Amalienborg, 21 February 2018

For me and my family, it has been deeply moving to experience the warmth and sympathy that has flowed from all parts of Danish society in connection with Prince Henry’s death and funeral. The many beautiful flowers spontaneously laid down at the places where the Prince was, the many thousands of people from near and far who opposed the winter cold to show the Prince the last glory in the castle church and the countless written sympathetic expressions we have received, has touched us all deeply and is instrumental in helping us through this difficult time.

For all these beautiful testimonies of devotion and compassion, I and my family wish to express our heartfelt thanks to all the Danish people.
