Was Crown Princess Victoria the only foreign Royal to attend?

Yes, it seems so, if you don't count the widow and daughter of prince Carl Bernadotte (princess Ragnhild's maternal uncle) as royals.

I'm rather surprised that there was no one from Belgium (and also Luxembourg). Ragnhild and Albert were first cousins after all.

a video VGTV The end is very touching, when they all leave.
It's nice that Crown Princess Victoria and the widow and daughter of prince Carl Bernadotte (thanks for identifying!) were present as well.
The picture of CP Victoria together with Erling Lorentzen is so touching.

I'd say because she was there representing her father. Carl Gustaf would have been seated in front row.

Thanks I hadn't noticed Carl Bernadotte's daughter but I'll have another look!

Very interesting pictures. Thank you for providing links. Princess Victoria so kind to hold the arm of Erling Lorentzen. This must be the chapel where Princess Ragnhild was baptized as a child.

Very odd that no representatives from either the Belgium or Luxembourg royal famillies attended considering the blood-relationshp. Perhaps someone could comment on whether or not there is a "close" relationship -- perhaps the fact the Queen Astrid died at such a young age and Leopold remarried had something to do with it?

I would guess that it has more to do with the fact that princess Ragnhild have lived in Brazil since the mid-1950ies, and haven't had much contact with the Belgian and Luxembourg royal families after that. The only one who have any connection with Ragnhild would be king Albert, but it would be unlikely that he would have gone to a private funeral. I doubt that the younger members (Henri, Philippe and their siblings) have met Ragnhild more than a few times.

I remember reading somewhere that both the Belgian and Norwegian royal children spent summer holidays with their grandparents in Sweden, but World War II put an end on those visits.

No, in today's world, he would be Prince Erling (I guess), and a fine looking prince like Prince Daniel.
Here is a picture of the family in Rio 1980 - daughter Ingeborg Lorentzen and her husband Paulo Ribeiro, Princess Ragnhild, Erling Lorentzen, and in the front the youngest child Ragnhild Alexandra (she was 12 years old then).

I had somehow expected Danish RF attendance, but then on second thought, noone from Denmark was particularly close to Princess Ragnhild;
the younger generation have busy schedules and the regal couple are abroad.
The Swedish attendance makes sense considering Princess Ragnhild was half Swedish.....

It was a very small and private funeral and I think only those that they asked were present. As to being busy . . . sadly one is never too busy to attend a funeral.
