The wording of the funeral invitation sent to Denmark's Queen and Crown Prince was such that it was understood that Margrethe's Australian-born daughter-in-law Mary --ironically the only continental royal who grew up as a subject of Queen Elizabeth II-- would be able to accompany her husband.
The British Foreign Office apologized for the misunderstanding. A mistake in the invitation to Queen Margrethe made it appear as if the Queen's guest, Crown Prince Frederik, could bring a guest. According to the British Foreign Office, the error occurred because they had to send out many invitations within a short time.
