Denmark's Prince Henrik, who publicly vented his frustration at not being the social equal of his wife, Queen Margrethe, and refused to be buried with her, has died at the age of 83.

The Prince died "peacefully in his sleep" at Fredensborg Castle, a statement from the royal family said, adding "Her Majesty the Queen and the two sons were at his side".

The French-born prince, who was the father-in-law of Australian-born Crown Princess Mary, was diagnosed with a benign tumour two weeks ago.

He had been hospitalised following an illness that began during a private trip to Egypt.

I just wonder now if HM Queen Margrethe II will abdicate within the next 12 months in favour of Frederick.

The Rev. Billy Graham, a North Carolina farmer’s son who preached to millions in stadium events he called crusades, becoming a pastor to presidents and the nation’s best-known Christian evangelist for more than 60 years, died on Wednesday at his home in Montreat, N.C. He was 99.

His death was confirmed by Jeremy Blume, a spokesman for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Mr. Graham had dealt with a number of illnesses in his last years, including prostate cancer, hydrocephalus (a buildup of fluid in the brain) and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
