Queen Margrethe and Prince Consort took part in the funeral of Countess Anne Dorte of Rosenborg.
It has been seven months since the last time they were there. Now they were there again. The three former komtesser of Rosenborg and their families at Lyngby Church, and this time as orphans.
 
In May the three girls buried their father, Count Christian of Rosenborg, who was cousin to Queen Margrethe - Today they bisatte their mother, Countess Anne Dorte.
 
The three girls are heartbroken, and although their grief is overwhelming, they invited friends and family, and Queen Margrethe and Prince Consort were welcomed to a church service, which was marked by "smile through tears", for there were very festive words said about Countess Anne Dorte and the life she lived.
 
She was just 66 years old, when she died. The 2nd January, she told her daughters that it would be today. And it was. And it was a relief for the Countess, who has long been ill, and especially missed her man throughout his long life.
 
Her eldest grandson singing beautifully the song "You are beautiful" by James Blunt in the church, while her father, Michael Rosanes, gave a great talk about the Countess's life.

The local parish minister Julie Goldschmidt officiated, underlining the countess's passion for life, how she regarded her life as a fairy tale which began when marrying Prince Christian in 1971 in the same church. The sermon was based on Matthew 2, 2-12 about the three magi, comparing the three daughters to the three magi with their identical confusion and identical unity on their life's journey. 'Together in happiness, together in sorrow, together no mattter what in the past, the present and the future; that's a tradition in your family.
 
Countess Anne Dorte was borne out of the church to the music of Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender" while the totally filled church slowly emptied of guests. Left was a veritable sea of ​​flowers and wreaths, not least of all members of the royal family. On the ribbon from her daughter Camilla and her family it said "We will always love you, say hello dad."

R.I.P. Anne Dorte was loved and so down to earth. Truly sad that she has passed away.

I find it highly inappropriate that le grand roi Henri decided to go back and forth between the hunt and the funeral. Surely a funeral is more important than a silly hunt? That man has no manners whatsoever.
