I imagine the burial of PH's urn at Fredensborg will be very private.
They can wait til summer with the spreading of ashes over the seas of Denmark. So it can be done from Dannebrog

This means that the church takes part in the sorrow over the death of Prince Henrik and mourn him. As with all funerals the church bells toll when the casket is taken from the church to the grave. It´s a sign of respect for the diseased.

To mention PH at a service - well, all priests (should) mention the Queen and the DRF in the Sunday prayer. Again it´s a sign of respect towards QMII and the Danes.

Can you imagine: the Ambassadeur de France, M François Zimeray, assembles in the Palais Thott (the fabulous residence where that banner was hanged) and meets his staff: "Mesdames, messieurs, the Prince has died. What can we do to honour him?"

And then someone puts up the idea to create that banner. "D'accord!" says the Ambassadeur. Then someone has to find a picture, another one has to find a befitting line which characterizes the Prince. Then a company has to be found which can print the banner. And of course the firm Ringsted Liftudlejning Aps has to be contacted to hang it safely at the façade of the Palais Thott: "Send the bill to the Ambassade de France, s'il vous plaît."

It is really touching. The Ambassade coud have done it with a meaningless twat on Twitter.

It's more than likely that the idea came from Paris, probably from the Elysée itself.
The Archives nationales were eager to share some letters between the Prince and the Général de Gaulle as well :

Lettre du prince Henrik de Danemark au Général de Gaulle - Noblesse & Royautés

Henrik's motherland didn't forget him. Touching tribute.

touching indeed that france remembered henrik. sweet detail on the banner. in fact, it hang at palais thott, where henrik celebrated his 80th birthday at a ceremony that they organised, where margrethe and marie attended. :)

very fitting!

perhaps his wishes on the small ceremony came precisely from the frustrations he experienced during royal life. had he not had these frustrations, maybe we would have seen today a very different set of ceremonies for his funeral.

Press release from the swedish royal court
H.M. The king has decided that the flag at the Royal Palace will be at half mast on H.R.H. Prince Henrik of Denmark's funeral day on February 20th.
When the funeral ceremony is completed, the flag is fully raised.

The flag above the Tower of London will also be at half mast today in honor of PH.

The TV coverage has started on both public service channels.
You should be able to watch it all at this link: https://www.dr.dk/tv/live/dr1

Billed Bladet will also show live, but they will have fewer cameras, but at least also fewer journalists talking like they were possessed!
You should find the BB link here somewhere on this page:
BILLED-BLADET Play - Danmarks royale TV - Videoer med de kongelige

Here is a photo of PH's casket at Amalienborg, where it has been guarded by four conscripts from the Royal Lifeguard and from the crew of Dannebrog. As well as an NCO: https://www.instagram.com/p/BfQQVZjn...embed_ufi_test

Most unusual the flags above Amalienborg will remain at half mast until 18.00 - i.e. after sunset. Which is usually a big no no! Unless Dannebrog is illuminated.

At Christiansborg Palace Church. PH's casket will ten be guarded by officers of various rank, 24/7 until it is time for the funeral.

The reasons why there will be an honor company from Jutland Dragoons at the Church is that Prinsens Livregiment, which is now amalgamated into Jutland Dragoons was directly affiliated to PH.
(Dronningens Livregiment, which is also amalgamated, was affiliated to the queen consorts, and as such to Queen Ingrid.)

has the RF had to cancel any official events as a result of henrik's death and the funeral? i notice that their calendar is empty during the days before and until the 20th. i know frederik cancelled his attendance to the winter olympics but was wondering if other events had to be cancelled too, or whether the agenda was conveniently free at this period. i am just curious about the protocol when these events happen. i assume it is the done thing to cancel any engagements until the funeral, but i may be wrong.

Yes, QMII cancelled three events and Mary cancelled a trip to Lithuania, celebrating it's 100th anniversary.

Watching the live link from DR1, (posted in an earlier post) Right now the last general rehearsal is taking place at Christiansborg.
In 18 minutes the funeral cortege will leave Amalienborg.

The drive is expected to last 15 minutes.

The kids are on school holidays this week and the week tends to be pretty empty apart from possible events QM has.

The honor company from Jutland Dragoons is lining up.
Complete with music corps and standard (estandart), not a colour because this is a cavalry regiment. An estandart is the third the size of a colour, since it is supposed to by carried by in this case a mounted dragoon.
Jutland dragoons no longer have horses, but main battle tanks.

They will play a funeral march.

The court is officially in mourning. It's up to the Monarch to decide how long the mourning period lasts.
In this case one month.

That means that the DRF will not take part in celebrations and festive events.
It also means the DRF will wear dark clothes in the mourning period.

The procession route is lined by police officers wearing black caps. Or more correctly caps without the white cover they usually use on festive occasions.

5 minutes to go.

Running commentary in this post.

The church bells have started tolling.

---------------

The crew from Dannebrog has lined up, showing their last respect for PH. The captain of Dannebrog is the Monarchs personal captain. And the most honorable command a navy officer can have.

-------------

The procession leaves now.

--------------

The Colour March is played as a salute.

--------------------

When the cars pass the Yellow Mansion next to Amalienborg, the court employees, who work in the administration there, bow.

-----------

Many if not most men along the route remove their caps and hats.

--------------------------

Approaching the French embassy.

-----------------

The popular French ambassador bowed slightly for the cars.

--------------

Closing in on The Naval Church, that is so closely linked to the DRF.

------------------

Closing in on Christiansborg. The funeral march is played.

---------------

There. The honor guard has lowered their estandart.

-------------

A very symbolic image. QMII standing alone until her family joined her.

---------------------

The bearers are all veterans from wars. Some will have tried this before...

--------------

The coffin is piped in. The grief of the DRF is respected. No frontal photos.

----------

A private ceremony at the church will now take place for the DRF.

And that's it.

I'll now leave it to our renowned newsdiggers to find and post clips and pics.

I noticed while watching the live feed that as the royal family entered the church behind the coffin Nikolai and Felix did not follow them in. They turned off to the side as the inner church doors closed.

I was fine until I saw the solitary figure of Queen Margrethe watching her husband's coffin as it was removed from the hearse. That's when I started sobbing.

I've been watching the live feed from DR1 and that image of QMII standing alone waiting for her family to join her was so moving and symbolic.

Thanks for keeping us so informed Muhler

It's over. The DRF are returning to Amalienborg and as such it's a normal transport, so they stop for red lights.

Despite the traffic lights and dimmed light because this took place after sunset, it actually worked IMO.

The darkness reinforced the somber atmosphere making it very special.

Sweet to see Athena holding Nikolai's hand.

- I also noted that Nikolai and Felix went separately. Perhaps they were to do something special, like singing? Their mother is very fond of singing. Or perhaps Alexandra were among the invited guests and they joined her?
