This week's dates: Prince Henrik's birthday
June 11: Prince Henrik’s birthday
Expect more flag-ridden buses on Wednesday June 11 when Prince Henrik turns 80.
As the father of Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim, Henrik has been adopted by the Danes as one of their own since he married Queen Margrethe II in 1967.
Henrik’s many interests and exploits include works of poetry (see above), sculpture, music compositions, gastronomy and producing his own wine in France.
