This July 22, Prince Felix of Denmark celebrated his 20th birthday. Queen Margrethe II’s second grandson is currently on vacation with his dad, Prince Joachim, his stepmother, Princess Marie, his half-brother, Prince Henrik, and his half-sister, Princess Athena. As the Danish royal family is a fan of cycling, Joachim and his children attended this stage which ended in Cahors, not far from the family’s Château de Cayx.

This Friday, July 22, the Grande Boucle took the cycling champions from Castelnau-Magnoac to Cahors. In Cahors, a royal public awaited the arrival of the runners. Prince Joachim, second son of Queen Margrethe II, his wife and their children were happy to be able to attend this finish line, while they are currently staying at the Château de Cayx.

Very impatient to attend this race, Prince Joachim shared a message on the social networks of the Royal House at the start of the afternoon. “We are ready to see the Tour de France riders arrive here in Cahors”wrote the Queen’s second son, accompanying his message with a photo with Princess Marie, Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena.

“For all Danes, this year’s round is special, and like so many others, we applaud Jonas Vingaard very much, who is writing Danish sporting history”, continues Prince Joachim. Indeed, the Tour de France started in Copenhagen this year and stayed for three days in Denmark, much to the delight of Crown Prince Frederik, Joachim’s older brother, who participated closely in each stage. The Tour has joined France and it is Joachim’s turn to ensure a Danish presence on the course.

This Friday, July 22, the stage took the cyclists to Cahors. A few minutes earlier, the peloton passed not far from the Château de Cayx, the vineyard bought by Queen Margrethe II in the summer of 1974. Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and their children are currently staying at the Château de Cayx. Another coincidence, this July 22, Prince Felix, second son of Joachim from his first marriage, celebrates his 20th birthday.

This day of July 22 was the 19th stage of the Tour de France 2022. For the first time since the start of this edition, a Frenchman won a stage. Christophe Laborde covered the 188 km of the day’s stage in 3 hours 52 minutes and 4 seconds, followed within a second by the Belgian Jasper Philipsen. Prince Joachim was very enthusiastic at the end of the day because Dane Jonas Vingegaard, vice-champion of the Tour last year, is currently the yellow jersey and therefore the virtual winner.
