If Henrik's physical health is stable, i.e., he is able to move about at will, use the telephone, he is doing exactly what he wants and they have to indulge him to keep a sense of calm around him.
This seems to be a situation out of control and he apparently has decided (in his condition) to settle a lot of old scores.
If you all will indulge me a moment, I have experience something similar in my extended family. My cousin had to be placed in a facility due to Alzheimer's. This cousin had periods of calm and could carry on conversations. But when his wife went to visit him, he, for some reason, lashed out at her in front of everyone and accused her of "conspiring" with the medical people to have him incarcerated (his words). It was devastating for the whole family.
This scenario could be playing out with any number of people who surround the prince.
If the Prince were not ill and in full possession of his faculties, I believe there would have been some kind of statement by now. This refusal by the Court/government to comment publicly is what is baffling. They show no interest in tamping down the worldwide media coverage on this. And that usually is the first rule for professional PR people. "Get ahead of the story," is their mantra.
: As has been mentioned here plenty times befor:
: there are several people working for Prince
: "His Court"or "his
: staff". They are mentioned on the guest
: lists of various royal events (even if he is
: not present himself !!) so, why don't we
: hear a word from them?
: Why don't they defend the Prince?
: Why don't they try to create a 'shield'
: between the media and the Prince?
: What is their function actually?
: Chief of Court of HRH Prince Henrik, museum
: director, Michael Bjørn Nellemann
: Chief of Secretariat to HRH Prince Henrik,
: Major Nils Nykjær
: Secretary to HRH Prince Henrik Olivier
: Secretary Marianne Gøttsche Dupont
