Memorial service for tsunami victims

2 January 2005

Many Danish tourists were involved in the tsunami that hit South East Asia on Boxing Day 2004. In Denmark a national day of mourning was held with a 2 minute silence and a national remembrance service for the victims in Copenhagen's Vor Frue church.

Along with prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the royal family was present: queen Margrethe II, prince Henrik, the crown princely couple, prince Joachim and princess Alexandra (seperated but not yet divorced).

Also present were Mary's lady-in-waiting countess Victoria Bernstoff-Gyldensteen and chief of court Per Thornit.
