“It is still the wish of the family that the prince has the necessary rest to fully recover.
“Prince Joachim and Princess Marie would like to thank the hospital staff involved on this occasion.”
Lene Balleby, a spokeswoman for the royal family, said in an official statement at the time: “The blood clot in the brain was due to a sudden dissection of an artery and the hospital’s medical team judges that the risk of recurrence is very small when the artery has healed. ‘

Joachim had marked the event along with the teen’s mother and his ex-wife, Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg.
The parents were accompanied by their eldest son, Prince Nikolai, 20, and Joachim’s current wife, Princess Marie, and their two children, Prince Henrik, 11, and Princess Athena, eight.
