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

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

The Danish royals also released a sweet photograph of Joachim reunited with his older brother Crown Prince Frederik in France last month, following Joachim's hospital stay.
