Prince Henrik of Denmark, husband of the Queen of Denmark and a published poet, has died at 83.

In 2014 and 2017 he was part of the artistic team of Verdensballetten – a Danish festival with dancers from London’s Royal Ballet, the Mariinsky Ballet and Staatsballett Berlin – in which he created choreography based on his poem “Côte á côte”, to music by Fauré.
