Prince Nikolai and his siblings were stripped of their titles after Danish Queen Margrethe decided it was “for their own good”.

Prince Nikolai told the Danish newspaper Extrabladet: “My whole family and I are of course very sad.

“We are, as my parents have also stated, in shock at this decision and at how quickly it has actually gone.”

He added: “I am very confused as to why it has to happen like this.”

Countess Alexandra, who is the mother to Nikolai and his 20-year-old brother Felix, is also “very sad” and “shocked” by the decision.

Her press secretary, Helle von Wildenrath Lovgreen, told CNN: “She can’t believe why and why now, because there’s no good reason.”

She added: “They would lose their titles anyway when they get married one day.

“Her sons are young men so maybe they might get married in the near future so why shouldn’t it wait until that day so that the titles would disappear on a happy day?”

Prince Joachim, who is Queen Margrethe’s youngest son, also expressed his disappointment and claimed his children, including 13-year-old Henrick and 10-year-old Athena, had been “harmed” by the news.

He said: “We are all very sad. It’s never fun to see your children being harmed.

“They are been put in a situation they do not understand.”

However, Amalienborg Castle fired back after Joachim alleged his four children were given just five days’ notice.

They said “a lot of emotions” were on display but stressed the decision had been a “long time coming” and was designed to “future-proof” the Danish Royal Family.

The four children of heir apparent Crown Prince Frederik – 16-year-old Prince Christian, 15-year-old Princess Isabella and 11-year-old twins Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine – will maintain their titles.
