Just saw that the Danish Royal House posted the news on Instagram. What a sad year it has been for the family.

Sad news, may she rest in peace!

Here's the official announcement and information about her life in English:


** kongehuset.dk: Princess Elisabeth of Denmark **


Princess Elisabeth's cremation service will take place at Lyngby Church, then she will be laid to rest beside Claus Hermansen, with whom she had lived in a long-time partnership for 20 years until his death in 1997.

Very sad news. Princess Elisabeth was an extraordinary, wise, passionate, and sophisticated princess who very admirably realized a successful career and, as far as I saw, never put a foot wrong to tarnish the monarchy. A welcome breath of fresh air in the royal family.

Even in our times, it is special and exceptional when a born princess succeeds so well in a civil service career, and HH deserves respect for her commitment to official duties in addition to her professional obligations. I imagine that she was more active as a patron when she was younger, but the obituary does not offer any details. What types of patronages did her duties center on?


It is lovely that the official obituary recognizes her longtime partner, the late Claus Hermansen (even if it glosses over the Queen's insistence that the Princess would lose her title and be removed from the Royal House if she married a commoner, the basis for the couple's choice not to get married).

Yes. However it was my impression she wasn't that happy towards the end. That she was waiting to die. That there really wasn't that much more for her to do.
Dying in your bed surrounded by those nearest and dearest to you, is a good way to go.

Joachim is the one who is closest to that branch of the family, albeit mostly Count Ingolf. I don't know if he was that close to Elisabeth.

I expect the DRF to be well represented, but I'm not sure they will all be present at the funeral.

I hope that we this time will be spared photos of grieving children!

Oh very sad news. I agree with you Tatiana Maria and thank you for taking the time to write all that for us.
I always looked forward to seeing photos of the Princess at gala events.
A sad time for her family and for her cousin the Queen.

RIP Princess Elisabeth.


Was the Princess ill as we didn't see much of her of late?

She was pretty frail. Not least having problems walking. I don't even think she went upstairs in the house where she lived at Sorgenfri.
It was also my clear impression she felt lonely. - As you get older your circle of friends tends to shrink. Either because they die, end up in a rest home or become more or less immobile.

Why did the Queen insist that Princess Elisabeth would be removed from the Royal House if she married a commoner when the Queen’s two sons and the Queen herself married commoners ? It doesn’t Make a lot of sense.

What sad news, may she rest in peace. I was already worried about her when she wasn't on the guest list for Frederik's birthday. She will be missed.

Presumably it was the rule at the time...

At least QMII is to take part in the funeral.
She has postponed her transfer of residence to Marselisborg in Aarhus, for that very reason.

Princess Elisabeth will be buried from Lyngby Kirke.

Here she was baptized and confirmed and here she will lie beside her partner in life, Claus Hermansen.

It will be the former royal confessionarius, Erik Norman Svendsen, who will perform the ceremony.

Here are some photos from the church:

https://dedanskeskirker.dk/wp-conten...7-810x1080.jpg
http://www.8570.dk/image_www/images/...r/IMG_6158.JPG

Lyngby Kirke was build in the middle of the 1100's, and typical for the time it was placed on a low hill, dominating the landscape. - Partly to appear even more impressive and partly because churches also served as refuges for locals when there were raids. And the present day east Germans, Poles and Prussians did a lot of raiding back then!
Another reasons for such a prominent location was that churches also served as a landmark. Especially along the coasts, but also inland, where there were few and very poor roads. And when the landscape was covered in snow, it was easy to lose your bearing, because there were no roads to be seen!

I would be surprised if the Queen didn't attend the funeral of her first cousin who, in addition, was officially a princess of Denmark.
