Prince Henrik's funeral

56 posts in this topic

Looks as if the Queen began to cry quite heavily at the end. I wonder if that's why no photos of the inside of the church at this point?

Well, the criticism with his position or the lack of it, and all that.

This is what the DR site said (translated by google): 

The love of the family was foolish

Now Erik Norman Svendsen touches on the criticism of his status, as Prince Henrik performed for years. But it did not destroy the love of the family. 

- His criticism filled a lot with the slots and shared a transition to the population in two - You agreed with the prince and those who disagreed. But the prince himself remained unsuccessful in his case and defended it temperently. 

"But when the words were said, he met his sons and the wife with a smile. His love for the family was disgusted by his criticism of his role, says Erik Normann Svendsen.

They're preparing the coffin for travel which they don't show.

I think I read that there would not be photos or the part where the officers lift the casket would not be shown for "practical" reasons

or something like that.

Really impressed by the children.  Their behaviour was impeccable.  There is a lot to be proud of in all these young royals.

Is a period of mourning now respected by the members of the royal family, will they not take part in activities for a certain amount of time?

Yes, there is a period of mourning that the whole royal court will observe for a month, Hannelore. 

The press release mentioned ...

Quote

 

... the Court will be in mourning until Wednesday, 14 March.

"In the period of mourning, Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family and the Court will not participate in social or entertainment events.

During the Court mourning, dark clothing will be worn at public appearances. Personnel in uniform will wear black armbands on the upper part of the left arm."

 

We don't yet know which activities will take place until the calendar is updated at kongehuset.dk
