Here is an article I found http://go.tv2.dk/articleu...one-og-k%C3%A6rester.htmlPrince Joachim : Ex - wife and girlfriends.
In 1987, Prince Joachim began his career as a recruit soldiers at the Queen's Regiment. Then he moved to the infantry sergeant school in Sønderborg, where he became a regular guest in the nightlife.
It was here in Southern Jutland, the young prince met his first girlfriend sergeant student Charlotte Oersted. The relationship between Joachim and Fr. Oersted held for nearly two years, when the two young lovers soldiers marched in opposite directions.
Around 1990 Prince Joachim met his next great love photo model Iben Detlef. Their relationship ended abruptly in 1995 when Joachim phoned home from Hong Kong and put an end to his five years long relationship with the Danish model.
Joachim ended his relationship with Iben Detlef in March 1995. Already in May, he announced his engagement to the beautiful businesswoman Alexandra Manley, daughter of an Austrian mother and a Chinese father. The prince's love developed very quickly; Maybe this was love at first sight - or could there be a little sweetheart overlap ...
Be that as it may, on November 18, 1995, Joachim married Alexandra and all of Denmark had a wonderful princess. And we had the pleasure of admiring them for ten years, until the couple divorced in November 2005.
If you believe Trine Villemann's book about the royals, Joachim and Alexandra never been married out of deep love. According Villemann they married for practical reasons and not much else: Prince Joachim knew that a foreign princess would be a hit at Amalienborg - unlike his Danish model girlfriend - And Alexandra wanted to get away from Hong Kong. So it was a good working match.
This practical union was, as we know not sustainable. Let us hope that Joachim's second and impending marriage, has a more happy future in store. In any case, the Prince will marry Marie Cavallier on Saturday, May 24th and transforms the French Miss to Princess Marie of Denmark .Helene Bjerg-Pedersen
