Countess Ruth to be buried next Friday

The funeral of Countess Ruth of Rosenborg, who died on Sunday, will take place in Skovshoved Church in Charlottenlund on Friday 6 August.
The Countess will be buried in the family burial plot (pictured above) in the park of nearby Bernstorff Palace, alongside her husband Count Flemming, who died in 2002, his parents, Prince Axel and Princess Margaretha, and his brother and sister-in-law, Prince Georg and Princess Anne. It was Prince Axel who during a dinner secured the responsible cabinet minister’s permission to be buried in the park.


  1. Dear Mr Isaksen,

    Might you be able to tell me where I could send my letter of condolences to the bereaved of the late Countess Ruth? I doubt if a message via Amalienborg will reach them.

    You may send a message to me at aaronjamesveloso@post.upm.edu.ph

    Kind regards,

  2. I am sure a letter sent to Amalienborg will be forwarded (Queen Margrethe is close to the family and will attend the funeral), but you could also for example send it to Countess Ruth's eldest son, Count Axel of Rosenborg, whose postal address may be found at the online telephone directory: http://www.eniro.dk/query?search_word=axel+af+rosenborg&geo_area=&what=all
