Danish Prince Would Rather Be Called "king"

Prince Henrik of Denmark, married since 1967 to Queen Margrethe, would prefer to be known as "king," reports said Thursday.

In an interview with the weekly Point de Vue published in his native France, Henrik appeared to air some of his frustration with being known as "prince" instead of "king", according to Copenhagen tabloid Ekstra Bladet

I think he shoud shutt his mouth and be glad that he is prince consort Henrik...A big part of the danish population woud never call him king because he will never be king of Denmark.. i also think that ther is alot of the danish population who think that he shoud go back to France and stay ther for good...ther he has his own castle and ther he can be callede King Henri 1. of Caix

Is Henrik an unpopular man in your country?
I have always thought that he seemed a little eccentric, but disliked?

I did think his comment about being in third place behind his wife the Queen, and his son Crown Prince Frederik to be a little pompous (and immature) as he is, afterall, a member of the Royal family by marriage not by blood and should be grateful for any title that he is given. JMO.

In my opinion, the Danish population is beginning to see HRH The Prince Consort as a person and an important figure in the life of HM The Queen rather than as a sophisticated French who has had some difficulties regarding the Danish language. As I see it, The Prince Consort is getting increasingly popular.

The fact that Henrik, The Prince Consort, is seen primarily as a figure in the life of Margrethe, The Queen, is also the basis of the article in question. Ekstra Bladet does its best to make it sound as if The Prince Consort has expressed a desire to be given title of King of Denmark, seeing that he is married to a queen. I have not read the entire article, but from the various quotations to be found online, it is not possible to conclude that Prince Henrik wants to be king.

The Prince Consort concludes that, “Today, a king’s wife gets the title of queen. But a reigning queen’s husband does not become king by marriage” and that, “The public is inclined to only acknowledge The Queen. Thus, the one-to-one relationship becomes unbalanced, not privately, but in the eyes of the public”.

If His Royal Highness had delivered any statement directly referring to him wishing to be king, it would have been published by Ekstra Bladet, but the above quotations are the most “incriminating” ones in the Point de Vue article.

Yesterday, a package found in a sentry box at Christiansborg Palace, addressed for the private secretary to The Queen from a company in Germany. The package arose some suspicion and the police was called to the scene. The package was examined by the bomb squad and declared safe. When it was opened, it turned out that it was a pretty hat for Her Majesty The Queen. Luckily, the bomb squad’s dogs showed the package to be safe, otherwise, it might have been destroyed. The hat was sent to the lost properties office of central Copenhagen, but will probably be sent forward to The Queen today.

I know that ther is alot of Danes who don´t like him because he is not speaking oure language very good and because has said that he think that it is so sad that he has to be in third line as you say...tha fact is that he will end at 4. maby 5. place if Mary and Frederik are going to have more children.
He has always knowend that when Frederik and Jocachim became olde and marriede and had children Henrik woud not have that mutch press attension as he had befor Frederik and Joachim were born.

Alot of Danes think that he is a fool when he are complaning over his lifestyle and that the Danes don´t like him to a journalist.

And as you say he is not royal by blood but royal by his marriage to Queen Margrethe and therfor he woud never be callede King Henrik in Denmark.

a textbook example of hypocracy:

the Danish media was so up on their high horses of freedom of speech when the muslim world was offended by the Mohamud cartoons.

obviously this high and mighty Danish media can't handle prince Henrik's human right to freedom of speech.

i'd suggest prince Henrik and the queen to pour themselves a nice cognac, have a silent laugh at the media and wish them to go take a hike.

Why in the world would Prince Henrik think he should be line for the throne. He is married to the Queen but has not rights to the throne. I also think that if he wants to be in line or named king , he should learn Danish. How would he give the Christmas message if he does not speak Danish.

a textbook example of ignorance and prejudice:

accuse a man for claiming something someone else, not fluent in English, has commented on. bring him further down to his heels by attacking his, in some people's opinion, rather charming accent.

Ekstra Bladet and other media’s recent misinterpretations of Prince Henrik’s statements in Point de Vue have yet again elicited some debate as to the ‘place’ of a prince consort in the Danish Monarchy.

HRH The Prince Consort is not and in line for the Danish throne and never will be. However, according to Danish court protocol, the spouse of the monarch is always second in terms of status, only surpassed by the monarch. When Frederik and Mary will reign, I am confident that Mary will be seen as number two by all because her husband holds the title of king and she that of queen.

In conclusion, HRH Henrik, The Prince Consort of Denmark is in fact ‘number two’, followed by HRH The Crown Prince, preceded by HM The Queen.

Today the danish national hospital - Rigshospitalet - celebrated their 250 years birthday. I was there to get some medicine for my mother and when I came back to the lobby I suddenly stood face to face with the Queen and prince Henrik (and a couple of million of others) all on their way to an reception. As I didn't know about the birthday I was quite surprised to see the Queen that close to me. Anyway - the best part of the story is that there was free food and drinks - a good thing for a poor student like me!

I think Prince Henrik should be there with the whole family, is a big disrespect IMO not to be there and be sailling in Mallorca.

Be there for what? Margrethe's birthday isn't until Monday, and as stated in the press release posted by Lasse, he'll be there then. He was there over Easter with the rest of the family, walked on the beach with Joachim, Marie, Nikolai and Felix. Why shouldn't he have some time to sail if he wants?

Biboquinhas,

Prince Henrik does have engagements and I believe also patronages. If you go to the Danish Royal Watchers site and browse through past months, you can see many of the activities that Henrik does.

It might just be me, but I feel that he has plenty of protectorates and organizations he's involved it.

Just because one doesn't see as often a picture of him, or other male members of the Danish royal family, here on these forums as one does with the females, it doesn't mean that he isn't active for Denmark.

And as for the family gathering - I had presumed that to be over once Easter was done. I can't see Nikolai and Felix staying home from school and kindergarten to be with their family, and Prince Joachim has a farm to keep track of.
