As Insider previously reported, the Danish monarch announced via the royal family's website that the children of her youngest son, Prince Joachim of Denmark, will no longer have royal titles in 2023.
The decision affects Prince Nikolai, 23; Prince Felix, 10; Prince Henrik, 13; and Princess Athena, 10. They will still be able to use the titles of counts and countess of Monpezat, according to the statement on the royal website.
According to the statement, the Queen made the decision so her grandchildren would "be able to shape their own lives" without being formally affiliated with the royal household.
Meanwhile, the children of Margrethe's eldest son and heir to the throne, Prince Frederik, still have the right to use their royal titles.
Representatives for the royal family of Denmark did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
