Queen Margrethe II Weeps During The Funeral Of Prince Henrik
February 21, 2018 12:47
Prince Henrik, husband to Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, has passed away last week. He died in his sleep while convalescing at Fredensborg Castle. Earlier in 2017, the Prince Consort had been diagnosed with dementia.
The French-born monarch is famous for his refusal to be buried beside his wife, breaking a centuries-old tradition. His reason was that the ‘Prince Consort’ title was degrading as he expected to be named King. Many Danes found this distasteful.
