Danish prince visits ill father in hospital after leaving Olympics
Prince Henrik was taken to hospital with a lung infection on January 28.
Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik has returned from the Winter Olympics in South Korea to visit his ailing father at a Copenhagen hospital.
The royal household said that Frederik, the heir to Denmark’s throne, was joined by his mother, Queen Margrethe, and his wife during the visit late on Friday.
The queen’s French-born husband, 83-year-old Prince Henrik, was taken to hospital with a lung infection on January 28.
Last year, the palace announced Henrik was suffering from dementia.
The palace said on Friday that Frederik, an International Olympic Committee member, left the Winter Games in Pyeongchang because his father’s condition had “seriously worsened”.
