Danish Queen's Husband Refuses to Be Buried with Her

CryptPrince Henrick of Denmark is refusing to be buried next to his wife, Queen Margrethe. Margrethe had a custom-made glass sarcophagus created for her and her husband of fifty years as a final resting place. The sarcophagus will eventually be installed at Roskilde Cathedral, which has been home to deceased Danish royals for over four centuries.

Henrick’s general dissatisfaction with his current title has been publicly known for many years. The Royal Danish House’s director speculated: "For the prince, the decision not to be buried beside the queen is the natural consequence of not having been treated equally to his spouse."
