Princess Benedikte was in Denmark on an official assignment, when her husband slept quietly into the home in the town of bad Berleburg in Germany.
Since she took the couple's three children, as well as the entire Danish royal family parting with the outspoken Richard, who never went out of the way for a fresh note, at a large funeral in his hometown.
Now - more than a year and a half after the death - telling 74-year-old Benedikte of life as a widow in an interview with the weekly magazine Sunday.
- of Course, there is a need. My husband had a good life and was in the happy situation, that he closed his eyes, and then it was over. Without forsvarsel. Others experience a long and agonizing time before, which is very painful for both the sick and the relatives. When it should be, is it to be allowed to close his eyes, and then it's over, after all, a gift. Even though I think that it was too early.

Either Benedikte or Richard laid the hide on, that they were not the type of couple who 'sat the thighs of each other', and it also makes it a little easier to tackle to be alone, she felt.
- It is not new for me as it is for many others. And it must be terribly difficult. But I miss him. When there is one or another amusing perhaps, I think of how annoying it is that he is not here to experience it along with us, she explains to the magazine.
