And it seems that the two small pods have sailed well into French:"After two months, they speak very good French"
, said Princess Marie, who could also tell that the children have been delighted with their new school.'Yes, I think so - they don't complain anyway. So I think they're happy"
, she said, continuing:"Of course they miss their friends in Denmark, but there are a lot of kids from a lot of nationalities here, and it's exciting."
The royal family moved to Paris in July when Prince Joachim began the prestigious French leadership training at the École Militaire in Paris.
And the prince also thrives, told the princess:"It's very exciting. It's a little tough. He works really, really a lot, but I think he thinks it's very good for him"

The Prince couple has rented out their villa in Klampenborg in the year they are in Paris. Former Baroness Caroline Fleming has rented it.
This also means that Prince Joachim and Princess Marie have to find other places to stay when they plan to visit Denmark during the autumn holidays."We will live in Amalienborg or Schackenborg, but we haven't been home yet"
, explained Princess Marie, who also cemented that her stay in Paris so far is limited."But it's only a year, so we'll probably find a place to be"
, said Marie, who also said that the family had not yet decided whether they would return to Denmark for Christmas.
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie will attend a dinner on Tuesday evening in connection with the business promotion that the Crown Prince couple is currently presenting in France. Here they will meet Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary:"It's going to be nice"
, said the princess briefly.
Although Princess Marie is 'very happy' to be back in France in her own words, it is not entirely without doubt that the family has left Denmark for a while.
The family misses friends and family:"And Paris may not be quite as clean as Copenhagen with the air, but you always miss something when you are in another country. And Denmark is such a fantastic country"
, the Danish princess said before moving on to the rainy Paris.
