"Despite the removal of their titles, it appears that Prince Joachim’s children have retained their titles in the Danish civil registry, according to a review by Danish press. The review notes that Count Nikolai and Count Felix are still listed as Princes, and they are styled as ‘Their Highnesses’.
The fact that they are still registered in the civil registry with princely titles means that Nikolai and Felix still have princely titles on official documents such as insurance papers or passports if they were to apply for them now. It is reported that this is the decision made by Prince Joachim’s children themselves.
The Ministry of Social Affairs, Housing, and the Elderly told the press press that individuals are responsible for changing their names unless they are under 18 years of age. The Ministry also states that there are no official guidelines for when to change one’s name."
Their mother's spokesperson stated both are planning to change their titles soon. Uh huh.
