Re: Official Protest by Prince Knud in 1953
Through a new docu-drama about the life of King Frederik 9 a few totally new historical facts has been uncovered.
One is that Prince Knud in 1953 asked to have his official protest against the new Throne Following Law recored in the records of the Council of State. He felt it was against the treaties and traditions. He knew of course knew this would not change anything as the new Constitution was passed through the rightful channels. https://www.dr.dk/nyheder/indland/da-margrethe-blev-tronfoelger-prins-knud-protesterede-i-statsraadet
The series at Denmark's Radio Televison (DRTV) is a very good mix of historical facts told by historians, "drama-initiations" of the evens and interviews with the Queen and Crown Prince.
Trond Norén isaksen mentions the protest in an article in the latest issue (February 2020) of Majesty.
