Denmark’s Royal House Announces Prince Henrik, Husband to Queen, Has Dementia

COPENHAGEN – The husband of the queen of Denmark has been diagnosed as suffering from dementia and is now set to downgrade his public activities, the Danish Royal family said in a statement Wednesday.

Prince Henrik had on Aug. 3 caused controversy by saying he did not want to be buried alongside his wife, Queen Margrethe, because he had never been named king consort.

“A team of specialists at Rigshospitalet has now concluded that His Royal Highness Prince Henrik suffers from dementia,” the statement said.

The 83-year-old has long complained about holding the title of prince instead of being considered an equal to his wife.

The statement added that the diagnosis implied a decline in Henrik’s cognitive functional level.

“The extent of the cognitive failure is, according to Rigshospitalet, greater than expected considering the age of The Prince, and can be accompanied by changes in behaviour, reaction patterns, judgement and emotional life and may therefore also affect the interaction with the outside world,” the royal palace said.

The prince was born as Henri Marie Jean André de Laborde de Monpezat in France in June, 1934, and is father to two sons, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim.
