Danish prince refuses to be buried with his wife, the queen

August 14, 2017

According to the BBC:

Prince Henrik of Denmark will not be buried next to his wife Queen Margrethe, royal officials say, with the prince unhappy at never being designated her equal.

The 83-year-old has long complained at being named as prince rather than king.

It had been expected that the pair would be buried together in a specially-designed sarcophagus at Roskilde Cathedral.

The queen, 77, is said to have accepted her husband’s decision.

The royal house said despite rumours to the contrary the prince wants to be buried in Denmark rather than France.
