Princess Astrid does a lot of work with dyslexic children. After her elder sister, Princess Ragnhild Alexandra, got married, Princess Astrid became the First Lady of Norway until her brother married Sonja Haraldsen (now HM Queen Sonja).

Full Name: Astrid Maud Ingeborg
Born: February 12, 1932, Oslo, Norway

Husband: Johan Martin Ferner (married January 12, 1961)

Children: Cathrine (b. 1962), Benedikte (b. 1963), Alexander (b. 1965), Elisabeth (b. 1969) and Carl Christian (b. 1972).

Princess Astrid has five grandchildren:

Sebastian Ferner Johansen (the son of daughter Cathrine), born in 1990
Madeleine Ferner Johansen (the daughter of Cathrine), born in 1993
Edward Ferner (the son of Alexander), born in 1996 (he was born out of wedlock)
Stella Ferner (the daughter of Alexander), born in 1998
Benjamin Ferner Beckman (the son of Elisabeth), born in 1999

If you go to the following website you will find pictures of Princess Astrid and her family:

...I really kinda' doubt you'll find any pictures on Edward and Stella Ferner...it's even more unlikely you'll find a picture of Benjamin Beckman.

Princess Astrid was probably named after Crown Princess Märtha's sister Astrid, but also because it's an old norse name. Her two other names: Maud and Ingeborg are from her two grandmothers.

I think Queen Sonja was the only representative from the Norwegian royal family. I haven't heard anything on the news nor read anything about Princess Astrid attending the funeral.

Check http://www.kongehuset.no KikkiB. It is mentioned there. If she hadn't been there, they would have mentioned it.

Princess Astrid isn't quite as prominent as the other guests, though.
