Prince Henrik won't be buried at Roskilde Cathedral.


The royal house has today announced that his Royal Highness Prince Henrik does not want to be buried in Roskilde Cathedral, as it has otherwise been planned.

The Prince's decision implies that the Prince will not lie next to her Majesty Queen Margrethe under the sarcophagus that Professor and sculptor Bjørn Nørgaard has prepared.

The Queen has for some time been familiar with the decision of His Royal Highness and agrees with the decision. The Prince's decision does not change the Queen's funeral plans.

The Prince won't be buried in France.

It has been promoted in the media that the Prince wants to be buried in France. This is not correct. The prince still wishes to be buried in Denmark, but the circumstances are not yet in place.
The Prince's changed funeral plans are not due, as the media have otherwise wondered that he should be buried in his native France.

"It has been promoted in the media that the Prince wants to be buried in France. This is not correct. The prince still wishes to be buried in Denmark, but the circumstances are not yet in place.
The royal office communications manager Lene Balleby tells BT that Prince Henrik's decision is due to dissatisfaction with his role in the Danish monarchy.

"The dissatisfaction has grown more and more in recent years. For the Prince, the decision not to be buried beside the Queen is the natural consequence of not having been treated equally in relation to his spouse - by not getting the title and function he has wanted, Lene Balleby says to BT.

Ekstra Bladet has previously written that it costed NOK 29 million to make the chapel clear and make a glass of sarcophagus.
