Accompanied by Zahi Hawas, head of Egyptian Antiquities, Prince Henrick visited the pyramids plateau to see the Great Pyramids and then the tombs of the pyramid workers where excavations are still taking place. He was then taken to the tomb of priest Kai, who was contemporary to King Khufu (r. 2551 - 2528).
The tomb features a very beautiful relief of Kai’s daughter as she places her arms affectionately around the neck of her father.

Prince Henrick remained in Egypt for one week and left back to Denmark on 23 February.

Prince Henrick, born Henri-Marie-Jean-André Count de Laborde de Monpezat, was born on 11 June 1934 at Talence, Gironde in France. He married Queen Margrethe II on 10 June 1967.
