The Danish Royal Familly followed Prince Henrik’s hearse to the church and watched on the streets as he was taken inside.

Hundreds of people lined the streets to see The Queen’s husband on his final journey, watching respectfully from the side of the road.

Prince Henrik’s coffin is made of wood which was taken from places close to his heart.

The coffin’s upper locking pin is made from ash tree from Fredensborg Palace, the centre is made of the pine tree from the Château de Cayx and the bottom locking pin is made from wood taken from Gråsten Castle.

Placed on the coffin is the Prince’s flag with his coat of arms.
