Dan­ish queen’s hus­band has de­men­tia

Truro Daily News - - WORLD -

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.
