  1. Death of HRH Prince Henrik

    I am honestly shocked that they would print such a thing. The corcumstances of Prince Henrik's choices with regard to his funeral are well known. No-one would believe that sort of rubbish, so why print it?
  2. Death of HRH Prince Henrik

    Translation: "For me and my family, it has been deeply moving to experience the warmth and sympathy that has flowed from all parts of Denmark's society in connection with Prince Henrik's death and funeral. The many beautiful flowers spontaneously laid down by the places where the Prince had been, the many thousands of people from near and distant who endured the winter cold to show the Prince the last respects in the castle church and the countless written messages of sympathetic expressions we have received have touched us all deeply and contributed to helping us through this difficult time. For all these beautiful testimonies of affection and compassion, my family and I wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the whole Danish population."
  3. Prince Henrik's funeral

    Yes, the numbers were kept to 60 invited guests. Therefore no nieces and nephews from either side of the family attended, and none of the close friends from other royal houses, in keeping with Prince Henrik's wishes, so it was smaller than a funeral for an ordinary citizen. Did you notice the man sitting in the back next to Countess Alexandra? That was Fritz Schur - the one invited friend to represent all of Prince Henrik's friends. We have seen him taking F&M's children to plays at Tivoli over the years. https://www.bt.dk/royale/klar-til-net-og-print-kongehuset-derfor-var-fritz-schur-med-til-prins-henriks
  4. Prince Henrik's funeral

    Thanks mls. BT reports https://www.bt.dk/royale/henriks-doed-aendrede-tradition-hos-svensk-kongefamilie-prinsessens-foedselsdag that the Swedish Royal Court postponed the publication of 4th birthday photos of Princess Leonore yesterday morning, out of respect for Prince Henrik's funeral. I noticed that Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden wore dark blue at the event in Lithuania marking the country's 100th anniversary of independence. This is the same event Crown Princess Mary was originally scheduled to attend.

    Yes, there is a period of mourning that the whole royal court will observe for a month, Hannelore. The press release mentioned ... We don't yet know which activities will take place until the calendar is updated at kongehuset.dk
