Prince Joachim of Denmark is on the road to recovery following emergency surgery for a blood clot on his brain.
The 51-year-old royal – who was treated at the University Hospital of Toulouse in France on Saturday – is “expected to be moved from the intensive care unit soon,” the Royal House announced in a statement on Tuesday.
“After the recent days of hospitalization and treatment in the intensive care unit, it is now the doctors’ assessment that Prince Joachim will not have physical or other consequences as a result of the blood clot,” the statement continues.
“The blood clot in the brain was due to a sudden dissection of an artery, and the hospital’s medical team estimates that the risk of recurrence is very small once the artery has healed.
“Prince Joachim is expected to be moved from the intensive care unit soon but will continue to be hospitalized
