a private funeral for Prince Henrik

@Danish royal house.   This photo was taken in Egypt shortly before Prince Henrik returned to Denmark 
Prince Henrik's funeral will be held on February 20 at 11:00 am at the church at Christianborg  Palace in Copenhagen.  In accordance with the late prince's wishes, the funeral will be private and not a state occasion.   Only the prince's family and friends will be attending the funeral.

He will be cremated and half his ashes will be scattered into Danish waters and the other half will be buried in the royal private garden at Fredensborg Palace.

The prince was diagnosed with dementia last September but had been ill health for several years.

The palace has released a selection of photos of the late Prince

This seems like a sensible and sensitive solution to a difficult problem.
