Sad news - the youngest of the three siblings to die first. The couple have certainly been very hard hit.

The obituaries are yet to come!

Count Christian, originally Prince Christian was the younger son of Prince Knud, himself a younger brother of King Frederik IX. The fact that Prince Knud and his descendants were sidelined after the change of the succession Act in 1953 is probably covered elsewhere on TRF.
While Knud was said to be bitter about the outcome, his children took a more pragmatic view. Christian always stayed loyal to HM and he and Countess Anne-Dorthe were fixtures at the big royal events before their health began to deteriorate some five-six years ago.
Christian was a naval officer like his father and uncle and retired from the Royal Danish Navy ten years ago. He married Anne-Dorthe Maltoft-Nielsen in 1971 and renounced his title and succession rights.
Prince Christian and his wife were said to be friendly and approachable. They appeared to be the life and soul of many a good party.

She's suffering from cancer in the larynx. I understand from an article in our royalty magazine that she's spent time in a hospice lately. It need not mean that she's a terminal patient but that she's in need of extensive care. But .. reading between the lines I get the impression that she's in a bad way.

He and his wife often attended the big family celebrations. Apart from that I don't think that they met often in private. But your guess is as good as mine!

I cannot imagine HM and HRH not attending! I suppose that the younger generation will attend if they're not otherwise engaged.

Ekstra Bladet reports that Count Christian's daughter Camilla confirmed that the funeral will take place at 11am on May 29th at Lyngby Church.

Queen Margrethe, Princess Benedikte and Crown Prince Frederik all have engagements on that day (the Queen's is in the early afternoon), so it will be interesting to see who attends the funeral.

CP Frederik is in St. Petersburg, so he's out! CP Mary is in Malaysia 28 - 30. May so she's out! HM has an engagement at. 1.55 pm. It seems to take place in the Copenhagen area. IMHO she's certainly able to attend an 11 a.m funeral (duration approx. 1 hour incl. interment), get a quick bite and change for the meeting of the board of representatives of the rheumatism association. If she wants to, that is!

Perhaps he has some business to attend to in connection with running the farm?
I understand Joachim is pretty close to Count Ingolf, so I would not expect Joachim to come up with an "excuse" unless there is a very good reason.

I don't see that happening, but You never know! The Norwegians used to have links with other branches of the Rosenborgs.
