Notwithstanding my personal opinion, congratulations to all of those who are pleased with the results! I hope the change will somehow be useful to the Kingdom (or Queendom, for that matter ).

As far as I remember the wording was:

Du you think that the law of succession to the throne shall be changed?

Yes?

No?


The wording has been the subject ot discussion, as it was not explained what the change was about. Some voters was bewildered and quit frankly I think the wording was a mess made by knowledgeably people at the ministry of state.

Here's an article (in Swedish) that talks about the discussion and debate in Denmark regarding changing Prince Henrik's title to King:

Victoria och Daniel - www.gd.se

It says that some of the political parties are open to discussion about changing his title, while others are not. It interviews a member of the "Danish People's Party" who says that parliament will never be able to agree, so they may as well drop the idea.

And here's another article (in English):
