    Queen Anne Marie of Greece, the youngest daughter of Denmark's ailing King Frederik, arrived on Copenhagen on Tuesday (4 January), to visit her father. The 72-year-old king is in hospital in the Danish capital suffering from heart trouble and influenza.

    According to a medical bulletin issued on Wednesday (5 January) King Frederik's condition hasn't significantly changed. A bulletin the day before said that his general condition had slightly weakened.

    SYNOPSIS: A Spanish airliner from Madrid lands in Copenhagen.... aboard is Queen Anne-Marie of Greece. She's the youngest daughter of Denmark's ailing King Frederik. Waiting to meet her on Tuesday were Denmark's Queen Ingrid... the King's wife... and another of his three daughters. Queen Anne-Marie is the wife of Greece's King Constantine. (PAUSE ON SECOND) The 72-year-old Danish King suffered a heart attack on Monday while being treated for influenza. A hospital bulletin on Tuesday said his general condition had "slightly deteriorated". On Wednesday the hospital said he's had a fairly quiet night but his general condition wasn't significantly changed.

    The King's eldest daughter, Princess Margrethe, is the heiress to the throne. She's been assuming her father's official duties for the duration of his illness. She'll eventually become Denmark's first crowned Queen Regent of Denmark when she succeeds him.

    The King's family have been visiting him here... at Copenhagen City Hospital. A Copenhagen newspaper speculated that the illness may make it necessary for the King to resign. The paper said it was obvious he was finding his public duties were a burden.
