Remembering Prince Henrik

Prince Henrik passed away peacefully last evening following a short illness. A jovial character, he will be remembered as a  colorful and complicated prince, poet, pianist, diplomat, wine maker, linguist, husband, father and grandfather known for his frank and forthright approach to life and love for his family. We offer Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik, Prince Joachim and the rest of the Danish royal family wishes for peace and comfort as they mourn his loss.

  1. I’m surprised that looking at many photos today of Henrik, particularly when he was younger, I’m only now seeing how much Freddie resembles his Dad. It’s a shame that, publicly at least, his last couple of years were a bit controversial. But the galleries of photos show someone who had bonhomie and clearly loved his family (that’s a marvellous shot with Joachim’s boys) – and boy, did he have some great hats!

  2. Controversies aside, Prince Henrik was a man who could wear many hats well, and certainly was among the most fashionable royal men in Europe who wasn’t afraid of some color and patterns (something I really appreciate). Dementia and the quick breakdown of a loved one’s health are not easy things; thoughts and prayers are with the Danish royals at this time.

    Random side note: At first I thought Sonja was wearing the most massive fur hat I’ve ever seen, but then I realized her own hat was just being haloed by the hat/hood of the person behind her.

  3. That’s lovely. He and QM still had a very strong and devoted relationship, even with his recent behaviour (caused by his dementia I imagine.) So a very sad day for her and the rest of the family.

    And he knew how to rock many a hat!!
