The Danish Royal Court says Prince Joachim is now recovering in hospital following recent surgery.
Doctors performed surgery on Prince Joachim for a blood clot in the brain during the early morning hours of Saturday, 25 July at the University Hospital in Toulouse, France.
Prince Joachim now is recovering after receiving treatment in the Intensive Care Unit, with the doctors’ assessment that he will not have any physical effects or other injuries due to the blood clot.
The blood clot in the brain was caused by the sudden dissection of an artery, and the hospital’s medical team assesses that the risk of recurrence is very small once the artery has healed.
Prince Joachim is expected to be moved out of the intensive care unit as soon as possible but will continue to be hospitalized for some time to come. It is still the royal family’s hope that the media will comply with the wish for calm and respect for privacy.
The Royal Danish Court’s Director of Communications Lene Balleby said, ‘Prince Joachim and Princess Marie would like to express thanks for the support and the many warm greetings they have received over the past few days. It means a great deal. Her Majesty The Queen also expresses warm thanks for all of the sympathy that has been shown to the royal family.’
