Joachim stayed at the Danish royal family's French residence Château de Cayx in south west France while he was recovering after the surgery. He was joined by his wife Princess Marie and children Prince Henrik, 11, and Princess Athena, eight.

The royal also has two sons from his first marriage to Countess Alexandra of Frederiksborg – Prince Nikolai, 21, and Prince Felix, 18.

Crown Prince Frederik met his younger brother Joachim after his surgery in France last month.
