Prince Joachim and his fiancée Marie Cavallier were visiting Roskilde Cathedral as part of Marie's familiarisation with Denmark last week when there was a little trouble as they left. They were accosted by an unknown man. A film crew is trailing the couple while making a TV show which will focus on Marie which will be broadcast just before their wedding on May 24. They visited the graves of Joachim's grandparents Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid and laid flowers. On their way out, a man called out Joachim's name and chased the royal car as Joachim and Marie left.

Prince Joachim and his fiancée, Marie Cavallier had a private visit to Roskilde Cathedral. When the couple left the cathedral an unknown man shouted after the Prince and Marie. A couple of days ago Roskilde Cathedral was contactd by the DRF to arrange a visit from Prince Joachim and his intended, Marie Cavallier.
The visit was part of Marie's introduction to her new role as a Princess of Denmark. The couple had an opportunity to put flowers on the grave of King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid.
The Royal couple were recieved by the Dean of Roskilde.
There was a bit of drama when the Royal couple was leaving the Cathedral in the Royal car, Crown 20, as an unknown man started to shout "Joachim". The couple continued towards the car. When the car started the unknown man started running along with the car and followed it for a few yards.
A TV crew followed the couple during their visit to the church as part of the making of a documentary.
