Danish queen’s husband has dementia
COPENHAGEN — The husband of Queen Margrethe is suffering from dementia, the Danish royal household said Wednesday.
The palace said the 83-yearold French-born Prince Henrik had undergone a medical examination at Copenhagen’s university hospital. Doctors concluded “the extent of the cognitive failure is greater than expected” for the prince, it said, adding this can lead to changes in behaviour, reactions, judgment and emotions.
Henrik last month caused a stir by saying he won’t be buried next to the monarch in a specially designed sarcophagus.
