Prince Felix of Denmark, 19, follows in his brother Prince Nikolai’s footsteps as he makes his modelling debut by posing for a jewellery brand
Prince Felix of Denmark is the latest royal to try their hand at a modelling career, having quit his military training after just two months.
The Danish royal, 19, who is the younger son of Prince Joachim – Crown Prince Frederick’s younger brother – has posed in a series of moody snaps for jeweller Georg Jensen’s new Reflect collection.
The eight in line to the throne follows in the footsteps of his older brother, Prince Nikolai, 22, who posed for Vogue Scandinavia earlier this month.
At the end of last year, he started training at the Royal Danish Military Academy to become an Army Lieutenant, but in October it was announced that he’d quit after just two months because it ‘wasn’t for him’.
No further detail was given about his plans for the future, but it now seems the youngster is eyeing up a career in modelling.

Prince Felix chose to make his modelling debut for jeweller Georg Jensen, appearing in pictures and an advert promoting the new Reflect collection of necklaces, earrings and rings.
Prince Felix wears two necklaces, a bracelet and a bangle which are ranging in price from €396 (£330) and €920 (£768).

Since the 19-year-old is further down the line of succession, pursuing his own career path rather than being a ‘working royal’ was expected choice for Felix, and modelling is certainly a popular choice for minor royals across the globe.

British royal Lady Amelia Windsor was the cover girl for Tatler twice and modelled for Dolce & Gabbana in 2017 and 2019.
The royal Monegasques, grandchildren of Princess Grace, Hollywood actress-turned-royalty Grace Kelly, all inherited her photogenic genetics, with Charlotte Casiraghi modelling for Gucci and Pierre Casiraghi for Dior Homme.
But Felix need look no further that his older brother Prince Nikolai for inspiration.
Now 22, he debuted his wavy chocolate locks down the Burberry runway at London Fashion Week in 2018, and has since gone on to grace the cover of Vogue Scandanavia.
Royal fans gushed over the 22-year-old Prince, who oozed charm in a pink Dior jacket on the cover, calling him a ‘handsome’ and ‘stunning’ model.
The prince appears on the cover for February-March 2022 issue of Vogue Scandinavia which celebrates the experience of growing up in a region with kings and queens, princes and princesses.

Nikolai has charmed the fashion world, racking up runway appearances and magazine covers since his debut – after signing a modelling contract with Scoop Models in Denmark when aged 18.
Nikolai, who also has the title Count of Monpezat, made his modelling debut at Burberry’s autumn-winter 2018 show.
He’s walked alongside Cara Delevingne on the runway and strutted his stuff before a front row that included Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Michelle Dockery, Naomi Watts, Zendaya, and Idris Elba.
Speaking to the magazine, he recalled how his royal life had somewhat prepared him for the catwalk: ‘I’m used to the press and the cameras… to being a public figure all my life.’
The prince – who also candidly admitted it is usually his own mother who cuts his stylish hair – currently studies at the Copenhagen Business School, but is on a semester abroad in Paris.
Recalling how his family reacted to his decision to model, he said: ‘No one was against it. Of course, I had to explain myself – I’d have to do that with whatever I do.
