The Danish were furious, especially about the remark about 'going home' as, even though they are well aware of Prince Henrik's roots, he has been living in Denmark for more than half a century after all!!
First there was this Golden Wedding that was not to be celebrated like the RF had done for generations and now there's his openly distancing himself from the country that has always treated him kindly and with respect.
Why, they even pay him 8 million D. Kr. annually for his upkeep, despite the fact that he didn't attend his spouses special birthday celebrations, nor attended official events/State Visits while the whole country can clearly see that the Queen struggles with health issues but dutifully continues to do what she has been brought up to do.
Those who can read/understand Danish will need extra hours today to read all the comments in the Danish media now.
Denmark feels let down!
