DANISH Prince Henrik, Princess Mary’s father-in-law, has been diagnosed with dementia, as the Danish palace says it is the reason for his odd behaviour.
DENMARK’S Prince Henrik, the husband of Queen Margrethe, has been diagnosed with dementia, a condition that has affected his behaviour and judgment, the palace has revealed.
The announcement came weeks after the 83-year-old announced he did not want to be buried next to his wife, saying he was unhappy he had never been acknowledged as her equal.
“Following a longer diagnostic process and lately a series of examinations during late summer, a specialist team … has now concluded that his Royal Highness Prince Henrik suffers from dementia,” the Royal House said in a statement.
“The extent of the cognitive failure is … greater than expected considering the age of The Prince,” it added.
