Queen Margrethe II of Denmark has reacted with great sadness to the death of her brother-in-law King Constantine of Greece.

A statement read: “It is with great sadness that Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family have learned that His Majesty King Constantine II of Greece passed away on Tuesday evening.
The thoughts of the Royal Family at this time go out to Her Majesty Queen Anne-Marie and the entire Greek family.
King Constantine was born in Greece in 1940 as the son of King Paul and Queen Friederike. King Constantine took over the Greek throne after his father in 1964 and married the Danish princess Anne-Marie in the same year.
The royal couple lived in Rome and London respectively from 1967 to 2013, after which they settled in Greece again.
In 1974, the monarchy in Greece was abolished by referendum.

From Amalienborg, the flags are flying at half-mast today.”
