Princess Mary's father-in-law Prince Henrik of Denmark, who chafed at not being made king, dies aged 83
Denmark's Prince Henrik, who publicly vented his frustration at not being the social equal of his wife, Queen Margrethe, and refused to be buried with her, has died at the age of 83.
The French-born prince, who was the father-in-law of Australian-born Crown Princess Mary, was diagnosed with a benign tumour two weeks ago.
As a member of Denmark's royal family, he held honorary ranks of general in the Danish army and air force, and was an admiral in the navy.
Henrik has two sons with the queen, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim.
