Your Majesty

On behalf of the Faroese government and the Faroese people I would like to express our deepest sorrow and condolences following the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Henrik.

Your Majesty has paid several memorable visits to the Faroe Islands alongside His Royal Highness Prince Henrik. Especially your last visit in 2010 leaves behind a beautiful memory of His Royal Highness Prince Henrik’s cheerful and warm being as well as his sincere interest in the Faroe Islands. Your highly regarded husband was popular in the Faroe Islands and he will be missed.

Allow me to wish Your Majesty, Your sons and the entire Royal Family God’s blessing and strength to get through the grief. The Faroe Islands stand together with The Royal House and the Danish people in these difficult times.
