Prince Henrik of Denmark passes away at 83

Prince Henrik Of Denmark

Prince Henrik briefly won support in the Danish parliament as part of a movement which eventually came to nothing, following a referendum in 2009 that backed sexual equality in royal successions.

Queen Margrethe and the couple's two sons, Prince Frederick and Prince Joachim, were with Prince Henrik when he died at the royal residence Fredensborg Palace, on the Danish island of Zealand, a palace statement said.

In 2002, he made headlines when he fled to his chateau in southern France to "reflect on life", complaining he didn't receive enough respect in Denmark after his son, Crown Prince Frederik, was chosen to represent the queen at a New Year's ceremony instead of him.

Prince Henrik has passed away after being diagnosed with a benign tumour a fortnight ago. The queen already had a designed-just-for-them sarcophagus at Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark.

Slovenia woke up in the third and dominated the first six minutes, leading to a Blaz Gregorc goal that cut the lead in half. For 40 minutes things went swimmingly for the star-less US men's hockey team in its Olympic opener against Slovenia .

Last year, the palace announced the 83-year-old prince was suffering from dementia, and was last seen in public for grandson Prince Nikolai's 18th birthday in August last year.

His eldest son, Crown Prince Frederik, left the Winter Olympics and returned to Denmark to be by his father's side on February 9.

Henri became Henrik and converted to Denmark's state Lutheran Church. However, he found it hard to fit in with Denmark's egalitarian lifestyle. In Denmark, if a princess is given the title of Queen, her husband does not automatically gain the title of king.

As a member of Denmark's royal family, he held honorary ranks of general in the Danish army and air force, and was an admiral in the navy. He was made Prince Consort in 2005, and in 2008, both of Margrethe and Henrik's sons were conferred the title "Count of Monpezat". He was 83 years old.

I don't think we're going to change much, we're just going to do what we've done all season. Firmino, 26, has enjoyed a fine campaign, scoring 20 goals in all competitions this season.

He said he felt "pushed aside, degraded and humiliated".

"For many years I have been No. 2", Henrik told Danish local tabloid B.T.

"For many years I have been Denmark's number two", He said at the time.

Henri, as he was then known, spent his first five years in Vietnam while his father was employed there.

After his move to Denmark, Henrik, a keen pianist, was active in different organizations and wrote poetry, memoirs and books, including a coffee table book on French gastronomy in 1999.
