This happened during the press conference to the Dutch press before the upcoming state visit by WaxMax Crazy hazeleyes called us to this on the Marge and Henrik news topic, and since then several articles were published about it in Denmark... Poor Marge Crap It was so embarrassing...

The cover of BT today:



Big no no
Margrethe embarrassment: Shocks during TV interview

Therefore, Henrik can't control himself

Friend Erik Brandt: It has passed him on for many years

Prince Consort Henrik: 'I should be king'

Quote
In an interview with Dutch TV, Prince Consort Henrik said he will never accept nor understand why he's not seen as an equal partner to Queen Margrethe.

Speaking to Dutch public television, Prince Consort Henrik expressed his frustration and disbelief that Denmark refuses to recognize him as an equal to his wife, Queen Margrethe II.
 
“I have always said that I should be a partner, but I am not considered as a partner because I’m not on the same level as my wife which is completely ununderstandable [sic],” Henrik told NOS.
 
“All the queens in the history of the world have made their husbands king consort. Why should I be under my wife?” he asked incredulously as Queen Margrethe seemed to display a ‘there he goes again’ smirk.
 
Indeed, this is far from the first time that Prince Consort Henrik has aired this complaint.
 
In 2002, when Margrethe was too ill to greet guests at a New Year’s event, the Royal House opted to have Crown Prince Frederik act as host. Henrik, upset about being upstaged by his own son, vocally complained that he wasn't allowed to receive guests in “his own home”.
 
In a follow-up interview with BT, he said he felt humiliated to be relegated to third-place status behind his wife and son.
 
His interview with NOS revealed that Henrik still hasn’t gotten over it.
 
“That’s life, I accept it – no, I don’t accept it! I will never accept it,” he said to his wife’s laughs.
 
“Why suddenly [do] you have to copy an exception made by England 200 years ago? Why should Denmark copy England and not copy Spain or Scotland?” he continued, before Queen Margrethe gave him a tap on the back that seemed to be his signal to wrap up the rant.
 
The 80-year-old Prince Consul Henrik has long been the butt of jokes amongst many Danes who rib him for his Danish, which they say is spoken with a thick French accent.
 
You can see the clip (in English) on TV2’s website.

I do kind of feel that making Queens' consorts called "princes" is a little sexist in that it states that kings are automatically better than queens. But I'm sure he doesn't care about that connotation in that way.  Roll Eyes This is a little embarrassing.

I know some in the past like Juana of Castilla (Juana la Loca ) made her husband Felipe the handsome king and some queens in England like Mary Tudor but not in the last century

Where he's right ... but he shouldn't have said it out loud to the press. And I don't think that he wanted to lighten up the sexist connotation that has! That's really a big fail ...

Though as I said before: He has a point.
This is the age of emanzipation and it seems utterly unfair to make a woman consort a Queen while the male consort remains a prince.
Years ago, the dutch changed their rules so that consorts no matter what gender remain princes(ses), the heir no matter what gender would carry the title Prince(ss) of Orange etc. (Wimlex is the first in 4 generations to carry that title, neither Wilhelmina nor Juliana nor Beatrix ever did, even though with both Wilhelmina and Juliana there was no hope that there would ever be a male heir)
I thought that was a fair and modern way to go.
Unfortunately they didn't reckon with Maxima's ego and there went the gender equality.
