That's very sad.  I will miss the touch of individuality and interest he gave to the family.  Deepest sympathy to Queen Margrethe, his sons all the family and friends.

According to Ekstra Bladet, Frederik, Joachim and his son Felix arrived at Fredensborg late in the evening.

They left Fredensborg shortly after midnight.

Ekstra Bladet called Prince Henrik's brother....They actually called him. Today.

 

" Prince Henrik's brother shattered
 
- He was a man of many qualities, says Etienne de Monpezat to Ekstra Bladet with tears in his voice.
 
- I have to go, he adds after a very short conversation.
 
Étienne de Monpezat arrived in Denmark Monday. Before that, little sister Catherine de Monpezat arrived, where she visited her brother at Rigshospitalet."

That's the Swedish Order of the Seraphim, so I assume the Seraphim Bell will ring in Sweden on the day of the funeral. Is that right, mls?

Agh. i'm confusing myself. Thanks.

 

Here's what I was looking for

https://translate.google.com.au/translate?hl=en&sl=sv&u=https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serafimerringning&prev=search

 

"Serafimerringning is the ringing of the traditional clock in the Riddarholm church in Stockholm . The bell ringing will continue for an hour between 12:00 and 13:00 and will take place on the funeral day of a knight or member of the Seraphim Order."

You're not the only one....This photo is originally from SVT.se, official Swedish tv channel, with

a comment to it.

 

 
 
"Feels good to know that SVT receives millions more by the state to work against fake news. At least they had it 50 percent correct.
And they placed the two in the correct part of the world. One should be happy for the little things."
