May he RIP, I didn't realise he had been ill. My condolences to the Ferner family and the rest of the NRF.

How sad. I am a great fan of Astrid, and I always thought Mr. Ferner was a very good man. Do we know when the funeral will be? Will it be public at all?

No, not yet. I reckon that the funeral will be held in the Royal Chapel, and that there will be a private ceremony, but we may get some pictures, videos from the chapel.

From the website of the court:
The funeral is on Monday, 2nd February at 13.00.
The funeral will take place without media coverage. There will be a separate area for accredited press outside Holmenkollen Chapel.
A small pool consisting of NRK and NTB Scanpix will have the opportunity to photograph the coffin before the funeral at Holmenkollen Chapel. The flag at the palace will be on half mast during the ceremony

The Kongsseteren or Royal Lodge is located quite close to Holmenkollen Chapel.

That's a beautiful little church, very homely looking.
Will Mr. Ferner be buried at the royal cemetary?

There is no Royal Cemetery in Norway like in Sweden. King Haakon, Queen Maud, King Olav and Crown Princess Märtha where buried in the Croyal Crypt at Akershus Castle. And the grave of Princess Ranghild is at the Cemetery near Asker Church.

Holmenkollen Chapel burnt down in the early 90s, and Princess Astrid, who loved the building, was central in the fundraising efforts to have it rebuilt. At least two (maybe all?) of her children were baptized there, and her son Alexander was married there.

Nothing has been announced about where Johan will be buried. Dag Hoelseth says that the Ferners have a family plot at Vestre Gravlund in Oslo, but he thinks that Johan may instead be buried at Ris Churchyard, because he and Astrid lived in the parish for decades.

Such sad news. My condolences to The Princess, their children, Families and the Royal Family.

I've always liked Princess Astrid, I mean when you can joke you can listen to radio from Moscow thanks to that one Tiara she has, you know she's able to laugh at herself and that's always a clue to me of someone I'd enjoy spending time w/. I am truly sorry to hear the Princess has lost her Husband.
