statement announcing the eighth-in-line to the throne’s decision.
“His Highness Prince Felix has decided to suspend the training course at the Army’s Lieutenant Training, which Prince Felix began in August at the Gardehus Barracks in Slagelse,” the notice said, without elaborating on the reason for Prince Felix’s decision.
“The prince’s motivations are personal, and the Royal House has no further comment on the choice.”
Prince Felix is the second son of Queen Margrethe II’s second child, Prince Joachim, and his first wife Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg.
Felix’s mother revealed a few more details about the little royal’s decision.
“It is true that Prince Felix is leaving the military,” the Countess said in a statement sent through a press secretary and cited by royal blogger Gert’s Royals.
“It was simply not for him, and he has decided to give up.”
“Now it’s up to the prince to figure out what he’ll do next in peace.”
Two months after graduating from Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium, Felix enrolled at the military academy.
In an interview with the Danish magazine Billed Bladet, the adolescent expressed his joy at the achievement and expressed his excitement at being able to celebrate it with his loved ones.
“It was certainly a really momentous event,” he remarked.
“And it’s great to have Dad back from Paris, even if it’s only for a few days.”
“However, the mere fact that he is here makes me very happy.”
At Denmark’s embassy in Paris, Prince Joachim serves as the country’s defense attaché.
He also attended the Royal Danish Army’s Sergeant School and rose to the rank of brigadier general after gaining a good military education.
Prince Nikolai, Prince Felix’s older brother, had likewise dropped out of his military training after only a few months.
The statement was made in October 2018 by the Danish palace, which stated that the king had quit the military on his own terms and with the full support of his parents.
The Countess’ private secretary delivered a statement. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
