Denmark's Prince Consort does not want to be buried with his wife when the time comes
极难 1941

近日亨里克亲王表示他不希望自己去世后和女王同葬,而这一做法将会打破王室传统。

Denmark's Prince Consort Henrik, the French-born husband of Queen Margrethe II, does not want to be buried with his wife when the time comes, breaking with tradition, the royal palace said Thursday. 
 
Long vocal about his frustration over being relegated to a supporting role, the 83-year-old prince said he was not on equal footing with his wife in life and therefore did not want to be so in death 
 
That decision has been accepted by the queen, the palace's communications chief Lene Balleby told Danish daily BT. 
 
A second palace spokesman confirmed the accuracy of the newspaper report to AFP but provided no other details. 
 
Disappointed that his royal title of prince consort was never changed to king when his wife became queen in 1972, Henrik has often spoken out about his discontent, which did little to endear him to his subjects. 
 
The couple will break with royal tradition by not being buried together in the Roskilde Cathedral. 
 
The prince consort nonetheless intends to be buried in Denmark. 
 
He "loves Denmark and worked for Denmark for more than 50 years. The prince therefore wants to be buried in Denmark, but the details have not been settled yet," Balleby said.
