Prince Joaquin, the youngest son of Queen Margaret II of Denmark, is “stabilized” after an operation for a blood clot in the brain, as the Danish royal family announced on Sunday.
The operation took place at the Toulouse University Hospital in France. “His situation is stable. He has had time for professional treatment and is doing well under these circumstances,” the Royal Palace said in a statement to the Danish news agency Ritzau.
The 51-year-old prince moved to France last year with his French-born wife Princess Maria and their two children. In early June he was appointed military attaché to the Danish embassy in Paris.
Joaquin is sixth on the throne after his older brother, Crown Prince Federico, and their four children.
